Ombre a Palermo
© 2014 Giovanni Russo



(Swans - April 21, 2014)  

"vivit sub pectore vulnus"
a wound lives inside the heart

virgil said,
but earth remains the great mother
e la polvere è la prima traccia dell'ombra
and dust is the first track of shadows
and rain's drops are the time.
yes, the past looks at us
to suffer but be forgiven,
"without distinctions."
that weeping flower is resting
for living again
inside hidden words,
inside a dark background
of soul
