Beneath the Rubble | Daily Prompt: Opposite Day

If you normally write non-fiction, post a photo. If you normally post images, write fiction. If you normally write fiction, write a poem. If you normally write poetry, draw a picture.

In the darkest corners they reside
Beneath the rubble
Beyond the light
Memories of the past and a place
A living darkness
A soul without a face
They stay and they will haunt
A wrong to right
No need, not want

    It’s good to know that we have at least begun to develop the potential of Corregidor.

      Yep! There are more tours for the island.

    Corregidor! I learned about it from comic books telling WW2 stories. Is it far from Manila?


    1. Mati Serrano says:

      That depends on your definition of far.
      In the Philippines, distance is–strangely–measured by how long you travel to get there, granted it’s moderate traffic. The island is 2hrs away by boat ride. And AFAIK there’s only one boat company that travels there.


      1. mobibrad says:

        We also measure the distance by the required journey time here. 2 hours? I say it’s close 🙂

          Wow. So it’s the same in Indonesia. Cool!
