Shakespeare Rejected

not at all amazing
that Shakespeare in his time
was rejected
for genius like wine is fortified
by age
becoming so valuable
through time
and peers cannot understand
society rejects
what the world later on
values as a gem
discovered buried in the layers
of time's hasty
shallow judgment.

Shaking My Head...

on this month of
June
the mango tree fronting our office
is bearing so many
fruits

the children are happy
hitting it with
sticks and
some who have the money
use
the slingshots

i can imagine myself
being hit with
round stones

i shake my head
many time from
this glass window.

  11591.     

Shall I Miss You?

the port sits there
the waves of the sea begin its travel
you are on the trough
and the ups and downs of the tides
shall take you away from me
you are in the foams
and i am in the mist of the mornings
the fog of my doubts
has given me
what certainties i need to
make me strong

once i wrote you a letter
when letters were the trend of those
lonely day: dear beloved, i miss you
but i guess that letter (which i somehow
regret having written
signed by another foolish pen)
must not have reached your
faithfulness because your
patience has not afforded
it the dignity
or concern of an answer

time is kind
it makes us forget and even forget
and forgo and
teach us to live
with a purpose saying: go on, move forward
that is the only choice

now, i have this pc,
i have your email address
i want to tell you: dear miss sue
i must honestly tell you
that i am happier now
without you.

i did not send it.
coz it does not really matter.
i have my own life now, and i am
this fat, contented cow
grazing on the green fields
of my endeavor.

  11592.     

Shall I See You Again?

your long black hair
blown by the wind of the sea
you eyes closing to feel what is inside you
some tears unseen from a distance
you embrace yourself in the middle of this
ice-cold morning
you stand there like a lonely post in the desert
the wind howls and the rain begins to fall
you run for shelter
wet and cold and i see you but i shall not ask for your name.

i remain here also drowned by my own storm
but i am not running for shelter.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
