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.
