DEW PEARLS

Pearls of dew
In the emerald green morning
Bathed in the rays
Of the winter sun…

At dawn of my yearnings
In pursuit of my desires more secrets …
I found them by chance
On the floor of water
Of my dream!

 

IT’S LIFE

I thank God …
For this life …
That trembles in my hands …
By being able to admire and feel …
This fertile ground, which I step …
The clouds and the rain …
The snow and hail …
The sun that fertilizes and heats me …
And makes the earth sprout life!
But get me out of my chest …
This passion that makes me mad !

I thank God…
The stars that dot the night …
And they encourage me to dream …
Joy and laughter …
Of whom, learned to love …
The seas, the rivers and the fountains …
The trees, the flowers and the bridges …
Flirt in the moonlight …
And the wind that brings me your voice …
lullabying me sweetly
In this my half walnut shell …
And all this beautiful nature …
That is also mine and yours!

I thank God…
The strength and courage …
Determination and hope …
Faith and Discernment …
The daring …
And above all, love …
To walk forward with joy …
In this suspended line on the unknown …
That is LIFE!
