  11797.     

the consolation....

when a leaf falls down
lands on the the face of the river
that flows finally to
the arms of the sea
what is really the consolation?

the leaf has kissed
the lips of the water
and those who say that
a kiss is not sweet is
altogether wrong...
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11798.     

The Constancy Of A Noble Purpose

how must i tell you again
it is not the intelligence but the
constancy of purpose
at first and then
you either do not listen when you
heard me clear or
you simply cannot accept it and
change
you believe always on intelligence
and so i watch you risk everything upon it
trying to explain every grain of sand
and there too many of them
and they invade your intelligence and
they bury it
then
finally killing you
suffocating you because the sands in their
constancy of purpose
never believe what intelligence
preaches and
bragged.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11799.     

the constant black bird on a wire in my mind

...of all the things that i see here:
golden fields of Oryza
needle rains, ice cold air,
Y-paths, footsteps on mud,
murky water, leafless trees,
bald mountains, cracked rocks,
abandoned hut, emaciated buffalo,
naked child,

why you? why the importance of you
getting into my head like a leech
and taking what blood i still
have in my veins?

even if you are just a memory
you kick, you push me, you make
me feel the liveliness of pain

black bird on a wire, alone,
ostracized by the flock

or just loving it alone
in the dark?
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11800.     

the consuming anguish

true,
the anguish is always found in the need
that is not always satisfied
the useless anguish
that consumes us
if we do not mind what to really do
and rightly so
in our next moves...
 
RIC S. BASTASA
