Step 5 of 13 Ways Of Looking At A Poem

Standard

5.

on mornings I walk
into the sun rising with each step
I type in words – they crowd around me
at dawn very few people are
around silence is bubbling

Split In Two

Standard

*

I’m split in two

by the desire to
sit and meditate

and travel madly
to new landscapes

travel nonetheless

new either way
yet the excitement

of moving on the territory
yet the serenity

of exploring the nearby

Fermarsi qui

Standard

Sunday poems are dedicated to Italian Poetry

*
fermarsi qui
smettere il tempo i pensieri
le nuvole buie scelgo la bellezza
la novità e le voci lontane

indosso la gratitudine
se non mi strappano questa
posso vivere
ovunque

Resident of Infinite Beauty – I

Standard

*

I hear only my
steps in the twilight
a winter cricket
makes the bunny
run the sky
blushing one
more time
I’m the one
embarrassed
by my residence
in infinite beauty

Ho visto la pioggia

Standard

November Sundays are dedicated to Italian Poetry.

*

ho visto la pioggia

camminare sul mare
bussava senza sosta

incapace di scavare
buchi antichi

come nelle rocce
perché era

accolta
era ben accolta

Rain From The California Notebooks

Standard

*

I’ve seen rain
stepping on the sea
incessantly tapping

not able to carve
ancient holes

as on rocks
because it

was welcomed
it was welcome

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

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

there are times when
a poem you read doesn’t
make any sense where
you suddenly realize how
nice it is to be lost

Winter Rhythm

Standard

*

awe rising with
me in the
early morning

snow covering
the tall mountains
in the desert

three days
of rain almost
continuous

a rare sound
tip tapping
on the skylights

winter holds it’s
own rhythm
lacking patience

to stay longer
