    distant thunder-
    popcorn popping
    in the pan

    stray cat in August the empty city

    Father's Day-
    an unreachable
    phone number

    last night
    of falling stars –
    hysterectomy

  • Angiola Inglese

    X-rays –
    the hidden face
    of the moon

     

  • Antonietta Losito

    winter deepens
    sixth year in a row
    of no income

     

  • Antonietta Losito


    pilgrimage...
    on the way a snake discards
    his outer layer

     

  • Asprea, Pasquale

    leaflets on the wild rose sparrow

     

    do not listen I speak, I speak, winter sunset

     

  • Asprea, Pasquale

    rain at dusk
    from the neighbor's flat
    the sound of a blender

  • Bellini, Marina

     

    clouds gather the solitude of the lightning

  • Bellini, Marina

    dinner's ready
    the call center guy offers
    a worthless fab discount

     

    gala dinner
    the fight between etiquette
    and chopsticks

  • Bellini, Marina

    election results
    the nearby church
    sounds the death knell


    news shared online
    the abuse of
    emoticon hearts

  • Bellini, Marina

    grandma’s silk fan
    her slow-paced
    tales

  • Cardillo, Lucia

    closed umbrella...
    a slice of moon
    on the sidewalk


    ombrello chiuso …
    una fetta di luna
    sul marciapiede



    mist...
    her eyes look without
    seeing me anymore


    cala la nebbia …
    i suoi occhi mi fissano
    senza vedermi



    edge of day... 
    the stars light up
    one by one


    fine del giorno … 
    s’accendono le stelle
    ad una ad una 

     

  • Eufemia Griffo

    snow moon
    every morning
    without your smile

     

  • Eufemia Griffo


    chorus of leaves
    the ancient song
    of the wind

     

    window screen
    a butterfly looking for
    new flowers

     

    deafening silence
    I wonder if crickets
    still sing

  • Giordano, Angela

    olive fields-
    the tents of migrants
    under the snow

      

    cold polar-
    blanket of cardboard
    of the beggar

     

    oriental spices-
    inside the old bazaar
    I find a bit of home

     

    in the suitcase
    the smells of the earth-
    a long journey

  • Griffo, Eufemia

    moon eclipse
    so brief
    the life of a moth


    spring equinox
    the smell of snow
    disappearing


    knotted branches
    the forgotten nest
    of a heron


    cold wind
    the loneliness
    of fallen leaves


  • Inglese, Angiola

    far thunder-
    how long without hearing
    a reproach
