Light From The California Notebooks 02

Standard

*

approaching the day
with dancing
thoughts

to linger in god’s
presence
light

that stays with me
at night
and in my slumber

California Notebooks – Freedom

Standard

*
I realize we
do not need more
cosmic abstractions

nor painful flights
to the Himalayas tip
for the misty fog

that sometimes
surrounds us in
a cage of boredom

to wane at the sound
of us being liberated
as we simply focus

on what we know
now that we didn’t
know last week

Il posto giusto – The Right Place

Standard

*

non hai dubbi
quando sei
nel posto giusto

la tua anima si estende
se ne esce volando tu la segui in
qualche modo con le parole

e anche senza

you just know
when you are in
the right place

your soul stretches
out and flies you follow
it somehow with words

and without

Eldorado, at last!

Standard

*

today the winds
in the valley are
high and strong

against the palm
trees fighting them
with a loud fuss

the mountains
fade away behind
a curtain of dust

lifted in the air
in front of them
gold swirling

souvenirs of
the Eldorado

Dreams From The California Notebooks 02

Standard

*

I cannot be richer than
on summer nights

deep in silence
and beauty
open wide open

window mind soaring
above a few clouds strolling
by the moon

the language of nature
whispering to me the
dreams to come

Beauty Between Silences

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

Beauty Lingering Unseen

Standard

*

it’s an afterward
moving

this of giving poetry
a way

to talk about the beauty
lingering

unseen
sensitivity shining

bright
in our darker days

when we
think there’s little

to be seen

The Birds Trills

Standard

*

just before
I breathed in I was
breathing out

I run to this
place to be with you
you seem aloof

to life or to give
anything out afraid
even to receive

I play with the birds
trills as people rush
home from work

Eyeing The Sky

Standard

*

it’s part of nature
to wait it took me
a long time to get
it to taste the truth
of such statement

beauty of flowers

starts in the cycle
the seed growing
in darkness eyeing
the sky smiling to
the breeze falling

asleep at night so
many times until
it’s fall come in
time that is a
repeat that

is patience at his best

A Hint Of Poetry

Standard

*

I wish no one
to die without a hint
of poetry

a hue of love
compassion or
passion

I wish you
all the urge to cross
over this

threshold
while in your home
a nice skin

seeking a touch
from heaven to come

Dreams From The California Notebooks

Standard

*

showering
under the full moon
each drop a miniature

globe satellite revolving
my breath slowing
with each step

in the garden
eyelids lowering
under the rays

reflecting

Pregnant Cloud, 2015

Standard

*

I can’t stop
my steps
if every step
charges me up

verses overflowing
I’m the pregnant cloud
ready to pour as I sit
in front of this hot sun

I’ve my own shape
definite contoured
by blue patches
