Automne resplendissant
ceint au sein de la vallée
le parfum que nul ne peut arrêter
envoie toute son essence au sage
Dans un silence profond
se trouve le refrain des ketakis
refrain qui ne lui pavient pas
sourd demeure -t-il aux chansons de cukkus.
Elle observe…
regard fixe et discret
sa frèle passion
ne peut point être rejetée
elle ne sera jamais une existence sans but
Son arc-en-ciel
vient du soleil qui reste indifférent
elle s’épanouit
ne laissant aucun calme traverser son chemin
avec son printemps original
elle contrôle le remue-ménage dans la brousse….
Le sage s’éffondre
frappé par l’éclaire dans le ciel d’automne.
