The violin of an apprentice
———————————

Abrade his throes
Lighten his eyes
Fortify his mettle.
– – – – – –
You had the attribute
To have cradled
Many of my evenings,
Sleepless nights and
Vanishing slumber

Where I rummaged
Finding myself
Through the written.
Recovering the pieces

Of your appeasing
Countenance…You were
My defender the guardian
Of my dwelling…You

Restored flavor to the
Prosaic day, proffered
A rainbow counter to
Setbacks, clarified
Tarnished horizons…
– – – – – – –
Vibrate in his soul the
Delicate tremolo of an
Apprentice’s violin.

Le violon d’un apprenti
——————————

Pulvérise ses affres
Eclaircis ses yeux
Fortifie sa vaillance
– – – – – –
Tu as eu l’apanage
De bercer tant de
Mes soirées, nuits
Blanches au sommeil
Fuyant, où je

Fouillais me retrouvant
A travers l’écrit,
Récupérant les Morceaux
De ton expression

Appaisante. Tu étais
Mon défenseur, le gardien
De ma demeure, tu as
Restauré la saveur au

Jour prosaïque,
Offert un arc-en-ciel
A l’encontre de
Déboires, clarifié les
Horizons ternies…
– – – – – –
Fais vibrer son âme
Du délicat tremolo du
Violon de l’apprenti.

This sketch I drew, is of a newborn baby that has become my Calliope 🙂

As you can observe throughout my posts, the poems composed in the 80’s
or 90’s are totally different to the ones of 2000… in the sense that
they are still searching “Life” and its meaning.

Let me know what you think of these Lyrics!

A life with a Calliope (1)
—————————-

You sing songs
Of happiness
Hum notes
Of joy
You rip
The curtain
Dividing
Our hearts
The mountain
That led
Us apart

Our throes
Too grim
To untangle
You hold
Firmly
On the morrow
But it is
All carbon
Hold my hand
Usher me
To your band

Coax me
To your song
The life
You belong
Expose
The sun
Toward it
We will run
Give me
Some hope
A life

With a Calliope (1)

(1)
In Greek mythology, Calliope (pron.: /kəˈlaɪ.əpiː/ kə-LY-ə-pee; Ancient Greek: Καλλιόπη Kalliopē “beautiful-voiced”) was the muse of epic poetry,[1]daughter of Zeus and Mnemosyne, and is believed to be Homer’s muse, the inspiration for the Odyssey and the Iliad.[2]
