Il posto giusto – The Right Place

Standard

*

non hai dubbi
quando sei
nel posto giusto

la tua anima si estende
se ne esce volando tu la segui in
qualche modo con le parole

e anche senza

you just know
when you are in
the right place

your soul stretches
out and flies you follow
it somehow with words

and without

Eldorado, at last!

Standard

*

today the winds
in the valley are
high and strong

against the palm
trees fighting them
with a loud fuss

the mountains
fade away behind
a curtain of dust

lifted in the air
in front of them
gold swirling

souvenirs of
the Eldorado

The Lonely Trees

Standard

*

wind tending
the lonely trees

too tall to reach
a few visits here

and there are clouds
birds the music

played by the wind
kissed by the sun

caressed by rain they
get more attention

– without moving –
some of us do

Dreams From The California Notebooks 02

Standard

*

I cannot be richer than
on summer nights

deep in silence
and beauty
open wide open

window mind soaring
above a few clouds strolling
by the moon

the language of nature
whispering to me the
dreams to come

Lighter Than Daylight

Standard

*

let’s not forget
the improvised song

falling from above when
you stop to meditate

wings flapping
nervously sounding

almost metallic
that clear it seems

lighter than
daylight

Beauty Between Silences

Standard

*

I load on beauty
between silences
those of plants and
lack of rain

these shivering
when reefers come
are not gossip or loud
news they are stanzas

needing spaces
in between needing
solid whites an invisible
bench to sit on

Beauty Lingering Unseen

Standard

*

it’s an afterward
moving

this of giving poetry
a way

to talk about the beauty
lingering

unseen
sensitivity shining

bright
in our darker days

when we
think there’s little

to be seen

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

New Landscapes

Standard

*

I left the valley
green and humid
where wind was but

a rare guest for
the coast to be blown
away by crosswinds

sunlight and waves running
around with my wet suit
catching waves long

trips to the unknown
marine depths now I find
myself in the desert away

from things experienced
before synced in with my
passion for the new

landscapes of the spirit
