  9197.     

of my mind......

it is 7: 22
in the morning,
i quit,
i am afraid,
that with you reading me,
i may cause
more harm than good
to you.

i am hungry and thirsty,
i am cold
and now in a hurry,

take your time,
i am out

  9198.     

of practical means...

for those that come
i am ready
not only to embrace
its whole body
but also to explain
the necessity of
its parts that i too must
accept and love, thus

when i cannot see the stars
tonight
i accept that this happens
often
because
some heavy clouds are here
and they need
to drift and
release their
burdens

and soon it will rain
and all the thirsty fields of the
earth are craving
for water
from the heavens
for their satiation

i have known rain
and it does not surprise me
in these cold times
of my life

& if ever
another big flood comes along
this winding river
carrying drift wood
and mud
and carcass of some
wild pigs and
wingless birds

i still must respect
what nature is all
about
its way of cleansing
itself

& then
on a calm morning
after the storn
i busy myself
collecting all these
drifted things
thinking that perhaps
early tomorrow
i can construct the
bridge of my dreams

or that house
where my new hope
must
immediately reside

  9199.     

Of shaken earth, of breathtaking sky.

There is a certain seriousness
about poetry which i sometimes suppress
with triviality hoping to set something more important aside

we laugh, we really laugh so hard, you must remember
when we play with words and exchange metaphors

i simply want to be kind to humor which somehow saved us
from our own destined perdition

fallen angels, broken glasses
scattered leaves, alien winds

when i am left alone sometimes, when you are making yourself busy
counting the petals, or cleaning the plates, or accounting for the spoons and forks,
or folding the linens

i cannot help but go deeper into the core of my being
as i beat my chest with my fist saying

poetry is a serious thing
no one jumps away from it like a parachutist
and then landing on the field with
the honors
that he did not die on that impact
of grief

when you come back show me that smile
that tells me
that something in you is changed

just like the way i take things now
each letter is accounted, each word has meaning
each poem an experience

of shaken earth, of breathtaking sky.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  9200.     

of shame and dignity

i've focused my eyes
on false gods

my brain knows this
and shrinks
in shame

i tried once to
embrace so much
goodness

i am drunk and tipsy
and i do not want
hands to
help me

it is an insult
because i can
always find my way
back home

nobody wants false gods
but in this war
they are the only ones
who can help

infidelity is wrong
but it
will take me there
with you

My Fortress
soon
I shall shed off all these
ruinous skins

When you come
by then
I shall be ready

Smooth, Perfumed,
Deserving and
Dignified
