RIC S. BASTASA


the doors and windows


the windows would have been more beautiful
wider than the sea
and the doors
are as tight as the cracks
of the cliff so that
the thoughts may fly
and the secrets may find it
hard to escape
from themselves


mas nindot unta kon ang mga bintana
sama kalapad sa dagat
ug ang mga pultahan
sama kakipot sa mga liki
sa pangpang aron dali
ang paglupad sa hunahuna
ug lisod ang tinagoan sa pagpahawa
