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

coro di foglie
l’antica canzone
del vento

una farfalla sta cercando
i nuovi fiori

silenzio assordante
mi chiedo se i grilli
cantano ancora

early spring
the empty rooms fill
with birdsong

 

inizio primavera
le stanze vuote si riempiono
col canto degli uccelli

Eufemia Griffo

This is commen by the guest editor.
Here we have the sight of dust on books and another association of lost innocence. The tales we were told as children and the tales we pass on to our own, what do they hold? What relevance to our lives today? A question of burning importance right now, perhaps.
