The Dolphins Of The Seas Of Apo Island

they are our friends
these dolphins of the seas
shiny and fast and sliding tossing the foams of the seas
of Apo Island

we are on this boat
and they are on our sides
we are traveling to another island
of desire
where we too can be home
the dolphins
always following our destinations

they are our friends
do you hear them laugh as they play at sea?
look at their fins, look at their teeth
do you see them smiling at you?

they are not asking anything
from us
they are our friends and they have given us
their sea and foams and splashes?

do we torture them then?
do we eat our friends?
do we kill them and make soup of their fins?
do we deprive them of their oils

into our heartlessness?

think my friend, do you kill the creatures who love you?
these dolphins, these friends
let us learn to love and swim with them
today

The Door And The Windows

what i shall bring you is a door
of colored glass
behind it is profuse light
the one at 10 o'clock

what i have in my hand is the warmth
i borrowed it from the sun
what i cannot say is not what i am hiding
what i give you is a camouflage

if you listen closely and if you close your eyes
what my hand just gave you is the only truth
if you love me more than enough
you must not mention the need for windows

The Door Between Two Worlds

this the door between our two worlds
it divides the inside and the outside
the light and the darkness
the choice is yours

there is no lock
there is only the hinge that holds the door to its place
when you open it
there is no sound
and when you close it
there is only this silence of the air sealed inside our minds

my heart does not sing inside
it is muted by the darkness that moment your gentle hands
close the door

it is patient, the mind

the incompatibilities of the things outside us
are too inviting
they tempt us to step outside and promise us
the magical wonders of freedom

we feel so light like our joys like cottons and clouds
they are no different from our wishes

i am in the middle of this door between us
& you look at me like i am the last man of this earth

your heart opens with eyes too careful not to know
what i do next is the suspense of this uncertainty

your eyes close, my heart bleeds
my hands wilt, your mind wanders like a lost wind

the door closes finally
walling us in
it locks upon itself and

the world sleeps soundly curling its feet on the beds of the
heavens

The Door Of The Hill

i got nothing but only
wind on my chest
please let me in
open the door of
the chilly hill.
