Looking Backward And Lying Down

in this kind of love i look backward
to find you
so filled with desire and i lie down to
fulfill a promise
tonight
the stars watch on this agony
and the moon is filled with envy
on this new kind of love
between us
beyond them
in the books inside its pages written
long ago
by those who died and we were told
they must not be remembered

vampires, and wolves, and biting bats
moaning the nights through
and howling
for the denial

tonight between us we shall speak no word
the world takes a step forward
and reverses its orbit

we lead in this reversal
we tell them there is more to this
more, more, and as usual
insatiable.

Looking For A Valentine

most of the time, she goes home early
never fails to visit the church and pray

she has been this way, hollow, empty,
the prayers never make her full

sometimes she extends her time in church
looking at the other faces hoping to find someone

that may like her, propose her a marriage
that at her last trip to love, she may not refuse

or have the right to, she has no right to choose now
at 33, she prayed so hard, and gave bigger tithes,

sponsored masses, and offered masses for her
dead ancestors,

until one day, someone paid her a special attention,
and she promised herself, she would not refuse him,

she married finally the priest, and so the emptiness
from her heart, transferred to the hallways of the church.

Looking For An Opening

the guide for an opening is light
or water
on some crevices they always know
how to whisper
that in there there is an opening
and you must see it
and start from there
the message has always been
let there be light
so your eyes can see
let there be water
so you shall not thirst

darkness at the end had always been a loser
and dampness glows to a warmth of the spirit
what lies there soon flies
and the silence always turns into a very sweet song
there is hope
like a flower that grows in the wild
soon there shall be this meeting
of the most beautiful day
your feet shall begin to dance
your mind flying like a hawk
the skies all embracing

Looking For God

it was the wrong choice
looking for God
in far places

in Bethlehem
a tour in Israel and Prague
in Medjugorie and
France

what mediocrity and
what expense!

pause
and be silent and listen

all the while
He is inside your heart
waiting
for your knocks
 
RIC S. BASTASA
