Colorful Tabon Cave, Palawan in acrylic by AVR

I painted Tabon Cave, 
home of early Homo sapiens
who tamed the fire 
against cold and darkness.

its walls and ceiling, 
first art and chronicler,
its floor the resting place 
of the dead and living.

perched on a mountain high
observatory of land and sea, 
yellow at sunrise, red at sunset,
green its cloak and curtain. 

window to the world unknown
eons of time living in peace,
arched by the rainbow
'til man searched its ends.~
