  12797.     

the running waters of the river

running water on the river
despite the boulders
it finds itself its way

to where all the waters meet
in that destination
of everything and everyone

running restless souls
towards the same destination

it is not divergence
it is convergence

it is the oneness of all rivers
of all souls

i run and flow
i become everything and everyone at the end

from this flow on this journey
towards everything and everyone

i am gone i am found i am lost i am the drop
becoming a part of the ocean's universe

  12798.     

The Sacrifice

i've seen you
thirst

i feel what
thirst is

you look for
water

or whatever
that satisfies

the dreams of
your lips& tongue

i thirst for
thirst itself

but i do not
look for water

or even if there
is this pool

i still do not
wish to drink anything
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  12799.     

the sad and painful truths.

most truths hurt.

they are not guests.
they stay permanently.
they have needles and threads and fingers.
they sew your lips.
there is blood in your hands.
you cannot complain.

no matter how you shake your brain
to forget
these sad and painful truths stay.
they are bats on the branches of your trees.
aphids on your leaves.

soon these truths kill you.
and then
they all set you free.

gratitude comes at last
before you even say it.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  12800.     

The Sad Bird Who Went Voluntarily Inside The Cage and Sang A Song

i have seen a bird
which went inside a cage
and sings a very sad
song in there
for his dear beloved

it once died there
on a love unrequited.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
