  11997.     

the capacity to change

the chameleon after all is true
it is not just a metaphor
the way we change colors
depending on those
who really touch us
the way we change ourselves
for the better
because we are loved
despite the odds
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11998.     

the case of a waterfall

a waterfall can be seen in different angles
different versions can be said
how a waterfall falls from a very high cliff

the first version is the waterfall itself
the second as you turn clockwise
gives you the version of a fog hanging on a cliff
or a horizon of white clouds
the third version, as you turn another quarter
again on a clockwise direction gives you a water fountain
going up the sky
and the last version on another clockwise
or quarter turn gives you the rage of the river
flowing to the sea

that is how reality appears to our very eyes
some points of view

how life becomes depends on how we see it
coupled with our faith
within ourselves

to one who sees a twisted point of view from a dog's eyes
life appears like a tick sucking blood from the armpit of
a puppy

blood is drained and stored on a bloating stomach
of the tick. Life is actually, how you see it.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11999.     

the cat that could not find a rat

and yes that is the story
about a cat which could
not find a single rat inside
a house filled with hay during
the harshest part of drought

he keeps on telling her that
always, always, w/o regret.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  12000.     

THE CATEGORICAL IMPERATIVE

i could have stayed and
done what i really wanted,

but there is something that i must do
and i didn't like it,

something that we do not like
cannot just be left undone

it is bitter and not too rewarding
but it ought to be done just the same

it is not for me
it is for the rest of the world and the universe
and the galaxies

it does not end when it is finished by the shape of my hands
it leaves me empty

but i am relieved and now i am glad
& so let me begin again from the beginning

i could have stayed and
done what i really wanted,

but there is something that i must do
and now i am thinking that i must like it... it is

The imperative.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
