There is a woman,
With heaven underneath her feet.
When I take a glimpse of her eyes,
I forget about the stars.
For the twinkle of her eyes is better than that of stars.
When I gaze at her lips,
I forget about the crimson of roses.
For her lips are far rosier.
When I hear her laugh,
I forget about the nightingale.
For her voice is far too merry.
But do you know who this woman is?
She is Mama the Marvellous.
Connecting starlight over rooftops,
Pleading to save my soul.
I look to the night sky to make me feel whole.
Perhaps it's the beauty
Or is it its presence?
When all else fails to be,
It is.
Leonardo Tonini Sep 2020
Sterne sonder Zahl aus der Nacht aller Zeiten
in einem klaren Ozean bewegt ihr euch
wenn ich euch mit menschlichem Zeitempfinden betrachte
seid ihr im Rhythmus der Jahreszeiten ewig
doch wenn ich in längeren zeitlichen Dimensionen an euch
denke so weiss ich euch sterblich.
Die entfernte Stadt löscht ihre Lichter
in der dichten Nacht erscheint ihr mal zögernd,
mal überzeugt über den Bergen wohlgesinnt.
In eurer Herrlichkeit findet mein Herz seine Ruh.


Stelle, innumeri dalla notte dei tempi
in un liquido oceano vi muovete
se con il mio tempo umano vi guardo
al ritmo delle stagioni eterne siete
ma se con altri e più lunghi tempi a voi
penso come cose mortali vi so.
Spegne la città lontana le sue luci
nella densa notte incerte qui e là sicure
sopra i monti benevole apparite.
Nella vostra gloria riposa l’animo mio.
A poem of mine translated into German by Cornelia Masciadri and currently being published in Switzerland. I am looking for an English translator. I can translate into Italian and look for a space in a magazine in Italy for those interested.

.At 2 Am,
Under the starry night
We danced to the beats of our cosmic hearts
while our love, just like those fireflies,
kept on glistening so bright
Glazel Salundro Jul 2020
I love you because you demand your dreams into existence. I love you because you love the skies in peach, light orange and a shade of purple. I love you because you always made me think of the starry night when I'm with you.

I dream that we meet at
twillight, surrounded
in your lion's den
skittish, I think of leaving.
maybe feral,
I'm on my toes.

flower scattered all over
the table, break it up.
tear from sweet sugared stem
in my blue dream

Starry starry night blanket
my bed is a little too high up
lofted, I love the little
shocks of navy and grey electricity
to my mind

my duvet and softest comforter
down, all down and linen
but wild,I leave here, I am washed
in warm campfire eau de bain
hibiscus floral summer musk

Humidity on my body
condensing and dispersing again

Eerily from nothing you come
bid me heavily, don't speak
slide into my arms
placated heart of a
lion I know

shaped like this tidally locked
moon  round the nape of
your neck, joyful
from the mullet tail

pressed into my chest

and buzzed down the sides
adds  some rough texture
to softnesses of your heart
roughness to our
childlike domesticity in
our bedrooms

adds roughness to the
s l  o   w   ,   l o  w
Milky urban twillight
The dying of the Salmon
and the Cerulean Illuminated.
Adds roughness to
the sweet dying of the milky Lilac

now i am pressed into it
into you
having slid into my arms

curious reserved I nuzzle,
into a scent that isn't mine
its so futuristic, im lost
in the twillight
in this lions den

your weight
my brown skin
a reduction

and its not enough
no no i move to leave
and you growl into my heart
i want to marry a ginger biology major as when I'm perusing my J.D.

I realized too many of us forget to look up.
To look up from our busy lives,
Heartfelt cries,
and see the starry sky.

To look up from our troubles,
Our adventures,
Our times had on this earth,
And see the twinkling lights above.

Do we take them for granted,
These stars?
The ones always there?
Do we forget to realize that we can’t always see them?
So we should drink them in when we can?

Drown in the eternal abyss that is the night sky.
Breathe in deep,
Until we feel like we’re on an oxygen high.

Fill our lungs with fresh air,
Our eyes with the sky,
And get lost in all that God has created.

Watch the stars shimmer and shine.
Watch them glimmer and glow.
Watch closely for the ones that shoot across that starry sight,
Filling our hearts with childlike delight.

Make wishes,
Say prayers.
Give thanks-
That God made possible each clear dark sky and star filled night,
Each starry sight we see.
