Mano tesa – Outstretched hand


Mano tesa

Sei lampada accesa
mano tesa
per raggiungere
la perduta meta
Sei sguardo
e sorrido
forse speciale amico
o Angelo custode
Gratitudine
è negli occhi
o nel sorriso
vibrante in cuore

Hand tense

You are lights on
hand tense
to reach
the lost target
You look
and I smile
maybe a special friend
or Guardian Angel
Gratitude
is in the eyes
or in the smile
vibrant in heart

Ballata di sogni


Ballata di sogni

Ballata di sogni
e di aliti del cuore
tra candite ali
che colorano il respiro
Musica arcana
che segna il sorriso
di chi ascolta senza rumore
il filo sottile della vita
che viene incontro
a passi felpati
ad accarezzare
lembi di cielo
nello spazio profondo
che cancella la notte
ed illumina nuova aurora

Ballad of dreams

Ballad of dreams
and breaths of the heart
between candied wings
that color your breath
Music arcane
which marks the smile
of the listener without noise
the slender thread of life
that meets
on tiptoe
to caress
patches of sky
deep space
that erases the night
and illuminates new dawn

Il suono di passi – The sound of footsteps


Il suono di passi

Mostrami
il sorriso
o il pianto
agli occhi
Itineranti
gocce di sogno
mescolano
timidi incanti
Anime tremanti
compiono il viaggio
del coraggio
nella ricerca di senso
Segui il suono di passi
squarciato silenzio
dall’amore manifesto
sotto stelle cadenti

28.10.2017 Poetyca

The sound of footsteps

Show me
the smile
or weeping
to the eyes
itinerant
dream drops
mix
timid enchantments
Shivering souls
make the trip
of courage
in the search for meaning
Follow the sound of footsteps
silenced silence
from manifest love
under falling stars

Oltre le stelle – Beyond the stars

Oltre le stelle

Tu
sorridi
mentre
mi sbirci
nel cuore
a distanza
senza neppure
tante parole
Tu
con meraviglia
sospiri
allungando
le stagioni
in una girandola
di colori di tempo
senza tempo
Tu
alimenti
con un sorriso
questa sottile
connessione
perchè a te
basta solo
un cenno
Voglio
raccontare a te
la vita
intessuta di luce
in questo slancio
oltre le stelle
anche dove tutto
sembra spento

Beyond the Stars

You
smile
while
You peer at me
in the heart
at a distance
without even
many words
You
with wonder
sighs
stretching
seasons
in a swirl
of colors of time
timeless
You
alimony
with a smile
this thin
connection
because of you
just only
motioned
I want
tell yourself
the life
interwoven with light
in the momentum
Beyond the Stars
even where everything
It appears to be off

Ellissi – Ellipses


Ellissi

Si diradano
le mie nebbie
mentre
ritrovo sorriso

Mi sfiorano
i tuoi occhi
-antichi-
vengono da lontano
-stesso mio luogo-
cerchi i miei
p e n s i e r i
che ti accarezzano
scavalcando argini
ora che nel tempo
restano bambini

Ellissi perenni
scivolando
nei luoghi
di memorie distanti
e nel flusso del nulla
tutto si riempie

20.08.2002 Poetyca

Ellipsis

Thin out
my fogs
while
Meeting smile

Touch me
your eyes
-Old
from afar
My same-place-
my rims
t h o u g h t s
you caress
bypassing banks
now and in time
children remain

Ellipses perennial
slipping
places
distant memory
and in the flow of anything
everything is filled

Ricordi – Aforisma – Memories – Aphorism


Ricordi

Piccoli frammenti di colore nel caleidoscopio della vita:
formano immagini bellissime, che ci rendono capaci di trovare
la nostra identità ma possiamo soffiare, vivere i ricordi
con la leggerezza di una lacrima o di un sorriso per poi
cambiare immagine e godere del presente.

16.05.2011 Poetyca

Memories

Small fragments of color in the kaleidoscope of life:
make beautiful images, which enable us to find
but we blow our own identity, living memories
with the lightness of a tear or a smile and then
change image and enjoy the present.

Perdite – Losses


🌸Perdite🌸

Non perdi le persone
perché tu non le hai accompagnate,
spesso sono loro ad escludere,
a scegliere altri itinerari,
soprattutto se credono
che tu non sei disponibile
a stare un passo indietro
ad abbassare sempre la testa.
Chi davvero ci tiene a te
ti accoglie sempre e comunque.

🌸Losses

You don’t lose people
because you did not accompany them,
often they are the ones to exclude,
to choose other itineraries,
especially if they believe
that you are not available
to stay one step behind
to always lower your head.
Who really cares about you
welcomes you always and in any case.

