leaving the nest

This Poem was inspired by the Biopsy I had to do in 1988 for my sinuses, which was not
a big deal yet was a fearful moment, maybe for the only reason of taking us out of our
routine, who knows?

Enjoy it and let me know. Thanks for your spontaneous reactions to ” The girl with the pearl ”
drawing and Trailer, I really appreciate!

The Biopsy

We leave the nest
Without making our bed
We seize life
Under the rain

Alone, alone
With the fear
Always alone
In ones heart

Isolated in our fear
That generates pain
Isolated in our trial
That generates angst

We reinstate the nest
To take care of our bed
And ” replay ” life
Beaming at us!


La Biopsie

On quitte le nid
Sans faire son lit
On saisit la vie
Sous la pluie

Toute seule, toute seule
Avec la peur
Toujours toute seule
Dans son coeur

Isoler dans sa frayeur
Qui engendre la douleur
Isoler dans son épreuve
Qui engendre la peur

Puis on réintègre son nid
Pour s’occuper de son lit
Et on ” rejoue ” la vie
Qui nous irradit!

  1. Dear OA, I love the poem of leaving the nest. I would have liked it even better if you had written “I” instead of “WE” _ more personal – just my 5 cents

    • I wrote WE ( meaning it can happen to anyone, WE all do the same things and have mostly same reactions to certain circumstances ) WE is global, it encapsulates mankind , and as a result, easier for people to relate.
      Thanks for sharing.
