Lakbay Dagat is a lovely colorful homage to inter-island travel,
a journey which bring us Filipinos to our historical past, when ships were the only way to travel between islands.
What mystery is it traveling by sea?
The wind and wave whisper their secrets to me.
One after the other.
There are strangers to meet, basking under the sun's heat.
The ocean lulls me to sleep.
In our cube-sized worlds in a ship afloat.
Then we alight without a word, without a glance,
Of neither grim nor hope, of neither love or loss.
