World Poetry Day 2021

The Underwater World

As I gently shut my eyes
I recall the day
The summery tropical afternoon
I spent snorkeling by the bay

The fresh turquoise water
Touches my face
And right underneath me
Unravels a captivating place

Shoals of vibrant fish
Swimming all around
In every possible color
Yellow, red, or brown

An underwater paradise
Formed by exotic coral reefs
Large living and breathing structures
Home to a plethora of beings

A world of unknown
I gaze to the ocean floor
An aesthetic scenery
A mystical world to explore

  2. Day after day

    ………………..Au fil des jours

    ———————————————————————————-

    When the moon is bright,
    It brings us the best of dreams,
    And we learn to fly.

    ………………..Quand la lune est claire,
    ………………..Nous faisons les plus beaux rêves
    ………………..Dans lesquels on vole.

    An old man, having
    The memory of a kiss :
    He has a treasure.

    ………………..Un vieillard, avec
    ………………..Le souvenir d’un baiser :
    ………………..Tel est son trésor.

    As we start learning,
    We are walking our first steps ;
    Not the easiest ones.

    ………………..Être un débutant,
    ………………..Accomplir les premiers pas
    ………………..Qui sont difficiles.

    Words may frighten us,
    Being older than we are ;
    We have to tame them.

    ………………..Les mots nous effraient,
    ………………..Qui sont plus anciens que nous ;
    ………………..Mais ils s’apprivoisent.

    Truth can be subtle ;
    It can say “I am not here”
    And nearly prove it.

    ========================

    ………………..Vérité subtile,
    ………………..Qui parfois dit « Je suis fausse »
    ………………..Et presque le prouve.

  3. Saania I read your poem and felt a bit jealous as I had not gone near the sea or ocean what to say enjoying underwater mystery full of life. You are lucky to enjoy and able to put a poem. My blessing.
