Proclaiming Independence

independence
is a responsibility

to know where
you are heeding
to know what to
do
what purpose
what motive
what good is left
after all
these cruelties of
friends and
foes alike

you are alone now
but never lonely
never afraid
never lost

there is no thought
left for the selfish
quest
automated to this
cause
for humanity

another year ends
and another years begins
not a slave anymore
about time and its
grips
but a master of this
universe
self-sufficient to its
cause
shining like a star
nurturing like the moon
powerful like the sun

for what is this
green grass of home?
your independence
homes for no home no more

anywhere is your
everywhere now
eye to eye with Moby Dick
parting ways
and this courage without
hope
this living without
questions
moving on, moving on

life a force of life
to the movement of the water
to the spins of this earth
with the whole universe
 
RIC S. BASTASA

Procrastiantion 101

piles of records
wait like executioners
have no plan
of putting my
head for the
cutting axe

they can always wait
while i dance
while i climb mountains
and see the fog
and the ships below
the wide expanse
of the sea

meanwhile i am sipping
tea
and savoring this
slice of cake

this slice of life
how can i let them
waste it?

i am stopping by the woods
to listen to the birds
i am roaming the forest
for the flowers

i like to stop for a while
and wade on the river
i like to flow like the wind
to the willow trees

let the pile of records wait
with their axes and spears
i will then offer this body
for their feasts...

Procrastination

in love with
wait a minute
talking to lots of time anyway
tomorrow is aplenty
postponing what
today could have done
efficiently

nothing does better.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11560.     

Procrastination At 6 A.M.

the book is open
page 103 is waiting

to be read and to be
understood yet

you are into something
more that pleases your hands

it is the action now and not
the contemplation

it is the moving on with
what the lips shall utter

to make you understand what
is losing and what is regaining

what is it to decompose and
retake the composure

you do not read between the
lines of a fusing self

the book closes upon itself
showing you the face of the

trunk, solid, stoic, and
bland.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
