Treasure Island

RIC S. BASTASA


destruction and rebirth...


when your universe breaks
in the same manner that other universes do

the most natural thing
that must happen

i, in my own, planetary motion,
watch
the shattering and the bursting
of the great bubble in you

it is not that i want to see
how you destroy yourself

i am not that
sadistic,

the stars know me by heart
and the moon likes me for that

it is this
within you,
after,
shall be
the birth of the
new star

and this happens
all you have to do is just wait

because
as always stars are born
after an explosion

tell you what
it will be the best stage to watch

the nicest thing that happens to you
also happens

to me

and once again the universe
celebrates
and dances and toasts with the lights
of the stars

the meteors sweep sorrows
throwing everything negative away into the
edges of darkness

each now, is happy again,
following each own
planetary orbit
strictly upon its own joyous terms

with Sun as God
with the other planets as angels and
friends.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
