RIC S. BASTASA


do not look that far enough


in looking for truth
you do not have to travel that far enough

the seven seas
and their continents
the high heavens
the deepest core

the truth is right there inside your heart
the love you are seeking
the enlightenment is just right there
in the middle of your mind

do not travel that far to look for the person you love
i am just right here

writing a poem for you
am i too near to be seen and to be touched by you?

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
