Under the Silver Stars

love art

I dreamed I woke up
and you were by my side.
I found you,
you simply said.

What a sweet
and beautiful dream!
What a clear
and wonderful Night!

The shutters were closed,
the rain had stopped,
everything was so quiet.
The curtains moved gently.

You left, I supposed,
then the garden shone
so strangely
under the Silver Stars.

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
