I woke up early this morning. I hear a light noise beyond my open window.
It’s raining.
Everything is surrounded by the shadows of the night. I get up and I brew some coffee in my moka pot.
The scent of espresso blends in with the smell of wet terrain.
I stop and stand on the threshold.
Dawn breaks over the trees and vegetables of my garden.
Some geranium plants are on the top an old wall. I see them red water soaked flowers and in the middle of them a little basil plant in a terracotta pot. It’s like me, it’s happy to pass by unnoticed. The only thing it matter its its amazing smell.
I come back in the kitchen and have breakfast: a glass of milk and a slice of my egg whites cake.
Then I clean my vegetables. I manage to bake something tasty for lunch today.

Mi sveglio mentre un rumore leggero si infrange in mille echi al di là della mia finestra.
Piove.
La luce è ancora poca. Mi alzo, spalanco la porta di casa e metto sul fuoco la macchinetta del caffè.
Gli odori si mischiano, l’aroma del liquido nero e la terra bagnata.
Con la tazzina fumante in mano mi siedo sull’uscio.
Albeggia.
Vedo alberi e orti, un muro adorno di gerani in fila.
Sono pieni di fiori rossi intrisi di gocce d’acqua e dai vasi di terracotta urlano al mondo la loro esuberante bellezza. In mezzo a loro una piantina di basilico. E’ compatta, le sue foglie non superano il limite dell’ideale cilindro tracciato dal vaso.
Sento la fine dell’estate.
Torno in cucina e faccio colazione con un bicchiere di latte e la torta fatta di soli bianchi d’uovo.
Poi mi metto a pulire la verdura, oggi voglio lasciar pronto qualcosa di buona per il pranzo.
