  11577.     

that quest for God

always
something has been
made impersonal

faceless desire
unresolved thirst
eternal hunger
that no one will
ever satisfy

the silence of
stars
the distance
this longing
for the infinite
a God whose name
you have no right
even to know.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11578.     

that quest for originality

others are too conscious
about originality

what they write
or think, if you scrutinize it so well,
is never theirs

they're not the first to have
conceived
what light
is there
what darkness lies
what roundness does this earth
own?

i guess
everything is but a mutation of
an originality which was never
there in the first place

nostalgia remembers
takes in
what was there before

you don't exactly remember
the details
but you know the essence
and you
claim it solely as yours

what a shame
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11579.     

that red rooster on the stony ground

the red rooster knows
its place on the stony grounds
it crows three times
and then attracts the
white hen
and then shits its
dirt on the
cracks.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11580.     

That Red Tailed Fish

how i wish to think
that
that red tailed fish
which roamed the
small aquarium world
throughout
its life is
happy

but this is what
i feel

like those sweet slices
of pineapple
and melon chunks
which i kept inside the
refrigerator

how chilly can loneliness
be?

how cold, how silent
but when eaten

still fresh and so sweet.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
