  9477.     

opening up

like a bud i try to open up
one summer's day
eager for the rays of the sun
and the coolness of the wind

but then
something goes wrong in my sepals
the twig twists itself
and the bud wilts

something goes wrong
how can i ever tell you about the reason for the wilting?
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  9478.     

openness

a house without doors
and windows
walls and beams
entertaining some other
somber possibilities

the wind takes shape
the fluid runs and drips on the
four corners
the sun moves up and down
until the correct idea of what
a house
gets in

who once said that only
from the heart can
one really touch the sky?
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  9479.     

openness in prayer

the walls of the
house are thick
and high
the windows are
closed
and so are the
doors
the roof is taken
away
for you to see
the sky the stars
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  9480.     

opposite ways

that's the way it is
those who profess to love and be loved
finally find themselves
in their opposite ways

to love and to hold
farther,
translating distances, recapitulating dispositions,
transposing what-ifs,
wasting time
on the sweetness
of nothing.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
