autumn day

an island in the brown pool,

coffee-machine

winter day

in my aunt's drawyer,

a collection of butterflies

 

 

 

red stain

on the carpet

a snail retreating

 

 

 

lamp burning hot

a spider escapes

into darkness

 

 

 

October sun

the last fly strikes

against the pane

 

 

 

turtle pausing    my father's foot

 

 

 

falling leaves

at sunset

last dragonfly

 

 

 

cherry blossoms in her hair

the girl buying

a wedding dress

 

 

 

morning fog

young mushrooms

outside my door

 

-- Sara Aguzzoni (English versions by the author and Anatoly Kudryavitsky)

 

 

 

magpie

carrying a crystal

second sun in the water

the pool wearing

a white veil

on the white sand

a waterdrop

down the pane

Romania

 

fading moon

out of the mist,

morning birds' song

 

 

 

softly lit by moonlight,

a sunflower head

on the table

 

 

 

black smoke

coiling up against the moon:

mother's hair

 

 

 

first snow

children cut the icing

off a cake

 

 

 

the scent of pinewood

blends with my breath

his perfume

 

 

 

radiant sunbeams

a spider in the centre

of his shining web

 

 

 

steep riverbank

a duck hides beneath

translucent icicles

 

 

 

how many rainbows

this sunny morning!

mother's necklace

 

 

 

piano music...

a cherry blossom petal

stuck to the wet pane

winter rain

a withered fir-tree

sliding down the slope

into the yellow sunset

Indian summer
