Maria Miraglia



The full moon

through the open window

has drawn a white beam of light

in the darkness of my bedroom


that light ray

coming from so far away

like an open eye allows me

to see just some

of the familiar objects

since long there

all the others stay unseen


well as when

I try to perceive

the hidden emotions

in the hearts of the people

around me or

going through the world

or scrutinize

with my inner eye their souls

to understand the reasons

of their certainties and fears

so well concealed

in the hazy caves of their hearts

but just some grains of truth

I can seize

like distant planets

in the cosmic void

the motions of their souls

Great my ambition

to know the unfathomable

slight the chance

to cover long distances
