....And Why - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

To grow and mature
in solitude

like an only tree
upon a high mountain

to be a part of no cloud
to be not a friend to the wind

to bathe light under the sun
to fold leaves

in the coldness of the night
to stay afoot in its

engulfing darkness
to sing no song

to whisper nothing
to be content on what i am

on where i am
and why.
