RIC S. BASTASA


your philosophy


you make it candid
nothing of the non-transparent twists and turns
direct to the point
no holds bar nothing to hide
you say what is in your mind
you call a spade a spade a square is a square
not a queer queer queer ideal,

you don't write a poem it is pointless to write any
you live your life
you rhyme
you count every step like a meter
a haiku
a sonnet

you like it crisp and short and
always saying less
to anything

a trek on the mountainside
feeling the ways of the snake
rather than talk and talk
duck quacking

you say, 'plunge! '
live life
do not let it just be written by them

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
