just as bunny rabbits
at dusk poems show up
and while you stand
with your mouth open or
an enchanted smile
they rush away

Fermarsi qui

Standard

Sunday posts are dedicated to Italian Poetry

fermarsi qui
smettere il tempo i pensieri
le nuvole buie scelgo la bellezza
la novità e le voci lontane

indosso la gratitudine
se non mi strappano questa
posso vivere
ovunque

ninfea dei boschi
ti sembravo e ti dissi no
avevo i capelli corti
e pantaloncini

nulla sembrava
fluire con il vento se non
gambe e braccia
lunghe e il sorriso biondo

A Petal – California Notebooks

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 toward the earth I who
believes to be above it

within not yet under
I who believe and know no more

I who believes evermore that
I’m and nothing else matters

who loves to live an atom
at a time my own explosion

The Birds Trills

Standard

*

just before
I breathed in I was
breathing out

I run to this
place to be with you
you seem aloof

to life or to give
anything out afraid
even to receive

I play with the birds
trills as people rush
home from work

Ask Me Not

Standard

*

let me dance
as the millipede
with no thinking

ask me not to
quit nor to explain
turn the other side

if jealousy abides
inside as I praise the
sky as the dance floor

Resident of Infinite Beauty – I

Standard

*

I hear only my
steps in the twilight
a winter cricket
makes the bunny
run the sky
blushing one
more time
I’m the one
embarrassed
by my residence
in infinite beauty

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

Life As Seen in 2017

Standard

*

life as a bird

an egg in a nest

in unexpected

 

places hidden

cared for and guarded

with parental

 

love cracking to

the first light revelation

being fed and

 

taught to sing

before I could fly out

into everlasting

.

Dreams From The California Notebooks 02

Standard

*

I cannot be richer than
on summer nights

deep in silence
and beauty
open wide open

window mind soaring
above a few clouds strolling
by the moon

the language of nature
whispering to me the
dreams to come

Eyeing The Sky

Standard

*

it’s part of nature
to wait it took me
a long time to get
it to taste the truth
of such statement

beauty of flowers

starts in the cycle
the seed growing
in darkness eyeing
the sky smiling to
the breeze falling

asleep at night so
many times until
it’s fall come in
time that is a
repeat that

is patience at his best
