  8397.     

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.

  8398.     

letting in sounds, light, images...

a road leads me to nowhere
so i am not going
i want to stay with you
but you are not here
takes time to learn again
what loneliness is

at midnight i open the main door
open the windows
i let in air and moonlight
and some blown leaves
i let in the sounds of bats
i welcome the rain from
a hole in the roof

so,

who is lonely now?
not me.

  8399.     

Letting Life Serve You

when you write
some words
you always have someone in mind

someone that you wonder
because you cannot control her
because she has become
too unpredictable

as she
like a worm grapples with the slowness
of her movements
upon the
indrawn lines of the leaf

seeping time
like tea

soon things happens by themselves
without our knowing

how the cocoon's silence
breaks and
gives way to life

how wings grow from
arms
how minds open like parachutes
of morning glories
along the untrodden paths of
this earth

you decide finally that sitting down
is the best thing to do
watching has become the wisest
philosophical option

things unfold like letters
that we have failed to read
chairs open their plain smoothness
for us to be there

tables are always ready with food
shoes get inside your feet

life becomes a banquet
and all those that it had given life
is always there to serve
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  8400.     

Letting The Hours Go

the hours run so fast
and you are being left alone
in that room
where you still try to record
an accounting of
the past, as though you are into
a collection case
of those who are indebted to you

when you step out
from the door and close it
behind you
it is already dark and the
street lights
begin to make some islands
along the alleys

there is now a dichotomy between
the hours and your
own pacing

there is no one waiting
and you expect nothing to really love
that truly

let the hours go
they must have other persons in mind
who are still
in sorrow
