SILENCE AND LIGHT

Silence the aura of desire
To be, to express
Light To be, to be
Spent light
The material
Silence to light
Light to silence
Where they cross
The thresholds
The inspirations
Where the desire to express
Meets the possible
Where the unmeasurable meets the measurable
The work of Savelli Moves from silence to light
Stopping at light and asking of it the barest of presence
In it lies the essence of poetry, the essence of poet
The one who weeps because he must use words.
His work evokes the prior to presence.
