One More Soundless Day: by Anna Mosca


wishing for one more

soundless day


swimming quietly

at the bottom of

a sea of written words


squealing and chirping

if any outside


the time held

between night


and day between

sleep and awakening



desidero un altro

giorno silenzioso


per nuotare tranquilla

sul fondale di un mare

di parole scritte


stridii e cinguettii

– ve ne fossero – fuori


il tempo sospeso

tra la notte


e il giorno tra

il sonno e la veglia
