Inang Kalikasan's Bad Hair Day
By Recle Etino Vibal
Artworks by John Paul Antido

Inang Kalikasan wore the rich fertile soil and the clear blue sea as her skirt. A garden of white flowers, with all its beauty and fragrance, served as her blouse. The smooth brown bark of young, sturdy forest trees covered her from head to foot. She had the beauty of nature and life on her face, and her hair was a globe of night as round as the Earth.

Yari sa matabang lupa at sa malinaw at bughaw na dagat ang palda ni Inang Kalikasan. Ang kanyang blusa naman, gawa sa isang hardin ng puting mga bulaklak na kaygaganda at kaybabango. Mula ulo hanggang paa, balot siya ng makinis na kayumanggi mula sa matitibay na puno ng kagubatan. Singganda ng kalikasan, ng mismong buhay, ang kanyang mukha, at bilog tulad ng daigdig ang buhok niyang sing-itim ng gabi.
