Face To Face With A Lotus - Poem by RIC BASTASA

fRONTING THE
defunct Presidential Palace
Ho Chi Minh
lies the Lotus
just beside the majestic old
stairs

that time it was blooming
and i waited for the rest who climbed the palace
since i had to confront the
Lotus

It speaks too about my
loneliness
my triumphant survival
towards
another ponderous
solitude
oh my, i do not miss anyone
anymore
i rise above the mud
float on the water
and look to the sky
talk in the silence of
God...
