12 Degrees & Skiving

what began as year-long challenge has become perpetual until further notice

NaPoWriMo • 3 April • Growth / Lo Sviluppo

(Oggi, la poesia e stata in inglese prima e poi (più giù) in italiano)
(Today’s poem is in English first, followed by the Italian version)

the purity of this skygarden
fledgling green, callow
prepubescent
quivers of parsley, basil
a line cast around the surprise
of new life, ritual to spring
knotted and hooked, ardent
pushed into the yolk of the sun

sped up they gyrate
hula hooping
in time to Sol’s arc, out of the soil
into it, understanding
the power in spirals, figure 8s
some still capped by caul
primary leaves pairs of fawn-ears
clasped by their outgrown seed

la purezza di questo giardino nel cielo
verde nascente, imberbe
prepubescente
faretre di prezzemolo, basilico
una linea lanciata intorno alla sorpresa
di una vita novella, rituale di primavera
annodato e agganciato, ardente
pigiato nel tuorlo del sole

accelerati, girano
hula hooping
in tempo di arco del Sol, fuori e dentro
il suolo, stanno comprendendo
la potenza in spirali, le figure d’otto
alcuni ancora ricoperti dall’omento
le foglie primarie come paia di orecchie di un cerbiatto
giunte dal loro seme ormai superato
