To Swim Today - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

What i love most
is a beautiful morning

when ideas are fresh
like red daisies still wearing the
pearls of dew

when we feel so invigorated
like new bodies coming out from the wombs
of our mothers

i look outside
the trees are taller
leaves swaying to the whispers of the winds

beyond me the sea with white foams on their tongues
white boats sail with fishermen fishing for the food of the day
their wives waiting for what shall be brought inside wicker baskets

some kids are playing on the soccer fields
goats and cows graze at the other side of the plains

more reasons add up to living
and i repeat the same phrase to my sad friend in Minnesota'Don't give up. Life is beautiful! '

i do not wish to end. But i too have to go.
Today, i shall swim and have my date with the blue sea.
