Certi Luoghi

written by: Raffaella Massari

 

Non è chiaro
Il potere che hanno
certi luoghi amati.
Donano inizi ad ogni ritorno e lasciano
vuoti da colmare sino all'orlo ad ogni partenza.
Nel tempo di mezzo stabiliscono asili
al centro del cuore,
predisposti ad accoglierci in fuga.

Non è chiaro
come luoghi e persone si combinino fra loro
Se per istinto, per gusto, per sentimento
O un po' per questo e altro ancora.

É chiaro invece quanto anche in questo,
dell'arte dell'appartenenza si tratti.
