Little Birds

at the cave
one afternoon when the day is closing
a breath of bats

on the hillsides
a string of little birds
like tiny stones
thrown to the fields

the sun is through
the moon rises from the hills again

we sit side by side
watching this gentle glow
this nature's show
 
RIC S. BASTASA

Little Black Bird

little black bird of Lia
flying away to Arizona

how is that little black
bird? what is it doing

in the desert? watching
how God paints a very

red orange sunset and
how the wind of the night

erases everything? Little
Black bird of Lia, what

is the reason for the
the leaving of devotion?

is sincerity still found
on that desert flower

blooming without water?
the cactus and some thorns

my loneliness deep like
the desert night, my longing

wide like the wind, my
illusions that life still

imitate art, that i can be
myself. Blackness and wings.

  9635.     

Little Child

when you have learned how to climb
the ylang-ylang tree
you finally find the nest of the brown sparrow
and you come to me
bringing four tiny eggs

do you not see two sparrows perched
on a branch?
do you not hear them singing their own
funeral hymn?

sorry, i am out of touch.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  9636.     

Little Comfort

at the end of the day
we give in
sensing the coming of
darkness
we settle
for what is given
deep into the middle
of the night
we are taken into
the secret homes
of our dreams

there we are helpless
there we are
nothing

we realize we are but
flashes of light

more like the
flickers of the stars
in such a vast space
of emptiness
& perfect silence

to comfort us
when we wake up
a bright morning
gives more
offers

on the sea
some boats some seagulls
on the shore
some fish
newly caught
 
RIC S. BASTASA
