Sento

Standard

Sunday’s Poems are dedicated to Italian Poetry

*

quando scrivo sono

guardo mi svuoto

sempre più ricca

 

guardo l’albero

nella nebbia e sono

l’albero e la nebbia

 

non avverto confini

non penso sento

la poesia è essenza

 

d’essere vita

This Whisper

Standard

*

I write hesitantly

as if scared to feel

too much as if afraid

to make noise

.

to intimidate

the graciousness

of this whisper past

my ears past my mind

.

I got there somehow

once more afraid

to be cast away

when I was it

.

Language

Standard

*
things cluttered

I move them around

just a bit as to call them

to make a list of prisoners

.

to make them feel less

lonely as my mind

speaks to them

their language

Time And Places

Standard

*
those are places
geographical ones

pins on paper
tips of pens

thoughts of now
lived before

in a dream
we walked

not crossing
eyes shut

if we look the
weft increases

knowledge of
different places

Islands Do Float

Standard

*

after decades spent
in the seriousness of being
pondering judging achieving

fastening my seat belt
to the land of lightness
where islands do float

as all my thoughts
in enchanted bliss
here silently I’m

quando sono completamente
esausta la poesia si china
a raccogliermi per farmi volare

The Last Summer Sun

Standard

*

I turn my shoulders

to the last summer sun

inconsolable for fall

at the door and winter

following they get into

my bones and stay too

long I try resignation

to no avail on my

mutilated wings
