  11573.     

The Banquet For The Spectator

the table is abundant
like life, but to be happy
i eat nothing,

i watch them all
fill their appetites

after this banquet
i ask them to take away
all that is unconsumed.

when the table is empty
what i have is full satisfaction

of course, i never tell them
i am polite.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11574.     

the barking dog inside your mind

it must be noisy
inside your mind
as you complain
about the barking
dog barking all
day long in your
lifetime,

and it must be
also unfair if
as you feel it,
you are always
the wrong tree
being barked
at,

so you are the
tree wronged
and i, this human
being writing
some lines for
a conversation,
shall always be
that barking dog
inside your
mind.

let us talk
let us exchange
places, or let us
settle for a little
compromise,
there is no dog,
and there is no
wrong tree,

onthe very first day
next year
at the very first hour,
let us talk,
as new friends,
let us begin again
as strangers
in a new place
wanting to know
what each street
is named after.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11575.     

the barking dog on the wall of the room

turn your hand side wise
and let its shadow be cast
against the wall of your room
ahead is the light of the
bulb
and again to please yourself
and be a child again
you try to find that barking dog
in deeper silence
in the shadows of the walls
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11576.     

the barreness of a busy life

Beware the barrenness of a busy life.
(Socrates)

bored as barren
a body that is bone-dry,
a walk in the desert,

dry as dust,
moistureless existence
lips parched,
a thirsty soul,
a life waterless

busy, busy, busy,
that is what you are.

beware, for soon
in seeking life
busy, busy, busy,
you lose it.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
