  13597.     

There are so many of you here

But only few will be chosen
The rest of them shall survive

They will live another Year of grief Of strife.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  13598.     

there are so many ways of loving

you know that.
you lovely woman, you know what love is.
you know much better than me
for i am a bitter man
the one who loved so well and yet lost
that love and never found it again.

there are so many ways of loving
you know that
and i will not tell you anymore
i have loved you once
and i think that was all enough.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  13599.     

there are some questions

there are some questions
that at first glance
bring you nothing
like an empty basket
with nothing
but wicker spaces
all around it

like: how do you do?
what time is it?

but change these questions
to something
that slaps us
that makes us think about our existence?

like: how do you do with cancer?
what time is it that you will die?

tragic, but the truth runs like nerves
howling for help in your flesh
berserk
but then like anybody moving
it stops to rest
and stares to a world without questions
just plain
stare and acceptances

some manage however to let hope
come inside their mouths
to say:

how do you do mother? what time is it when the next baby comes?
when we will be a family,
a home, when we will face the new born babe
like a fireplace
near the breakfast table
where conversations about baptisms and weddings
flourish like some flowers
starting to bloom
in spring
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  13600.     

there are stories

there are stories and there will be more
coming next is the love story
between a crocodile and a
butterfly

did i not once tell you about the tragedy
of the ceiling and the floor?
oh, until now, they haven't really kissed
despite their pronounced
love for each other
with the walls as their sole witness

i have more stories for you to tell before you
finally leave
for that place called oblivion.

i wish i can rewrite the Arabian Nights
not in thousands but in millions now vis-a-vis this electronic technology
and there you are
listening like grass to the soil with all ears dipped flat on the pebbles
and the sands

i understand i will be your entertainer for the next hundred years
silly! but that is what we are meant to be

an old Spanish church where you are the head priest
beside a convent where someone's got to be a nun exempted from the age
of time.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
