RIC S. BASTASA


the other side of the coin is rusting


after you have seen it all
you commented
that the other side of the coin
is rusting
while the other side is gleaming
like shiny silver ware

and you ask the question
what do you wish to do about it?

you will say there is still hope
i am saying now as i told you once and i will tell it again

life is what you make it
life is not fair

just do what you think is best
under your own
circumstances

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
