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

Love is Reverence

Standard

*

I have worn shoes
covered with trails
dust sticking loud

louder than my long
path of silence I
have asked to see

the way I could tread
barefoot as in a dream
where roads aren’t

hard where people
say without speaking
love is reverence

The Route Of The Skies

Standard

*

I remember well

the route of the skies

I may be on clouds

.

as you said

 .

I may not need

to tread on soiled

divorced paths

 .

the air is thin above

and the view is fine

I wish my wings back

Not Rosaries Nor Missals – Whispering, 2016

Standard

*

I like to think
of my memory
fixed as I age

having a better
recollection of
all it has been

while
never alone
to get broader eyes

looking at the now
and what’s beyond
to see the whole

picture but
all I want indeed
is to have these

beautiful ears
placed as jewels to
decorate me

to hear dogs laughing
and birds singing
to detect clearly

his love whispering
the deep silence

Not Rosaries Nor Missals – Stillness And Dances, 2016

Standard

*

I satisfy myself
in circles of light
stillness and dances

it’s the music
within that slows
us down and we

wonder and return
to these lovely
planes

a step or two
to understanding
the sound

silence broken
by golden lights
we curl up

we are being
picked up

Places From The California Notebooks

Standard

*

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

I’ve been that route

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

Wisdom From The California Notebooks

Standard

*

wisdom can be found
in forgetting

love is stitched on a
white canvas

an array of colors
red for bleeding

is an illusion to the eyes
it’s a calm blue deep

within

and forgiveness
may be like a raft

Being From The California Notebooks 2015

Standard

*

I’ve seen rain
stepping on the sea

incessantly tapping

not able to carve
time worn holes

as on rocks
because it

was welcomed
it was welcome

Places From The California Notebooks 2015

Standard

*
once I used
to live in a jungle
I think

I spent my time
wading off emotions
spiders and mosquitoes

crying

the light was
hardly shining
emotions were
too thick

I needed a machete

cutting off some thoughts
new emotions started
to grow tall and lean
fewer the ivy

now I live

in a green pasture
sunshine on a clear sky
and the occasional
thorn bush

Mornings From The California Notebooks 2015

Standard

*
the tenderness
of that sky
laying his silky

wrap over me
in the morning
opens my eyes

to deep gratitude
glimpses of love
peaking through

as little drops left

after the rain
on the heads
of grass blades

California Notebooks 2014 featuring on IPM today (audio version too)

Standard

*

wishing for one more
soundless day

swimming quietly
at the bottom of
a sea of written words

squealing and chirping
if any outside

the time held
between night

and day between
sleep and awakening

.

(The audio versions can be found, at the end of the poem, here on the IPM page http://wp.me/phPCu-Mc)

*
desidero un altro
giorno silenzioso

dove nuoto tranquilla
sul fondo di un mare
di parole scritte

stridii e cinguettii
ve ne fossero fuori

il tempo sospeso
tra la notte

e il giorno tra
il sonno e la veglia

.

California Notebooks 2014 featuring on IPM today (audio version too)

Standard

*

compare love
to water

in its many manifesting
ways

solid and fluid
misty and evaporating

going up and coming down
never ceasing existing

always present

one form or
another

.

(The audio versions can be found, at the end of the poem, here http://wp.me/phPCu-M6 )

.

*
confronta l’amore
con l’acqua

nelle sue tante
manifestazioni

solido e fluido
nebuloso e etereo

che sale e poi scende
senza mai smettere

d’esistere sempre

presente in una maniera
o nell’altra
.
