much water

if you believe that a cat
can be a dog by heart

or that the dog can
later on identify with the
scruples of the cat

if you think that a cat
can ask the fish for a dance
without licking its fins

or the kingfisher can for
an hour have a nice
conversation with the
catfish in that clear pond

if you think that an ell
can finally find its place
beside a ladle in that
old and dirty kitchen

if you somehow imagine
that a mice can worship
a cat for a god

then you are a deviate.
and if you are one, then
you are a revolutionary.

most of the people who
read this believe that
what i am saying is
fiction. And they won't
take it seriously.

if they think that this
kind of writing is poetry
then there is also something
wrong with them.

they too are revolutionaries.
they believe that something
impossible may happen
if it sound as beautiful as
the cat singing in harmony
with the mice and in that
orchestra the dog serves
as the conductor and the
rest are either doing the
drums or the violin or the
piano or the cello.

on the river the fish come
out with their open mouths
saying: what a wonderful
world could this be!

though our land does not
contain much water for
them to live and love.

muddy

The rice planters
Are all muddy
Except their dreams
of rain and songs

mudita

you look inside yourself
and you smile
the way things are growing
inside your mind
& body

i am looking at you
with all the joys in my heart
keeping your
beautiful smile
as a memory
that will push me through
in another door
of my history

mugna

kamao kang magmugna ug palasyo
sa tungatunga sa isla sa halayong baybayon
diin taralon mo ang imong pagkamasulob-on
aron unta ikaw magmalipayon
sa tanang higayon

maghimo ka ug paraiso
diin ikaw mao si eba ug siya si adan
hubo kamo apan dili ngil-ad
walay halas ngadto
ug walay mansanas

manga o makopa
ang imong ibutang isip prutas
mamati ka sa pulong sa diyos
aron walay mamahimong sala
aron walay silotan ug mag-antos

pagka-anindot sa imong mugna
palasyo man o paraiso
kamo lang duha ni adan ug ni eba
ug ang Diyos

mao kini ang imong mugna
apan wala dinhi ang ugma
kay bakak ang tanan
ug walay kamatuoran
