A River Pouring from California Notebooks

Standard

*
a river pouring
you are not rushing

.
to me poetry flows
out is hard to contain

.
I’ve no hands for that use
I’ve new eyes to embrace

.
strong legs clasped around
it’s an odd place wonderful

.
to be tell me what is
new today with you

.

I Notice

Standard

*
I notice the silence

.

not anymore the chirping
or the chatter of the wind

.

I notice the hummingbird
trying stillness by furious

.

flapping I stop engaging
myself I let go of my eyes

.

frantic grasping of letters
on a page putting the book

.

down where it was letting
my head as beheaded

.

falling too

.

.

Poem from the bilingual book California Notebook available for you also online.

The Right Place

Standard

*

you just know

when you are in

the right place

your soul stretches

out and flies you follow

it somehow with words

and without

This poem is at page 51 of the bilingual poetry book California Notebooks 02

Blossom In Presence

Standard

*

it is so

that every morning

I go about pressing the foot

on the same path that’s how

.

habits are formed good ones

.

I have learned in between

.

steps to make treasure of

observation new revelations

as they come blossom

.

in presence

.

This is the first poem posted in 2021 with my wish to you that you will blossom in presence in all of your beauty.

~ Also, tomorrow is my birthday and I wish to myself the good habit to be present and grateful every day that is given to me.

This poem is part of the poetry collection California Notebooks that can be bought on Amazon with a special discount.

Poetry

Standard

*

poetry is
the description
of a transition

the details

of a voyage
into new unknown
lands laying

beside us all along

Mi adorna

Standard

mi adorna
un sorriso inaspettato

io che attendo poco e vivo
d’ora che esploro sorvolando

non trattengo nulla lascio
che il movimento accada e non ho

indirizzi punte di spilli o di matite
mi trovo felice tra le ultime tre righe

Now

Standard

*

now it’s my turn

to be sitting on

a park bench

alone listening

something is coming

what is is coming

.

This was the only English poem performed on my first poetic reading after the Covid-19 lockdown, last weekend, when asked to do a public reading during the finissage of an art show Called Opulenza Vegetale (Vegetable Opulence). The performance took place in an old site, a church dated 1289, in Italy. If interested in a short video click here, Now.
