  5997.     

Cheer Up! Young Man!

Macte animo!
Generose puer sic itur ad astra!

cheer up
young man
do not grieve
there is a way
to the heavens,

here
it is inside
the heart

a pure heart
that sees
the true
face of God.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  5998.     

Chicago Moon

the aura of dusk
it walks alone at
segregated paths
you walk
towards a room
which can never
be your home
for your home is here
and there is no
promise
that you will come
back

no one figures out
the reason
for this self
ostracism

if you ask me there
are designs for
happy shapes which
time in some ways
shall teach
us
how to mold and cut
and finally
show


you walk away and
that is the end of
how we can think of you
what we have is a mist
and then
the morning light
takes it
away

i know how cold it is
there
but what can we really do?
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  5999.     

Child

why do you ask
me to cut
a flower?
it took this vine
a month
under the sun
and rain
to make this flower?

give me the compelling
reason why should i cut
it for you, my child?

why can't we just
play with your finger
and point
where the full moon
is?

my child as early as this
i must teach you to respect
God's beautiful and
dainty creation

art is sacred
and we must make it live.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  6000.     

Child Ego

i push you
you pull me
we laugh
we lay on
the grass
we see clouds
our hands hold
fingers to fingers
more than flesh
and bones
we gaze
deep into our
eyes
we are more than
oceans
more than lips
and tips
it is getting dark
and mothers are
calling us home.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
