I would have you beside me
for an instant of eternity
for a breath, a sight
before you dissolve into the air
my tired heart
blooms in this vibrating light of spring
to touch you would mean to cut the edge of mystery
hidden under the seventh veil of truth
and be able to fly away like a bird
even if you are only an illusion


I know I must leave early
to dance among the clouds
marvellously light and bright
maybe one day the shade of my naked feet
will touch the reflexes of the sun on the wall of your room
and il will be like a greeting behind the cover of time
and you’ll answer with the smile not even knowing why...

Our Home

we look at the stars in deep night
looking for directions of the road
lost in the endless space of the cosmos

admiring the infinity of time and space
we feel small

desperately trying not to get lost in eternity
we created our father who lives in heaven
but trying to understand him
we feel lost and confused
disturbed by their own intellect
we sail on the waves of thoughts
to overcome the limits of reason that still deceives us
the island of consciousness drifts without a route on the sea
and the cloud of ego wanders aimlessly across the sky
as if our life was a ship

we have no idea if it will be enough
courage to get to know yourself
day after day, all our life
experimenting with each step
the risk of giving the best of everything
slowly approaching the limits of endurance
learning each other until full consciousness

because it's us ourselves
we will look through the vastness of infinity
able to exceed in each moment
the threshold of our future

we cannot choose the places we came from
but it is up to us to decide where to go

The Horizon

I cannot just recover
looking at the sea and the sky, that is so blue.
Crystal azure sea,
sky with an intense color like this
that it seems painted.
How many times have I looked at them,
searching for my soul somewhere...
Where the sea covers the sky,
watching each and every change,
sky which is like a huge glass lampshade
it covers the ground, emanating rare light
emerald gold, gray and lilac,
with different shades that connect everywhere
moving various elements
in an uninterrupted exchange,
eternal metamorphosis of matter.

But this shade closes us; the blue is like a dream,
horizon is a line that limits us.
The outside world is only a reflection
inner world,
a delusion of the mind that still deceives us.

We live in the illusion of the mind,
why our brain
can not open to all consciousness?
How to free yourself from the restrictions of entries,
which old culture imposes on us?
How to open our eyes
on the vastness of infinity?

At high altitudes
the blue of the sky becomes more intense and dark
and I cannot reach the height
on which there are higher worlds...
Where we can tear off
a veil from the face of truth
and reach its depth.

Where ubiquitous love will seize us,
leading us to their infinitude.


JOANNA KALINOWSKA, says about herself, that she was born under a wandering star. She, as a child (a daughter of an officer), often moved from one place to another. These constant changes taught her the openness and the willingness to meet new people and places. She spent many years in Poland. Fifteen years ago she moved to Italy. She has always been writing but she publishes now. Her book “Ascoltando Azzurro –Wsłuchana w błękit” was written so that people who speak different languages can express the same feelings. Three volumes of her poetry were edited and her poems were printed in various anthologies and magazines. She writes and publishes in two languages, both Polish and Italian. She loves these two countries. They are her homelands. She arranged “The Amici Italia-Polonia Association”. Its headquarters there is in Taranto — the city where she lives and works. She is a teacher, but she actually works as a translator and an activist of the Polish community. She is a member of the Warsaw Association of Literature’s Translators. Joanna works for the Italian literary-cultural group “La Vallisa”, too. She also cooperates with magazine of this group. She is the initiator and organizer of many cultural and social events.
