Venice, Looking East from the Guidecca, Sunrise (1818) by J.M.W Turner.
I often look
to the sky.

I look in the morning
when the first light climbs
and the whole thing clings
to my eyes.

It comes
to drink, and I cling
to it like a plant
that devours the light.
Io guardo spesso il cielo. Lo guardo di mattino nelle
ore di luce e tutto il cielo s'attacca agli occhi e viene a
bere, e io a lui mi attacco, come un vegetale
che si mangia la luce.

Mariangela Gualtieri (1951–)
