i wish #poetry

i wish

i had the talent of the poet

who once wrote

Calm down, my Sorrow,

We must move with care.


I’ll have the shadow

of the autumn

when you’ll


like a seagull

heaving upward

an aching


choking call.


prompt: inscrutable


“Calm down, my Sorrow, We must move with care.”, Charles Baudelaire, Meditation

Painting: Paul Delaroche, The Young Martyr

    n’ayant aucun rapport avec la réussite du tableau

    Quand l’oiseau arrive s’il arrive observer

    le plus profond silence”

      attendre s’il le faut pendant des années”
