Scattering

“In one of those stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing, when you look at the sky at night. And when your sorrow is comforted (time soothes all sorrows) you will be content that you have known me. You will always be my friend…I shall not leave you.”
― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

“Aim for the moon. If you miss, you may hit a star.”
– W. Clement Stone

“Here is my secret. It’s quite simple: One sees clearly only with the heart. Anything essential is invisible to the eyes.”
― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

Scattering

Every new

Moon

I curl up

In my

Curvaceous

Crescent

Encircled

By each

Starry night

Celestial dreams

Await me

There is no man

Here

I control

The ebb

And flow

Of the

Seas

I watch

Over your

Attempts

To comprehend

Me

To encapsulate

Into ode

Or song

It is difficult

When you

Haven’t

The language

Of the

Universe

Bemused

My laughter

Scatters

Stardust

Bisous,

Léa

    1. Thank you so much. It is always lovely to hear from you. I tend to burn the candle at both ends, I hate to go to sleep but am up with the sun… 🙂

    1. Thank you. I am happy you enjoyed the poem. I have long enjoyed Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and now that I live in his homeland I am re-discoverying him as I read him in French. We do share a birthday and on that day, I re-read Le Petit Prince. 🙂
      The sky here is much more accessible than where I lived in America. I am glad to be HOME!

    1. I do believe there is a universal language that can be heard, seen and felt. Thank you for your kind comment. I hope you to continue to enjoy future posts.
