  11589.     

the celibate

as expected the celibate
has written a poem about a desert
the listener junks it
for it makes her feel thirst and gives
a hint on death

the poem is revised
speaking now about the princess bathing
in the oasis
singing
attracting the black bird perched on
the date palm

she rises from the water
her breasts supple to the wind
she is waiting for the horse riding Bedouin
to carry her
to his kingdom

the reader is overjoyed in this
and sheds
the tears of joy

The Cell Phone Syndrome

most of these cellphones
are no longer meant for communication

they have become
our hiding places

and we have become so
comfortable within it

that we do not mind anymore
if we need
someone to be with

to love, or simply to
be on our side and give us

warmth, they're
now our safe-houses and
we live there
most of the time
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11591.     

The Center Of Our Universe

universe
lies the tongue

warm flesh
moist, flexible
this little
queen
naked inside
our mouths

in our loneliness
it stores the words
and make us
utter

love
compassion,
understanding

it shows forth
how sunshine can be us
and how can we be
trees again
rising from the plains

when we are silent
it waits
patiently

for love to be strong again
until such time
that we are ready
to give
that kiss again....
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11592.     

The Chair and The Tree

many hours
you sit there on that
chair beside
the tree and had
a monologue
telling yourself how
she breaks your
heart & causes
you so much pain

you go to bed
early
to dream and
hoping to forget
everything
wanting to begin
a new life
tomorrow morning

'one does not have
to live longer on that
pain
neither one has to
be overwhelmed with
sorrow
life moves on'
you write in your
diary

the whole night
the chair and the
tree have a
very serious talk

and they say
they have all
empathy for yo

the following morning
the ground is all wet
with tears
and what all the grass
blades have
are salt for dews
