Passion....

one thing with passion is that it is always burning
one wonders
where is the source of this hearth?
why are the flames so red and high that at times the become like
tongues of fire
licking the skies?

one thing with passion is that it is hardheaded and despite
the signs of weakness due to massive heating
exhaustion that sets in like a disease
it continues just the same as though it does not know what death is all about

the passion that makes us alive but which kills us though
a drug that forgets time's race against itself
this passion that does not know who are friends and who are enemies
leveling people like a straight line of the horizon
where the sun finally sets
and dies with the
darkness of the night

this is the last thing about passion
it finally meets eternity and somehow you just do not know it
when it comes and takes you away to its permanent home

Passionate Journey

flowers along the way
we pick like children at play
i pick the pebbles too
and count from one to two
and two-some we throw
beside the pond to see
how splashing splashes
amidst the stillness of the night
on this passionate journey
the moon sees us
and the stars too
and oh, without the sorrow!
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  10799.     

Passivity

it is different now
gone where the days when i pursue a dream
forcefully

bombarding walls and breaking doors
and jumping even from high windows

it is futile
forcing ourselves is infantile

ah, the flower does not move
for unlike the birds it has no beak and claws and wings

yet, the sun loves it more than anybody else
slowly unfolding, its petals passive to the caress of the wind

there is no work to be done
a dream unfolds,

we watch with all anticipation
there, there is the satisfaction
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  10800.     

Past Pains

like a train
moving towards
a destination

past pains
fuel of my future

one takes them all
cures the fall
ushers the soul
to the goal.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
