Maria Tosti was born in 1965 in Perugia (Italy) and lives in a small Umbrian town crossed by the river Tiber. She writes poems since adolescence. She participated at several national poetry awards along the years, getting many appreciations. Her poetry is a path of reflections and considerations on the human existence and the life experiences. Creating is a breath of art for her, and setting the emotions on the paper is to give voice to the inspiration that comes from inside with insistence. She is convinced that Poetry doesn’t belong only to the intellectuals, but it belongs to everybody because it is a universal message destined to touch the strings of the sensitivity of each individual, permeating the nuances of his feeling. She likes writing poetry in other languages too, such as English, Spanish and French. One of her poems in English has been published in the “English Bridge” journal of the Chongjing Southwest University (China) in the year 2009. Some of her “visual poems” in English have been published by “Ashvamegh” an international journal of English Literary of New Delhi (India) in the year 2016. She also wrote the text of some songs in Italian, looking for a new way of expression and a new artistic technique. Two of her texts have been set to music, one by the Italian composer Pasqualino Moscatelli, and the other by the master Daniel Cianelli. Her literary debut was with the book "Voci ai confini dell’anima” that can be translated into “Voices to the bounderies of the soul”, published by Thoth Editions in the year 2014. The book includes poems in Italian, English, French and Spanish.
TO THE BOUNDERIES OF THE SOUL Come on, I will take you with me on this short journey towards the boundaries of the soul. I'm waiting for you at the crossroads of infinity along with an old suitcase of memories, of letters and photos worn by time. I will take you you to know the canvases that I have painted with just my words, using emotions for colours, stealing everywhere foreshortenings of life. I will let you look at the world with my eyes, to taste the days of sun and storm, You will see sunsets colour the sky And horizons stretch as far as you can see and days of rain wash away every bitterness, going beyond the bridges of restlessness. I will lead you through rural paths, to calm waters and harmonious hills, to the pleasant search for kingdoms where emotions and feelings take life and beat the time that passes. The soul is our true abode, rooted in every breath of ours. To find its true essence is to discover its universe. I leave you a part of me on this journey in these pages written with the ink of dreams, TAKE CARE OF IT... © Maria Tosti 2014
