The Hand


Just remember

the hand

that like a dry leaf caressed your hair

passing through Symplegades.

The hand

where he kept you as a precious talisman

in the handful

and grabbed you like the wind

to set up a dance together on a celebrative Sunday.

The hand

that it stopped the rain at your doorstep

 turned on a light in the tunnel of your life

and together it travelled with you

hoping to cut the thread together.

It' s the hand

that left its soul

and like an open shell was left on the sandy beach

lying on its back looking at the sky

seeking you always.


People ' S Dream


Sand, hour sandglass of my dreams

time thief

my executioner.

Sand, my magic mirror

sesame open

so I can become





It' s not the wind

that hits the ships in the pier.

It' s not the rain

that dives into the thirsty land.

It is not the world ' s cry

in marches without meaning.

Your eyes are

over there among the crowd

marching against my solitude.

It’s love

which majestically builds

the empire of my dreams.
