Les vraies rivières se montrent en miroir
le ciel interdit de mauvais nuages
pas des mots justes en présence du prétexte
Etonnant comme l’amour qui porte à croire…
Of this window, two things, knowing they are one:
your breath on icy glass, bright spirits as they pass.
“Of This Window”

To Live in Such a Way
To live in such a way as not to break this sweet silence.
Cherub on a limb. Fluffy wren.
If you ask her where she’s been, she will sing again.
Make that your name, if you must have one.
If you must have anything, have love.
The innocence of sense divine.
The sacred sense of innocence.
The incense of your time.
Up into the heavens. See us rise.
