all fleeting

One More Query

Standard

*

while we artists

on earth spend days

hardly making

a living as we struggle

to find the right

hues the precise color

to define a day

to portray time tell me

my dear where

you now indulge beauty

where time is

no more what color is

the forever

The Look My Soul Has

Standard

*
in between loving cats
and feeding elders
roaming paths

it was the caressing
with my eyes of the olive
trees barks twisted by

the winds and the lack
of water – is that the look
my soul has – she had no

idea life was business
to attend same the church
and the cats and the elderly

A Hint of Poetry for the New Year

Standard

Happy New Year, Happy New Life!

*

I wish no one
to die without a hint
of poetry

a hue of love
compassion or
passion

I wish you
all the urge to cross
over this

threshold
while in your home
a nice skin

seeking a touch
from heaven to come

Finding Rest

Standard

*
to soar up
above all

where stars
wait on the night

to pasture blue
clouds unkempt

where prayers
roam before

finding rest

Once More

Standard

*

I did read six pages
this morning
to make me revolve
once more
in the right direction
it has been
long since I could
poetry came
to give me a hand
to see who
am I once more

.

Feeling sad… The six pages mentioned in this poem I published Tuesday are those of a Mary Oliver book, and today, two days later, she passed away…

A Luminous Day

Standard

*

we are here
softly abandoned

glaring at the shadow of
an airplane on the ground

one of those luminous day
where every detail is out

for count and thanksgiving
following a time dark as

the night upon which we
both struggled with

eyes wide open to
no avail in fear

Verso le nuvole

Standard

Sunday posts are dedicated to Italian Poetry

*
occhi pensierosi
dorati tremolano
nella notte quando

i profumi veleggiano
verso le nuvole lontani

dallo scricchiolio
sottile dei piedi nudi
sull’erba addormentata
