  9197.     

Lazy Saturday

lying on a bench
my feet higher than my face
this is my world
upside down

blood runs on my face
paleness fading
away

Lazybone...

is there a place in earth where
happiness exists like a mountain
of chocolates and a sea of
brewed coffee?

(Translate as: a happy place
do you still like chocolates? or coffee toffee?)

if such place exists, perhaps i want to go
there and spend some time there
and then i will send you a letter and tell you
that you are not a liar.

(What is the idea really? what is the point?)

you want to know? Figure it out.

  9199.     

Le Charabia

i gobble words one day
when you wish to listen
what i want to say, i
wish you shall not understand
because actually there is no
use now
for understanding, since

not to know sometimes is
beautiful
in its mystery that attaches
to my
acceptability somehow

i feel secure staying
on a chatter
where the threads of my sentences
weave nothing

how many times did i sigh now?
you hear more of its gibber
when you decide to close the door
for me
when you close your eyes
because
i have become unbearable to myself

with all the weights
of my being
all concentrated inside my head
where my heart
grapples for love that is no longer
there

inside my path i meet
a stranger
someone that i love
without
length of time, there is
no meeting
to speak of between understanding
and compassion

i wish i were you
but i will never tell you

a silent moon a still pool
a boat glides soundlessly
and we are not facing each other
dreaming of wings...
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  9200.     

Leading You

i am leading you to a place
where you can be yourself
where you can be free

you will see a black crow there
and it will stare at you
do not be frightened

it will soon leave if you look at it in return
with a calm, strong eye

then another shadow will come flying in
through the window of your house
the shadow of the monkey-eating eagle
too it will stare at you with an intimidating claw
but just be gentle
and soon just like the black crow it will leave

and then you must stand tall beside the same window
where the two birds hover temporarity
you shall see the white dove
getting in at the perfect hour
it will hand you a branch with three green leaves
in perfect timing for the sun that we have been waiting for

you wait some more and there may be rain
a little thunder and some lightning
but again do not be frigtened
keep looking with that strong, calm eye

and then the time now comes for the cocoon
to open and from the window where you must stand tall
from the branch that the dove handed you
you will see the birth of a red butterfly
soon it will fly and hover in one branch of your heart

your heart is the flower
and i am that red butterfly.
