  11573.     

strategies for living life

when he goes out into the world
there are no arms waiting
it is loneliness that walks with him

so he decided to stay and close the
doors and windows

thinking that in this way the world
will love him as others expect

the rope of loneliness chokes him
and so he prepares to go back into the open

he dresses well enough to face the wind
and dance with the shadows

they demand that he tells him his real name
and not wear a mask and sing the usual song

he refuses to cater to a brutality
he goes back to his room and reads a book

and closed the door again
and he grows up into a very strong silence

confident upon the soundless nook and
expects no one to call his name again

at the end he learns this game of
responsible loneliness

the one that does not speak when hurt
that does not smile even when seduced by joy

  11574.     

strawberry lips

her lips can shape
the words
even if we are distant
like star
to the sailing boat
on the sea

her secrets are the
sounds
hanging in the air

i am deciphering
each word
through the luscious
lips
so red
so real and so moist
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11575.     

streams of the rivers waters

the meditations of the man on the river
how long will it take him to his nirvana?

the lotus in him is what i am seeing now
and his eyes do not mind the working of

this world. I see waters running on his head.
I see rivers in his veins. I am silent and still.

I am this pond watching how a lotus grows.
How things are with the toads. How time

falls like a teardrop, creating the ripples of
my breaths.There it is. Beauty at its core.

  11576.     

streams of thoughts

the streams of thoughts are like the locks of the hair
of a woman
flowing with the air one windy day

tonight these streams of thoughts flow like a river
to the sea

to your mouth to the door of your heart
this time
the exit is unknown hidden by the consonants of your
words.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
