My pen & paper… my Aeneas

After a long absence I take you between my thumb & index
Hoping to continue an interrupted alliance.
In doubtful moments you call, I long…

Words, shapes, phrases, impressions, perceptions, all dance
To my attention but life hollers, its pulse goes on beating,
Its stream resumes its course then, I forget…

I adapt… Until your next signal.

I remember the bond, the relief, sincerity & trust…
Treating you as a living might be ridiculed, to me you are
Most alive, available around the world,

Pristine & unwrinkled you absorb my unpublished, my Arcanum. (1)
Your condition, that I come along provided with ink & scratch
The cavities of my brain.

I will always be thirsty for more so, after a long or short lapse
Count me among your unwavering, your fidus Achates. (2)
My pen & paper, my Aeneas. (3)

P.S This poem was written far back in 1991 then I adjusted it in 2013 & today I readjusted it again!
hope you’ll like it 🙂

(1) Arcanum

A deep secret, a mystery

(2) Fidus Achates

A faithful friend or companion

(3) Aeneas

The Trojan hero of Virgil’s epic poem, the Aeneid, and son of Anchises and Aphrodite. He escaped the sack of Troy and wandered for seven years before settling in Italy.

The coin you dropped in the basket of hope

This poem is to honor my younger sister’s noble, kind, constant presence in good and trying times.

Can I begin to scrape the surface
Will you ever know, realize the
Depth of your random acts?

I laud your selflessness the way
You foster the wounded heart lest
They disappear to the winds, unafraid
Of requital magnanimous to supremacy…

Weak words for strong disposition
I tried to pare but would need
To write a Te Deum to delineate
The making of thee

Stand tall, head high every
Moment of the day’s tide
Thank you will be furrowed in your
Bravery well after this tribulation

Time will not go by without a praise
And affection where lies the maxim
For humanity the ultimate paradigm
Thy art the reason for our creation

Please accept and welcome this humble
Verse as a token, as the treasured coin
You dropped in the basket of hope…

My twin sister Dec. 2011 English poem with its French original text

Forever the lives of our two families intermingle.
In my mind there is no “I, You, They” We are one.
Although we have chosen different paths, my heart inhabits boundless love for all of us.
In my universe, where love primes, there is no judgment. There are images of two parallel lives, with
souls merging, while remaining one hundred percent faithful to one’s own personality.
I am grateful to have experienced it so far.

Unique friendship
Twin sister
The space of a day
A breath away

I conjugated
The verb “love“
All individuals
Interweaving
Fashioning a Madonna

The movie of our lives
Scrolls ad infinitum
In my restless mind
Imbibed with love

Since always
My heart belongs to you
Your life, I hold
In the palm of my hand

Up in my tower
In the trough of my universe
I sing for you verses
Protecting you with all my being

You gave
Without counting
You have nourished
Blessed my life

My soul begged
Parched
You insufflate
To resuscitate it

Generous and tender
Passionate and devoted
The well deserved title
Comes to you henceforth

You are my angel
You are my angle
You are such,

My twin sister!

Ma soeur jumelle
——————-

Unique amitié
Soeur jumelle
Par l’espace d’un jour
A l’écart d’un souffle

J’ai conjugué
Le verbe “aimer”
Toutes les personnes
S’entremeler
Façonnant une Madone

Le film de nos vies
Défile à l’infini
Dans mon esprit agité
D’amour imbiber

Depuis toujours
Mon cœur t’appartient
Ta vie je la tiens
Dans la paume de ma main

En haut dans ma tour
Aux creux de mon univers
Je te chante des vers
Te protégeant de tout mon être

Tu m’as donnée
Sans compter
Tu m’as nourrie
Béni ma vie

Mon âme supplié
Comme une assoiffée
Tu as insufflé
Pour la ressusciter

Généreuse et tendre
Passionnée et dévouée
Le titre bien mérité
Te viens désormais

Tu es mon ange
Tu es mon angle
Tu es telle,

Ma sœur jumelle !
