CHIARO DI LUNA di Mesut Şenol, presentatore e organizzatore del Festival



CHIARO DI LUNA

Il pover'uomo ha trovato un posto perfetto per trascorrere la notte
La sua mano si allunga come a  catturare i raggi della luce lunare
Pensando che la luna avesse una punta delle stelle lontane
Non era scoraggiato su come risolvere la sua situazione
La luna splendente era alta sopra i tetti

Questa storia non ha avuto origine da un mondo immaginario
I poveri non erano scelti da un Manitou o da uno spirito
Gli attacchi epilettici coincidono con i viaggi epici
Il consiglio pronunciato dal saggio è venuto meno
All'improvviso un discorso silenzioso è finito

Credeva di essere posseduto da alcuni poteri
Ignaro delle possibilità conosciute dall'uomo
La tradizione orale dice che c'è un accesso
Ad un altro regno, uno superiore
Aspetta e guarda cosa succede

Lo splendore della luna visita il cielo quando i tempi sono maturi
Continua con un movimento di trascinamento benevolo
Ha l'antidoto per la felicità
Ogni volta che un indigente la implora
La vecchia luna manda il suo splendore

In segreto…

Mesut Şenol
