Texting on Tree

Dr Abe V Rotor
Living with Nature - School on Blog 
Paaralang Bayan sa Himpapawid (People's School-on-Air) with Ms Melly C Tenorio 
738 DZRB AM, evening class 8 to 9, Monday to Friday 

Etchings on the trunk of dita (Alstonia scholaris), UST Botanical Garden

Whose names these are, I do not know
      In this age of cell phones
They dream to leave their message
      to live on through the seasons.

Words they live – they die in cyberspace -
      in the heart of a tree,
Perhaps to a passerby, tired and weary,
      and longing to be free.
