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

Step 5 of 13 Ways Of Looking At A Poem

Standard

5.

on mornings I walk
into the sun rising with each step
I type in words – they crowd around me
at dawn very few people are
around silence is bubbling

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

The Next Silence

Standard

*

I gather my thoughts
bending a little
away from the wind

that clears skies
from darkness of clouds
the air is gold

colored tiny speckles
dancing away a tip
a tap one tip more

fingers tapping with
closed eyes
a dance suspended

draw me closer
to your rhythm before
the next silence

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

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

before the curtains rise fretful
yet filled with anticipation are
these morning poems coming
to me out of silence – eager

The Revelation of Presence

Standard

*

I quiver as the sun
comes back out
from behind the trees

I remember being
fifteen drenched in
too many questions

boiling over in the
heat of the sunshine
evaporating upward

leaving

room for silence
to fill each single
gap each crevice

PUNTO FOCALE di Anna Mosca (ITA vrs.)

Standard

Here is a short video of a conference held a couple of weeks ago in Italy on the Focal Point of my artistic path. Where poetry and photography meet. By next week-end I will have the English version ready. Meanwhile, I’ll say, enjoy my photographic presentation.

Ecco il breve video di una conferenza tenuta il 21 Maggio, a Monza per Poesia Presente, niente meno che alla saletta Reale della stazione! Mi è stato chiesto di presentare il punto focale della mia ricerca artistica, dove e perchè la poesia si incontra con la fotografia. In poco più di un quarto d’ora vi racconto il percorso di una vita e spero che sia il mio lavoro fotografico che quello poetico vi muovano dentro e vi aiutino a capire il mio cammino. Attendo i vostri riscontri. Buona visione e buon ascolto…

Il video comincia con un sussurro di note, non alzate il volume.
