stretching from my feet

On Poetry From The California Notebooks 2016

Standard

*

it seems some days
that the sun moves
at a faster speed

it raises for a kiss
as I get a cup of coffee
and let the cat out

I see them playing
together in the shiny
grass birds may

join too as I give
shape to new poetry
typing away

suddenly it taps
on the backyard for
a sad goodbye

as I sit speechless

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

On Dreams

Standard

I was trying to
dilate a dream

connecting deep
taking time

the early afternoon
was suddenly dark

fingers sinking
into it wrenching

walking the mind
dumbfound rounds

and rounds
sleepwalker

on a pitfall
a dive into

nothingness
an upside down

Crossing Rivieras

Standard

*

wellness downing

with the evening

lightly salty breeze

 

it’s a loud concert

around me waves

crashing every where

 

deep remote thunder

of the sea underneath

brought up by that

 

back and forth moving

crickets and cicadas

fighting for the solo

 

now that the city man

who couldn’t stop

talking has left

 

I’m laying on the cliff

open to the sky

a million pieces of

 

me scattered the last

rays of the day will

gather

Desert Life

Standard

*

from among the metal bars
escape the road runners
from the golf fields

I shall follow the other band
of elderly retired – those
who drive further into

the desert to sit time
at hand to watch the
migratory birds being

stopped by no borders

The Revelation of Presence

Standard

*

I quiver as the sun
comes back out
from behind the trees

I remember being
fifteen drenched in
too many questions

boiling over in the
heat of the sunshine
evaporating upward

leaving

room for silence
to fill each single
gap each crevice

FOCAL POINT by Anna Mosca (EN vrs.)

Standard

Here it is!!!
For you, the English version of a short video of the conference held on May 21st 2016 in Italy on the “Focal Point” of my artistic walk. I was asked to explain to the public – in just 15 minutes – where, why and how Poetry and Photography merge in my personal search.

The conference, held in a beautiful location, the restored, historical, former King’s Waiting Room in the train station of Monza, was part of the Tenth Poetry Summit organized by Poesia Presente. I had a selection of my own photographic work showing in the background that you can view in this slide presentation.

Video starts with whispering so careful not to raise the volume too loud!
Will love to read your feed-backs and fell free to share the link. Enjoy it…

Poetry From The California Notebooks 2016

Standard

*
can we talk
about the transparency
of the soul

its light
weight and odd lack
of shape

artists
maddening over it
one piece

at a time
being revealed yet not
always

Poetry From The California Notebooks

Standard

*

I pick up words
as small daisies
on a spring field

careful to hold them
in small bunches
never as beautiful

as when first spotted
a memory of wonder
blushing as they close

around their meaning
covering the heart
shy of a truth near

enough for our dull spirit

to remember a note
or two

Nights From The California Notebooks, 2016

Standard

*

the magic of wondering
what can fingertips do

lightly flying over things
bringing messages back

as the wind over the valley

 

holding something with
the help of faithful thumb

to be carried closer to
our eyes to be admired

as mountains look at the stars

 

to be moved slowly
one against the other

to rejoice at the silky
dancing of senses

as the sky covers us to sleep

Places From The California Notebooks

Standard

*
dusk

sounds snappy
and sharp but is

a warm soggy
towel on a tired

head in need
of revival

Poetry From The California Notebooks

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

Indian Wells, 2015

Standard

*

from among the metal bars
escape the road runners
away from the golf fields

me wishing to follow the
band of elderly retiree
who drive further into

the desert to sit time
at hand to watch the
migratory birds being

stopped by no borders
unlimited beauty
