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

Adding Notes

Standard

*

I didn’t dislike
school most days

yet I was anxious
each day to go home
to have lunch while

reading – to then take a small
break after the meal – under
the sun on the balcony

reading again underlining
my dreams to come
adding notes to my

future days

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

Split In Two

Standard

*

I’m split in two

by the desire to
sit and meditate

and travel madly
to new landscapes

travel nonetheless

new either way
yet the excitement

of moving on the territory
yet the serenity

of exploring the nearby

sono rimasta senza

stretto dentro me
unico appiglio rimasto
mentre ancora corro

Wisdom

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 calm blue deep

within

and forgiveness
may be a life raft

Ceneri

Standard

Sundays are dedicated to Italian Poetry

*

Una riga,
dentro una volta c’eravamo noi.

Ceneri
negli angoli di una stanza buia.
La notte

attendo che mi si racconti l’amore.

On Writing

Standard

*

I load on beauty
between silences
those of plants and
lack of rain

these shivering
when reefers come
are not gossip or loud
news they are stanzas

needing spaces
in between needing
solid whites an invisible
bench to sit on

Le palme

Standard

Sundays are dedicated to Italian poetry

*

le palme alte
frugano il cielo
frusciano nel vento

la notte la piscina
illuminata
non ha onde per

chetarmi l’animo
rovistano il buio
le palme mosse

da brezza di
stelle da moto
di luna

Poetry As A River

Standard

*

a river pouring
you are not rushing

to me poetry flows
out is hard to contain

I’ve no hands for that use
I’ve new eyes to embrace

strong legs clasped around
it’s an odd place wonderful

to be tell me what is
new today with you
