  8397.     

Like A River In The Sky

today at its wit's end
can be a chair
under an umbrella
beside a huge tree
in the house

today can be an orderly
thought
sitting down
troubles
letting things once
turbulent simmer
slowly
seeping under your
skin

i put my feet on the
center table
my hands on my navel
i gaze
to all that my eyes
can hold
around me

nothing in particular
i just flow to the air
like a river
in the sky

  8398.     

Like A Scar

do not say a word, i dare, what i have chosen is, too not easy.

but if i have chosen the easier one, of which you think, i can dance
there and sing with so many, or harvest the common fruits of roots,

i guess, i can speculate, or perhaps by now, must have come to the
conclusion, that i may not be spared with the common occurrences

of those who, by time have so mercilessly beheaded, stripped of meaning,...; i have my own mind, it was a radar deep down the sea,

and i have seen how the bigger ones devour the smaller ones of their kind,...it will not happen to me, and so i choose the color of the

commonly acceptances, and no one notices you as a different specie in
the market of ideas, and i adapted myself too well, and so i am treated just like a cotton,

not a nail, not a hammer, near a snail, slow, silent, meek, amenable,
52 years of being not being scarred, (but scared sometimes) but the masks are wooden,

i cannot play the games in the open field, the rain is too acidic to my skin,

i have a room, and it has a mouth that whispers its secrets to me.
and i promise it, i have no ears, and i have closed my mouth like

a scar.

  8399.     

like a sticky phlegm

life gets too sticky
to my throat, and like a cough
i insist to expel it,
but life has its own rules,
you cannot expel it
like phlegm
there are consequences
causes and effects
there are dogmas that
fence the wild imagination
there are metaphors
that can be forgiven
these guilty feelings
of abandon and welcomes
fear the skies
and know the wisdom of the
burying grounds
listen to the wind
it speaks in madness
hear the song of the solo leaf
this one must be
for you, lonesome fellow.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  8400.     

like a turtle carrying its own house

she keeps her
father's letters
wherever she goes

expressions of love
always are not burdens
she says
