  11633.     

Riding On The Wings Of A Butterfly

i walk the dream
where the street
breathes in the shadow
of moon-light,
the lovers night.

oh, sweet love
long time coming
longer time whispering
us free.

i sing your eyes
as willows
stretching into
the ever passing winds

i speak the words of my heart
i sing the songs of my dreams
i see in the water
your image
and it’s true...

as i ride on the wings of the butterfly,
i offer you a rose, if given the chance.

  11634.     

Right, Wrong....

i may tell you
that this is all a matter of
story telling
the one that you invent because the nights
are too long
and slow
and they all drag you to your bed
and the linens
do not make you sleep

meanwhile the ceiling plays with
the lapses of the lizards
as mosquitoes kept being fooled by
light and
shadows of the hands of the the
restless arms

i think i am wrong
most of the times
and i give always the impression that
i master what is
right and
adorable

i give you respect
through the signs of my fingers
and the unspoken words of
my mouth

and i beget respect
like leaves upon leaves of the crowning
glory of the
living tree

i am wrong this time
this is not about the world or
the stars
not even about you but this is all about myself

it is boring
it wearing the eyes that are disinterested
there is this routine
the break is unseen

i guess, i am right this time
when i tell you that
you must go...

  11635.     

Rila Monastery In Bulgaria

potable water
runs there
without ceasing

fresh air
and enticing silence

if only my
soul is free to
get out of
my body

it could have
danced
so well
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11636.     

Ripples

what i do always creates ripples
sometimes we forget about this
when a butterfly's wing is broken
it too creates a ripple in the wind

when a mouse is trapped
the chickens have reasons to be restless
when a dog cannot howl at night
the moon becomes wary about it

when i gaze and throw nothing but silence
you may not believe it but the world trembles
when the world starts to slow down
it soon follows that mosquitoes get frozen

things and people and event are always interconnected
like ripples of the pond like dimples on the cheek of the battered woman
one cannot fathom this
because there is not much pain yet
 
RIC S. BASTASA
