12 Degrees & Skiving

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

NaPoWriMo • 17 April • Santa Fiora III

the very first stone
chosen hewn laid
unseen felt
by the mountain
whelped into the geometry
that is the town

i need to run
lungful sing it into me
follow every
stair laneway trail
till my ley lines
are its map

~ ~ ~

la prima pietra
scavata, scelta, appoggiata
percepita, all’impronta
dalla montagna
partorito nella geometria
che è la città

ho bisogno di correre
boccata, cantarla dentro a me
seguire ogni
percorso, scala, vicoletto
finché i miei ley line
sono la sua mappa

    Ali, have you read Markus Zusak’s, The Book Thief? At times he places words together in the way you have the gift. Not all the time of course-it’s a story. Will try to find a couple of lines………………….xx

      No, I haven’t read it yet – but I’m intrigued now 😉 Thank you for your very kind words. Not sure it’s very ‘giftish’ at the moment…time to write has been very short indeed these last few days. Catching up now xx
