Sweet and sour, bonus of the hour
————————————

Where have you gone
Where are the birdsongs
The spume and waves
Buckets and spades

Dried mouth
Crackled earth and drought
Speak to me
I want to see

Create out of vagary (1)
Tears, diamonds to be
Fatigue…strength unlaced
Poems, cascading grace

Suffering… laughter down the alley
All I want as an identity
Is to breathe through that song
Once you have gone

Crash with the waves
Sleep with buckets and spades
Fly where rivers speak
Where wind plays music

Where dawn breaks
On mountain peaks
And sun sets
Out of jealousy

Betrayed by night
Teased out of sight
What nonsense do I speak
When words glide into me!

Needs a lot of polishing
To make this poem neat
Where have you gone
Just spoke to me

Come! Haunt my dreams
I need you to be
Not understand
Life’s intricacies

Sweet and sour
Bonus of the hour

It is as perfect as can be!

(1) Vagary.
Caprice.
Extravagant notion or action.

To the quarrelsome, all our wishes -January 2013

All our wishes
—————

Beautiful person
Warm and sincere
Accomplishing
Your dreams

Fame, beauty, furs
Very little for you
Dear to all the hearts
Paroxysm of fervor

Your ardent request
To be reciprocated
Your hunger for more…
Adulation and worship

Your yearning became
Your weakness, zeal
Turned to hostility
Love broke to fragments

Limited, sectional, separatist
Erratic condemnation
Supercilious and arbitrary
All gone in a moment of conceit

What you thought was
A Bona fide to another
Was plain arrant disaster
To what was dear to our hearts

Yet, we wish you
With all humanity
To come back,
As compunctious as can be

With renewed awareness
Tolerant and receptive
Nonjudgmental
To its supreme

To fulfill your dreams
Not of fame or beauty
Your request, hunger
For what is dear to…

Our understanding.

My first steps into the world of art 2007


I am posting today three of my first sketches ( well, almost, I tried out my hand on faces & profiles too )
Those sketches were very significant to me. They let me fantasize and peak, into a future I thought
could only stay in the domain of dreams 🙂
Have a wonderful day!

I called this painting Serenity because that’s the feeling I had throughout this work.
It is actually one of the many magnificent spots in the Taroko National Park in Taiwan which is located in the East.
It lies across three administrative areas, Hualien county, Taichung county and Nantou county.
Let me know what you think about it!

Wake up my solitary ! 1987 ( Translation from French in post below as “Réveilles toi mon solitaire!” )

Hi everyone!

Here’s the translation which I know is not ideal, nevertheless I appreciate you, making the effort
to read it, for the bilinguals, I hope you enjoyed it ! Have a lovely day !

The solitary
————–

You, the solitary
You only read your universe
That defies the customs of time
That shuns proprieties, people

Asphyxiated when surrounded
Anguished when neglected
You deny hypocrisy
And you search in vain, THEE friend

Honesty in others
Harmony, half words said
Silence, always understood
Little, but a lifetime

You demand a world
Which does not exist on earth
You run after a dream
That shatters when dawn breaks

Wake up my solitary !

Réveilles toi mon solitaire! 1987 ( French poetry translated in post above as “Wake up my solitary!” )

Le solitaire
————–

Toi, le solitaire
Tu ne lis que ton univers
Qui défie les coutumes du temps
Qui fuit les convenances, les gens

Asphyxié lorsque entourer
Angoissé lorsque délaisser
Tu renies l’hypocrisie
Et tu recherches en vain, L’AMI

L’honnêteté chez autrui
L’entente, les mots à demi
Un silence toujours compris
Peu de choses, mais toute une vie

Tu exiges tout un univers
Qui n’existe sur terre
Tu cours après un rêve
Qui se brise quand l’aube se lève

Réveilles toi mon solitaire!

Merci et bonne journée !
