California Notebooks 2014 EN/IT featuring on IPM today (audio version too)

Standard

*
I had the feeling
I had been lost at sea
just for a few weeks

if weeks count as
years having no sweet
food or drink just

overcoming the waves
withstand the wind patience
unfolded under the sun

one morning – passing by
a mirror – not able to
recognize myself

.

(The audio versions can be found, at the end of the poem, here on the IPM page http://wp.me/phPCu-MX)

.

*
ho avuto la sensazione
d’esser stata naufraga persa
nel mare qualche settimana

se le settimane contano
come anni senza cibo
o acqua dolce solo

le onde da superare
sopportando il vento la pazienza
spiegata sotto il sole

una mattina – passando
davanti a uno specchio –
incapace di riconoscermi

California Notebooks 2014 featuring on IPM today (audio version too)

Standard

*

wishing for one more
soundless day

swimming quietly
at the bottom of
a sea of written words

squealing and chirping
if any outside

the time held
between night

and day between
sleep and awakening

.

.

*
desidero un altro
giorno silenzioso

dove nuoto tranquilla
sul fondo di un mare
di parole scritte

stridii e cinguettii
ve ne fossero fuori

il tempo sospeso
tra la notte

e il giorno tra
il sonno e la veglia

California Notebooks 2014 featuring on IPM today (audio version too)

Standard

*

compare love
to water

in its many manifesting
ways

solid and fluid
misty and evaporating

going up and coming down
never ceasing existing

always present

one form or
another

.

(The audio versions can be found, at the end of the poem, here http://wp.me/phPCu-M6 )

.

*
confronta l’amore
con l’acqua

nelle sue tante
manifestazioni

solido e fluido
nebuloso e etereo

che sale e poi scende
senza mai smettere

d’esistere sempre

presente in una maniera
o nell’altra
.

Poems selected from 2013 featuring on IPM today (audio versions too)

Standard

*

.
accade che si abbassi

.
la vista come un telo lattiginoso
ventiquattro o trentasei ore e vivo

.
d’altro non combatto, sento, annuso
e le ore scandite hanno il loro sapore

.
lento e dolce di chi è cieco di bianco
di chi non sa di chi crede che

.
anche stavolta risalirò il sangue
per guardare di nuovo fuori

.

.
sight lowering

.
it comes as a milky cloth
twenty-four or thirty-six hours and I

.
live of something else I do not fight
I feel I smell and each hour has its taste

.
slow and sweet of who is blinded by white
of who doesn’t know yet believes that

.
this time too I will ride up the blood
to look outside once more

.

California Notebooks , January 2014 (audio version too)

Standard

*

 .

a petal can lead to

an expanse of flowers

.

of poetry and lightness

surprisingly colored

.

to an internal suburban world

projecting me with telescopic

 .

vision towards the earth I who

believe to be above it

 .

within not yet under

I who believe and know no more

.

I who believe ever more that

I am and nothing else matters

 .

who loves to live an atom

at a time my own explosion

.

.
