Back from Spain: CALIMA

The Calima is  a hot, oppressing dust wind

originating in the Saharan Air Layer

It passes over the Canary Islands

where it takes the form of a fog

that reduces visibility

and deposits a layer of dust over everything,

creeping  through doors and windows.

CALIMA,  IL VENTO DELLE CANARIE

Adoro essere avvolta

Dal  tuo rovente abbraccio

Sentire l’alito sferzarmi il collo

Le lunghe dita scompigliarmi i capelli

E sollevarmi il vestito

Per percorrermi  tutta

Con quella sferza di sabbia

Che penetra  calda in ogni mio poro

Lasciandomi esausta

Sfinita dal ricordo del tuo ardore
