Red skies of Africa

RED AFRICA 300x217 Red skies of Africa Romano Pisciotti

Red skies of Africa:
enchanted sunsets
as a prelude
to hunting nights
among the stars.
Songs of passion
from peoples who,
in the darkness,
watch over their dead.
Silent warriors
seek the pride lost
in the eddies of oil
and in the hatred
between brothers.
The great rivers
drag shame to the sea,
but they can not
wash consciences.

Romano Pisciotti

Cieli di Africa rossi di tramonti incantati, preludono a notti di caccia tra le stelle e canti di passione di popoli che vegliano nel buio i loro morti. Silenziosi guerrieri cercano l’orgoglio disperso nei gorghi di petrolio e nell’odio tra fratelli. I grandi fiumi trascinano al mare la vergogna, ma non possono lavare le coscienze.
