Bark tendril
Hollow birch
Birds chirping
light drizzle
Autumn bows to
those faithful

Ascoltare e scrivere (Poem written in t(h)ree languages…English, Italian & French)

“Ascoltare e ripetere” is something I have heard very often twenty five years ago in my three years of Italian language studies. This poem was probably lying in my subconscious because the first words that popped into my minds for this poem was Ascoltare e scrivere which was not far from the classical audio tape’s repetitive phrase… as a result, it’s the first time I’m writing a poem in three languages. I hope the Italian version is correct, it took me some time to polish it 🙂
Let me know!

Fallen leaf
———

Listen & write the
Emotions that makes
The beating of your
Heart the quiver of
Your body as the
Fallen leaf from
The tree sinking
Back to earth in
Perpetual renaissance.

Foglia caduta
————

Ascoltare e scrivere
Le emozioni che rende
Il battito del tuo
Cuore la faretra
Del tuo corpo come
La foglia caduta
Dall’albero naufragio
Di nuovo a terra in
Una rinascita perpetua
————-

Feuille tombée
————-

Ecouter et écrire
Les émotions qui
Produisent le
battement de ton
Coeur le frémissement
De ton corps comme
La feuille tombée
De l’arbre faisant
Naufrage vers la
Terre dans une
Renaissance perpetuelle

“Our” trees, the ones that have taken a place… grown on us (Trees 2)

We sometimes have “our” trees…
That go by the name of ghost-tree
Or the-pregnant-tree, growing on
Us, following our shadows on a
Summer stroll. Some appear so
Dainty, others sturdy yet, all
Overcome long harsh winters…
We have even found one surrounded
Lovingly by baby-roots sprouting
Just everywhere, as an extension
Of their own…

...and "our" pregnant tree :) ©copyright2013owpp
