  8397.     

just wait....

do not force things into yourself

soon, if you wait enough it is the force that shall go
to you,
it will amaze you with its
strength that you never will know
from where

put on your feet, be ready with your hands,
just wait, just wait.....
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  8398.     

just walk

just walk the lonely road
nothing happens anyway
except
the moving distance
the mirage

what life seems to be
is a running river

at the middle of this desert
we all dream of water

there is none but we dream anyway
somehow
there will be water inside those deepest
recesses of our mind

somewhere there will be an oasis
some palm trees
sweet dates and strong wine
and hot tea and smoke

and when darkness comes
i am sure there will be this moon
for all of us

there will be music within our hearts
some stories to tell
to lessen the sadness
to quell this madness
to fill this emptiness

the black birds perching on the trees
shall listen but they will not be sleeping

let us not die yet
the vultures are not that hungry

to false hopes we shall anchor
the weariness of our hardened souls

it does not matter
for in this lonely road we are only told
to walk and then we move on and on
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  8399.     

just when the rain stops

just when the rain stops
something within you stops too
the misery of being
confined in the small prison of
your thoughts

you find a window
and this wide door and you grope
for the key
to open something closed
days ago

you breathe the sea breeze
and take some salt of
life and you
release your sighs like
an earned ire

you take freedom finally
letting go your fingers and hands
your feet dance

go, go, go
your books on the table make the
cheering squad

out there
nature wants to be read
the books close finally
their pages like tongues
hide behind the thick glossy
hardbound cover

you are not a fool finally
touching the maps drawn
by the falling rain

welcome to the world
the trees tell you.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  8400.     

justice

justice allegedly is not arrogant
when it proclaims that
no stone shall be left
unturned
neither is it so inefficient
to take the pacing of
a snail

how do you like a blind
woman to decide your murder case?

how unupdated is the sword?
how rusty are the scales?

and how long can the hands of time
stop the moldy motion of madness?
 
RIC S. BASTASA
