The Art of Loafing and Frolicking

Dr Abe V Rotor

Morong, Bataan, April 26, 2014

Let the world pass by - 
I am back to the womb
of my mother and Mother Earth
with the sands of time blowing,
shifting with the will of the sea and wind;
who cares about my footsteps behind? 
 Bury me free from cares and worries
and I shall be the most happy guy;

Make me a sarcophagus,
one with happy face, not mask of death,
immortality beyond I do not seek,
for my life on earth I am content, 
frolicking and loafing the most important -
the lost art of the Good Life.  

Bury me alive for a moment; 

stop the clock, hold the world still, 

hold the tides, silence the shore 
that I can hear laughter ringing
in the sands of time. ~
