Looking Back At All Those Failures...

now you are here again
back to
failure,
just like yesterday
or ten years back
so many of these
varieties,

it shakes you for a while
but then you go outside, jump,
go beyond so many fences
and then you are free

you look back and you are not scared anymore
everything was all parts of a whole
and it was beautiful
 
RIC S. BASTASA

Looking Back At Sagada Mountain

the mountain
looks so cold with
its hood of fog

the flowers are curious
the houses mum

we take the early walk
shivering on such a beauty

  9479.     

Looking Back To The Mountains Strong

when things go wrong
we struggle with so much
silence

sometimes a whistle can make
a good pretension

a slight tap on the back
a hug can make a good compliment

with us
there must be more to this struggle in silence

the years have been adding up
like layers of soil upon a hill

we dig into all these layers
to find roots

they are not dead yet
the trees may have no leaves and

all the twigs may have dried up
and when you cut it

each shall give up its hollowness
too easily in a snap of your finger

the layers are pictures of what we are
what kindness we extended to our shortcomings

we look back to see mountains still strong with their peaks
we look forward to the endless horizon of the seas

there are two suns now
you and I.
 
RIC S. BASTASA

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.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
