le prophète

“The sun, with all those planets revolving around it and dependent on it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else in the universe to do.”  – Galileo Galilei

“If I had to choose a religion, the sun as the universal giver of life would be my god.”  – Napoleon Bonaparte

“Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.”  – Budda

le prophète

to the east

lie switzerland

l’italie et allemand

we caress borders

lumière de soleil

inches her journey

closer to me

my eyes wide

open

awaiting her

arrival

le choeur des oiseaux

extol her arrival

i feel each ray

as she approaches

warming me

nourishing the vines, lavender,

figs

gaining speed

knowing

how quickly she will

leave

across the atlantic

pacific

till all is quiet here

in her wake she

scatters crumbs

starlight

echoing whispers

we are not

alone, and

a promise of

tomorrow

Bisous,

Léa
