  9473.     

Just Walk

just walk the lonely road
nothing happens anyway
except
the moving distance
the mirage

what life seems to be
is a running river

at the middle of this desert
we all dream of water

there is none but we dream anyway
somehow
there will be water inside those deepest
recesses of our mind

somewhere there will be an oasis
some palm trees
sweet dates and strong wine
and hot tea and smoke

and when darkness comes
i am sure there will be this moon
for all of us

there will be music within our hearts
some stories to tell
to lessen the sadness
to quell this madness
to fill this emptiness

the black birds perching on the trees
shall listen but they will not be sleeping

let us not die yet
the vultures are not that hungry

to false hopes we shall anchor
the weariness of our hardened souls

it does not matter
for in this lonely road we are only told
to walk and then we move on and on
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  9474.     

Justice

justice allegedly is not arrogant
when it proclaims that
no stone shall be left
unturned
neither is it so inefficient
to take the pacing of
a snail

how do you like a blind
woman to decide your murder case?

how unupdated is the sword?
how rusty are the scales?

and how long can the hands of time
stop the moldy motion of madness?
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  9475.     

Justmesays

How can I top that?
Such a beautiful haiku
about butterflies.

  9476.     

Kaadlawon

abo ang kaadlawon
itom ang mga kahoy nga nag-alirong niini
ug ang mga sagbot uga
sa akong tiilan

halayo pa ang kabuntagon
walay kalayo ang akong dapogan
bugnaw ang tanan
haw-ang ang akong kiliran

nahinumdum ako sa imong mga ngabil
ang kainit sama sa lamdag
sa kabuntagon
gihagkan mo ako
ug nadaub ang kalayo sa akong dughan

layaw ang akong panumduman
ang iyang mga pako
midagit kanako sa halayong kagulangan

gitaban ako sa akong kalibog
wala akoy nahimo
gitaral ako giwala ako gilinla ako
gihulog ako sa lam-aw sa kapakyasan

ania ako mibakho
naghandum sa kanunay sa imong hulagway
kaanyag ba sa kabuntagon
kainit sa iyang mga tudlo

gilantaw ko ang usa ka sakayan
nga nag-lutaw-lutaw sa baybayon
sa tumang kalinaw
ug hinay-hinay kining nagpalayo kanako

gitutukan ko ang mga butang nga nagpalayo kanako
nagatindog ako atubangan sa pagsilaw sa adlaw

unsa pa kaha ang akong itugpo nga mga katarungan
aron dili na ako biyaan sa akong mga panumduman?
