Joyful Exile from The London Hours

Standard

*
routine is good
a shelter to my heart

a time of secret
tenderness

went to swim in the morning
new beauty welcomed me

piercing the sound
underwater

large the company
joyful exile

Running Uphill from The London Hours

Standard

*
I will close this page
and put it away

I will have a look
at such light
lingering

I will stand eventually

get up and displace
myself in a busy store
drunk in sounds and souls

I will pick you up
later when this
wind ceases

one more time
running uphill

The London Hours

Standard

*

white wellness

welcomed within

.

quietness

a silence seek

.

nearly no movement

a mussel in a shell

.

I hear love

surging

.

if I could

stay forever

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

Il posto giusto – The Right Place

Standard

*

non hai dubbi
quando sei
nel posto giusto

la tua anima si estende
se ne esce volando tu la segui in
qualche modo con le parole

e anche senza

you just know
when you are in
the right place

your soul stretches
out and flies you follow
it somehow with words

and without

Eldorado, at last!

Standard

*

today the winds
in the valley are
high and strong

against the palm
trees fighting them
with a loud fuss

the mountains
fade away behind
a curtain of dust

lifted in the air
in front of them
gold swirling

souvenirs of
the Eldorado

The Lonely Trees

Standard

*

wind tending
the lonely trees

too tall to reach
a few visits here

and there are clouds
birds the music

played by the wind
kissed by the sun

caressed by rain they
get more attention

– without moving –
some of us do

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

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

Beauty Between Silences

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
