Lake in a Lake

Dr Abe V Rotor
Laguna de Bay, Los Baños, Laguna

Once I asked:
why did you secede 
from the womb 
and hands 
that raised you?

As I pondered 
on Daedalus of Crete 
and the prodigal son;
your clear waters 
reflected a face 
no other than my own.

I threw a pebble 
and ripples broke away 
from the question.
