'Wishing...' Luca M Damiani - Kiss and Arrow 2023 -

As we close another year,

we do some wishing.

Wishing our blood and veins

reaching for “the other” with no fear.
Wishing a torch to light the dark
so that we can finally see the way.
Wishing a tranquil and safe rhyme,
even though we know it might not be.
Wishing our dear existence to cease
the constant conflicts we can’t escape.
Wishing a possibility of resurgence
of love, reason and quiet spirit.
Wishing “bring them home”,
and bring justice and hope for All.
Wishing our next unbalanced steps
can find the way within the pain.
Wishing our smiles can be richer
in surfing currents of distant hugs.
Wishing change when needs to be
as well as steadiness where is required.
Wishing a fresh beginning in this sudden present
of new pasts and waves of to-be futures.
