Step 8 of 13 Ways Of Looking At A Poem

Standard

8.

some dreams are infinite it takes
but a few words to evoke those

emotions are a whole sea of waves
useless to separate them to make
some sense just a few words
can take you to sea free the page

among waves and winds
let the reader fly

I’ve tried to explain
how the whites around
the words are so important
to me those silences I caress
on paper breaths spaces
make the poem

have you been to that quiet corner
in your house when you shut out
all the superficial chatter where
you are the spirit of poetry

there’s a pace you need
to let your soul reach where
there will be no more war inside
of you nor anger where you bow
kindly and poetry welcomes you

Cloud have covered the whole
day slowing down my rhythm
I walk as barefoot on carpet
placing words carefully
dozing off a bit hanging
poetic moments behind my eyes

A Petal – California Notebooks

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 toward the earth I who
believes to be above it

within not yet under
I who believe and know no more

I who believes evermore that
I’m and nothing else matters

who loves to live an atom
at a time my own explosion

.

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

Words

Standard

*
may my smile
be forever loving
as I play in life

new roles and adjust
words as a tight dress

may wind clothe me
forever changing
just that loving smile

let that one survive

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

Come margherite

Standard

*

raccolgo le parole
come margherite
in un campo nuovo

attenta a tenerle
in piccoli mazzi
mai così belle

come appena scoperte
un ricordo di meraviglia
arrossiscono si chiudono

sul loro significato
si coprono il cuore
schive della verità

piuttosto prossima
al nostro spirito sordo

che rammenta solo
un paio di note

La mia vita

Standard

Sundays are dedicated to Italian Poetry

*

potessi passare
la mia vita

sotto l’ombra di
un fungo matto

sbrigando serenamente
le mie faccende quotidiane

nutrendo anime mentre
attendo il sussurro

della morte che si
avvicina come il vento

tra le foglie in alto

Quello che mi manca

Standard

Sundays are dedicated to Italian Poetry.

*

quello che mi manca
è il tempo che si muove
lentamente creando un silenzio
immobile dentro

osservo le nuvole
navigare lente e l’erba
crescere alta quando
la pioggia ha finito

camminando in salita
vedo il mare da lontano
trattengo il suo profumo
sulla mia pelle

il mio tempo immersa
nella bellezza il mio tempo
i miei giorni le mie abitudini
non trattengo nulla
