We Take Joy And We Set Aside Sadness - Poem by RIC BASTASA

what we share is time
but greater than time are the memories
that we make and
what we mean are the great times of
our lives
both of us having always a good time
savoring sushi in saisaki
or merely sitting down our faces
facing the wind and the sun
on that beach island

but greater than these
great times
are what? there could be none
but that which takes us back to square one
or ground zero
where is that place
and what time is it
whom are you with

and then we do not remember
but here in this tropical place
we have no time to cry
we take things lightly
we take joy and we set aside sadness

if we cannot remember
they know what we do
and we also know what they do
we just laugh it out...
