The Last Summer Sun

Standard

*

I turn my shoulders

to the last summer sun

inconsolable for fall

at the door and winter

following they get into

my bones and stay too

long I try resignation

to no avail on my

mutilated wings

Il tempo

Standard

Sunday posts are dedicated to Italian Poetry

*
il tempo lascia
tracce ovunque
le vittime non sono
mai vendicate

il tempo non si può
trattenere può essere
classificato mai
arrestato

e a pensarci
seriamente
non duriamo ma
il tempo di un respiro

il tempo si mostra
e fugge veloce

Verso le nuvole

occhi pensierosi
dorati tremolano
nella notte quando

i profumi veleggiano
verso le nuvole lontani

dallo scricchiolio
sottile dei piedi nudi
sull’erba addormentata

Step 2 of 13 Ways Of Looking At A Poem

Standard

2.

sometimes you are just
walking minding your own
business when something almost
invisible floats in front of you

usually a bit on the side not exactly
in front you need to pay attention
and gently pick the poem
out of the air

just as bunny rabbits
at dusk poems show up
and while you stand
with your mouth open or
an enchanted smile
they rush away

Fermarsi qui

fermarsi qui
smettere il tempo i pensieri
le nuvole buie scelgo la bellezza
la novità e le voci lontane

indosso la gratitudine
se non mi strappano questa
posso vivere
ovunque

at times when I plant
basil such a delicate plant
I’ve to be careful to synchronize
my breath while I gently press
the dirt around as when
words sprout on paper

on mornings I walk
into the sun rising with each step
I type in words – they crowd around me
at dawn very few people are
around silence is bubbling

La somma delle fasi

si dice di questa eclisse

di luna chissà

nei tempi antichi che

non sapevano

quello che sappiamo

noi cosa si sarà

creduto mai di una tal notte

.

si sarà creduto

semplicemente la verità

che in una notte

si compiva l’intero spettacolo

di un mese circa

come un riassunto

per chi fosse stato attento

.

prima e per chi no

some people sit and read
the program but do not pay
attention to the music or the tempo
they do not single out instruments
they need punctuation in poetry
prose in the shape of a column

I fiori e le api

Standard

*
ogni fiore ha la sua
ape che per un tempo lo abbraccia
e lo deruba eppure si dona

serenamente non un fiore
scappa via alcuni cadono
nel canale l’acqua

scorre lenta scorre alta

quella degli irrigatori
dipingono un arcobaleno
nell’aria per me che

ho una vita più breve della loro
