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.

A Petal – California Notebooks

Standard

*
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

Radio – California Notebooks

Standard

A tiny taste of the radio interview I did in Milan, Italy, two weeks ago. The first poems is in English.

Un piccolo assaggio video dell’intervista all’Onda di Radio Navigli di Milano del 21-6-18. La seconda poesia è in italiano.

Text below/Testi a fondo pagina

*
I’ve seen rain
stepping on the sea
incessantly tapping

not able to carve
ancient holes

as on rocks
because it

was welcomed
it was welcome

*
ho visto la pioggia

camminare sul mare
bussava senza sosta

incapace di scavare
buchi antichi

come nelle rocce
perchè era

accolta
era ben accolta

Adding Notes

Standard

*

I didn’t dislike
school most days

yet I was anxious
each day to go home
to have lunch while

reading – to then take a small
break after the meal – under
the sun on the balcony

reading again underlining
my dreams to come
adding notes to my

future days

Nata in sogno

Standard

Sunday’s posts are dedicated to Italian Poetry

*

vorrei essere casa
nel deserto

spalancata al nulla
in attesa

vulnerabile al vento che
mi riempie

di nulla
di sospiri di terre lontane

nata in sogno scrivo
e svanisco

The Birds Trills

Standard

*

just before
I breathed in I was
breathing out

I run to this
place to be with you
you seem aloof

to life or to give
anything out afraid
even to receive

I play with the birds
trills as people rush
home from work

Un po’ di poesia

Standard

Sunday’s posts are dedicated to Italian Poetry

*
non voglio
che nessuno muoia senza
un po’ di poesia

un tono
d’amore o compassione
passione

ti auguro
l’urgenza di valicare
questa

soglia
mentre sei nella tua dimora una
bella pelle

desiderando che
arrivi quel tocco dall’alto

Ask Me Not

Standard

*

let me dance
as the millipede
with no thinking

ask me not to
quit nor to explain
turn the other side

if jealousy abides
inside as I praise the
sky as the dance floor

Preludio

non voglio
lasciare mai più
questo silenzio

questa pace che
ieri mi spaventava
preludio di cielo

come lo ricordo

Split In Two

Standard

*

I’m split in two

by the desire to
sit and meditate

and travel madly
to new landscapes

travel nonetheless

new either way
yet the excitement

of moving on the territory
yet the serenity

of exploring the nearby

Intervista TV LIVE

Standard

Sundays are dedicated to Italian Poetry. Today the recording of latest TV interview LIVE on an Italian TV Broadcast. The poems I read in Italian are showing with English text as well, freeze the frame to read it! Enjoy.

Oggi invece di una poesia in italiano abbiamo la registrazione della mia ultimissima intervista TV a SEILATV dove mi hanno chiesto di ritornare. Parliamo di poesia, di viaggi nell’anima come in Giappone, della fotografia di Alta Moda a Tokio e del Messico e di Frida Kahlo. Buona visione!

Stretto dentro me

Standard

Sunday Poems are dedicated to Italian Poetry

*

sono rimasta senza
parole vero per una volta
ho trattenuto il fiato

stretto dentro me
unico appiglio rimasto
mentre ancora corro
