“I’m busy with something that interrupts death as shadow.” Bruno Lugano

Bisogna ricominciare dall’inizio

Bruno Lugano
 

Bisogna ricominciare dall’inizio.
Dal coraggio
Dal bambino disperato
Dalla famiglia offesa
Dai ripiegamenti di fiorellino
Dalle tribù di tristezze portate con tristezza
Dall’avventura spietata
Dal furto nel giardino incustodito
Dalle solitudini in cui tutti mancano;
E il premio è una lacrima azzurra
privilegiata di fronte al tramonto.
Ricominciare dai giorni rimasti a dondolare nel passato
Dalla pietà che chiedeva sempre più pietà
Dalle sere accaparrate dagli altri
Dal piagnisteo mascherato dalla disperazione
con il cuore ritirato dal gioco dei cuori più audaci,
Con i primi scambi d’amore paralizzati da tristi gelosie.
We must start back at the beginning

Bruno Lugano
 

We must start back at the beginning.
From the courage
From the desperate child
From the offended family
From the retreats of fiorellino
From the clans of sadness carried with sadness
From the merciless adventure
From the pilfering in the unguarded garden
From the loneliness in which everyone is missing;
And the prize is a privileged azure
teardrop when standing before the dusk.
Start again from the days left dangling in the past
From the pity that always called for more pity
From the evenings hoarded by others
From the whimpering disguised by the desperation
with a heart withdrawn from the game of the bravest hearts,
With the first exchanges of love paralysed by sad jealousies.

 I have been a bit absent. I’ve been busy. The blog had become fog, shadows, the niggling thought of something that needed to be addressed again. Ed eccomi con Bruno Lugano. Con grande gioia.

I would like to thank Glenda for putting her trust in me. I will be forever grateful.- M.C.
