Restlessness In Stillness....

....because i am discontented
here i am making it my own way, because no one remembers
here i am remembering me,
because.....
no one satisfies my hunger and thirst here i go
trekking my way
into everywhere, and tired, and
disappointed, here i am
making a set of wings for me,
these wings without the feathers of a bird,
these wings without need of
a wind,

because i feel so alone, here i am, inventing
company,
i give birth to words, and sentences
myself with
all its punishments,
this newly found joy in the prison of my thoughts
in the vast expanse
universe of my endless and
limitless imagination

this self without a river
this river without water and stones
this floating
existence

an angel without a wing

because i am never appeased
here i am exploding my own firecracker

a boy driving his demons away
with the use of one finger

because i have more to say
in this fear
here i am unceasingly writing

who knows if i finally find you and then
i can absolve myself and after telling everything
i can finally find
my own resting place

here i am, silent and still and staring.

  11602.     

Restlessness Of The Spirit

to chat after midnight
and to continue to read even
when the eyes begin to fail to see the light
to write
whatever comes to mind
another poem
recalling the past
mistakes uncorrected
a new word to redeem what the self lost
retracing the patterns of the usual
hands in surrender
fingers without thoughts but still moving to capture a syllable
fretting flitting
whatever
sleep that seems cruel to
dreams
this inability to choose to cease then i tell myself
i do not really know a thing anymore.
about you.

  11603.     

Restrained, Subdued, Standstill River

subdued
but never defeated

always loving but never
really loved

arising
and then falling again
to reclaim

what earth is always
reserving

clear, now cleared
the river turns into a mirror
to reflect

the moon and
stars
 
RIC S. BASTASA

Results Of The Poemhunter Poetry Contest For 2008

First Prize and the most popular receiving 3.6 million hits from among the educated and poetic members who taught poetry in their respective universities, for the reason that the poem has universal appeal:


Christmas is coming,

The geese are getting fat,
Please put a penny
In the old man's hat.
If you haven't got a penny,
A ha'penny will do.
If you haven't got a ha'penny,
Then God bless you.

Second Prize, receiving 3.2 million hits, for its being an open-ended poem with some matching questions as to the existence of the real segregating the un-real, the black sheep and his charity to a master, which appealed to the philosopher-poets in American and Indian universities:


Baa, baa, black sheep,
Have you any wool?
Yes, sir, yes, sir,
Three bags full;
One for my master,
And one for my dame,
and one for the little boy
Who lives down the lane.
Baa, baa, black sheep,
Have you any wool?
Yes, sir, yes, sir,
Three bags full;
One for my master,
And one for my dame,
and one for the little boy
Who lives down the lane.

THIRD PRIZE goes to the poem below which got 3.1 million hits excluding the votes of the babies, aborted, and the unborn who still cannot play with the computers putting most of the poets in a state of stupor, a hush, an effect of a surreal and magical lullaby metaphoric of sleep and the variations of the word, and its other connotations of peace, rest and divine quite:

Hush-a-bye baby, on the tree top,
When the wind blows, the cradle will rock;
When the bough breaks, the cradle will fall.
And down will come baby, cradle, and all.
Down will come baby, cradle and all.

FINAL INSTRUCTIONS: The winning poems above mentioned written by unheard of poets from the United Kingdom, Canada and the U.S.A. shall be posted at poem hunter in the top charts for 2008, and the winning poets shall each receive the most coveted I-pod. Decision of the Board of Judges is final. No questions will be entertained. The Poets will be honored with a simple and exclusive ceremony plus free snacks at the White House on July 4,2009 at 9 o’clock in the morning. President George Bush will hand the I-pods personally assisted by Osama Bin Laden, who is making peace with all his enemies

all in the name of poetry.

To all the poets in India, Nigeria, Mauritius, Africa, Malaysia, China, Mongolia, Bangladesh, and the Philippines keep on writing.

Who knows if you will be the next poet laureate for 2009?

THANK YOU.
