RIC S. BASTASA


waves and foams on my feet (revised)


when my feet step on the sands
and pebbles of the shore
i feel the life
stood upon by my whole body
when the waves
come and go like a pendulum on
my legs
leaving some sea caps
and foam on the hair
i begin to understand
who i am,
arriving and yet not staying
going away and yet coming back
in a matter of time
between storms and
clear days, and i agree with
the seagulls singing about life
and fading in a distance

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