Speaking Before A Gathering In Marriage

i spoke before a
gathering of the
newlywed
whose faces are
as fresh
as the newest morning
in the village
and this i
emphasized that
for a marriage to work
even when the flickers
of love fade
always resort to
the comfort of having
no expectations
at all

that you cannot change
what you are
and so the only thing
to do
is accept what is there
and not to
question
what we are and
how we become.

Speaking The Words Of Loneliness....

i speak the words of loneliness
it flows with the rush of the river
it flies with the wind from the west
it is blown towards you

who live at the foot of the mountain
under the tall trees

this worm waits when will be the next
leaves come
when will be the next bloom of flowers
in the middle of my
drought.
 
RIC S. BASTASA

Spectator

On a Sunday
at nine
he sits by the window
watching
people passing by
bringing their burdens
he is not part
of this
sacrifice
he is the spectator
watching the day pass by

till the next level of
his lazy enlightenment
the sun fades away
and now the moon
he sits by the window
imagining
the night away

it will be the same on
another day of his life
this spectator

Speech To Myself

i do not want to be
responsible about what i write
like the way i write some words
on the sands of the shore
where the waves of the
sea do the erasing to give
me another clean slate again

but it is not as simple as
that, i guess

what i write on some pages
of this space
is read by a lonely creature
who takes everything by heart
in order to live for
another day

and i like the way
how my words may serve
as guide
or inspiration for the
night like some stars
distant but
giving light still

but what if i had written
something too
depressing
and then the reader
puts an end to life

will i still be not responsible?

oh, i must be careful
with what i write

there are lonely people
out there

like boats without anchor
without ports to go
needing the light of the
North star
or the lighthouse somewhere

who knows? we could be
these lonely people

or the lighthouses giving
the light of home.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
