Nocturnal Snowing - Poem by Fabrizio Frosini

«Let this fluffy snow fall upon our
Dreams and make them shine! »

Set free,
Your breath smoothens unshaken skies;
Your perception scratches unopened realities.

Is it a diversion -maybe- for lost thoughts,
For lost faces and sins?

Looking the other way out of fear or
Embarrassment, waking up next morning,
You should then learn
How to keep alive the drowsing mind,
While trying to shove away
Her plait of hair,
Jammed in the eyes of memory.

Ah.. Those haunting memories!

Was her pain real
When she asserted «That one is my spoiled dress!
My party dress
Which your eyes, filled with lust, tore off of me..»?

Hardly a twist of fate that
Multivalent perception which made
Visionary —Fanciful
Your unnecessary waiting.

Because she didn't come back.
Even at dawn. Even in your expectation.

Now your pain screams only through silence
When you sink your fingers deep
Into your bleeding heart —A sheer grief
With no voice anymore
Because day in day out, year after year
Everything becomes habit.

Until,
Gazing at the fluffy snow falling, you
Caught a glimpse of her —Along with a
Whiff of her perfume..

Peering deeply into your eyes
She spoke words of hope
Along with a promise -possibly-:

« A new life is looming beyond the whitened
Fields of your mind »

Hushed words, uttered under her breath,
Not to scrape the purity of the night.

Was it a prophecy?
The celebration of a triumph or a
Failure —A bloodcurdling nightmare?

Enough! I'm fed up!

I stare at my bloody fingers
And faintly sigh.




(Florence,2014)

Poet's Notes about The Poem

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

The Italian version of my poem is: 'NEVICATA NOTTURNA'

http: //www.poemhunter.com/poem/nevicata-notturna-nocturnal-snowing/

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *


note of the Author:

It is my sort of psychological attitude towards Life itself, plus the role of ‘Memory', that shape my poems..

In this one, ancient memories come back to mind.. at night.. when sleepless but drowsy..

To let the reader better understand it, I report an excerpt from my friend Daniel J.Brick's commentary on 'Nocturnal Snowing':

'[..] your responses to my notes provide an X-ray vision of the poem as you intended it. It's really a poem from the interior life we are always in contact with, that is, if we are willing to descend into the mind and move with its deeper currents, so much more mysterious than the rational mind at the surface.
[…] Now I realize ‘SHE' was from beginning to end a ‘ghost' within the mind..
At the beginning of 'NAJDA', Andre Breton says the question is not ‘Who am I' but ‘Whom do I Haunt? '.
This woman is ‘haunting you', and doing so when you are most susceptible — at night, sleepless but drowsy, the censor of reason turned off and the images of the past flooding in and around your Memory.
[…] If I had followed the lead of the notes I would have been closer to the spirit in which you wrote the poem. But I made an assumption this poem was dramatizing daylight reality and not the nocturnal mystery. If this were an opera, it would be WAGNER, not Verdi.
But what you wrote to me is a fascinating account of how a poetic mind shapes experiences and memories into poetry, into art.
[..] (because) your mind is poetic, it experiences life events in the fluid realm of the imagination, where events of +30 years ago are felt as immediate and the resolutions of yesterday dissolve and are reshaped by desire. And all of this goes on and on UNTIL HUMAN VOICES WAKE US..'. [D.J.Brick]

Thank you heartily, Daniel!
