Ethereal you are walking on the waters,
sweet little girl,
you who was mother too soon.
I recognize your anxieties
in the tired steps of all mothers,
in the pain of those who lost happiness.
I am a tear of your face,
and I twinkle for an unmindful atavic pain.


It rains on the antique wicker
but nostalgia does not slip away .
A smile in the dark ...
the light of others’ living room.
With a closed umbrella and thirsty eyelids,
I welcome the caresses of the clouds.
Hesitant and watching
in the stray coming I face the seas of memory
and I wait for a face appearing
At the windowsill of God.


In the suburbs of the soul
There’s a tickle of you.
Clouds of daily existence mark the border,
but an echo of wings brings me back to you.
And you are in my verses
my smile in the torpor,
my antidote to pain.


I'm the nothing and I touch you
I'm the whole in the sum
of thoughts and resistances.
I was crumpled in a plate,
a voiceless note in the chorus.
I was afraid of a tiger
marking the territory.
Your distant silhouette,
though desirable as a den,
is shadowed by the boredom
of a life without joy.
