Wrinkled hands

Who have worked

all their lives

to feed their children.

Hands that caressed my face

as a child when I was young.

Hands that knew

dry my tears of pain.

Hands that have held mine

in a hug of love.

Hands that now tremble

when they greet me

and express love,

uniting one to the other

as a sign of prayer

and thanksgiving for the life

that our Lord has given us.

Concetta La Placa@ t.d.r.


Your Renunciation Was Exitial


Your renunciation was existential.

It has had negative echoes throughout our lives.

You can't go back.

We must always continue forward, leaving behind us

the poignant ballast of melancholy and useless regret.

Now it's time to reap what we have sown,

everyone in their own existential space.

We need to let go of that invisible thread that keeps the past tied to us, without regretting what was not.

Now is the time to live life only in the here and now, the only precious fleeting moment

Concetta La Placa@ t.d.r.


My Love For You


Every new day, I see the dawn

step by step,

while my heart

beats the rhythm of this love.

I entrust you to her, confused soul, to the first ray of sunshine, to reflect on all the contradictions of this intoxicating feeling

which, every day, is renewed.


Your sky so low I lifted,

hoping to engulf you

in this

disruptive passion,

which like an itinerant cloud skims the infinite.


My love for you, love,

like light at dawn, it expands

on the horizon and blinds me with renewed passion.

Concetta La Placa.@1/2023 t.d.r.
