Chocolate Hill Of Carmen

there was this man/god
whose love
was unrequited by
the native woman
who fell in love
with another
native, and he got so angry
and threw mountains
on the plains

legend says, the chocolate hills
came about because
of (again) a broken
heart.

  5998.     

Chocolate Hills Of Carmen, Bohol

Nagpunay ako ug saka
Sa tumoy niining bungtud
Wala ako maghangak
Wala kanako ang kakapoy
Wala kanako ang kalaay
Wala kanako ang pagkabudlay
Ania sa akong kasingkasing
Ang tumang kamingaw
Ang tiunay nga kahidlaw
Makita lang ikaw
Sa ubos sa langit

(English)

I keep on going up
To the tip of this hill
I don’t breathe hard
I don’t feel tired
I am not bored
I do not feel tired
In my heart
Is this feeling of missing
This true nostalgia
Just to see you
Under the sky
 
RIC S. BASTASA

Choice For Today

same stuff
different days
same evasive stuff really
moving hours
tiring days most of the times
but one makes the decision
to color days with summer
sun and cold winds
and beach
relaxations
same stuff but always
with different outlooks
renovating innovations
respecting life
enjoying bodies
tanning and resting eyes
upon bluer horizons
farther farther
imaginations dreaming
unthinking
things

under the tree
hands restive upon
the green blanket on
the white sands
on a Sunday
morning
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  6000.     

Choices

physically
the changes are inevitable
at the reunion
last December
we were all pigs and
elephants

our best enemies are the
mirrors
we eliminated the word
fat

some cannot speak about
how sickly we are

we hate to face this
plunder of our flesh
how much we have neglected the
basics of our lives

we justify
perhaps we have focused more on the
internal mess, sorting out philosophies
looking for the best reasons
for us to be alive

we drink a lot of beer
and taken too much meat and pasta

we are addicted to books
our feet shrink
our arms are shorter
and our fingers
are melting
like butter

to cut the story short
i for one,
promised: i don't need reunions anymore
i go on with my life
into the abyss of convoluted thoughts
into the ocean of
more deliberations

away from the run
away from the fun.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
