  9197.     

moving on alone

dark silence flies like a little bird
and hovers on the fields
of our beings,

it drops some of its feathers
in the hollow spaces of our
chosen galaxy

the land listens
and so be quiet,
on this day, be firm.

look at them, the brightest star beside the moon's
half-circle

they have no wings
but they are slowly moving
or are we just
being deceived

between two horizons, a man stands and
settles on his slender shadow

he touches his face and then he is gone
in space, into the hole of his universe

i stand alone on the sands of my past
i dare not question
or breathe or moan
or step backward

i am still, and then my eyes close
under the silence of the trees.

  9198.     

moving on with our own lives

you do not expect me
to carry regrets as though i am the loyal descendant
of Sisyphus

you know me
you once loved me as i once loved you

i am fighter
always a survivor
i have known defeat
and respected its verdict

i move on with my life
it is my obligation not much of a right
i have no one
except my self

i will not see you again
not with tears in your eyes
for you might as well become my burden

let me see you smile
let me hear your laughter
let me see you happy in his arms
let me see you hugging your children
let me see you with your family in the garden
on a barbecue party

now, i am happy too
i move on
that is what i can only do.

  9199.     

mozart on my ribs

Mozart playing
horn concerto # 4
my ribs like ebony keys of
his piano

my thoughts like birds coming
out from a rusty cage
my heart rising out from my chest
like soul from my body

on the other hand
how softly the leaves fall from the branches of the tree
so musically numbered.

  9200.     

mozart overture

this is quite different from
a trance
the music that curled in my sleep
on that soft blue sofa
foam, cotton, kapok softness
on my head some notes of
a lullaby
some notes getting into
my ears and my nostrils
a deep sleep
inhaling

this overture is quite different
it is the rising from this deep sleep of
kapok,
foamy softness

i rise and
stretch my hands to the ceiling

i wake up and
i hear
the notes come again like
dripping morning rain
from the nipa roof
falling on
some white pebbles
on my pavement

like my tears
