The First Lights of the Day
The first lights of the day
When I first think of you
With passion, certitude and fear…
Strong tea and decadent cake
Vivid materializations of my
Stubborn rages and meek essence…
The liquid quality of the words
Surfacing the density of the night
The stretches of river yet to walk
The predictable and the unknown
The aim, the boat and its fragility
Amazing colors, shapes and names
Paths to discover, stories to thrill…
Simple pieces of a simple mechanism:
Life intensely lived, words, you and me
(These are a few of my favorite things.)
