To Keep Me Standing

Standard

*
out of the dark gray morning
the turtle dove calls

same song she plays
on all seasons to call me

out of sleep into the awakened
daily life the tiresome day life

that holds a song or two
such as hers
to keep me standing

New Church

Standard

*

this is

my new church

the desert plane

.

where the spirit lives

I shall come and

preach to all

.

the desert gold

bushes sitting quietly

preach the deepest

.

silence on which

they already thrive

.

Serenità

Unpublished 2021

Standard

*

sun rays

powerless

reflect away

from the frozen

skin of the small pond

.

there no duck is

allowed to swim in days

like these slivers of ice

compacted together

a strange collage

.

reminiscent of abstract art

fish swimming below unseen

.

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.

Beauty Lingering

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

Poetry

poetry is
the description
of a transition

the details

of a voyage
into new unknown
lands laying

beside us all along

On Clouds – California Notebooks 01

Standard

*

I’m not knowledgeable
on climatic changes

the way the winds go
on high or low pressure

I didn’t keep my head on books

but clouds those I know

teaching us
how to be in life

the best ones being
those moving fast

giving no resistance
to life happenings

they follow whatever
wind coming their way

you see them glorying

and soon happily gone

busy dancing
life out

no time to pout – others
grow dark and sit dense

giving headaches

to some of us

they build resistance
to any life changes

no escape
the heaviness

they create
will break on us all

L’evanescenza

Standard

*

la potenza scardinante

della poesia che apre

varchi negli spazi

chiusi dell’anima

.

la curiosità delle forme

.

ricche di sapori

inconsci morti

forse per un tempo

nomade senza dimora

.

fissa l’evanescenza

.
