Holy Wednesday Lent 2012, Calabash Road, Balic-Balic, Sampaloc

in the tree-lined road in front,

of what was once a cemetery,

quiet this holy of wednesday,

no crowds waiving palms,

no school children rushing to the gates,

no noisy tricycles poisoning the air,

no vendors trading wares of commerce,

only a few dare walk calabash road,

this quiet of holy of wednesday.
