  11565.     

the cycle...

the flowers of my youth
have all wilted

but i am ready for the dryness of
these seeds

hoping for the next
sowing season for soon

i will be back again
with all the flowers of my youth

expecting to see you again
my only sun

and soon to die again
for another sad moment

under the warmth of your
hands.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11566.     

the daily poems

these may just be words
letters that one need not read carefully
as they are not instructions
or manuals for daily living
not something edible to eat
not a ball to play with on late afternoons
when you have nothing to do
not a bar of beauty soap for your face
not a lotion for your skin
not a piece of cake or a fried potato
for your breakfast table
neither is it a cup of hot coffee
they are not necessities of life
yet somehow
the daily poems of our lives
make us live
a day more,
an hour more of promise
a moment of more tolerance
another year of patience with ourselves

a night of nice sleep
under the stars.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11567.     

the daisies

along the way
beside the ditch
are the daisies
to choose

the white ones are
too pure
and the yellows are
jealous
the...

why do i have
to tell much?
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11568.     

the dance

they were dancing in circles
some with huge bellies
and there was this emaciated figure
trying to fit in
learning the steps of the dance
others complain
for he is not like all of them
the weakest link
perhaps
and they do not want to spoil
the dance
of drunkards

i wonder why, the tall lean figure
emaciated as he is
still wants to fit in and pretend
that he is enjoying the dance
of the drunkards?

again, another astonishing study
of weird human behavior

that liking to be in.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
