  11573.     

the city and the town

this is what the city has to offer
neon lights, ambulance screams,
loud music, beer and ale,
a small room, a busy life,
a little sleep,
exquisite dinners,
late shows, gags, gigs.
but i have enough of all these,

i went to the little town
and have this wooden house,
beside a river, there are flowers
blooming and vegetable gardens,
and tranquil horizons,
a beautiful sunset
a brighter sunrise,
crustal clear rivers,
home fishing, and mountain treks,
and fresh smell of green grass,
and cool shades of trees,
mountain shadows,
full moons and singing birds
love calls, and fresh fruits
direct from the trees,
wild chickens, and
horses to ride and carabaos
to pasture, goats to feed
and turkey chases,

a very peaceful sleep at night
under the moon
lamp-lit room and some cicadas
in concert with the frogs
and crickets and worms
and then the rain
starts to fall
you hear the sweet hum
of the nearby river
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11574.     

the dignity of my tears

I will not blame the moon
For bringing me this
Pale sadness
On some pictures of grief
I lift up my face
To present the dignity
Of my tears
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11575.     

the islands....

two islands to keep
that fidelity upon their true natures
must always retain
the sea between them

with only the winds of
chance as bridge
this world can be intact
united.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11576.     

the little things that i can do

to be what i am
is first,
to affirm what you are
is another,
to be in harmony
with nature,
to live in peace
to work for progress
to respect others
to love God and country
but God above all
with all my mind, my heart and soul
these are the little things
that i think i can do well
even without my government
aiding.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
