  13597.     

thinking to be happy

we begin with a basic proposition: i decide to be happy today
then we go to such deductions as: happiness is just a state of mind
so today, you proceed to something personal: i will be happy
i will smile, i will not be interfered by those who are sad and disturbed
i will decide my own mood, i will not be influenced by those who want me
to be sad, and down and depressed and anxious and dissatisfied,

i want to enjoy nature's bounty, appreciate the flowers blooming in the field
in fact, i have to pick some of them and smell and imagine all the beautiful
things around me, the trees, the clouds, the sun, the rivers, and at night
of course, the full moon sailing on the sea, and arrayed with a broom of stars
a shooting star, a distant glowing planet named Venus and try to see
the zodiac and the greeks gods and godesses posted in the heavens

i like to dance and spend my time in ballrooms and bars and drink my favorite beer and talk to my wonderful friends, i like to spend a romantic
night with my lover, and have sex and enjoy the warm body and caress the parts of the human being that i like to feast with my hands and fingers and lips, and i like to sleep after a night of passion, and dream and wake up
on a beautiful morning, and have coffee and breakfast and have the lively
conversation, and i like all the days of my life to be like this: HAPPY

i like to think that i am happy, i decide to be happy, i make my moods

but let me be honest and frank with you, let me ask you this question:

why am i still NOT?

thinking too much

the whole day there is so much thinking
and something that i cannot understand
runs inside my spine
it is like a very thorny vine
a porcupine perhaps
or some kind of a new breed of
an urchin
the whole night they will all be running
over my head
under my hair
the conscience who is not a stranger
shall listen like a child to his mother
the pillow cannot help
on this matter of an indecision

to be
or not to be me
to hate much
and set aside love
to play and
forget the rules
to sleep and wish
death
to wake up
early and then
regret

please slay me with your love
that which this hate
plans to achieve
too quickly
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  13599.     

thinking...

it is it that thinks that we think
works most
too convincing
just as it is elucidating
trying to give all the answers
yet at the end
what happens? dead ends
inevitable,
gates locked and there
are no keys,
the labyrinths are leading
us to nowhere
and then we sit under the tree
unthinking what has been
thought
merely receiving air
engulfing it with all the rooms
of our lungs
breathing and savoring
coolness
and gazing at the spread of grass
the trips of clouds
and then as light dims to make a night
we rest on our beds
less the thoughts
but only the prayers
that all is well
because we have finally get rid
of the belief
in thoughts.

third day of fEB.2010

Wiener Schnitzel in vienna

aunt gomolka
serves a speciality originating from the Italian
'costoletta milanese' -
breadcrumbed
and fried veal escalope,
