Moonlight

Time is not flowing
like a river to the sea.
The river is a dream
and I am

a leaf in the stream.

You are not moving
through space.
Spaces move through you
for you are a bird

creating skies.

Really, we are
neither men nor women
neither bodies nor souls
but only the Light in the Word

True Nature / Vraie Nature

starry-night

we are not
fireflies
dreaming they are
stars

we are
stars
believing they only are
fireflies

nous ne sommes pas
des lucioles
rêvant d’être
des étoiles

nous sommes
des étoiles
qui croient n’être que
des lucioles

Iron Mask

Iron Mask

Faceless witnesses
lost in a sad masquerade
we all have to wear
an iron mask,

but there’s no reason
to hide our weaknesses,
they only are
our future strengths.

Let’s open our eyes
we’ll see a flower Garden!
Naked children of the Sky
always go to Heaven!
