Secret, poem by Fabrice Poussin

It can never be told, written, heard

tending to a light brush of a fearful sense

swirling in an invisible waltz of gentle stars.

A soft curve is felt in a dimension private

a smile strives to find a moment’s rest

upon the firm of warm crimson fibers.

It is a single aim to fill an eternity of pleas

a wish to slide on the cozy slopes of a dream

where hard rains are a constant blessing.

Calling infinite particles to answer the prayer

pull the pieces of a throbbing puzzle together

melting within the portrait of the newborn muse.

A poet long ago created the fantastic encounter

so brief its memory carried the universe along

and today I swim in the torrents of the creature.
