Hi everyone!
Today, I want to introduce you to a poem I wrote.
As I’m bilingual, a weird pattern developed along the years.
My poetry flowed naturally in French and my writings, in English.
So, forgive me if the translation is not totally faithful to it’s original text, I’ll try my best to stick to it, but I’ll still type it in French for those who are familiar with the language
and will appreciate it’s authenticity.
This poem was the result of a beautiful week of total spring-clean-frenzy, with the family as a united team.
Here goes…

Disorder
———

Together
We start
A life.
Children
Come.
We accumulate
We piled
Hoping
To find
A rest
Through
An object
Sinking
In love
And dirty
Diapers
Ignoring
The chaos
The disorder
Of our mind
Of our soul
By habit
By weariness.

The softness
The cuddles
The kisses
Smeared with
Puree.
Insomnia
Worry
The cry
Of a young
Feverish
Head
Are our
Perfumed
” Desserts ”
Of the moment
Of the instant
Of the eternity
Imagined
————-
Then,one day
The ” always ”
Takes
A turn.
Well advised
Adults
Give you
The cue
Explain to you
Implicate you
In their sophisticated
Lives.
You apply yourself
And you learn
As a baby
Laws
That never
Existed.
They left
Their cosy
Nest
But come back
On borrowed
Time
To be
Reassured.
————-
Then,torpor
Dissipates.
Finally
We ” see ”
Their past
Accumulated
Abandoned
In jam-packed
Cupboards
————-
We remedy
By orders
Given
To the ” tribe ”
Immobilized
In a gesture
Of solidarity.
Memories
Are unfolded
Dusted
A few tears ( mine! )
A lot of love.
An awareness ( them )
Of having reached
Independence,
Life.
————–
And we,
To have
Given,
Lived.
And start
A life
Of order
Serenity
To amass
To pack
Spirituality
Gaiety
Carelessness
A good atmosphere,

VACATION!!!
