the desert and the barren

grow rocks and sands

as the bushes burn


insects crawl so fast the earth seems to move

snakes and lizards hurry from invisible enemy

all the survivors

keep each other company

the cactus and the rosemary

thyme and the mirto

the euphorbia and the lentisco


we roam in this invisible company


sunlight and tramontana


rilke just one stranger amonst others



surviving has found its dialect
