Embroideries like mirrors

Wednesday June 13th, 2018

Une toile tiraillée,

A torn cloth,

Fermement encadrée,

Firmly framed,

Un canevas blanc,

A white canvas,

Parfois transparent,

Sometimes transparent,

 

Sur lequel coulent mes doutes et s’encrent mes rêves.

On which my doubts flow and my dreams are inked.

Des rêves grands,

Great dreams,

Des rêves passionnants,

Exciting dreams,

Des rêves sains,

Healthy dreams,

Des rêves incertains.

Uncertain dreams.

De haut en bas,

From top to bottom,

D’en deçà à l’au-delà,

From below to beyond,

L’aiguille plonge, se noie sous la surface,

The needle dives, drowns beneath the surface,

Reprend son souffle et navigue, tenace.

Catches its breath and sails, tenacious.

Des textures et des couleurs composées

Textures and colors composed

Dans un esprit de liberté.

In a spirit of freedom.

La liberté d’imaginer

The freedom to imagine

Ce qu’il plait d’y regarder.

What you like to see.

Un recto comme un tableau,

A front as a painting,

Un verso plein de chaos,

A back full of chaos,

Une vie en miniature,

A life in miniature,

Une métaphore suspendue.

A suspended metaphor.
