  2797.     

a little boy paddling his boat in the river

who had seen the little child paddling a boat
along this old river?
he drifted silently along the river weeds,
picking white lotuses along the way
the water hides his tracks
as duckweed opens him another path.

i was that boy, now, wanting to go back
in that old river.

  2798.     

a little comment about greatness

all she did was
write about a leaf, or a bird perching

one rainy day upon a grain
of wheat,

voila! she is great

just like the way Picasso uses only two lines
to draw a breast of a feeding woman

how foolish can you be!
searching for the golden ant with silver wings

trying to please them
with it

all toil,
suffering yourself like
a Sisyphus,

you are still nothing but a
trying hard, copycat

forget about it,
junk them
discover the great self within you

believe me, Shakespeare was
a slave of his audience
and the king....
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  2799.     

a little difference

there is
a change
a little difference
in the morning
in this town
when the bell
tolls
after the flood
the people
begins
to pray again
a new life
perhaps
or fear
that God may
send
another flood
again
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  2800.     

a little discomfort

there is a little pain
that goes on and on
and on,
a prick at the finger
tip, a pressure on the
toe, something steps
at you,
an idea
a discomfort of your
mind,
you write it
it rebels
the description is
short of what it
really is

and this is always
everyday
at dawn you wake
up
some luminous
letters are dancing
above your
head
glowing like
fireflies
tumbling and
whirling and
staring
at times

you write about it
again
but they melt
like your
dreams

on the floor
there is nothing
left

some dusts you
breathe
from the
dark carpet
 
RIC S. BASTASA
