Linda Saccoccio: Rotations

Rotations

Colors, come together
Like packs of wolves
Or Italians in public spaces
A market, cinema, or a bus
Clustered, clinging, friction
The space, air, is shared
Unconditionally, unconsciously
Howling, buzzing
Rotating around the sun
A bee circling a lily on a pond
Nectar its bliss
Succumbing to union
Birthed to process, pattern, productivity
Time turns the water
An acorn drops and enters
Concentric ripples radiate
Perfectly paced intervals
A turtle dives deep below
A frog winks with his inside joke
More ripples rock his boat
Moss green algae
Dark green lily pads
Tip and waver
In the motion of summer pleasures
In the colors of the afternoon
Paddle your boat to nowhere
It’s a fine everywhere
With romancing colors
Arm in arm
  
(Linda Saccoccio, 2010)

Linda Saccoccio: Eve

 

 Eve


Deception, perception
A broken glass
A ruptured rib and rite
Spared
For Eve
Basking nude in sun honey
Where serpents and apples tempt
Into or out of
Paradise?
A thermometer of time
Hangs to torment
Third eye vision
Blocked
Linear
Rigid myth
Bright, innocent, 
elegant face
For fate to fondle
Fair and forgiving
She takes the ride
For art, religion and history’s sake
Possibly for Pete’s
Predominately
Luscious lust
of and for
Holy Ghost’s
Spirit
  
(Linda Saccoccio, 2010)

Linda Saccoccio: Loosened Knots

 

 

Loosened Knots

Melancholic blazing day
Loosened knots
Trapped bunny-head balloon
Released in a game
Tempting the fatal
Escapes the wistful child’s hand
Atmosphere of devilish humor
Draws it into oblivion
Cobblestone curbing
Art of Italian grandpa, Nonno
Shoelaces untied
Loose and listless
Grayed from running
from madness running
Seeking
Bliss of the wind 
Flight fantasies soar
Birdcall, bicycle squeak whistle
Pattern
Sundays
weekly church hymns
St. Rocco’s bare exposed leg
Rocky stream tales
Trails
Falls
Water
Tears
Down
Solitary
Splendid
Chaos
      
(Linda Saccoccio, 2010)

Linda Saccoccio: Ancient Present

 

Ancient Present

Postures curved
aching, troubled angles
Inner tombs
Mirrored walls
Arches exquisite for fine extravagances
Crowds of tourists
European landmarks
Versailles or St. Peter’s or…
Voices and bodies that labored
Laborers who caretake and visit
General public in royal palaces
Fine, the line between
Interior and exterior
An elder hunched, slowly
Walks home in the countryside
Thriving scrub and flora
Lift souls
Above their woes
Contained in a space
Grief, madness, and transcendence
      
(Linda Saccoccio, 2010)
