Piercing The Blue Sky

the flag pole
of this country makes love
to the freedom
in the sky
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  10798.     

Pigeons And The Woman With A Straw Hat

at the bus station
the white pigeons hover
on the morsels of bread
thrown by a brown boy
from a window

a woman with a straw hat
on mini skirt
long legged
short haired
steps out of the bus
carries a red bag
and slips away past the
merry eyes of
men

the boy's mother
closed the window
 
RIC S. BASTASA

Pillar Of The Morning

the sun always
rises
on the east.

that is the first
pillar of
my faith to move
on

to wake up
every morning
and feel
the warmth
of the first ray
on my palm.

there is always
a beginning
to begin with.

now, there is
another.

the first drop
of the rain


i expose my
tongue to taste
a blessing
from heaven.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  10800.     

Pinch

i look at my face wrinkles are being drawn like a plow making furroughs
on the ricefield,

wrinkles, i am getting wrinkles,

i look at my arms and i touch it, they are loose now, like some clothes
hanging loosely in my body, emaciated by lack of nutrition,

i look at my hear, i open it like a pettry cash box, i see some scars
and some loose coins for change, i like to break it open and leave
it that way, i am saddened by this

emptiness, this pain,

i stand now in the mirror with a picture on hand of my youth

i look many times finding how
time drenched me with old age, my hands beginning to tremble my
mind forgetting more and more of those memories of my youth,

i refresh myself, i get this clip and pinch myself, i remember

i am still alive, and that is luck enough, a friend of mine just died today,
cardian arrest,
and i am trying to do some little thinking, what if i will be next?

i am finite, i pinch myself some more, some more, some more.....

till i turn blue, till i bleed, who cares?
 
RIC S. BASTASA
