When Someone Speaks From His Heart - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

imagine a big dome
it is filled with people
and the sound system is so good
that you can hear a child
over there
sighing.

imagine the world
filled with trees and occupied
with running rivers
and engulfed by the biggest belly
of the ocean
imagine that there is a silly urchin
chased by a star
fish
finally crunched and powdered
and gone
you hear it
when it uttered the last word
before it
was gone.

those are those times
when a man begins to speak from his heart
when the world though big
and too busy
begins to listen

it is the time when you notice
a sea urchin from the bottom of the ocean's belly
when words become
another relevant and important subject matter.
