Nuclear energy to power our industries?

The lessons of the past are forgotten in the hustle bustle  of the present. Nonetheless, we remember when we feel the pain as a result of  repeating the same  mistakes. As human beings, our survival depends on our adaptability; to change our mind-set when the old framework no longer works. We always have to learn that the complexity of our environment requires also a complexity of calibrated responses.

We cannot exactly be very proud of our survival because we are just,  several thousand years old in this planet; whereas the dinosaurs  survived millions of years yet they became extinct finally. Will our intelligence make a difference? Will be able to survive cataclysms and the often unpredictable rampages of Nature?

Remember Japan. The Japanese are very intelligent and very durable people of great industry and inventiveness. But they never  imagined the  nuclear disaster that came their way would be at such magnitude and fury. It almost unraveled the fabric of their society. It brought extreme suffering and unimaginable dislocation of thousands of families.
There are lessons to be learned here not only for Japan but also for all  nations. Will the world still care for nuclear energy for instance? The collective experience perhaps will tell us that, put on the balance, nuclear energy is not worth utilizing for our continued progress. There must be safer, less harmful, energy sources.

The lesson was immediately learned by Germany. It has resolutely decided to become non-nuclear by the year 2022. Other nations are racheting  up their research and utilization of alternative,  renewable energies which are decidedly safer to use and, if there are wastes,  these wastes would also be  safer to dispose.

HAEN KA?

Haen Ka,

kan ako pongaw, daing kadamay?

Haen ka,

Kan ako nagkakalagkalag, simong lawog inaaninag?

Haen ka,

Kan an puso ko nalugadan, ika an dahelan?

Nag’agi an taon , sako takang hinihidaw,

Puso ko naglulugolugo,

Ika an minamawot na totoo.

Ni anyap sako dai ka naglingon,

kan ika naghale, ni dai lamang girong.

Hinapot taka, ano an sarahotan,

maski ano baga sako nang ooyonan,

Siloksigok kan sakong boot,

sinaray ko asin pigrirong.

Habo kong ipamate simo, na ako nakulgan nin hararom.

Lugad dai matikom, magpila man bibilangon mga taon,

Romdom ko pirmi an huyom nin simong ngabil na mapula,

Dai mo inako sakong paglanyag, pagranga’danga’

Hinahanap an simong kasimbagan na mayo lamang baga,

Takdom an simong ngimot dai kang sinayod ni sarong kataga’.

Garo ka sarong burak hinalat magbukad,

Hogophogop ko makita taka magrambong na hayag,

Mag-tayap an hamot na nakakabihag,

Sa siisay man na lalake na simo makuring nabangkag!.

Garo ka sana nagsolnop na banaag,

Dai mariraw an tadang tingraw, napara sa bangging mayong liwanag!

Haen ka, sakong pagkamoot

na dai nanngad kinaabtan!

Mga Tigsik Na Erotik

Tigsik ko ki Bertong nale,

Sa mga huba na daraga bale-bale’

Napasukamang kalele’-lele’!

———————————-

Tigsik ko sa daragang gurang,

an kublit garo na dahon na aragirang,

Siisay pa man kaya an lalaking igdi matumang?

——————————————–

Tigsik ko an ginigibong tago,

kan mag-ilusyon nangurapot garo tuko’

siisay sainda an tolos maduko’?

—————————————–

Sarong la’gok kan sakong iniinom na arak,

tinitigsik ko an kaatubang kong mapirak,

Omaw ko nanggad ta siya an nagpapabulos rakorak!

————————————————

Tigsik ko an saiyang pagkababae,

Hawak niya daing panaw daing palnit

Abang siram kun makaipit!

—————————————-

Tinitigsik ko si Mamo sa Horoan,

Mahusay man sa inoman,

Daog pa an manok kong pambulang

Kun sa pagwaki, an paguurulayan!

Tigsik ko an nagtatagasop na haradokan,

Kan mag-agom na bagong kasal,

Daog pa an nagsosopsopan na mga kabalang!

———————————————-

Tinitigsik ko an rumansa kan mga Agta,

Maski sa mga sanga ginigibo, nakurapot sana,

Sagkod na mabari kun nagkikiwig-kiwig na1

Togoteng itgsik ko an babaeng luyos,

Naluyos ta daing nagharohapros,

Naluyos ta dai nababados!

———————————————-

Itigsik ko man an mga harakatak,

Nangalatikat sa tahaw nin paglaklak!
