LIFE AND DEATH / Poem by Maria Miraglia

Poem by Maria Miraglia

 

LIFE AND DEATH

I crossed the time
among mists cold winters
and sun-drenched mornings
observed the bule skies
where stars smiled at each other
from afar
saw flocks of birds arrive
from distan lands
and leave when the leaves
began falling down
admired red sunsets
and pearly sunrises
quickly following each other
and get lost
in the night of the time

new lives have crowded
the streets of the world
like multicoloured flowers
blooming in spring
and many peter their vital energy
like glowing candles
oblivious of their consumptions
in the very act of their burning

how many more the seasons
that will come
of how many of them
will I still admire the colours
and smell the scent
untill the Angel of Death come
and snatch me from life
it’s since long time
his journey began
since my first cry
in the welcoming arms
of my mother

but
will his step be slow
or fast will he ride his black steed
