  7597.     

imagination and survival

when all things fail
he resorts to free time
this power of
imagination
that takes him anywhere
he goes
this twisting of something
that hurts
the hard blunt edges
rubbed into the softness
of the
gratifying self
the unacceptability that
you volunteer
upon your shoulders
inside the crowded room
filled with mess
you select what must go
inside your heart
treasure what they cannot
see in you
in the long run
the only reliable partner
is the silence
the ability to be
despite all the odds
where there is no love
from other people's hearts
the mind must
create the persons
must carve hearts
must know how to wipe
the blood
and from there grow the
seeds of
confidence again
that sense of peace
amidst the storm
that loving kindness
amidst the hatred
that waiting alone in the boat
dreaming of land.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  7598.     

imagination....

as you begin to imagine
that everything in you is molecules
gathering together
to form a mass of what you see in the mirror
or feel with your palms
as you imagine yourself as a wrapping of vast skin
must you realize
that you too is immortal?
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  7599.     

imaginations at 447

you lay your head
on the pillow on a bed on a boat
bound for Palawan
what you hear
because your heart is broken
is this dying boat slowly riding on the waves
rusting upon its hulls
with nothing in mind
but to just comply and complete
the journey
there are no dreams of welcome
no streamers
no drums
just an arrival and the usual
announcement: we have arrived.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  7600.     

imagine

imagine that i am a hand
and you are the piece of
a mirror
and i reflect light from
the sun
so that others may see
the greatness of themselves

i guess this could be
the beginning of our noble friendship
