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

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

A River Pouring

Standard

*
a river pouring
you are not rushing

.
to me poetry flows
out is hard to contain

.
I’ve no hands for that use
I’ve new eyes to embrace

.
strong legs clasped around
it’s an odd place wonderful

.
to be tell me what is
new today with you

Autunno

Standard

October Sundays are dedicated to Italian Poetry.

*

esclamare i propri
sentimenti quando
i giorni si confondono

come gli amanti sognati
come i passi contati
fosse una questione

di singolo o plurale
fosse solo la vocale
finale

una sillabazione invece
una ricerca d’accento
sulle giornate meste

The Beauty We Hold

Standard

*

it’s the beauty we hold
and carelessly wear around
what we’ll be missing more

I’ve been that route

bumps holes and crevices
known to me if you’ll let me
stop the nonsense and hold
dear what we have

Risalire

Standard

posso risalire
senza scivolare

con la poesia
non è ansia ma
parola attenta

precisa nel suono
e nello spazio
mi ferma una mano

Truth

Standard

*

if you do respond

to light innuendos
if you do understand
the spaces within

and the white around
if you say a lot with
your silences then

poetry is light and
simplicity – it’s a gentle
laugh at the scoffing

of the learned – it’s
what lifts you up –
not what shows off

Senza tempo

Standard

October Sundays are dedicated to Italian Poetry.

*

essere senza tempo
così mi sento

impazzisco dentro
i legami forti
di accordi non miei

necessari dicono
perché ci si incontri
perché accada qualcosa

vorrei tornare al tutto
compreso dentro me
vorrei avere il nulla

come ricchezza
conoscere davvero
prima del tic e dopo

il tac noi si girava
comunque intorno
al sole noi si parlava

anche con Dio

California Notebooks – Trust

Standard

*
driving in the dark

surrounded by fog

better use trust
the season has come

plowing the clouds

to unveil the land
suspended in

to everlasting

radiance

Perhaps From The California Notebooks 02

Standard

*

perhaps I live eternally
beyond the world’s borders
without realizing

those limits useless talks
and mean chit-chats
laid out as spider webs

perhaps I fly protected

in the blinding light
and at night I cry
cause I did not grasp it

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

Measures from The London Hours

Standard

*

something to do with measures
unknown
to others the length
of my despair whether is
it by nature, mine
or a not understanding of facts

of the jokes
among men, their secret bets
their sudden shoulders

and all was lived
and built, all that had an essence

to dust them off
to cough them up
it’s all forgotten
at once.

I don’t seem
to understand other’s
measures, the sense of
their steps, it’s long
far from me.

Joyful Exile from The London Hours

Standard

*
routine is good
a shelter to my heart

a time of secret
tenderness

went to swim in the morning
new beauty welcomed me

piercing the sound
underwater

large the company
joyful exile

Un volo oltre

Standard

*

nostalgia dei primi
odori americani
.
di teli bianchi perfetti
mossi da un lieve vento
.
noi a ridere nudi
a raccontarci la vita
.
appena iniziata
insieme, non sapevamo quanto

Running Uphill from The London Hours

Standard

*
I will close this page
and put it away

I will have a look
at such light
lingering

I will stand eventually

get up and displace
myself in a busy store
drunk in sounds and souls

I will pick you up
later when this
wind ceases

one more time
running uphill
