The Walking Man is a bilingual French/English book, a collection of my poems and my own composition of spiritual songs. Certainly, it’s about poetry in general, with spiritual, uplifting and inspirational, love and other themes, that reflect man’s life as he walks in this world seeking the things he need, beautifully written in different poetic forms and some poems are well-expressed in my very own invention – the “mixed rhyme”, such examples of this poetic form are the “Text Me A Poem” and “Secret Of A Mango Tree”. There are haiku and senryu poems, as well. And also, I included some of my favorite bible verses; and most certainly, my own experiences in life are also reflected in this book.
A Holy Kiss
A blessed greeting, intended, for all
How sweet it is, for, it comes from my soul Of my acceptance, of you, depart not, from my call Let not your ignorance, of me, betray your own soul Your earthly knowledge, depend not, lest you fall
Kiss me in spirit, as I greet you, with a holy kiss Inspire…and live in my righteousness, my body Soul for soul, welcome me, with a holy kiss So that you regain true life, being inside, my body
A Gun And A Rose
Gun is a gun and rose is a rose The first is to kill, the other is to scent If I must pick one, I’ll choose the latter For I can easily give it to my lover
Toi, flamme des vins exotiques Magique des terres divines Parfum du sang et seule pour mon coeur