Giorno nuovo – New day


Giorno nuovo

In questo grigio mattino
boccioli di rosa
spargono il loro profumo.

Ringraziando l’Universo
restituiscono vita
ad ogni giorno nuovo.

Con gli occhi catturo
immagine cara
che regala sorriso.

New day

In this gray morning
rosebuds
spread their fragrance.

Thanking the Universe
return life
each new day.

With eye catching
image dear
that gives a smile.

Un angelo – An angel


Un Angelo

Grandi ali
che nel silenzio
attendono
Occhi che cercano
tra sospiri e parole
quel che sei
che cerchi e che vorresti
Ti tende un filo
e ti porta tra i meandri
del tuo cuore
ma guarda il cielo
un arcobaleno
ed un sorriso ti attendono

An Angel

Great wings
that in the silence
waiting
Eyes looking
between words and sighs
what you are
you are looking for and would like
A thread you curtains
and takes you from the depths
of your heart
but look at the sky
a rainbow
and a smile waiting for you

Bruce Cockburn playlist


[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4s2zN9j78LM&list=PLQXCjPp9upb_0J83QGoCj_6Y4dwXJnfiH]

Bruce Cockburn (Ottawa, 27 maggio 1945) è un cantautore canadese.

Il suo stile, con il personalissimo modo di suonare la chitarra, fonde generi come pop, folk, rock, reggae e jazz. Le liriche sono ispirate dalla sua visione umanistica e metafisica della vita vicina all’etica cristiana. 

http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bruce_Cockburn

Bruce Douglas Cockburn OC (/ˈkbərn/; born May 27, 1945)[1] is a Canadian guitarist and singer-songwriter whose career spans over 40 years. His song styles range from folk to jazz-influenced rock and his lyrics cover a broad range of topics that reveal a passion for human rights, politics and spirituality.

In 2014, he released his memoirs, Rumours of Glory: A Memoir.[2]  

Cockburn was born in 1945 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, and spent some of his early years on a farm outside Pembroke, Ontario. He has stated in interviews that his first guitar was one he found around 1959 in his grandmother’s attic, which he adorned with golden stars and used to play along to radio hits.[3] Cockburn attended Nepean High School, where his 1964 yearbook photo states his desire “to become a musician”.[4]He attended Berklee School of Music in Boston for three semesters in the mid-1960s. In 1966 he joined an Ottawa band called The Children, which lasted for about a year. In the spring of 1967 he joined the final lineup of The Esquires. He moved to Toronto that summer to form The Flying Circus with former Bobby Kris & The Imperials members Marty Fisher and Gordon MacBain and ex-Tripp member Neil Lillie. The group recorded some material in late 1967 (which remains unreleased) before changing its name to Olivus in the spring of 1968, by which time Lillie (who changed his name to Neil Merryweather) had been replaced by Dennis Pendrith from Livingstone’s Journey. Olivus opened for The Jimi Hendrix Experience and Cream in April 1968. That summer Cockburn broke up the band with the intention of going solo, but ended up in the band 3’s a Crowd with David Wiffen, Colleen Peterson, and Richard Patterson, who had been a co-member of The Children. Cockburn left 3’s a Crowd in the spring of 1969 to pursue a solo career.

Cockburn’s first solo appearance was at the Mariposa Folk Festival in 1967, and in 1969 he was a headliner. In 1970 he released his self-titled, solo album. Cockburn’s guitar work and songwriting won him an enthusiastic following. His early work featured rural and nautical imagery and Biblical metaphors. Raised as an agnostic, early in his career he became a Christian.[5] Many of his albums from the 1970s refer to Christianity, which in turn informs his concerns for human rights and environmentalism. His references to Christianity include the Grail imagery of 20th-century Christian poet Charles Williams and the ideas of theologian Harvey Cox.[6]

In 1970 Cockburn became partners with Bernie Finkelstein in the music publishing firm Golden Mountain Music.[7]

While Cockburn had been popular in Canada for years, he did not have a big impact in the United States until 1979, with the release of the album Dancing in the Dragon’s Jaws. “Wondering Where the Lions Are“, the first single from that album, reached No. 21 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US in June 1980, and earned Cockburn an appearance on NBC‘s hit TV show Saturday Night Live.

