invincible

I scream with all my lungs
and with all my other lives
related to everything I am
as a mom, woman, and wife
daughter, sister, and relative
colleague, teammate, friend
wanted, imposed and loved,
in invincible dreams entitled
Healer, Fighter, Lover or Hero
and not a stork kind, seeped
created or based in mysticism
but not on scientific visions,
Stay Home! Home is our Weapon!
Make yourself Unseen like
that thing unseen, the COVID-19
which plucked our life.

refuge


Relax by Willem Haenraets

i get open like a bud of a flower
i smile playfully like is its petals
i have no fixed rules like a robot
sum my flaws, i’m not a mannequin
i love, — you, a love bred in a dream
look in my soul, there’s my refuge

alter ego


you’ll never be to me a foreign
but the friend with an alter ego
prompt always to cheer me up
to make any joy of mine bigger
and any trouble of mine smaller
you, a foreign friend I never met

la rencontre


a patch of blue in the game of colors

with the perfume of flowers kept safe
in a vase bathed in the rays of the sun
listening to gentle whispers of the sea
and spoiled with the kiss of the moon
it’s guarded with the future collections
of yesterday’s present and demagogy
when you loved not just to watch me
but to start the fire at our la rencontre
