The Song of Amazement

Come rain or shine
wild flowers remain graceful
and the Moon knows light and shade
can get along just fine.

In a world of dreams
you can go as you please
for the Flame does not flicker
in the breeze.

The birth of a rose,
the life of a bird,
nothing lasts for long
but Love is more patient than I,

and so I sing
the Song of the Dawn Sky
the Song of the Evening Star
the Song of Amazement!

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.

Blue Summer Morning

like twin poppies under the sky
I forget everything
because it’s just a glorious
blue summer morning

stories and worries
yesterdays, tomorrows
vain joy, true grief
dead-ends or seashores

the empire of Lights
the depths of darkness
greetings as farewells
and the fountain of youth

the silence of God
the Devil’s masquerade
their mysterious charade
dreams and even the Dreamer

like twin poppies under the Sky
I forget everything
because it’s just a glorious
blue summer morning
