An Evening Sky

A slash of Blue! A sweep of Gray!
                   Some scarlet patches – on the way –
                   Compose an evening sky . . .

—Emily Dickinson

So sweet was

the scent of those evenings


our steps invented long distance routes

in the summer gardens


slowly the lights were lit

and competing with the moons and the stars

formed parabolas of light

on the opaque stones of the paths.

Then, life

just begun

seemed to reveal

– just for us –

a sky of unreal colours.

Countless images

(fragments of old memories)



recreate and break

in the weary kaleidoscope

of the mind.

Lidia Chiarelli, Torino Italy
