Imagine Poem by Fabrizio Frosini


Rating: 4.9


Imagine how

Long was the night

And it broke into a day
Loaded with shadows — As deep
As open wounds
Under the rhythmic shifting of the wind

From the tree, forcibly confined
In the garden,
The leaves fell
One by one
Until –naked–
The branches were dull
Grayish-green skeletons.

Imagine how

Even emptier
Would the universe be

If the leaves
If the branches
If that tree

If you

Did not exist.

The universe would be an emptier place without the trees but also human consciousness of all these creations of nature. I recognize the idealist philosophy implied here.

A very fine poem. I especially like the image of the leafless tree and the comparison of the branches to grayish-green skeletons! Congratulations on an excellent work!

Caro sig. Frosini - ho trovato il Suo poeme per caso su internet (che tesoro che e` l'internet, vero?) perche' cercavo degli esempi di poesia italiana riguardo l'amore per i miei studenti di liceo. Che bellezza che c'e` nelle Sue parole! :) Le ringrazio di aver condiviso questo gioiello con il mondo.
