Children face the light

Children face the light

23 September 2018


children 5AA-utah-pinterest com



Blackbirds in mind swirl

Loud cries’ strident pillars felt

Weight in my tear ducts


Soulless creatures crawl

In the dark alleys some breathe

Agony in mind


Sun bursts in sockets

Jasmine withers in heatwave

Known features dwindle


Windows carry floods

From peaks to valleys we drop

Blood from the Elders


Crimson my waters

Morrow’s seasons shook in tides

Wavelength scorches sight


Dark eyes starry pools

Small hands tools of forgiveness

Children face the light


Reading of the poem: 

The sky is crying – Gary BB Coleman

The monsoon relief

The monsoon relief

20 August 2018



Dust, rubble and clay

Irregular particles

Unwinding the day


Swaying drumstick tree

Whispering with winds that blow

Heavy sun kisses


Shuddering skies heave

Lightning announcing the rain

The monsoon relief


Reading of the poem: 

Flam – Monsoon (Buddha Bar)

I walk with you

I talk to you

Through the summer sky

I talk to you

When the clouds all cry

I talk to you

In the powdery snow

I talk to you

In the sun’s halo


And when all the seasons are changing

Only my love is spent rearranging

All the words that we’d been exchanging

From our hearts that are never changing


I walk with you

Through the rustling trees

I walk with you

Never on my knees

I walk with you

You’re the only one I see

I walk with you

There’s none else for me


And when all the seasons are changing

Only my love is spent rearranging

All the words that we’d been exchanging

From our hearts that are never changing


I talk to you

Through the summer sky

I talk to you

When the clouds all cry


I walk with you

Through the rustling trees

I walk with you

Never on my knees


And when all the seasons are changing

Only my love is spent rearranging

All the words that we’d been exchanging

From our hearts that are never changing

Skies that rise

Forgotten the wise

Set sunrise

On demise

The nothing in glaring beam

To be what they seem


Birds that mock

Seasons out of stock

Set the lock

On havoc

Desolation way of stream

In the human dream


None to stand

I let go Her hand

Cattle brand

In the land

No power left to rewind

Destiny of blind


Sands that grind

Rising seas unkind

Stars that wind

In Her mind

Death oncoming theirs to find

Earth in crust to bind


Dust piling

Thunder beguiling

Ropes filing

Times riling

Unshed the voice of the meek

In the desert streak


Ceilings peel

Pillars downtown reel

Tendrils feel

Tombstones seal

Winds of raging death that reek

Of destruction’s peak

Dream 1 (Before the wind blows it all away) – Max Richter

The multi-petal Lotus

The multi-petal Lotus

essence twinflames ae


Whirling void

The mind to avoid

In heart cries

The bee flies

Towards destiny that lies

Beyond strange borders


New orders

Rearranging Time

Within rhyme

Wiping grime

Recreating the seasons

The need for reasons


Mapping stars

Compounding the flowers

Winding clocks

Hanging stocks

Christmas early in heart talks

The multi-petal Lotus

True Love that fenders

Seasons fly

In the greying sky

Winter’s last

Face downcast

Brooding through the memories past

Fishing net to cast


See me rise

In eastern sunrise

Land yellow

Heart mellow

Soft they spoke now they bellow

Seeking own fellow


Safety keep

In the rising heap

Bones that pile

Wilting smile

One by one they cast down tile

Sweltering roof beguile


Shelter build

With the Golden Guild

Bridge in ink

Over brink

Cast the shores for ships that sink

In true minds hearts think


Chest to bare

Dragons lay in lair

Holding dear

Scales to rear

Music boxes that they fear

Balance of the seer


Crawl ensnare

Three who move the air

Breath benders


Guards of night that surrenders

True love that fenders

The gowns flow

Like rivers of lime


The seventh crime

Nine gates carry to the rhyme

That unfolds in Heart


Renewed start

In seasons squared root

The owls hoot

To the moon

They speak of wish dead too soon

In folds of the night


Brief respite

Encounters of lips

In the dark

Shadows lisp

Unheard names before the lark

Chirps to the unseen


Ravens bleed

Velvet of the night

They hop low

Like a crow

Three blackbirds join in the show

Clipped wings fly too slow



Gleaning compromised

By free will

Flown downhill

Through the aisle like corpse reeling

Loss of the feeling


Wrapping up

Loose ends that flutter

Gifts resist

Grim gutter

Words that Heart will not utter

The fornever more


Reading of the poem: 


