“Rising” poem by ZHANG ZHI-Diablo, China. Image and Italian translation by Lidia Chiarelli, Italy

Rising copia

Rialzarsi

di Diablo (Cina)

 

Sei in alto, malvagia, elegante e cupa.

Come un leopardo delle nevi, come luna crescente

La mia strega, la mia Monna Lisa

Nei tuoi occhi malinconici e misteriosi

Sono disposto ad essere gentilmente tagliato dal tuo coltello.

Sono disposto a trasformarmi in un mucchio di cenere

A spingere le verdi colline e i fiumi da solo

Ascoltare il tuo pentimento senza parole

M, starò all’inferno o in paradiso

Per vedere come serri il bordo delle labbra rosse.

 

No, al centro della tempesta del tempo

Io, poeta libero

Nell’istante della caduta, morirò senza luogo di sepoltura.

Se rifiuto di risollevarmi

______________________________

Rising

By Diablo (China)

 

You are aloft, evil, elegance and gloomy

Like a snow leopard, like a crescent moon

My witch, my Mona Lisa

In your melancholy and mysterious eyes

I’m willing to be gracefully cut by your knife

I’m willing to turn into a pile of ash

Pillowing the green hills and rivers alone

Listening to your wordless repent

M, I’ll stand in the hell or heaven

To see how you draw back the cutting edge of your red lips

 

No, in the centre of the storm of time

I, a free poet

In the instant of falling, will die without a burial place

If I refuse to rise

PORTOVENERE

Grey stone walls

resting on equal rock

run towards the sea

to the striped church;

they follow the headland,

and open like eyes in double lancet windows,

in the doors facing the light

that illuminates the long broken cliff…

Daring and steep walls

challenge the secret abyss

and the continuous waves disappear

in the dark caves like mouths on the sea…

The walls rise to the top

to the austere and majestic castle

that dominates the whole village,

resting on the slope;

then they go down boldly

and protect streets, houses, squares,

between small hidden gardens.

Very tall houses face

the narrow marine channel

colored in a single front

and they look at the nearby green island

that under a luxuriant livery

shows a cut of vivid rocks …

And the ravines and impervious paths

barely touch the white cliffs,

always shining in the golden sun

open and exposed to the waves and to the light!

“Me” poem by Shurouk Hammoud , image and Italian translation by Lidia Chiarelli

ME___

Me

I’m just a heart broken woman

Who wants to know why you had left her

And forgot your shadow on her hands

Printing its pale color

On the palms of all those who shake her hands

I am just a woman

Who tries with poetry

To iron the wrinkles of her salty soul

Before returning it back to heaven

___________________

Io

Sono solo una donna spezzata
Chi vuole sapere perché l’hai lasciata
E hai dimenticato la tua ombra sulle sue mani
Che imprimono il colore pallido
Sulle palme di tutti quelli che stringono le sue mani
Sono solo una donna
Che prova con la poesia
Ad attenuare le rughe della sua anima ferita
Prima di restituirla al paradiso
