  9633.     

purification

high fever
your eyes losing sight
of some images
crisscrossing your
mind

you speak names
they hear
you mumble some
facts
they understand

you don't
you are on fire
you are burning
with so much heat
your hair
smells of burnt ashes
you are charred
almost to death

that is how the
feeling goes
on this purification

you wake up
the following morning
naked
and pure and very simple
you face
the window
and greets
some birds
singing on the
window sill

your eyes meet
and they chirp
seeing
the new you

you stretch
your arms
and close your eyes
this is the beginning
of your
happy moment

PURPLE OPULENCE

purple petals in opulence
closer, hanging, in bunches
like lilac flares,
and cascading like
colored fountain
somewhere in
Chicago spring.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  9635.     

purple world

in a purple world
lavender clouds

a violet day
dusk pool

shadowy trees
black grasses

sickle moon
gray mountains

tiny stars
reflected on the lake

let me ask you
were you there once?
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  9636.     

pursuit of happiness.......

between us are the gaps
of years
the oceans are faraway
and there are no islands
that remind us
that somewhere or
sometime
we can be connected

i only have wishes
that this body may soon rot
and another body
in place to lead me to
your haven

or that my spirit shall fly away
like a hummingbird and
look for another flower
a dwelling of my
untouched desire

you ask me if i am happy
what metaphor shall i use again
to mislead you
into a thinking that fits my
puzzling state?

a long time ago i have all the answers
a map where i must go and find my
self as treasure
as home

now i only have that sense
that it is there and yet it can never be found
or if found
i know i cannot fully understand it still

happiness is hard to spell
how can i ever pronounce it perfectly
till then?
 
RIC S. BASTASA
