Pencil Sketch

sometime in 1985
you sketched an eagle
beside an egg
its newly hatched carbon copy

you wrote there
'for another flight! '
(muling paglipad)
beside it is a computation
40 x 3 = 120

can't really figure out what that means
but one thing i am sure of
you miss those college days
when law was still new to you
when everybody was a complete stranger

now in the land of the snow
a mango seed is buried

but deep in my mind
i sense that difficulty thinking

how can a mango tree, if there shall ever be,
thrive on the harshness of the frost?

Pensee'

the hours passed
i was just sitting
just sitting and the hours
passed
as i did not bother looking
at my watch
and time too in its patience
with all my
curiosities
in those dwindling pathways
of thought
and provocations
self-imposed like a punishment
of myself
for doing something less than
perfect
intolerant still of my shortcomings
i am and will always
be forgiven
for growing the white beards
putting more wrinkles to
my hands,
listening, passive, doing nothing
and by being so
have completed
everything, in
a longing that longs
no more....
 
RIC S. BASTASA

Penumbral Grace

partial shadow
between regions of full shadow
(the umbra)

umba! umba! umba!
umba! umba! umba!

and full illumination,
cast by Earth,
the Moon,
during an eclipse.

caramba! caramba! caramba!
caramba! caramba! caramba!


partial lunar eclipse,
a portion of the Moon's disk
remaining within the
penumbra of Earth's shadow

the rest is darkened
by the umbra
grayish outer part

a sunspot.
Compare

umbra! umbra! umbra!
umbra! umbra! umbra!
umbra! umbra! umbra!
umbra! umbra! umbra!

shower me the grace
of your Umbra Oh Lord!

People Of Yesteryears

it is nice to meet people
of yesteryear
saying hello and then the
usual
how's life
how are you doing
and then they rush
for something else
their cars are waiting
or the plane's flight
is an hour before
they're always going to be late
i do not expect much
i understand perfectly
this is a case of islands
existing but not fusing
touching no one
and no one touches no one
goodbye.