I’ll remember you – Sophie Zelmani

Waiting for the Miracle to come – Sophie Zelmani

Stay with my Heart – Sophie Zelmani

Thwarting Time

My hands unconstrained

Strumming rhyme

As it rained

From heavens dewdrops gathered

In my blooming Heart


The moon spake

Of suns disappeared

Like spirits

Of the leaves

Upon fall of seasons rake

Disincarnate flow


She said soft

I rise while he sets

I bed him

He bid me

A goodbye morrow’s token

The flaming bushes

Song to the moon – Antonin Dvorak (Soprano: Renée Fleming)

Like ghosts in the rain

Like ghosts in the rain

3 June 2016

Winding through alleys

Cutting through the Tuscan winds

Shades of summer skies


Do you remember

The streets stretched out like cobwebs

Green lanes sprawling out


We twirled like spiders

Spinning webs of memories

Glistening in the dark


All those moments fade

Like the storm that once blew hard

Subsiding glowers


The seasons slow-paced

They walk into each other

Never-ending dance


Untouched shades of us

Fighting under dark waters

Against oblivion


I know a small nook

Where we twirl silently

Like ghosts in the rain

Le temps immuable saisons en solstice

Les saisons de cœur chanson pour muets

Etreindre douleurs diapasons fluets

Mots inabordables fermés les calices


Las impénétrables de roches interstices

Les raisons de peur refrains pour muer

Impatientes couleurs les tempêtes huer

Vois impérissable senteur des blancs Lys


Raisons dérisions le temps des débats

Le flanc exposé nombreux les vautours

Amours confusions piétinés abats


Passé composé le temps des détours

Humour perfusions le cœur qu’on abat

Silence imposé s’en va trois petits tours

The time unchangeable seasons solstices

Seasons of the heart, song for the dumbstruck

Embracing the pains slender tuning forks

Words unaffordable closed chalices


Tired impenetrable of rock the interstices

The reasons of fear, refrains for change

Impatient colors the storms derange

See the lasting scent of the white lilies


Reasons derision debates interval

The exposed flank many the vultures

Loves confusion trampled offal


Past perfect compounded time of detours

Humor infusions the heart being felled

Imposed silence leaves on three little tours

It is as always very difficult to translate poetry from French into English. I shall just take an example to showcase this which is not due merely to the words but also to the different cultural references. For example the last words of the poem “s’en va trois petits tours” which illustrates well this difficulty in translating some French poems into English:


Trois petits tours alludes to the children’s song, the equivalent of nursery rhymes in English, “Trois petits tours et puis s’en va” which somehow brings to mind a pattern of something coming to play along and then leaving for some other playgrounds elsewhere before coming back again.
At the same time there is an implicit reference to three towers that could be three choices that would lock the poet but we don’t know what is the nature of each tower, whether it could be an ivory tower of isolation or a tower of loss of independence, the tower of a lover, the tower of a tyrant etc. I let you imagine different outcomes as the case may be with your own personal experience 🙂


A very big thank you to Globalinfo4all ( who sent me the reference of this fantastic composer Yuhki Kuramoto that just ignited the writing of this poem. My poems are always based on personal experiences but these are somehow dormant inside until a spark ignites them, such as the one today from my friend G4all. Note: I wish people would put clearly their name in their gravatar (available under public display name for your gravatar). You can name your wordpress website whatever you want but it would be really nice if you actually went to your gravatar and put a proper public display name that we could refer to you by (and I mean this for all people who have those mysterious or totally unreadable or “unmouthable” names). We poets and writers love to relate so if you want to remain anonymous, please at least put a fake name that we can call you by 🙂
