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

Step 4 of 13 Ways Of Looking At A Poem

Standard

at times when I plant
basil such a delicate plant
I’ve to be careful to synchronize
my breath while I gently press
the dirt around as when
words sprout on paper

Step 7 of 13 Ways Of Looking At A Poem

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

Standard

8.

some dreams are infinite it takes
but a few words to evoke those

emotions are a whole sea of waves
useless to separate them to make
some sense just a few words
can take you to sea free the page

among waves and winds
let the reader fly

I’ve tried to explain
how the whites around
the words are so important
to me those silences I caress
on paper breaths spaces
make the poem

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

have you been to that quiet corner
in your house when you shut out
all the superficial chatter where
you are the spirit of poetry

there’s a pace you need
to let your soul reach where
there will be no more war inside
of you nor anger where you bow
kindly and poetry welcomes you

Cloud have covered the whole
day slowing down my rhythm
I walk as barefoot on carpet
placing words carefully
dozing off a bit hanging
poetic moments behind my eyes

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
