Destiny

(for estrella dy-imperial on her death anniversary)

under the tall coconut trees
you warned all of us
to watch out

you had not finished
saying the warning
when suddenly a coconut
fell off the tree
and hit you right
in the middle of your
forehead

dead on the spot
t'was you

we were speechless
unable to believe

how death sometimes
strikes

the most careful creature
still wanting to be
alive.....
