In Sickness – Three Steps

Standard

*

1.

winter came early

this year to me

and to so many

others counting

the dead ones

holding tight

to a thin opening

of breath whistling

almost in an out my

house old all of a sudden

2.

I do repeat I love you

to my self five times

at day more really

because it helps

my lungs relax

I feel larger

than life

simply

saying

to myself

I do love you

hold on tightly

3.

all shall pass one day

not today maybe

please not

today

I Dare To Hope April Is The Cruelest

Standard

*

I knew the hardest

was not being locked in

but the coming out

the count of the missing

ones their blinders

down as you take your

long missed stroll
.

that time has not arrived yet
.

but the count has

started once you get time

at hand the socials

platforms open up some

profiles have black

some tears and weeping

so far is two at day
.

way too high the number

of my friends who are no more

we are still on lock down
.

April is the cruelest month

I dare to strongly hope

Stretto dentro me

sono rimasta senza
parole vero per una volta
ho trattenuto il fiato

stretto dentro me
unico appiglio rimasto
mentre ancora corro

Intervista Live TV

Standard

Una sorpresa per questa domenica pre-pasquale (sembro un pulcino appena uscito dall’uovo), il segmento della mia intervista in diretta a Seilatv – Pomeriggio216. Racconto dei miei viaggi nella California del Sud dove ho “raccolto” i miei due volumi poetici bilingue California Notebooks

A early Easter surprise (yes, I look like a chick that just cracked off the egg in this interview, LOL) a live interview for an Italian TV where I tell about my trips to California where I “gathered” poetic inspiration and where I wrote the two volumes of the California Notebooks

brucia il petto
quando piango
per i singhiozzi
trattenuti nella
neve cammino
lenta come si
posano i passi
sul terreno umido

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

Italian Summers

Standard

*

mid day of August’s
mid month some echoes
of a church service

on a television where
there are very few visions
a small breeze rises

awakening me to
a tiny drip drop
a small precipitation

into myself until
an airplane breaks
the clouds in two

.

The Italian Season

Standard

*

there was a time
and a place where

I would see spring
coming on black
trees bare in the snow

the people wearing dark
coats un-cladding into colors
as leafs starting to show

smiles on stressed faces
a ray at a time slowly
breaking through

a cloudy sky
