Autumn

 

 

Giovanni Dominoni, Carmine Square - Variation 75, Cut faux leather and led lights

Autumn1

 
From petal to petal
This autumn puts together
A series of many thoughts
And comes up with the death of the colors,
Of the shapes, and of the things’ names.
And while, by doing so, it clouds the world,
Life shows up again if you look askew,
In these damp, fallen leaves,
In the drops of the clear dew
That in the morning, evaporating
To the sky, slowly,
In this light that blinds us,
Unexhausted it can rest.
 
 
Giovanni Dominoni

Note:

  1. 1 – Translated by me. Original version:

    Di petalo in petalo
    Quest’autunno inanella
    Pensieri su pensieri,
    S’inventa la morte dei colori,
    Delle forme e dei nomi delle cose.
    Ma in mezzo a questo ottenebrare
    La vita si rivede di traverso
    In questo madido fogliame,
    Nelle gocce della limpida rugiada
    Che al mattino, evaporando
    Verso il cielo, lentamente,
    In questa luce che ci abbaglia
    Inesausta si riposa.
