The Last Fire Tree Bloom of Summer 2014

Dr Abe V Rotor

Paaralang Bayan sa Himpapawid with Ms Melly C Tenorio
738 DZRB AM Band, 8 to 9 evening class, Monday to Friday
Lone fire tree (Delonix regia) at the Parks and 
Wildlife Center QC burns in summer heat .

Regia - regal, that's how you are esteemed,
     red crown of jewels in summer wear
and veil of the reddest color on earth,
     lovers beneath they pledge and swear.

Every summer of the year you reign supreme,
     framed against the deep blue sky,
that makes a special place a Christmas cheer,  
     throwing confetti on passersby.

But true beauty lives but ephemeral,  
     more so because you know how to die,
As your flame is doused by the first raindrops
      you've bid all your friends goodbye. ~
