RIC S. BASTASA


The stone again


That night i humbled
myself,
bowed down to the
image in the mirror
upon a stoic silence
i admit
that i have been a
shadow far away from
my body
i prostrate on the
carpet that you
stepped upon
gave up my own name
and then called
myself the idiot
happy and
much solidified
so real that
i can feel
the stone again
inside my
hands.

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
