Flying Is Just Another Way Of Living

the caterpillar feels you

how is it to be a worm
and how wings of a butterfly
come
as an instinct

but which you were not
so familiar
at first

until you fly one day
and for all the days of your life
and then you say

there is nothing in wings
that should excite us

flying is just another way of
living

and the worm in us in the past
does not really make a difference at all

Fog On Highway 5

we stopped right there
in Highway 5
because of the fog
and no other

just the two of us
the fog in Highway 5
and I

Following No Rules

...is like going towards a house
on a mountaintop
the trees there have
ripe fruits for the picking
lots of jack
fruits spreading a map
of smell
and you focus your gaze
and you do not know
which way
you follow a scent
a view
and you bow down
to a thick grass
finding your way in there

you are not lost
you are tired
the house is still there
the fruits are about to fall

no one has gone there yet
in your wild
imagination

a native tells you frankly
sir, it is only the top of the mountain
nothing more
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  7200.     

Fondling Just One Word

it started with just one word,
just the
I
and then it changes to
It
though there was an attempt
to use the word We,
as a matter of
transformation
in a certain reaction,

but in the nature of all selfish
designs from that single nose
to a single heart
to a hardheaded
sole mind,
unwanting to share, the world
shifted to the I,
the We topples down like
an edifice of mockery
people not wanting to be
with the other and the
pain concomitant with
the misunderstanding of
the We,
irreconciliable differences,
the need for space
and time

definitely there is no
They
oh, the flock is uncontrollable
and blind
and uniformity is abhorred
and looked upon
with so much disfavor
and besides,
the we has become
an expensive venture,
we finally go back to the
I, and since then
we invoke self-respect,
dignity, and solitude,
it is the I
that finally triumphs,
well, there is this
loneliness
maybe, but,
on the other hand,
there is this strength,
or even stronger
nevertheless
