  5597.     

emptying

after reducing mental activity
sit for a while and just remain there
sitting,

empty what you have
a dress, an underwear, an idea

empty your head
close your eyes

and when this happens
take the soundest sleep

i know you need it
for a while

we must be apart
sea to cloud.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  5598.     

enan

did i tell you
that a poet was not born in a day?
oh, it takes a lifetime
to become one,
it takes a thousand years
of sensitivity
to feel the thorns of a worm
the skin of the porcupine
it will take another thousand years
to tell which is green
which is blue
from the blind eyes of the
fingers
i must tell you
the poems may have come
not in trickles
for they come not but in a flash flood

in a flash of lightning
stabbing the mountains
in the roar of thunder in the bellies
of the tigers

oh well, they have all been there
we only need to discover.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  5599.     

encounter of the present

a young brisk woman stands still
on the side of the road
wearing a thick dark tinted glass
and a Mao Zhe Dong cap
i stare at her and she
stares at me
and then as i cannot stand
her strong gaze
i walk away rushing towards
a crowded mall

  5600.     

End It Well Like A Finished Journey

YOU MAY live upon an imagination:
a rosy world, one without thorns at all,
a sea without much depth
where you can swim from one island to another
a sky without rain
no storm to ruin your day

but it just cannot be
it just cannot be

the lies unfurl
they soon will discover the real world where you live in
in perfect contrast with
what you are not

you may still live in there
live there if you wish

they will know and will understand
you just want to live

just to live, and not to harm
they will understand and then
smile at you

and you too shall smile at all of them
who live in the same place as you
who simply want to live
to survive and then end it
well like a finished
journey
 
RIC S. BASTASA
