SOME OF MY POEMS

Guido Pagliarino

 

CENTRAL STAR

 

The blinding sun

that illuminated the ordinary things

of an escaping day

has just turned himself off

behind the horizon

letting an effusion

of orange and crimson

and a central Star.

In the sudden quiet,

the mind turns to that drop of light

more luminous than the sun,

and, by  the Grace of God,  accepts

the whole universe.
