  1597.     

a little gift from a Sunday morning

it rained last night
the earth is moist and the garden
is misty

under the old mango tree
lies a soul relaxed upon its free flowing ponder

some birds too perch upon a branch
and merrily sing.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  1598.     

a little humility

boxed in a system
a bee has forgotten to fly

it tries to do it again
but its wings have become sturdy

like the barks of a tree
its feet have forgotten the shape of a rudder

the radar has become strange to
its system

stuffed inside this box
this system the bee has nothing

to be.
just a showcase of what flight could have been.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  1599.     

a little imagination before sleeping to bed

up my bed
last night beside my lampshade
i see a moon with a mouthful of stars giving up all its light for a magical evening inside my room
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  1600.     

a little imagination of where i am heading

as i walk at dawn on the night streets
of your big city, i meet you, too, walking alone
like myself on the narrow alley
in the dark where the lights are not
functioning. Just blinking. On and off.
i see you walking towards me.
you stop a while. i have no fear.
for like you i am accustomed to
walking these same streets
even before you. you stop, as though
you have something to say. But i move
a little step farther. Not stopping.
i see the wind blowing your hair.
it is hinting that we talk a while.
but that cannot be. You are heading
north. i am heading south. You turn
towards the Left and I made my
abrupt turn to the Right.
You regain the strength to walk
a little faster. You dissolve in the
dark, i move on towards an island of
light. I am walking faster too. As though
my loved ones are waiting
back to my home in the
jagged slums.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
