  11565.     

She Is Sleepless, She Is Probing

They read your lines
They perhaps like you
They try to read you
In between
she is sleepless
And she pities you
she is probing
And she writes for you too
And you feel so honored

Comes our arrogance
You say you write
Only for yourself
For art’s sake
You say you cannot
Write for no other
You say you cannot
Stop writing
Your essence is just that
To write for no other

To write or you die

Be kind
Let them read you through the night
Let them follow you
Warn them though
They may have followed
A blind man eking his way through
His darkness

Without even a cane to feel his way.

The Virgin Mary
And Veronica
The crying mother
And the cloth to wipe a bloody face

Don’t stretch further
There is no Christ in me.

  11566.     

She Is There

i see some bamboo poles

lining up

on the shallow sea

she is there

watching some fishes without fins

without scales


she is there on some exclamations

this cannot be!

this cannot be!


the fish i know have fins!

the fish i know have scales all over their elongated bodies!


the fish i know can swim!


why are these fishes dying?


why are these fishes swimless in the sea where they belong?


yes my dear, the fishes and the sea, you do not belong there

the fishes are not yours and you do not belong to them

they have their own salty, slimy, scaly world,

they have gills and fins and round eyes

that do not blink

so you cannot tell them what to do, what to become.

in fact, you are neither fish nor fowl

  11567.     

She Jumps

she jumps into a pool of water
her hair falls freely and she
dives in the deep blue spot

she is lost in the fog
she creates the ripples in my mind

she rises like the moon
from the night clouds

i bite my lips as i watch her
she is such a lovely poem tonight
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11568.     

She Likes It Here

she likes it here
inside this small aquarium
she is the most
beautiful goldfish
alone with
her own
bubbles
