  11633.     

teach them how to fish

you may give them fish
but for how long will you be giving them fish? for how long will you fish yourself?
teach them how to fish and they will also teach others how to fish.
that is wiser that way.

teach them poetry at first. let them read the easiest one to understand. let them
see the beauty of the simplest lines from you and from the poet that you love.

teach them how to write one from the fingers of their hand. love their work and tell them how beautiful are they. there is always beauty in every personalized line. i know.i am telling you. your lines speak what is in your heart and everything
inside our hearts are always innately beautiful

let them read their lines. let them speak the meaning that they are hiding in there. that which you have never seen yourself. let them defend beauty and grace and truth in their own work. beauty and truth and goodness have to be
defended by its creator too.

listen. open your mind. listen attentively.
teacher. listen to them. they are now making their own.
love each work.

teacher listen. now they are teaching you. now you are learning some more.
they have their own wings now.

teacher, see the sky. see them. oh how beautiful are they. they are all flying
and singing. do not wish them to come back to you. let them fly away.let them see the big wide world. let them find the other universes.

they are not yours. they belong to themselves. they are now free.
that is your happiness that even the gods cannot give you.
sit back. and write another poem for another batch. some more. some time.

  11634.     

teaching our hearts to love the right person

we aim for a brigh future
and sometimes we teach our hearts to love
the right person
at the right time
we want logic
to reign in our hearts
and then
the heart that loves
without reason but only
for the feel of love
suddenly shrinks
like a raisin and
then dies its
natural death

because love cannot
be taught
it is the teacher
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11635.     

teaching you to pray

for you to be closer to
God you must learn to
pray every morning and
there is really no need of
any formula or chants
or creeds or novenas

talk to him like he is
your friend, he likes
friends he has already
more of those servants
and slaves and soldiers
and counsels. Befriend
God, that is prayer enough,
no mumbo, no jumbo
dance the mambo
try the limbo-limbo-rock
with his angels and flock

  11636.     

teachnique in writing poems

she asks how
to make a poem

she is going to
teach the kids
to make poems

i tell her
just let them write
and it is then
that they will know
how to write one
