Swells that Compel--By Olive Eloisa D. Guillermo--Philippines

Swells that Compel

the fall moon's lull shows
mystique silence across skies
branches shadow dance

rice seedling patch strewn
upon well-plough watered fields--
globular tummies

from my bikini
to quilted silk evening wraps--
chrysanthemum blooms

rainbow processions
passing through cities thru-fare--
church bells count the mass
