12 - Poem by RIC BASTASA

what appears is what it is
that is how simple it is
and how beautiful can it be

a petal of a flower is nothing
but a petal of a flower
falling to the ground on a
windless day
caused by no other than
this pull of gravity

we watch a world unfolding
we only use words because there is a need to write
what beautiful thing we have seen

but there is more to the simplicity of all these things
those that we have seen and felt and
cannot completely tell you
even in the most simple words of our poetry

the experience of beauty is so personal
like how i experience the poetry of the heart
it is like this, no, it is like this... words fail now
