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

The Lonely Trees

Standard

*

wind tending
the lonely trees

too tall to reach
a few visits here

and there are clouds
birds the music

played by the wind
kissed by the sun

caressed by rain they
get more attention

– without moving –
some of us do

An Upside Down World

Standard

*

tonight
the moon is full

emptied from a thousand
engagements I lay in hot
water maybe illuminated

from the sky is the silence
repose approaching
hidden from light

an upside down world
a somersault and a wriggle to

find myself wondering star under
inside some lights I turn off before
the thoughts – then the eyes

slightly vibrating
weightless in the space
I found within

Not Rosaries Nor Missals – Faithfulness Fulfilled – July 2015

Standard

*

decades later I would
get the privilege to enter
a catholic church at night

overseeing the sea on
top of a hill beautifully
decorated dark inside

after hours I felt
honored to be able to
observe and absorb

what really that was all
about to walk by the votive
candles pick up the consumed

ones and replace them
my new unlit ones such
beautiful neatness

to read the album of
prayers just before
the altar and wish

each one to be met
faithfulness fulfilled
people to be elevated

California Notebooks , January 2014 (audio version too)

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 towards the earth I who

believe to be above it

 .

within not yet under

I who believe and know no more

.

I who believe ever more that

I am and nothing else matters

 .

who loves to live an atom

at a time my own explosion

.

.

(translated by Bonnie Mcclellan-Broussard. The original version and the AUDIO versions to both the Italian and English poems can be found at http://wp.me/phPCu-If)
