Liberatore Suffoletta

(July 2,1948 / Pettorano Sul Gizio, L'Aquila, Abruzzi, Italy)

Haikus 2008 (Sunset, Darkness enters, the mirror)


Letting me in
Her bracelet
Jangling

Autumn leaves
loneliness
Inside them

Late August
The leaves plan
yellow deaths

Not touching
Our shadows
Keep talking

The pretty waitress
Pregnant again
Mashes potatoes

The babies smile
Pulls august chill
Into the car

Holding your
Memory still
Seagulls soar

Summer breeze
Her breast sway
Over two lips

Sunset
Darkness enters
The mirror

Baby cries
For red blanket
A robin listens

Once fleeing sandpipers
Turn round quickly
Frightening the ocean

Cool autumn night
Amongst thinning stars
Orion's belt loosens

Silent smiling Buddha
Holding in, belly
Aching laughter

Beyond a star
Stars beyond
stars

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
