  9473.     

Now You Are Perfected

there is always death
coming
death has always
been here with us

it is silent and does not
say anything
it is us
in this delirium fearing him

we talk too much
until we are silenced by
death
and death still is silent

it knows
what the ripe time is
it knows
where it is taking us

it knows
that is why it is silent
it knows pretty well
that soon when we completely know

it, we shall soon agree completely
it is beautiful as it is silent
as silence is beautiful

it is filled with so much wisdom
as wisdom is silent with its beauty

it is the only truth
that we must abide

and after that ordeal of pain and
worries
needlessly the anxiety of the unknown
that is spread under our
feet

we are victorious with it
we passed
as we passed away
we join those who are silenced too
in full wisdom and
beauty

death shall tell you
now you are perfected.

  9474.     

now you begin to see the colors of my painting in words

sadness is painted in some words
that go like a monologue
stuttering at times like one grasping
for breath and yet
still wanting to say more,

you know at first glance
seeing some syllables
about what i feel.......today, the anger that gropes
for words

explosives and
screaming soul while the storms rage on the corner
of the shores

then you ask, needlessly, the words speak for themselves
how is it here

they picture my jagged jaw, my eyes that shout
and curse

sometimes i am surprised with the way my senses
are born
remembering the first cry, the first slap

how it was
for a mother to see my first encounter with reality
how it was

that i have succeeded to simply forget

the colors of the poems i have written last night
screaming red turning to patient blue
and then silent green

and then that feeling of having control
with the purples feeling noble
and the orange still
promising to live for another day

  9475.     

now you must remember

that the tree which shed all its leaves
have the fingers which touched us both
when we were under it taking the cool
shade and partaking a love forbidden.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  9476.     

Now you shall write your own poems

You have grown well
Soft hands
A Tender heart
A reflective mind
Going over the past
And finding something
Some gems
And they glitter
In your memory
Now, you shall write about them
They shall speak to you
And you shall listen
 
RIC S. BASTASA
