Общ език/Common language

And because beginnings are precious,
I’m back again. It’s not so far
and all the imaginary occasions
play out across landscapes,
still lifes, portraits I seem
to know. Nothing precise –
but in these brush-strokes words,
reminders of so much
I’ve yet to know.

In the kitchen that day,
we anticipated
precarious coincidence –
faces, bicycles, hills,
meetings in the park –
and then, as if intent
on becoming a prediction,
these peppers that hang
behind us, their solidity,
the first painting of yours I saw.

This is our 100th post on Colourful Star since we launched the project in January 2014. Since then we've been posting our collaborations every Friday and at other times to mark special dates or anniversaries. This post also features on the international poetry website Iris News where we will also be publishing selections from Colourful Star in the future. You can find it here with a translation into Italian by Chiara De Luca. Many thanks to everyone who's visited any of our 100 posts so far and we hope you'll return to see how the project continues to develop. Marina, Vasilena & Tom
