  11589.     

Reserve This Space For The Anonymous

be glad you have a name
the one your mother thought
when she first conceived you in her womb
the name the world has given you
in letter bold and big and strong

you have been there
on the mountain top and it was cold
and so silent

now is the time to come down
and meet your friends
and dine with them

you leave the clouds and be
with earth you leave that space now
reserved for the anonymous
faceless, weightless, empty
let the unknown be full and let it be there

you have breathed the thin air
you felt the clouds in your fingers
you have kissed the sun and you did not burn
clip off your wings and come with me

on an afternoon walk we shall see the sun
setting so beautifully
 
RIC S. BASTASA

Resolving A Grudge

forgive the shout
because the arm is painful
forgive the scream
because the mouth is full
forgive the sadness
it is not self-inflicted
forgive the brashness
it is not intended

the frogs croak
because the rain is falling
the crickets are hiding
because the children are coming
the children are making fun
because the river is full
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11591.     

Resort To Nature

because they prohibit water
and glass is hidden

someone has to use & avail
what
nature has given

the hands and rain.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11592.     

Resort To Sleep....

in search of happiness
one gambles
one risks too much in the name of love
or even lust
one puts at stake his one and only life,

then one gets it
satisfies itself, even extends beyond it
to such an avarice
of all those
darkest and happiest moments

what comes after of course
is this pain
that goes hand in hand with happiness

for they are always together
and one grips it
counts it
and seemingly to such an extreme cannot endure it
anymore

one gives up

resorts to sleep and
dream again.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
