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.

Aprile 2021 – Inedita

Standard

Sundays’ are dedicated to Italian Poetry

*

siamo evanescenti

siamo temporanei

.

siamo sospensione

del fiato divino siamo

la pausa tra le parole

.

siamo il sacro steso

alla luce quotidiana

To The End

Standard

*
we all walk
bundled up on
winter days
but the dogs

jump for joy

the old man
will not sit by
his fire he takes
himself out

slowly stretching
his steps next
to the lines
of poplars

he will walk to
the end not
a thought
of surrender

Attendo

Standard

Sundays are dedicated to Italian Poetry

*
attendo che questa
poesia mi crolli addosso

come una cascata

che porti via un sudore
inutile che riempia
di frescura la mia gola

assetata di armonia

che tessono poco
queste mie mani

.

Asking You

Standard

*

don’t many of us
in this life get the chance
to be human

.
even if for a brief
moment of vulnerability

.
tenderness entwined in
with love and forgiveness
embracing mistakes

.
ours or others
understanding
there are no podiums

.
but one race
just one step
following
the other

.
one person
looking after another

keeping our necks oiled
to turn around

any given time

.

.

Quaderni Californiani

Standard

Some Sundays are dedicated to Italian poetry

*
trovare il modo
di zittire i pensieri
rumorosi ossessivi

figli della paura per
accogliere quelli a forma d’ali
amalgame di leggerezza

piume su muscoli forti
che ci permettano di librarsi
nella bellezza della vita

con il becco spalancato

.

To Keep Me Standing

Standard

*
out of the dark gray morning
the turtle dove calls

same song she plays
on all seasons to call me

out of sleep into the awakened
daily life the tiresome day life

that holds a song or two
such as hers
to keep me standing
.

.

New Church

Standard

*

this is

my new church

the desert plane

.

where the spirit lives

I shall come and

preach to all

.

the desert gold

bushes sitting quietly

preach the deepest

.

silence on which

they already thrive

.

.
