These darknesses that awaken us
Bring us to a place where we look back
And know we can never return….
While the sky rains voices
Of those who are falling dancing in the
Colors of the lost….
We stand where children sang
Their small footprints
Walking through our hearts….
poem of farewells
December 9 2022
In this dreamless autumn
dark birds unknown to me form
Their ancient pattern toward some summer place
Found this small path and a prayer
Floating in a rain pool
Where the full moon will find it
And they will listen together
To the sorrow….
Psalm for us
On the Lesina plains
the war poems
October 1 20
Even their pain abandoned them….
Knowing their pain was the pain of the world…
They waited for its return…
Their light still tremoring
From the stronghold
