  12797.     

the left and the right

the left and the right
they learn to co-exist
numbers and words
poetry and prose
mediocrity and seriousness
money and love
passions and reservations
the flowers and the bees
i am making a balance
of the yin and the yang
the crowd and solitude
heaven and hell.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  12798.     

the lemon

there is no alcohol in
my lemon juice
if you are sensitive enough
you could have noticed
that this poem
is sour

there is nothing that
levitates in here

nothing drifts
there is no image of a leaf
floating in air

it is trying to refresh
the heart of summer
trying to recall the flowers
all wilting
along the paths of
dead desires.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  12799.     

the lesbian couple

four years
they have been together
in one house
and they mingle socially
in the neighborhood
without much
ado.

life is an experiment
love is the answer
could be the motto
of the two

i have suspicions sometimes
one has the money and the other doesn't have any.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  12800.     

the lesson learned

i have traveled so far
away

but i dare not ask myself
why

what am i looking for?

i know what i lack
i have mastered so well what i need

i have drawn in my heart
what may satisfy me and make me
silent

i can grab it from you
and from someone
else

but what is the use?

i have traveled so far
communed with the hills
rushed with the rivers
and make ends with
the sea

i have come back to tell you that
i am humbled

by what i have done
the past has told me what i must hear

and so here i am
giving up what i need
saying
i do not need anything

i have volunteered myself
for more sacrifices

and my heart is teaching me
what real wisdom is

it is not getting what i want
it is giving
what i can...
 
RIC S. BASTASA
