AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

"The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery."

Warmth.


CHRISTMAS

I don’t have the will
to dive
into a tangle
of streets

I have so much
weariness
on my shoulders

Leave me
like a
thing
placed
in a
corner
and forgotten

Here
one feels nothing
other
than the good warmth

I’ll stay
with the four
somersaults of smoke
from the hearth.

Giuseppe Ungaretti
