Patrizia Mittiga

The Spring wind lightness comes over my body


My surprised heart blooms to the new flow


The weight of a tired and grieved soul moves silently away


While my look shines with a new light


Original Poem in Italian

La leggerezza del vento di primavera pervade il mio corpo


Il mio cuore si apre sorpreso al respiro nuovo


Il peso dell’anima stanca di dolore si allontana in silenzio


Mentre splende di luce nuova lo sguardo.
