RIC S. BASTASA


if love is a wild bird


if love is a wild bird,
then i must be a cliff or a rock
far away from the trees,
where the wild bird
builds its nest,
i must be an unknown forest
where the eggs are hidden
where the hatching is done

without even my knowing.

if love is a wild bird
beyond the grasp of my twigs

then i must be the night that hovers
on its wings

and stays also wildly on its dreams

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
