30 Second Reflection - Trust

To Trust

I have so much faith in you. I believe
I could wait for your voice
silently throughout centuries
of darkness.

Like the sun
you know all the secrets:
you could make the geraniums
and the wild zagara bloom
deep in the marble
quarries and legendary

I have so much faith in you. I'm as calm
as an Arab wrapped
in his white barracan
listening to God
make the barley grow around his house.

Antonia Pozzi (1912-38) Translated from Italian.
