Nadia and the Blue Stars
By Francesca Nicole Chan Torres
Artworks by Liv Romualdez Vinluan
But what made this village very special were the flowers. The blooms grew wild in the fertile soil of the valley, exploding in different colors. There were loud, red poppies; hardy, pink dog roses; dainty, white lilies; and cheerful, yellow sunflowers. But most of all, there was an endless carpet of large blue flowers. From a distance, they glistened in the grass like stars that had fallen out of the sky.

Ngunit natatangi ang nayong ito dahil sa mga bulaklak. Hitik silang namumukadkad sa mayamang lupa ng lambak, at sumasambulat ang kanilang iba’t ibang mga kulay. May matitingkad na amapola, matatayog na rosas, maririkit na liryo, at mga kaaya-ayang mirasol. Higit pa rito, may mga malalaking asul na bulaklak na nagkalat sa walang hanggang lawak ng damuhan. Mula sa kalayuan, nagniningning sila na tila mga bituing nalaglag mula sa langit.
