  4397.     

An Invitation For A Sad Beloved

The world has so many
things to offer
so many friends to
share fun with
so many places to visit
so many books to read
memories to cherish
mysteries deep in the forest
unexplored oceans to dare with
wild runs on the vast plains
views on top of the mountains
cottages to stay on the hills
grasses so green so thick to lay
our bodies to rest
warmth under the mellowing softness
of the morning sunshine

so why be sad my dearest?
why worry about what is yet to come?

come, come, i have two horses in my farm
let us have our rides, and have more fun!

  4398.     

an island cave

then there is this island which we brave
even with a storm

the boat is small like a leaf
the waves bigger than houses

and we are so silent afraid in the middle of
this confusion

we arrive there with relief as we sit
on a rock mountain

and then we are called to get inside
this island cave
of glistening stalactites and stalagmites

water as clear as air and cold as ice
lapped our feet and the sound of
slush is sweet as a call of

a beautiful maiden wanting to be hugged.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  4399.     

An Island Torn Between Night And Day

it is your music that makes me alive
at daytime i listen

it is my lust that makes me wander
at night sleep becomes a stranger

lust does not do the talking
it takes you to places that you know you shall regret

it is your music that makes me reflect
about what i should not have done

i am an island torn between two surges of the water
on one tip there is the day on the other there is the night

somehow thinking about these makes me a paper where writings
have become so illegible

how can i read myself with my own eyes?
how can i walk without my own feet now?

i just want to go away and find a place where light is always light
where darkness like sleep becomes another stranger to me.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  4400.     

an observation

this maybe something
paranoid
i just feel that the rest of those
who are there
inside the small circle
closely knitted among themselves
like some design
of a crocheted set of flowers
simply want us
or me
to be like themselves
on a code
of exclusivity or uniformity

i don't like it,
my voice speaks
my fingers hide inside
the pocket of my pants
my conscience sits like
a king
in the throne of my brain
my eyes like a lighthouse
in the middle of darkness
searches
only for my own
lost soul

let me be then
just be myself
unstyled to yours
unkempt like
hair blown
by the monsoon
winds

they say
i am wild and i must have
come
from untamed Siberia

oh!
i do not really mind
i sound like a barbar
i sing like a gypsy
i dance the ethnic
steps
of the nomad
and there is no
land titled
for me

oh!
do not worry
i get used to all these
purposelessly
