12 Degrees & Skiving

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

NaPoWriMo • 9 April • Le Cosce di Api / The Thighs of Bees

neve che non è venuta
spinge il suo spirito
dentro i mazzi
di margherite, fiori di fagiolo
che fiancheggiano i vicoli,
un applauso floreale
alla meridiana del cielo
legno di ulivo, verbena
ombre smerlate
piantata dalla luna, si dicono
gli occhi delle colline forti, i polmoni sono carichi,
la pelle dell’anima è prurito
con i pollini che chiedono un passaggio
sulle cosce di api
si dissolvono con la stagione, con
il primo sospiro dello Scirocco
che accede in casa
come i suoni e le fusa
dei piccioni amorevoli sul nostro tetto

~ ~ ~

unfallen snow
pushes its spirit
into the spray
of daisies , bean flowers
clocking laneways,
a floral applause
to the dial of the sky
olive wood, verbena
scalloped shadows
plant by the moon, they say
lung-laden strong-eyed hills
the skin of the soul itching
with pollens who hitch a ride
on the thighs of bees
fade with the season’s
first Sirocco sigh
leaking into home, meantime
like the coos and purrs
of the pigeons loving on the roof
