  5997.     

Even though I walk in the dark valley: a pantoum

The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want.

Even though I walk in the dark valley
I fear no evil; for you are at my side.
Even though I walk in the dark valley
I fear no evil; for you are at my side.
Even though I walk in the dark valley
I fear no evil; for you are at my side.
Even though I walk in the dark valley
I fear no evil; for you are at my side.
Even though I walk in the dark valley
I fear no evil; for you are at my side.
Even though I walk in the dark valley
I fear no evil; for you are at my side.
Even though I walk in the dark valley
I fear no evil; for you are at my side.
Even though I walk in the dark valley
I fear no evil; for you are at my side.

The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want.

EVEN WITHOUT A SINGLE STAR IN THE SKY

i have learned to sleep
soundly on an ocean of
a night sky,
like a tiny fish on a bed
of the ocean floor
without the protection
of corals

i am a prey
to everyone's pleasure.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  5999.     

Even Without You

perhaps i have to ask myself
why i mumble
like no other restless bee
that i can be
in the twilight years
of my life

do i refuse to see light?

have i fallen in love with my
own darkness?

do i wish the blindness of
wisdom?

is wisdom blind?

is there light at the end of this tunnel?

am i in this tunnel?

i am in a room with only one window
and it faces the road
where everyone passes tonight

this is the only passage to their homes
and they simply pass by here

i make no sound
when i open these windows
when i close them
repeatedly

perhaps i exist and they know it
perhaps they only have respect for my silence

perhaps i am to blame for all these
perhaps i have chosen silence
its golden sheen
its private space

i am thinking, and that is the most important thing that is happening
in all my life

even without you
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  6000.     

every closed door

for every closed door
they say another window opens

so? now you do not have to walk
you must jump from this nth floor