Cockburn was married from 1969 to 1980 and has a daughter from that marriage.[citation needed] He wrote the song “Little Seahorse”, released on In the Falling Dark, in late 1975 about the time when his daughter wasin utero.[citation needed]

Through the 1980s Cockburn’s songwriting became increasingly urban, global and political as he became more involved with progressive causes. His political concerns were first hinted at on the albums: Humans,Inner City Front and The Trouble with Normal. They became more evident in 1984, with his second US radio hit, “If I Had a Rocket Launcher” (No. 88 in the US) from the Stealing Fire album. He had written the song a year earlier, after visiting Guatemalan refugee camps in Mexico that were attacked by Guatemalan military helicopters. His political activism continues to the present. Cockburn has travelled to countries such as Mozambique and Iraq, played benefit concerts, and written songs on a variety of subjects ranging from the International Monetary Fund to land mines. His internationalist bent is reflected in the many world musicinfluences in his music, including reggae and Latin music.

In 1991 Intrepid Records released Kick at the Darkness, a tribute album to Cockburn whose title comes from a phrase in his song “Lovers in a Dangerous Time“. It features the Barenaked Ladies‘ cover of that song, which became their first Top 40 hit and an element in their early success. This lyric was also referenced by U2 in their song “God Part II” from their album Rattle and Hum.

In the early 1990s, Cockburn teamed with T-Bone Burnett for two albums, Nothing but a Burning Light and Dart to the Heart. The latter included a song, “Closer to the Light”, inspired by the death of songwriter Mark Heard, a close friend of Cockburn and Burnett. Cockburn frequently refers to Heard as his favourite songwriter and he was one of many artists who paid tribute to Heard on an album and video titled Strong Hand of Love.

In 1998 Cockburn travelled with filmmaker Robert Lang to Mali, West Africa, where he jammed with Grammy Award-winning blues musician Ali Farka Toure and kora master Toumani Diabate. The month-long journey was documented in the film River of Sand, which won the Regard Canadien award for best documentary at the Vues d’Afrique Film Festival in Montreal. It was also invited for competition at the International Festival of Environmental Films in Paris.[8]

Some of Cockburn’s previously published material had been collected in several albums: Resume, Mummy Dust, and Waiting for a Miracle. His first greatest hits collection was Anything Anytime Anywhere: Singles 1979–2002, released in 2002.

In January 2003 Cockburn finished recording his 21st album, You’ve Never Seen Everything, which features contributions from Emmylou Harris, Jackson Browne, Sam Phillips, Sarah Harmer, Hugh Marsh, Jonell Mosser, Larry Taylor and Steven Hodges. (Taylor and Hodges, formerly of Canned Heat who performed at Monterey and Woodstock in the 1960s, may be known best for their work with Tom Waits).

Cockburn performed a set at the Live 8 concert in Barrie, Ontario, on July 2, 2005. Speechless, an instrumental compilation of new and previously released material, was released on October 24, 2005. His 22nd album, Life Short Call Now, was released on July 18, 2006.

Canadian senator and retired general Roméo Dallaire, who is active in humanitarian fundraising and promoting awareness, appeared on stage at the University of Victoria with Cockburn. The October 4, 2008, concert was held to aid the plight of child soldiers.[9]

In 2009 Cockburn travelled to Afghanistan to visit his brother, Capt. John Cockburn, and to play a concert for Canadian troops. He performed his 1984 song “If I Had a Rocket Launcher” and was temporarily awarded an actual rocket launcher by the military. Cockburn has stated that, while unsure of the original Invasion of Afghanistan, he supported Canada’s role there.[10]

Cockburn released his studio album Small Source of Comfort in 2011. “Lois on the Autobahn”, a cheerful and experiential instrumental recalling “Rouler sa bosse” from Salt, Sun and Time is a tribute to Cockburn’s mother, Lois, who succumbed to cancer in 2010.[citation needed]

Cockburn married his longtime girlfriend M.J. Hannett shortly after the birth of his second daughter, Iona (b. November 2011) in 2011.[11][12] As of 2014, the family lives in the San Francisco area, where Cockburn is writing his memoirs up to 2004.[13]

A documentary film, Bruce Cockburn Pacing the Cage,[14][15] was released in 2013 on television and a brief theatrical showing; directed by Joel Goldberg, gave a rare look into Cockburn’s music, life and politics

Una perla al giorno – Barbara Brown Taylor


rosone7_1024

 

Se sei al buio, non vuol dire che hai fallito
e che hai avuto un terribile passo falso. Per molti anni ho pensato
che le mie domande e il mio dubbio e il mio senso di assenza di Dio,
erano tutti segni della mia mancanza di fede, ma ora so che questo
è il modo in cui la vita dello spirito va.

  Barbara Brown Taylor

If you are in the dark, it does not mean that you have failed
and that you have taken some terrible misstep. For many years I thought my questions
and my doubt and my sense of God’s absence were all signs of my lack of faith,
but now I know this is the way the life of the spirit goes.
