Jones’ Beach, summer afternoon   


“We were together. I forget the rest.”
Walt Whitman

The seagulls invented 
spirals of light 
in the sunny afternoon at Jones’Beach. 

Gentle, the Atlantic wind 
rippled the pearl water. 
We have  breathed 
the salty tang of the sea 
- our eyes lost in  the far horizon. 

On the impalpable sand 
sudden dreams of happiness 
have touched us 
slightly.

(To Adel, Mary and Marsha 
Long Island - July 27, 2010)

COLORS OF SHADOW

 

Lights, shadows
modulate
liquid transparencies
in a slow dance:

ocean blue drops
fallen
on ice shafts
and
precious emerald flowers
lit with fire sparks.

A whirl of colors
that switch on and off
silently
at the end of the day.

                     Lidia Chiarelli

Central Park

(for John Lennon)

 

“ I have heard the sound of summer

in the rain’’

Lawrence Ferlinghetti

 

 

A  blues beat

at Central Park

modulates my thoughts

as I walk

the path to

Strawberry Fields.

 

Far away

- filtered through the light summer rain -

a window of The Dakota

appears

a window that was closed

long ago

in a freezing-cold December evening.

 

Perfect in its geometry

a white and black mosaic circle

holds

one word only:

Imagine

 

my fingers

softly

touch

that message of peace

 

still here

in spite of all.

Empire State Building

Purple, the sunset sky
this summer afternoon
from the Empire State Building.

The dynamic geometry of the city
opens
in front of me
slowly.

I can feel the streets throb with life
- far
almost unreachable -
while
innumerable lights
switch on 
little by little
in the  world theatre.

(July 24, 2010)

Circle Line

“Others will enter the gates of the ferry and cross from shore to shore…
Others will see the shipping of Manhattan north and west…”
Walt Whitman (Leaves of grass)

The boat that takes us to
Ellis Island
slowly slips
through the water of the East River.

The haze of the summer storm
on the buildings of Brooklyn and of Queens
is a thin mist
that muffles the noise 
already weak
on a summer Sunday.

Mirage of a new world
unreal like in a dream
the Statue of Liberty
raises her torch towards a leaden sky.

I, too, America, want to live your dream.
(July 25, 2010)

Manhattan

The skyscrapers soar
into the clouds
that swiftly run
in the indigo and pink sky
this July morning.

Shafts of light
reflect on the crystals of Manhattan.

The city awakes

voices and colours
mix
in the restless carousel of life.
