louisa

(In the following poem, written today for a dear online friend ~ Louisa Zambrotta of WP’s Words and Music and Stories ~ the revolving rainbows resulted from the refractions of her crystal ring in the unaccustomed ray of sunshine made available by a slight loosening of the poet’s curtains, and the heartbeat was provided simultaneously and perfectly by the woofer of a passing vehicle)

louisa

distance is nothing
she murmured
warmly

that i am
taking off
for egypt

that i will
not be writing
online

that i am bringing
the energies of one
place to the other
and those back again

that i am going
into the fondly
waiting embrace
of the most ancient ones

these things
are as nothing
between we two

who need no
online
connection

we’ll think of it
as an opportunity
to practice
the new communication!

and

as she brought
her carefully gathered
precious wisdoms
to my inner ear

tiny rainbows suddenly
revolved around me and
a warm heartbeat
sounded in the distance

    While I was away my dear online friend, poet Ana Daksina, dedicated two wonderful poems to me. Here is the first, which filled my heart with joy and emotion.

    Mentre ero assente la mia cara amica online , la poetessa Ana Daksina, mi ha dedicato due stupende poesia, Ecco la traduzione della prima, che mi ha riempito in cuore di gioia e commozione
    (Nella seguente poesia, scritta oggi per una cara amica online ~ Louisa Zambrotta di WP’s Words and Music and Stories ~ gli arcobaleni rotanti risultavano dalle rifrazioni dell’anello di cristallo nell’inconsueto raggio di sole prodotto da un leggero allentamento delle tende della poetessa e il battito cardiaco era prodotto in modo simultaneo e perfetto dal woofer di un veicolo di passaggio)

    Luisa

    la distanza non è niente
    mormorò
    affettuosamente

    io sto
    partendo
    per l’egitto

    non scriverò
    online

    porto
    le energie di un
    luogo all’altro
    e poi le riporterò indietro

    sto andando
    nell’affettuoso
    abbraccio degli antichi
    che è in attesa

    queste cose
    non sono niente
    tra noi due

    che non abbiamo
    bisogno di connessioni
    online

    lo considereremo
    come l’opportunità
    di praticare
    la nuova comunicazione!

    e

    come lei ha portato
    le sue preziose saggezze
    raccolte con cura
    al mio orecchio interiore

    piccoli arcobaleni all’improvviso
    ruotavano intorno a me e
    un caldo battito del cuore
    suonava in lontananza
