  12797.     

The Fat Man And His Origami

the fat man one day gets fed up with so much noise.
he goes out and faces the traffic
and with his strong determined hands he folds cars into deers
demented streets into stairways
high rise buildings into cliffs and mountains
traffic signs into sunflowers and electric poles into poplar trees
the smog into some breeze from the sea
the crazy world into the hum of an old Chinese village
somewhere in Shanghai he lives there
as Lao Tzu
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  12798.     

The Fate Of The Black Bird

the black bird flies alone against the blue sky
it is lonely and that is the truth that lies in every black feather of its strong wings

if only it can change its course
and find a place where there are other black birds like it

perhaps it will turn back and learn to sing the song of the black flock

it is not a way of life that its father had handed to it upon its beak and claws

it is not even a choice and never did it ever imagine that it shall be alone against the blue skies

against the black nights and against the towering peaks of mountains

there is no other way of rationalizing about it except fate,
it is the destiny that chose its path and it is simply following the dictates of the stars.

The Father Said To Me

Last night at
eight
the Father said
to me:

i do not give a
portion of
my fortune and
treasure
of my kingdom
and power

since you are my
child
i give you whole

and this morning
he said to me:

believe always in
me
and you shall have
no worry.

  12800.     

The Fauns Of Dohinob

this is their game
pied piping with the wind
making songs
sometimes with the flute
under the trees
at night when the moon
comes and shines in full
for their next
trip to the paths of
happiness.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
