Well Defined

Standard

*

I will walk away from
the crowds and their buzz
finding an island to float serene
on way away from cravings
looks and strong odors
to my own shadow
well defined

An Upside Down World

Standard

*

tonight
the moon is full

emptied from a thousand
engagements I lay in hot
water maybe illuminated

from the sky the silence
repose approaching
hidden from light

an upside down world
a somersault and a wriggle to

find myself wondering star under
inside some lights I turn off
before the thoughts – then the eyes

slightly vibrating
weightless in the space
I found within

Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep…

Standard

*

it is right by the side
of the road the Cathedral
In The Pines Cemetery

as if you could just roll
off the side of the road
dead and ready to lay

where there are no fences
but some more noise to
endure or is it a reminder

when the sun hides
at sunset behind red
blood colored clouds

I miei passi – Un volo oltre

Standard

*

se comprendo

che ripercorri

i miei passi

 .

non posso ignorare

il respiro che esce

poco alla volta

 .

trattenuto dopo

un tempo buio

separazioni

 .

boschi attraversati

sulle ginocchia

per vedere meglio

 .

il fondo che non

è mare limpido

cielo capovolto

Running Uphill – The London Hours

Standard

*
I will close this page
and put it away

I will have a look
at such light
lingering

I will stand eventually

get up and displace
myself in a busy store
drunk in sounds and souls

I will pick you up
later when this
wind ceases

one more time
running uphill

Give Shapes To Music

Standard

*
my favorite occupation
has been that of
listening to silence

to give shapes
to music singing
with my hands

on top of the colors
that lay already there
to tiptoe in-love

slowing down
my responses
to evade darkness

into the beauty held
inside as the harmony
viable all around

Poem from California Notebooks 01

.

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

.

How Often We Forget

Standard

*
how often we forget
it is us revolving
around the sun

we sit contemplating
in our living room
the shadows changing

how often we forget
we are mirrors
of others attitudes

we point the finger
pick up a part to act
just impersonating

how often we forget
to simply be a simple
word being thank you

no chats about the sun
moving raising setting
telling ourselves truths

Eyes Wide Open

Standard

*

.
we are here
softly abandoned

.
glaring at the shadow of
an airplane on the ground

.
one of those luminous day
where every detail is out

.
for count and thanksgiving
following a time dark as

.
the night upon which we
both struggled with

.
eyes wide open to
no avail in fear

.

On Writing

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

.

Standard

alcune poesie
vagheggiano d’essere
giardini o meglio ancora laghi

racchiusi e sicuri
ideali per meditare
perfetti per lasciarsi andare

dove persino il silenzio
è circospetto prezioso
accoglie e anche

esclude il tempo
come un palpito
trattenuto

tra le mani

Time

Standard

*

time leaving
traces everywhere
victims never
to be avenged

time cannot
be hold it can
be classified
never arrested

and if doing some
serious thinking
we last but the
length of a breath

time shows itself
and swiftly go

Firecrest

Standard

*

why not marvel

at the thin long beak

of the firecrest

.

or cry tears realizing

such songs

came from a thumb

size chest

.

he fit the mouth

of my cat

so little it was this

bundle of joy

.

covering the sky

among trees

with his wings

soft in my palm now

.
