Beauty Lingering Unseen

Standard

*

it’s an afterward
moving

this of giving poetry
a way

to talk about the beauty
lingering

unseen
sensitivity shining

bright
in our darker days

when we
think there’s little

to be seen

Being, from the California Notebooks 02 (EN/IT)

Standard

This poem – from the newly finished collection California Notebooks 02 – is dedicated to my dear friend Anna Maria who just stepped into everlasting life after much suffering due to cancer.

*

being there
one day

where the sound
of butterflies wings

could be heard
stretched on a smile

attentive to my
body changes

on the awe of gratitude
cracking away

a bit at a time
to deeper life

esserci
un giorno

dove il suono delle
ali delle farfalle

può essere ascoltato
disteso su un sorriso

vigile ai mutamenti
del mio corpo

stupore della gratitudine
mi incrino un poco

alla volta a vita
più profonda

Desert Trip

Standard

*

November 1st early
morning past sunrise
I’m out in the middle
of the deserted road

I stop to savor the
moment under a sturdy
blue sky half moon
suspended late up there

my eyes running up to
the lengths of the tall
palm trees where only
a bird or two greet me

I’ve got a couple of hours
a couple of water bottles and
some mountains to follow here’s
peace before my Sunday starts

Intertextures – Crossing Rivieras

Standard

*

transparency
is something I
share with fish

I’m suspended
at last a gracious
moment they

stick closer if I
hold in stillnes
even more come

what is there
re generation
wisdom shared

I wish I could
last forever in
salty waters

weightless

Born in a Dream

Standard

*

I wish to be home
in the desert

wide open to nothingness
waiting

for my own shadows
immobile

vulnerable to the wind
filling me

emptiness and whispers of
far away lands

born in a dream I’m gone
as I write

Pregnant Cloud, 2015

Standard

*

I can’t stop
my steps
if every step
charges me up

verses overflowing
I’m the pregnant cloud
ready to pour as I sit
in front of this hot sun

I’ve my own shape
definite contoured
by blue patches
