Quante vie non percorse

Quante vie non percorse
quanti sentieri resi sbagli
con la sola testa china
a sradicare la stessa via
quella creduta più giusta.

Quanti nidi svaniti nell’inverno
quanti intrecci rovistati
un’altra primavera
a fingerli diversi
solo per riscoprili più belli.

Quanti torrioni innalzati
quante feritoie ad osservare
con lentissima pazienza
un pellegrino senso
alle porte del passato.

Quanti sguardi a ricamare
quanti bordi consumati
un’altra cura
a ripararli con nuove aurore
pieghe dal saio nascosto di altre pene.

¬ Anna A Sulgreto ¬

How many ways never walked
how many paths made mistakes
with only your head bowed
to uproot the same road
that believed more just.

How many nests vanished in the winter
how many rummaged weaves
another spring
to pretend them different
just to rediscover them more beautiful.

How many towers raised
how many loopholes to observe
with very slow patience
a pilgrim meaning
at past doors.

How many sights embroidering
how many edges worn out
another care
to repair them with new dawns
folds from the hidden habit of other pains.

¬ Anna A Sulgreto ¬
