  5997.     

Blindly Underneath Carrying All Its Own Weight.

you shall choose
between a gun and a flower

a room or a path
between an empty space and

another empty space
between a dimming light

and another darkness or
too much light which has

blinded you or between being
alive and being dead and

there you shall know the
limits as you end the right

to choose with an erasure
of what what was boldly written

you shall choose between choosing
and not choosing if there

is really that choice.
you end with a desire not to

think, to cease, to stop and
just be the tree that you

like. Above a hill, tested
by the seasons, unable to

transfer to another hill and
hence has grown deeper roots

blindly underneath carrying
all its own weight.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  5998.     

Bliss

the hills
are legs spread upon the plains

waiting
as some flowers spread their scents
on the thighs
of the valleys

the sun arrives
in its naked grandeur

since then
love, and love and love
has filled the
earth

winds so soft
and clean and fresh

the heart of the earth
beats
for love and love and more love

the sea is quiet and
calm

and then tonight
the moon and stars
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  5999.     

Bliss

at the outdoor
garden hangs
a yellow flower
on the vine

the air swings it
and its scents spread all over

watching it
is bliss
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  6000.     

Bliss The Children

NOT SO Familiar
with the English word
the not-so-well educated
woman in her
fifties says: BLISS THE CHILDREN
and the English speaking
world laughs
and underestimated her
in fact
humiliated her for
her mispronunciation,
but i know
as i know her from the heart
being from the
country where i grew
up to be a man,
as she is one of those
childless women,
a product of the family-planning
imposing First World
God Knows not why
she couldn't bear
a child,
it is clear to me
she really means it
Bliss the Children
rather than
Bless.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
