  9597.     

our own dance....

in the darkness of our
nights
we shall dance
my love

just the two of us
and our shadows
that the moon so full
shall fill with delight

our music is our silence
oh, many shall join us
in this merriment

the sands of the shores
the leaves of the coconut trees
the winds of the horizon
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  9598.     

our own film fest

after
that you are supposed to
puff some
smoke in the air
to the ceiling

it is not worth
the talk
it is that which
is better
when done

in the story
i rise from bed
and put on
my body
like a pair of
pants
after
the underwear
which was lost
somewhere in the
silent
corner

and you are
left alone
wondering if there
is another day
to begin
with

i follow the
way one must close a door
not to
insult it with
a creaking sound
of
humiliation

but all these are nothing
but imagination
and just between us
who never wish
to be blind but have in fact
become
blinded by what we
are not


life is like that
and we follow the script
to be faithful
to the one who suffered
enough
to write it
beautifully
as though it were
his last
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  9599.     

OUR OWN GREATNESS

We do not need kingdoms
To be kings, we do not need
Lands and money to be rich
And be powerful and be famous
And be great to the eyes of men

We only need our simple selves
At peace within our hearts
Admiring the greatness of God
And His Wondrous creations

We only need this humble humanity
Inside us always looking at the
Others’ mysteries always thinking
The true world beyond us on this journey

Our own greatness lies in our being ourselves
Knowing what we are and fulfilling the purpose
Of why we are here and what we are destined to be...there
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  9600.     

our own kin

our own kin
name tags on my chest
genes in my flesh
our own skin
bearing our own family names
tattoos of our
marked existence as part of this
and that
roots
on our feet
and vines in our hands
wherever we go
we are us
our own kin our own skin
our identities as sons of these fathers
and mothers
as favorite grandsons
hope of the family tree
integrated
not grafts
but twigs and tendrils

despite our hatred
of the roots
we still are
leaves and
branches

how can we get away
from these that made us grow
into treetops
overlooking the mountains
of our lives

somehow there will be change
to norms
new laws for family ties
the right to take myself
from a name
to have my own house
inside my body
to get rid my veins of the
bad blood
to remove their nails
embedded on my toes
and fingers

somehow
know me as i am
and not a part
an extension of whom and
where

i have my on why you know
listen to me.
