A Treasure of Light

Thinner than silk paper
softer than mango butter
it looks like both
a frangipani flower
and that special ray of sunshine
able to soften any stone.

Reasons remain unknown,
but as sure as day follows Night
a Treasure of Light
has stolen my heart
and such beauty
gives me the shivers.

From now on
I can touch
the skin of your soul.

A Place of Mystery / Un lieu de mystère

Harebell
love-in-a-mist
wild marigold
incredible cosmos.

It’s a mess of flowers,
a colorful animated painting
loved by the butterflies,
a Place of Mystery.

There, the soul of a little bird
can get some rest,
and the sky never ends
above its grave.

Campanule
nigelle
souci des champs
incroyable cosmos.

C’est un fouillis de fleurs,
un vivant tableau de couleurs
aimé des papillons,
un lieu de Mystère.

Là, l’âme d’un petit oiseau
trouve quelque repos,
et le ciel est immense
au dessus de sa tombe.
