The World's Indifference - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

when the river runs out of water
she sings the sweetest songs still at the side of the bank
no one convinces her to give up the hope of
the coming rain

when the sea comes with a storm
when the wind becomes one rebellious form
she sits calmly under the palm and patient with the foam
she knows what price is there in the waiting

she knows the ebbing flow of the tides
the colors of the fading sun
the magical show of darkness and the moon
the stillness of the waters in the marshes
she, like the sleep of the migrating birds
on the lilies,
contains the boldness
of the stork
firm in that resolve to

'nothing lasts forever' she gladly accepts,
offering her smile to the world that has remained
indifferent and cruel.
