Groping.....

the language is barbaric,
do not equate it violence but with something that
we cannot understand
because no matter what we do
open our minds like windows
scrub the floor to start with a clean slate
even take the roof
at its senseless option
the vessel still cannot hold on
to what is given
perhaps the vessel is just too small
or the message is
egyptian
like thai characters or
arabic
we give up
perhaps there is nothing to be understood at all
but something only to be felt
like warm or cold,
or hot potato or melting ice cream in our tongues
yes, do not figure out
because there is nothing to be
figured
it is a jargon, a drool,
a language of feelings,
so miserable and
enigmatic simply because
the hands of thoughts are groping in the darkness
and there is nothing there
except the coldness
and the silence.
 
RIC S. BASTASA

Growing And Aging....

growing up
is to know what a ripe
fruit is,

the skin turns yellow
flesh soft
orange spots appear
sort of
wrinkled matter,

you mellow
down
and exude that
responsible scent
of maturity

that sweet flavor
of surrender

you know what happens
next to
the ripening

you fall, and there is
no regret
it just happens that
way

as natural as
what this world
takes
without question
or complaint

a kind hand picks you
up
your want to be
desired
to be consumed
wholly
is now perfected.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  7599.     

Growing Old Together

what possible option
can age give us?

now that twilight has come
its hands caressing our weary hairs
ah, there is something yet
that must fulfill itself that
promise to
grow old together the acceptance that
our flesh has surrendered finally
giving in
to the triumph of the spirit
bending itself to the fading light
of our
younger days

we shall be holding our
hands
as we sleep tonight
 
RIC S. BASTASA

Gtg

i have promises to make
and kilometers to keep
before you sleep


* a la frosty the poet.
