Amore e pianto, vivono accanto

pages and images of existence

thoughts of her life journey,
turning as the pages of a book
thinking of home so far away …

everyday a fresh mask she wears in public
years go by and she does not understand this place,
nor is she accepted without her smiling mask

she reminds herself she is not accidental
she is not less valuable because of her beliefs
fighting to keep her dignity, wondering if she is mad

she lights a candle in her quiet, humble home
candle light flickers across the dark TV screen
empty of thought, just watching the images of her life,
dance across the empty screen …

Nonna’s beautiful face appears,
comforting her in a mere flicker of a moment

“all are our brothers and sisters in this dance
human beings tend to forget this …
our sense of separateness is just an illusion

you are not mad love, you are part of existence,
and existence cares for you”
