The Way You Want Things To Be - Poem by RIC BASTASA

you want the sea to have waves
and you say that they are more true that way
or the leaves to have the wind beside it
or the skies to have clouds

how i wish however to have crystal clear seas
leaves so still as though they only have the sun as companion
clear skies
undisturbed blue

do you think that there is something wrong with all these?
i know you will leave me with a blunt answer

but let me tell you
crystals are virtues of the sea before it was disturbed
clear skies have always been peaceful
and leaves have always wanted the solitude without the wind

    you write beautifully
    sometimes, we don't need the wind to disturb the natural peacefullness of our solitude
