NOSTALGIA

AN old friend of mine is bringing
me to the place where he received the yes of his
wife

it will take us a day of travel, then we walk another
three kilometers until we reach a grassy portion of the hill
overlooking a little town far north

when we arrived there he fell silent
closed his eyes and recited silently his prayers

we only spent twenty minutes there as i gaze
on the grass, the trees and the clouds

now at 54 i think i know what he felt
saying prayers for the dead right in the spot where life was taken away

where love did not die.

It Is A Hug That You Need
When Some Parts Of You Dangle
On Your Shoulder
Like The Way Your Your Hair

Shouts For Help
For Fear Of Falling
And Here I Am Coming
To Hug You

This Kind Of Hug That Sings
The Song Of
Apple Pickers
And

Garbage Collectors
Whose Hands
Are Sworn
To Clean The Mess
And Keep The Pieces

To Put Them All Away
And Burn Them
As Often As Necessary

I Will Hug You Baby
But Only For
A While

I Am Both
This Apple Picker Somewhere
In The North
And A Garbage Collector
Some Place In The South

Let Us Talk About
Love Some Other Time
I Am Still
Learning The Art Of Loving

THE OLDER YOU ARE THE MUTER YOU BECOME

it is true
and let me speak from experience

when you grow old
after you have read so many books

in fact a corridor of books
looking like the catacombs of Allan

you realize that what you know
is too small
from what you have learned

they are nothing but
freckles of your
youth

but this time you do not
raise any eyebrow
for a question

there is that old man who keeps on
saying yes to life

i ask him why and he says
the answers are in the years

but how they talk
is measured in their silence

On A Trip Well Planned
When Most Of The Hours
Are Spent Inside The Car
Where You Dream

About What Lies There
On The Place Of Your Destination
Some Flowers
And Treks On Mountain Trails

And Bridges
And Rivers Where You Look Down Below
Cloud-Filled Skies
And Big Mountains With Enormous
Shadows And Cold Places
At Their Peaks

You Find Rest Somewhere
On A Rock Under A Big Pine Tree
High On This Plateau
Where You Can See
The Green Valley Below

You Think Of Home
Your Bed And Your Room
And The Poetry Books
And Some Love Poems
Of Friends That You
Miss Reading

You Realize You Are Getting Old
And Your Taste For The World Has Gone Cold

Inside Another Long Journey Is Waiting
And You Think It Is More Exciting
 
RIC S. BASTASA
