THE VALUE OF EACH PRESENT MOMENT Poem by RIC S. BASTASA


soon you will learn the wisdom of living only for today
as though is it the last day of your life

you begin to like the way the dragonfly hovered on the branch of the flowering calachuchi tree than the numbers found in your
bank account

you savor more the rich flavor and taste of the cooked banana ground with coconut shreds and brown sugar than your anticipated profits of a land deal somewhere in Alang-alang

you shall learn the value of today, this moment, this hour, than the future which has promised you a basket of happiness the camarin of glory the innumerable promises of life yet to come
and which is still not here.
