Winter tree in Spring light
Ready to wake up after Winter
No birds yet hopping on the tree
But how beautiful you are!
Tree unblossomed, whose feather-branches brush
the morning air…to wake the rocky, sleeping
giant, stirring under the blue-pink sky
as the waves lap, and clouds drift
and the birds sing, approaching
a moment of anointening
a memory’s whisper….
Arbol sin florecer, cuyas ramas de plumas
cepillan el aire de la mañana…para despertar a la roca
el gigante dormido, agitandose bajo el cielo azul rosado
mientras las olas vuelven
y las nubes se mueven
y las aves cantant, acercandose
para despertar a la roca, el gigante dormido, agitándose bajo el cielo azul rosado
mientras las olas vuelven, y las nubes se mueven
y las aves cantan, acercándose…
Gary Corseri PV–You reflect the best of us…and you inspire the rest of us….
Pilar Viviente Thanks, you’re very kind. The beauty of life makes more bearable what is inevitable and however tolerant you are, it displeases you.
Gary Corseri You are generous–sharing your talents and your wisdom as you do. About “beauty,” one of my favorite poets, John Keats, wrote: “A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:/ Its loveliness increases, it will never/ Pass into nothingness; but still will keep/ A bower quiet for us, and a sleep/ Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing….”
Pilar Viviente: Gary Corseri, You’re welcome! You too … I love John Keats poetry about “beauty”, perfect to be read while listening my piano
