  12797.     

The Apple And The Worm

you meet a woman
she wears a smile

and you pass each other
slowly by

she looks at you
and she seems to tell you

'i know you'

you step back
and gaze at her slender shoulder

''i know her'you tell yourself
silently

you remember her name
but there is no feeling anymore

you look back again
she is gone

but it does not really matter
the past is rotten

(she is the apple and
you were once her worm
and someone so nice
ate her whole)

  12798.     

The Argument

do not ever ask why God should care for you
but ask yourself how you can care for God?

To love someone you cannot love
Is the best love that you can give to God

To care for someone whom everyone has abandoned
Is the utmost care that you can give to God

For God and Man are One.
You are not just Man.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  12799.     

The Arrival

cheat me in all these
endeavors
forget me
tell bad stories
what bad moon is there in my sky
write me all the bad poems
leave me
ignore who i am
do not include me in the list
of your fame and glory
i do not mind
in this world i put a self
and whether it makes a difference
it does not matter
i am into this journey
and i keep moving
nights and days are waves of the seas
the scenes change
all islands come and go
ports are temporary
what we do are left behind
until the ultimate destination
comes before our eyes
and then back to square one
ground zero
and we have only one denominator
for all these

we have arrived
safely and sound.

  12800.     

The Arrival Of The Sparrows

at first glance they look like stones raining
on the fields

my surprise is immense

i am stunned

when i get near
ah, these are the small brown sparrows
from faraway
landing on the
rice-fields of the fields of hay

the village sings again!
 
RIC S. BASTASA
