Fureteventura

Absolutely no one
believed the dream fisher
when he told people about stars
floating on crystal clear waters,
turquoise waves of light,
and bright constellations
that had obviously survived the Night,
yet everything he said was

absolutely true.

Reflets sur la Mer, Fuerteventura © 2016 – F.G.M.

Quiet evening under the rain.
Promise of brighter mornings.
It won’t be long before swifts
fly in the sky again.

The garden is teaching
and I am learning
in the arms of Summer
three lessons in lightness.

Silent stars. Silent truth. Silent God.
The longest Day always gives more
than the shortest Night received.

Summer Soltice.
This is the same way Love extends
through Time and over all the world.

Shiver of Light

as the Sun was disappearing
below the Horizon
the Sea suddenly felt

a shiver of Light

then the Lovers heard
a Wave full of stars
uttering

the true name of the Night

Lumière du soir sur l’Atlantique © 2015/2016 – F.G.M.

Dancers of Midnight
at the break of Dawn,
little fireflies lost
in the magic of shadow theaters,

why do we not watch
the sky?
It is the place where
we were born.

We are not prisoners of the Maze.
Justice glows in the dark,
and when love falls in Love
the two Worlds become

One.

Un ange déchu
en pleine Nuit pleurait
quand de lumière de lune
tout le jardin fut inondé.

Mais ici le poète
doit garder le silence
et nul ne saura jamais
ce qu’alors il se passa.

It is a Mystery.

Toutefois je sais qu’au matin
on put voir
des traces de petits pas
disparaissant devant les roses

et même
une nymphe innocente
encore profondément émue
par ce qu’elle avait vu.

Cathedral

he who makes his heart
a cathedral of light
has nothing to fear from
the shadows of the world

he who knows
how to see with
the eyes of the Heart
will discern its true colors
