  3197.     

an early morning oat meal

an early morning oat meal
is like poetry

it warms the heart
fills an empty stomach
makes you
move smoothly
for another day

like a survivor of
another day's shipwreck
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  3198.     

an early morning song

an early morning twyla
for delilah
eyes waking up like fila
all for delilah
a beautiful phyla
all for delilah

and so i tag the line
that delilah is doing fine
based upon samson's decline

An Early Morning Walk

i had a walk this morning
and i saw twilight

fog hovering still on the feet of the mountains
there is beauty in haze
in the opaqueness of smog

i inhale cold air inside my lungs
and walk faster

there is dew on the grass
as fingers of light comes out from the hazy fog

herons arrive and land on the green fields
catching the frogs

the brown cow is munching grass inside its mouth
still lying comfortably on the ground

the macopa tree shed its leaves
in favor of new shiny ones

the trail is clear
no one has arrived here yet

it is about to rain with all the gray clouds lumping in the sky
ah, i am not running for shelter.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
   
 

   
   
 

  3200.     

an early morning wish

it is too early
i guess the nights are longer now
it is 4: 56 a.m. it is cold
the air is cold
and the windows are still closed
the rooster at the yard
keeps on crowing
while other roosters of the neighborhood
(i live in a rural town
with dusty roads still at the other
nearby kiosk)
keep on crowing too for an answer,
how i wish to make you
a lovely,
happy,
gentle,
peaceful poem
no one screaming on the road
not a motorcab screeching
neither a bus overspeeding
and spreading dust
how i wish to write you a poem
about love
or about that only peaceful star
hanging on the
early morning sky
just a wish
but really
there isn't any
it cannot be
what with a heart that is grieving
a soul that is lost
a body that trembles
a mind with thoughts live leaves
heap upon heap
without a match
to burn them all
this hot days of summer.
 
RIC S. BASTASA
