Un petalo


Sunday Posts are usually dedicated to Italian Poetry, this Sunday is Bilingual.

I kindly invite you to watch this video, for images, sound effects and voice. I’m posting below the text of the poem featured in the video in English and in Italian. If you view it on YouTube you could also request English captions as it runs.

Enjoy it!

Un petalo – video poesia

a petal can lead
to an expanse of flowers

of poetry and lightness
surprisingly colored

to an internal suburban world
projecting me with telescopic

vision toward the earth I who
believes to be above it

within not yet under
I who believe and know no more

I who believes evermore that
I’m and nothing else matters

who loves to live an atom
at a time my own explosion


un petalo può condurre
a una distesa di fiori

di poesie e pensieri lievi
sorprendentemente colorati

a un mondo interno extraurbano
proiettarmi con un binocolo che

guarda verso la terra io che
credevo di esserne sopra

dentro non ancora sotto
io che credevo e non so più

io che credo sempre più che
sono e non importa null’altro

che amo vivere un atomo
alla volta la mia esplosione

About anna mosca

Artist, poet, photographer, reader, lover, walker, traveler. Feeling in wilderness. Been writing lots of poetry, taking less pictures, teaching a whole lot, traveling less than usual, loving more than allowed, riding public city bikes and not planes, puzzled over paintings. Beside all those forms I am.
