Jones’ Beach, summer afternoon

“We were together. I forget the rest.”
Walt Whitman

The seagulls invented
spirals of light
in the sunny afternoon at Jones’Beach.

Gentle, the Atlantic wind
rippled the pearl water.

We have breathed
the salty tang of the sea
– our eyes lost in the far horizon.

On the intangible sand
sudden dreams of happiness
have touched us
lightly.

(To Adel, Mary and Marsha
Long Island – July 27, 2010)

Jones’ Beach, pomeriggio d’estate

“We were together. I forget the rest.”
Walt Whitman


I gabbiani inventavano
spirali di luce
nel pomeriggio assolato a Jones’ Beach.

Leggero il vento dell’Atlantico
increspava l’acqua di perla.

Abbiamo respirato
il forte profumo di salsedine
lo sguardo perso nell’orizzonte lontano.

Improvvisi – sulla sabbia impalpabile –
ci hanno accarezzato
sogni di felicità.

(To Adel, Mary and Marsha
Long Island – July 27, 2010)
