The Sea

It shows up in front of us
So peaceful
So crystalline.
It becomes the swans’ dance floor,
The seagulls’ airstrip,
Maybe even a skating rink?
It gently rocks the travelers
The white-crested waves crash against the sandy shore.
It leaves us maybe an oyster or an abandoned shell
As souvenirs.
It caresses our face with a breeze
To feel its presence.
The sea... so peaceful,
So crystalline
Like a mirror that reflects the sun rays during beautiful days
And the moonlight of the starry sky.

The Reflection

Up there on the clear sky
Not at all unkindly,
A small white ball
Is flying peacefully.
For hours he’s flapping his swan wings
In search of his soul mate.
Overtaken by tiredness
He looked for a place to rest.
And what better place to relax
Than on the House of God?
Walking along on the stone brim
He thought he saw someone.
Could it be his soul mate?
He slowly approaches
The winged beauty,
Who caught his heart
From the first time he laid eyes on her.
He cooed for hours
And she still didn’t give an answer.
He stretched his wing to touch her,
But how sad he was when
He felt stone instead of feathers.
He shed large tears
When he found out that she was just a work of art.
Just a mere reflection.
Caressed by hope
And encouraged by the lion,
He admired his reflection.
Then after bidding farewell,
He spread his wings
And took flight.

The Musical Rose

In an enchanted glade within a forest
A growing crowd gathers every evening
To hear the songs of the musical rose.
Her spikes prevents some crazed fans from giving her a bear hug,
No offense, Mr. Bear!
“I’m taking it,” he grunted,
Then moved his large body into the rhythm of the joyful song.
Green is the skin of the little soprano,
She wears a seductive red, playful pink, snow white,
Orange, blue, sunny yellow or black as tar dress
Depending on the type of song she sings.
The songbirds serve as the chorus,
Only those brave enough dares to join in.
But the prestigious diva does show respect
For the greatest singers of all time, the angels.
