Then The Fish Story Begins To Be Told - Poem by RIC BASTASA

POETRY is something
that you do
which most of the times
others do not really
share doing, for one thing
for most, it serves no purpose
perhaps, except to baffle

somehow i keep doing it
just like dropping a tiny stone
in that sleepy pond
to make a ripple where ripple
makes more ripples

and then a child begins to
and asks
if there is a fish that swims
in it.

then the fish story begins
to be told
until the child has grown up
to be a man
ready for more ripples
