In the flat plateaus across the tall mountains,
a mythical land with blistering fountains
adorns like a jewel known as Valley of Hope
A fabled basin where the birds of north elopes
The gentle wizard of autumn transforms colors
of the leaves into hues of pinks, and yellows
Knowing well that the change is the divine law,
and the autumn’s magic spell is without a flaw.
On the pilgrimage heavenly birds who falls
like Icarus, rests in golden shrines and calls
the withered leaves and petals to surrender
on the little graves on the way to holy voyage.
A land abundant with imperial orchids so royal
brimming with lovely Magnolias and flamboyant
Bougainvillea’s, here migratory birds make homes
away from winter’s wrath in cozy Mangrove wombs.
