Being from California Notebooks, 2015

Standard

*
some times I miss
being the shore

constantly smoothed
by the froth caressed

by the whispering
waves to find myself

in the soft morning light
cleaned up reordered

from all the creases
of worrisome days

California Notebooks 2014 EN/IT featuring on IPM today (audio version too)

Standard

*
I had the feeling
I had been lost at sea
just for a few weeks

if weeks count as
years having no sweet
food or drink just

overcoming the waves
withstand the wind patience
unfolded under the sun

one morning – passing by
a mirror – not able to
recognize myself

*
ho avuto la sensazione
d’esser stata naufraga persa
nel mare qualche settimana

se le settimane contano
come anni senza cibo
o acqua dolce solo

le onde da superare
sopportando il vento la pazienza
spiegata sotto il sole

una mattina – passando
davanti a uno specchio –
incapace di riconoscermi

Dreams from California Notebooks, 2015

Standard

*
my feet are crossed
in bed casually

as if I were laying
under an apple tree

on a motionless
summer afternoon

with arms bent
and opened up

around my head
wings as I travel

the darkened road
one deep breath

after another
to dreamland

California Notebooks 2014 featuring on IPM today (audio version too)

Standard

*

wishing for one more
soundless day

swimming quietly
at the bottom of
a sea of written words

squealing and chirping
if any outside

the time held
between night

and day between
sleep and awakening

.

*
desidero un altro
giorno silenzioso

dove nuoto tranquilla
sul fondo di un mare
di parole scritte

stridii e cinguettii
ve ne fossero fuori

il tempo sospeso
tra la notte

e il giorno tra
il sonno e la veglia

California Notebooks 2014 featuring on IPM today (audio version too)

Standard

*

compare love
to water

in its many manifesting
ways

solid and fluid
misty and evaporating

going up and coming down
never ceasing existing

always present

one form or
another

.

(The audio versions can be found, at the end of the poem, here http://wp.me/phPCu-M6 )

.

*
confronta l’amore
con l’acqua

nelle sue tante
manifestazioni

solido e fluido
nebuloso e etereo

che sale e poi scende
senza mai smettere

d’esistere sempre

presente in una maniera
o nell’altra
.
