  9633.     

on many nights with you

on many nights with you
let me thank you

i have felt this emptying
of all that i have possessed

i am now light as air
and so i must go

to places where
i can be full again

  9634.     

on mat weaving

we gather the leaves of the buri palm
sort them and cut them to desired
width and lengths and dry them
and in time
weave them into mats

we make the designs and
dye them in colors
like birds and flowers and
houses by the mountains

and then when we are finished
after such a delicate and
tiring work
we look at these mats
and then we use them like
other useful items

we spread them on the floor
inside the house
or we spread them on the grass
under the tree
and then we sleep on them

and then we make our big dreams
or the small ones even

we relax on our own creations
perhaps just like

making poems

  9635.     

on MJ

do i really know him?
no. i do not know him
for he was never my friend
and neither am i his friend.
we are different and do i really
like his music?
no. i do not like his music
or his person, even if the world
shall love him for what
he has given. Music.
can i say i love him?
no. love is a personal thing
too personal a matter.
do i need to pretend that
i adore him,
now that he is dead?
no. wherever he is
he belongs there and
i have nothing really to say
as important as his demise.

but so long, i have my journey too.
and it is not that easy.

  9636.     

on mutuality....

the beggar of a relationship is not blind.
his eyes are sharp, keen as the eagle's.

he may be limping, but his legs are perfect
for the Olympic marathon

he is in a pitiful state, not able to understand
that mutuality is a requisite for true love
that in happiness, two must dance the tango
of give and take, like cars enjoying the luxuries
of two way traffic, wide highways, accurate directions
on proper speed limits, full gas tanks,
good brakes,

and on long journeys, the luxury of having to
stop and shop
and find the best motel in town
enjoying the scenery on top
under the fullness of the moon
and the twinkles of the stars

in one moment, when a star falls
both of you, shall make some wishes.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
