In this theater of absurdity
I do not participate
Elaborate, fanciful the masks of Venice
Made separately with a variety of ornaments
-murano and burano helped in this-
And while we boast with selfishness
the consciousness stooping over the canals
of the attractive city
reflects the face of the earth
Although she prides  to serve the art
feels shame
for the intangible face
And with grace seeks
initiation, shine
A world of hugs
A horizon full of golden sunrises…


I am reconciled withthe words
looking at your eyes
feeling your pulse,
hugging your heart
The sound of our image becomes a song
lyra blessed in our hands,
garden blooming like our dreams…


Life like a nectar
It sinks at your crossroad
I gather it ritually, unsuspecting
I adore everything  belongs to you

Like the poppies that emerge the purple
color on the meadow

As the echo of  Vivaldis opera
and a rock carved endlessly
from the wobble of the sea,
from the flood
of the intellectual pursuits ...
