  11589.     

The Beauty Of Its Unique Design

there are empty
shells and yet possess still
the beauty of its
unique design
holder of songs still
if you hold them closer to
your ears

there are too,
empty hearts and empty people,
who by their own
merit, and style and personal touch
are still imbued with
beauty and grace

they have their own beautiful stories
to tell
that only if you listen,
will amaze you to no end

by all means, do not take pride
of your fullness
for soon, you will be emptied still
like an empty shell you too shall keep a song
like an empty heart, you too shall fill it with sadness
which, i must not lament,
has its own
innate beauty too

did i not tell you that sadness is beautiful too?
that beauty is like a fan with many blades
wide and long and
makes you refreshed
in humid places like
us?

sometimes if you note,
we are simply places, not people,
simply numbers, not humans
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11590.     

The Beauty That Resides In Sadness

it is with great sadness that
i write
you a letter,
everything in it is all about sadness
it is not just about us
or you,
it is about the whole massive humanity
that is never drowned
with sadness but struggles in that ocean
of choices and so alone
amidst the
storms and the
other survivors

it is with great sadness that we gather here
and begin to hear
the sounds of all these forms and shapes and
colors of
sadness

i listen to you on an impromptu
and you listen to me
with all patience and with all sadness we embrace ourselves
share sadness with hugs and
at the end
we are filled with so much beauty
feeling so beautiful with
these massive sadness that
never leaves us free

we are bound, and yet when we face ourselves in the mirror of
ourselves
my goodness, we are so
beautiful

  11591.     

the bed

the bed is all that matters now
it has become the central solution
to all the problems of the house

I agree with Freud after all he made sense
for all those troubling years of his lifetime
that to all these marital misunderstandings
the bed has always been the solution

why do wives leave their husbands?
simply because of the unused bed
where time has been spent mostly for sleeping

now, i have felt what father used to confide
that the bed, yes the bed, is always the solution
even when both of them are nearing their 60s
and father did all the bed grooming

at my age now i must agree
i must say i completely agree

we always do it on the bed and the problem is solved.
yes, we do the serious talking there.

  11592.     

THE BEES CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT THE FLOWERS

in her bosom
the buds are coming out

she nips them all
self-righteous woman

the irony of course
is when she looks for bees

missing their stings
for she loves the pain

rather than the
joy of unfolding
