This is a poem I had read in 1985 and enjoyed so much the style and its brilliancy, that I wrote it down. Today, I want to share it with my faithful readers ­čÖé

Speed
—–

Speed is synonymous with drunkenness
Stupidity is synonymous with weakness
Life is synonymous with tenderness
Death is synonymous with wisdom
—————
If speed and stupidity become one
Life and death form a whole
—————
For drunkenness is a weakness
And tenderness is a wisdom

Jean-Yves Remiche ( Bastogne )

Vitesse
——-

La vitesse est synonyme d’ivresse
La bêtise est synonyme de faiblesse
La vie est synonyme de tendresse
La mort est synonyme de sagesse
—————–
Si la vitesse et la b├¬tise ne font qu’un
La vie et la mort forment un tout
—————–
Car l’ivresse est une faiblesse
Et la tendresse une sagesse

Jean-Yves Remiche ( Bastogne )

Clean slate
————

He turns
In despair
Facing the sky
Not knowing why

Asking for,
Intelligence
To read
The signals

Take care
Rest his soul
Abandon
The fear

Control
The changes
The unknown
Till where

How far
It will go
Understand
The wandering

Misunderstand
What appears
To be evil
Lose harshness

To the abyss
Love with
His heart
Not blabber

Tell them, listen
Validate
His own.
Erasing

Invalidity
Wanting
The energy
Long forgotten

Sucked
In a porthole.
Concentrate
On the finer

Larger, fitter
Worthier.
Feeling
Those moments

Those things
That come back
As delicate
As a blow

Of the wind
On his face.
The shivers
Along his spine

The burning
A clean slate.
Consigned
To oblivion

Dismissed
From his mind
A loss of
Consciousness

Obliterated
From his percipience.
Time, the father
Of wisdom

He lets it
Run its course.
Normalcy
His lease.

Prayer in his heart
Straight to the
First pages
Of his book

Of patience
Toward his life.
Need him
Need them

Family, friends
Children encompassing
Their love, his love.
Circumvent

The laws, accepting…
