The Neglected Pond - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

i may have neglected this pond
some fish are no longer swimming
eventually die in the water
their same burial place
some moss float and the lotus
has not borne any flower since
that day of mourning

someone as i leave may take
notice of this pond
and have pity and pour
everything there
to revive it or
take more perhaps for the

a new koi or
a gold fish
white pebbles and
a janitor fish

it does not matter for i still grieve
and grieving does not know what hope is
what a new house means
the trails to San Antonio
what are they? but same vomiting mud
and i won't take it
for an answer
