  11589.     

Pure And Untouched

there is the other side of the mountain
made of dessert sand
nothing interesting in there
no gems,
everything diamond-like
is just imagination

when a friend asks about this side
we tell all these lies
that at its foot is a comfortable cottage
that beside it is a river
there is a white horse,
birds often make a stop-over here
trees are fruiting
and flowers bloom all year long

to be fair
there is also something true and beautiful in that
other side

but no one knows it except you
and on that same side of the mountain
you still make lies

afraid that someone shall take it away from you
because you are weak
and cannot protect it
from the invasion of the masses
from the shallowness of their minds
their incapacity to understand that in there
everything is good and can be seen and felt
but not a bit shall be taken

it is the world where the spectator must view
the world with respect
because it is untouched because it remains
to be itself

untaken, untouchable,
pure, and hence can never be us.

  11590.     

Pure Feeling

so you desire nothing more
except

pure feeling,

how can i write about
feeling?

pure feeling?

yes, without words, without borders
no laces,
plain cloth, sand on the pillow

mold on the hammock,
lost worm wriggling on the shiny floor,

bird flying on brisk wings
towards places that i imagine,

deep into the sea
breathless

i lay my head upon your thighs
without looking at your eyes as i close mine in full trust

you thrush upon me
in the darkness of it all

love that rebuilds my empire
desire that puts moon on my evening sky

pure feeling
no direction, nothing to ask and nothing to give

i ask sometimes if i am right
if it is possible.

  11591.     

Purple Opulence

purple petals in opulence
closer, hanging, in bunches
like lilac flares,
and cascading like
colored fountain
somewhere in
Chicago spring.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11592.     

Purple World

in a purple world
lavender clouds

a violet day
dusk pool

shadowy trees
black grasses

sickle moon
gray mountains

tiny stars
reflected on the lake

let me ask you
were you there once?
 
RIC S. BASTASA
