  11997.     

THE CHOCOLATE WOMAN

shapely chocolate woman
firm breasts
body curved like a bow
mind like an arrow
tall like a tree
so sweet
when i kiss you
like the sun
that shines warmly
on the hills

you melt
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11998.     

the choice

the choice
of wearing back
the dancing
shoes tonight

leaves me
with your
implied
admission

you have chosen
to live
like a common man

than die
like a miserable
poet

deprived
of the most common
need

the loss of love
the shortness of words
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  11999.     

The Choice Between The Two Huge Mountains

in the deepest
part of the night one gets to know
the deepest
portion of
wisdom

it too is alone
and you begin to admire yourself
because it is
also like you

sufficient in the middle of
this darkness
that engulfs all that have known
and had taken
pride of

light and what is it all about
its honorable deception
with its commensurate consolations

about dreams that do not come true
and those realities that
pretend to hurt us
and yet
can never destroy us

silence is darkness
and darkness which had long been equated
with what is not good
has become
false

what we have been taught is only about
white and black
with nothing in between
their
true colors

shallow and deceptive
between these two huge mountains of
given choices
are myriad
plains and valleys
where i have chosen
to reside.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  12000.     

the choice is within us

out there
the fields are blooming with
red and yellow flowers
the grass greener
the skies so clear
with patches of
white and blue

why just sit there
and focus on the nails of
your feet?

why count the pebbles on
the muddy grounds?

why cry? when what our God
loves is the smile
of the child in us
when we are molded to his
happy face?

why reserve those tears of
sorrows
when we are meant to shout for
joy and
finally give in to those
happy tears
 
RIC S. BASTASA
