Bring home the waterfalls

 Dr Abe V Rotor
Art Workshop for Children before a wall mural by the author in
his family residence in San Vicente Ilocos Sur, 2017, The author 
who served as instructor is fondly called by the kids Lolo Abe.
Bring home the waterfalls
to make it cool and green, 
and grow ferns and mosses
on the wall like screen.

To deaden the roar of cars
with sweet hissing sound,
break away the stillness 
where its water is bound.

Shower the scorched earth
but make the summer longer
for the kids to play around
until the season is over.

Lend beauty to the arts,
in painting, verse and song, 
in solace and meditation
from the maddening throng. ~
