3 poems by Anna Ferriero

Spring breath
between sunsets by the heart
a new verse blossoms
between the waves of my gaze.
Scent of whiteness
I collect at the Horizon
and dew of love
from the ink by the sea
plays beauty looks
that gather elegance
lappings of great hope.
Petals of Love
they dissolve terror
disserting new Life:
Infinite rebirth


Sky blue
like hibiscus
as he wakes up
like a kind child
the last hibernation:
sunset scent
sprouted in summer.
like the last snow
preserved among the corals
that release spring
waking up
without deception among the memories
hope of infinity
where everything
of blue it quenches its thirst


It's an enchanted place
between a fairy cloak
by creatures esteemed
and much appreciated!
It is a meadow in a desert
such a merry stream
that long-awaited heart
between flowers and lots of love
the Life that never dies!
