Melancholic blazing day
Loosened knots
Trapped bunny-head balloon
Released in a game
Tempting the fatal
Escapes the wistful child’s hand
Atmosphere of devilish humor
Draws it into oblivion
Cobblestone curbing
Art of Italian grandpa, Nonno
Shoelaces untied
Loose and listless
Grayed from running
from madness running
Seeking
Bliss of the wind
Flight fantasies soar
Birdcall, bicycle squeak whistle
Pattern
Sundays
weekly church hymns
St. Rocco’s bare exposed leg
Rocky stream tales
Trails
Falls
Water
Tears
Down
Solitary
Splendid
Chaos

(Linda Saccoccio, 2010)
