RIC S. BASTASA


Ang akong kagahapon ug karon


Kawras sa iring ang
Kaniadto
Buot hilison ang bukog
Sa isda
Sa akong tutunlan

Sa usa lamang ka mahiko
Dili ako motoo
Ang akong karon
Sama sa dagan sa sakayan
Sa suba sa loboc
Adto ako sa iyang
Kinatumyan
Ang awit sa mga tubig
Daw sama sa hagikhik
Sa mga bata
Midayan dayan sa
Himsog nga mga aping


(English)

my past and present



the cat’s scratch
is the past
wanting to melt the
fishbone
in my throat
in one magic

I disagree
My present
Is like the sailing boat
In Loboc river
I am going to its
End
The song of the waters
Like the laughter
Of the children
Flowing through
Healthy cheeks

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
