Risveglio

Standard

Sundays are dedicated to Italian Poetry.

*
non mi liscio i capelli
scomposti dal sonno
arruffati i pensieri non
seguo le parole altrui
i miei sogni mi tengono
vacillo tra i passi lenti

Lighter Than Daylight

Standard

*

let’s not forget
the improvised song

falling from above when
you stop to meditate

wings flapping
nervously sounding

almost metallic
that clear it seems

lighter than
daylight

Thirteen Ways Of Looking At a Poem – 7

Standard

7.

some people sit and read
the program but do not pay
attention to the music or the tempo
they do not single out instruments
they need punctuation in poetry
prose in the shape of a column

California Notebooks, 2014

Standard

*
my favorite occupation
has been that of
listening to silence

to give shapes
to music singing
with my hands

on top of the colors
that lay already there
to tiptoe in-love

slowing down
my responses
to evade darkness

into the beauty held
inside as the harmony
viable all around
