  7197.     

i decided

this is the decision
i do not imitate you
and in your justification
that everything is yet
unfinished
i shall not follow

there is this nice feeling
that every creation is a beautiful one
whole and finished
and seen by the eyes
as a flowering delight
like a window with an
orange curtain
a wall with vines
a stair with intricate carvings
of wood at the
railings

when i pass by
deep within i smile
my heart whispers
this world is whole and complete
and so
beautiful

  7198.     

I Desist From Translating You Again

...henceforth
i desist from translating
you again,

i will be lost and it is not
easy to be grappling in those alien
words that you constantly utter
without rhyme or
cadence....

i am lost now
drifting like a leaf upon the surface of the river

and you are there mumbling still
far away from me
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  7199.     

i did not avoid you

we meet
and then i greet you
hello
you ignore me
by shifting your gaze
to the bus
you turned your head
left and right
right to left
and i wait for you to mind
me
and i stand still and look
at you still
you are bringing flowers
i think they are for me
you take the taxi
rushing
you close it and you do not
notice me crying
it rains and i get wet
and i take a walk back
to the park
the winds begin to blow
hard on my face
i take a taxi back to my
house
i close the door and
i sleep
you call me on your cellphone
i turn it off

and then you write a poem
that i am avoiding you?

  7200.     

i did not change......

oh how time passes
swiftly like a multi-winged bird
mythical
or like a rocket
here in the now and then
nowhere
smoke rising in the air
and then
infinity

first it was his father and now the son
familiar places in a row
of chairs
year after year and
the year after

they have all changed
(hope for the better)
the child in their fathers
the hands of mothers growing
lilies and garlands

and they are all surprised to
see
how black my hair still
how steady my hands
how the bridge of my nose remains
unbroken

how i did not change
 
RIC S. BASTASA
