Interactive

I write some lines and you read each word
A word excites you and you take it up to
Seed your fields where you grow your own
Shrubbery of words with tendrils climbing
I look at your garden of words and there is
This word growing into a flower attracting
Me I pick it up this sensual flower and I
Seed it in the lines of my mind now another
Bunch of words like ripe grapes I take one
Swallow it and savor the taste of its sweetness
More lines of words in my throat sliding
Through the lining of my esophagus so smooth
Going straight inside the veins leading to my heart
Sweet, so sweet I could have written the usual
Lines of “ I love you, I miss you” but I couldn’t
There is this roadblock, this writer’s block
The lines stopped, the words are stunted
I stutter, I retreat to my eyes, to see
The face of this woman I love, her eyes
Are gentle, she smiles at me, and waits
For this beautiful silence that gives her life
You stand there, looking for a hint, another
Word to seed the lines waiting to be written.

INTERCONNECTED

How can i be so in love with you?
the mind asks

the heart smiles in silence
for humbly it knows the answer

for one who knows the passion
also knows the corresponding pain

and pain does not speak that well
attuned to its loneliness of having

to suffer alone in that place where
silence is the only cure.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  7599.     

interconnection

find for yourself how things and creatures really interconnect
find how the distant sun
has given life
to the blind fish
in the deepest sea

how the eel finally meets
the laddle

how the foot of the man found its way to the moon
and how we change our definition of the world

and ourselves
new names, new outlooks

opening the window
waking up and just letting the light from the shutters spread
seemingly endlessly stabbing the dark

finding that life is so beautiful and knowing that in a minute
you shall die

yes, i received his email which says that indeed he is dying
believe him
it does not matter to you anymore.
 
RIC S. BASTASA

interconnectivity...

there must be a link between
a caterpillar
and the nail

on your theory of inter-connectivity
though we
most of the time burn bridges
break ships
and live on islands
there must be a trace between our
ashes

either those scars
or those new skins

words are growing wings
to fly to you
you have designed cages
however
to keep them
dying

my fingers want to touch your lips
your teeth grit
there is no truth to your bibles
where termites
build their empires...
