Eternal Glory


When time will come

no, I do not want unnecessary words,

drumbeats and an ostentatious present

A small corner in the mind and in the heart

The ideal place

In the soul and in the silence of the timeless time

I want to live there

And if there is no space,

does not matter

Let me be somewhere in the void of a random routine

Dot ink printed on the memories of familiar faces

As long as the depth of their thinking allows them,

they will still be able to reflect and share resurrected expectations

There you will be

 worthy and heroic traveler of your short life for your humility

and your greatness


My dear and beloved friend ...





You are the one who comes and goes

or just your idol?

Your shadow?

You are everywhere,

you are hovering

You get lost for a while

Present again

You get flesh and bones

Your volume is thickening

You are reflected in the sad eyes

Pinned on a black background

of expressionless faces

I am not afraid of you


You become locuscommunis *,

 our common and tragic collective fate



That's why I ignore you.

Amphidromia are over **

Your peony no longer sounds

 I happily dance in beautiful white gardens

I experience divine communion

 assembling crumbs of soul ...


*Common place

** the purification ceremony after childbirth in ancient times



The Unseen Day


Your resurrection, my Christ, is an eschatological verification

"Unseen light" of your holiness that shines in the purity and clarity of the soul

 Continuously purifies the believer

embracing and penetrating the net

of the matter, space and time.

It is given only to the chosen people,

 to those who surrender their hearts to your love

my Sweet Lord,

 as they consistently choose and walk "the narrow and crooked road" ...


*Eternal life
