  11589.     

the artists.....

the role of a true artist
is to put order to the messy state of things
chopped lines are interconnected again
colors are categorized to a harmonious blending
a room of scattered old and dirty clothes
bedsheets in disarray
pillows on the floor
paper scratches and pens and ink spilled
the artist picks them all up
and puts them properly back to the places
where they must be

for at the beginning there was an order of perfection
but then this universe bangs itself against a black space of a wall
and goes into an accelerated entropy
a scattering, a chaos pursuing upon another chaos
expanding litters of planets and stars

and God the Artist gathers them all into One
Harmony, the Silenced Storm, the Wellness and Wholeness
of These All

We are all these Artists, God's Children looking for Peace.

  11590.     

the asker...

i hear the sounds of engines
running the road, and then the children
holding hands lead by the mother
there are screeches of brakes
a busy street, a mob of people
an entrance to the mall filled with
so many people,
i see a taxi unloading passengers
i chance upon a falling rain
and two lovers running for shelter
blinking lights against a dark night
smoke from the lips of waiters
clicking high heels of women on
shiny tiles,

how can i just be another disinterested
onlooker? how can i seal my ears and
live a world where i am just the only
occupant?

how can i cease to be this one kind
of child asking so many questions?
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11591.     

the assurance

worry not Uncle Miguel
despite the odds
whatever those be
despite the heaviness of
the inevitable goodbye
i still know how to fly

for my heart has wings
and i will always not forget
those flights of days gone by
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11592.     

The atom In you

This is a vowel
And this a consonant

A sound is made
A poem is born
And prose propagates like the people of the earth

This is sand and lime from where we make
A brick that builds the house of stone and palaces of kings

This is you,
And this is the atom that makes every you

It is from this where humanity must grow to become
Your world

For centuries this had always been you all the chromosomal evidence
Point to you, this is you from where the whole universe comes

So please do not deny it, you are the atom the source of all these

The chaos and the peace, the solitude and loneliness, the joys and sorrows,
All these come from you. Stare, some more, take a closer look, it is indeed you.

I see. You are silent.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
