Fear Lives

Standard

*

fear lives in us

the more we push it

out the more

it sinks its roots in the dark

.

to be able

to recognize it when

we look from its eyes

terrified

.

at life well aware

we don’t understand

what influences us is what

halts my words now

.

What It Takes

Standard

*

the garden repeats

itself with no shame

day after day

year after year

it is the ritual of life

honest repetitions

with no aim to gain

simply to be

I learn each day

from these visits

each step I take

wisdom sheds

entering me

imperceptible

it takes a needy

heart to see

this incredible

life experience

Let’s Not Forget

the improvised song

falling from above when
you stop to meditate

lighter than
daylight

Ask Me Not

Standard

let me dance
as the millipede
with no thinking

ask me not to
quit nor to explain
turn the other side

if jealousy abides
inside as I praise the
sky as the dance floor

Keep On Walking

Standard

*
our venturesome
walks are the cause
me I can’t stay
put too long

.

walking life barefoot
doesn’t scare me

.

it was probably
because grandpa

.

explained everything
to me then – I got it

.

the habit of asking why
exacting answers

.

even when
the questions
are larger than I
I keep on walking

.

November 1st

Standard

*

November 1st early
morning past sunrise
I’m out in the middle
of the deserted road

.

I stop to savor the
moment under a sturdy
blue sky half moon
suspended late up there

.

my eyes running up to
the lengths of the tall
palm trees where only
a bird or two greet me

.

I’ve got a couple of hours
a couple of water bottles and
some mountains to follow here’s
peace before my Sunday starts

.

From the poetry collection California Notebooks 02 now on sale.

Pensive Hazel Eyes

Standard

*

pensive hazel eyes
flickering around
the night where

.

perfumes sail to
the clouds away

.

from the cracking
tiny sound of bare foot
on sleepy grass

.

Standard

esserci
un giorno

dove il suono delle
ali delle farfalle

può essere ascoltato
disteso su un sorriso

vigile ai mutamenti
del mio corpo

stupore della gratitudine
mi incrino un poco

alla volta a vita
più profonda

of anything new
