Shamanic poetry

Sometimes Shamans write poetry. 
For me poetry starts to flow  when the world becomes too harsh  to bear and my soul recoils from it
or when I hear a majestic piece of music 
or when  I see the beauty of this stupendous world we live in. 
So I listen to my soul 
and I write what I hear:

Here  are some poems I wrote years ago:

 The Pain Of All Creatures

The pain of all creatures
enters me,it enlarges my heart,
it makes my soul cry.

I search for  tenderness;
the scent of honey suckle,
the warm summer wind,
the white moon light.

My lips are parched
from the pain of all endings.
I am the wind,
I am a leaf in a tree,
I am a blade of grass waiting for the dew.

La Luce del Giorno e' dura

Sembianza d'immagine astratta,
contrappunto di carne  e di dolore.
Posato sullo sugli alberi, nudo,
la maschera di attore mi vesto.

Lascia che io stia vicino te Signore,
perche fa tanto freddo
e la luce del giorno, e' dura

peter salomone-May 1998
