Feeling The River Flowing Inside Me

I didn't think about whether I was writing poems.
I was thinking.
And the more I was thinking,
the more there was I didn't understand

David Anti

did i have as my goal to understand?
no it isn't, it is merely to feel how i feel,
and keep a record about it,
i write like a river, actually
i do not know where i am going,
i just go with the flow, i close my eyes
and feel the
flow, and not ask where am i going?
for that is not the question
and there will be no answers, nothing specific
it is only the flow, and the sound, and the color and
the scent,

i am told, all rivers go to the sea
it is the truth, and i do not question it.
i do not ask any understanding about the sea when i arrive there.

again it is just a feeling.
perhaps, you may change the term

it is possibly faith
understated.

  5598.     

feeling the sunflower

feel the leaves of this living flower
pierce and burst
the dews still dreaming
this morning
the glow of the sun from the east
slowly spreading between
the hills

you do not notice
the slow unfolding of this flower
through its red petals
now wanting to
open from the hold of
your fingers

my living flower
blooms today
it is telling the world
what freedom is
and its purity

and its being so temporary...
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  5599.     

FEELINGS

to feel that one which gets under your skin
love's mistaken notion
about endearment of an irritation
one wants to get rid of that sting
not the one inflicted by the bee
but by one that makes your whole world whirl
and fills with the lighter colors of the rainbows
your small cluttered world

singing for instance under the rain
does it remove the pain
underneath your skin?

nope.

temporary remedies, like a warm touch that leaves you
alone after a very short moment
of contact

feel the feeling felt for a very short moment like a smile
a kiss at the airport and then the plane becomes a dot thrown away
towards the distant skies

nothing lasts
that is why, and i say i very well understand why people like us
whom they dub as lost and irreconcilable

keep on writing
we wish things and feelings last but these do not really

their nature is airy and is simply blown away and
no miracle makes it come back and kiss you again.

alright, let the breath go, it is not yours anyway.

  5600.     

feelings are like clouds

if you go by what you feel
you end up changing always
because that is what feelings are,

clouds, air,
water, drops

a feeling is not
a house it
is sand,

it is a face not
a body

it does not
recognize footsteps

it is hair
without a skull

it is a stranger to
the past
and does not have
a future
