  8397.     

let's have a little game

let us play
this small game
he that gives the smaller one
wins

i'll start
with a dog and you will have a cat
you win
and i will choose the flea in the cat
and then i win

we go into much smaller things
i'll have the bacteria and you choose
this virus
you win again

then i take the atom
you take the neutron
and i take a space of
emptiness
shall i win this time?

ok let's stop, let us try another one
something big, bigger and biggest

let us start with the size of our hearts
game.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  8398.     

letting go

let go a balloon into an air
going beyond tree tops
and you predict what happens
your fear is there
the bursting, but that is not
what i really mean
the metaphor simply
misses an important
thing in our lives:

we let go because
there is nothing that we can do

because things are more beautiful
if they are what they are

because they tell us also
who we really are

burst if they will let them be
at least we know what
bursting is and how

beautiful is the sound at
the end of it all,
the lingering sound of
silence

is it not soothing and
smooth to our ears?
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  8399.     

letting go of sadness

I let go
All my sadness
to the edge of dusk
Among disappearing
twilights
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  8400.     

letting in

letting in light
i set aside the curtain
and tie it beside
the wall

i open the window
look outside
and decide to stay

there is no walk
that is too appeasing
my heart is bleeding

i am staying to lick
the wounds
like a lion losing its
recent battle

i have a shadow
and i am looking at it
haunted by its
contours
i am reflecting where
the opening is
there must be an
exit somewhere
like light entering
a slit in darkness.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
