  9597.     

On Fame

it does not really matter
that my name is not carved in stone
i am not dead yet.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  9598.     

on finding myself alone again

i woke up last
night past twelve
and suddenly
finds myself
(upon a realization)
that i am
alone in bed

i feel so guilty thinking
(since you are
so good to me)
that i am happier
without you.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  9599.     

ON GETTING OLD

when i was a child
i don't really know how significant is the
mona lisa
smile, at first glance nothing in it is delicious
like a chocolate cake
or a red lollipop
or magnolia drumstick

i remember
how you snub the red wheelbarrow
what is it in a rusty wheelbarrow that stirs mankind
into deep thinking?

now things have changed
the sigh has a lot to say to the wind

the air has a heart of its own
the sea becomes a body of a woman

the moon a beautiful face
the night is not a place for fear
but for desire

romance spreads in the air
and the flowers that we pluck for play
may better be
staying to bloom at their stalks

we watch things rot
flowers that wilt and give up their gnarled petals

time indeed makes us different
when the sunset comes we become too cautious

we choose the words
we place our hands properly on the table
our eyes sharp now

to every detail
inside the labyrinths of our hearts
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  9600.     

On going and coming

It is a creation of
big difference when you leave
a house
and someone closes the door
and then you
gather the purposes from
the strangers that you
see
in those places where
you are most
alone
like you are gathering
different kinds of leaves
nothing but leaves
this time
and then when you come back
home
inside the plane that carries
you offering you
nothing but
the cumulus along the
skylines
you find finally someone
who is also waiting for
your arrival

the same person that closes
the door
is the same person who opens
it for you again

and then you turn off the light
upon a beautiful evening
 
RIC S. BASTASA
