My Image

Poem inspired by Maxette

This name, rare, evokes light and subtle fragrance
Found only on these distant islands,
A name full of poetry, you are born with.
Your bursts of laughter, your vibrating sound, light up our ordinary
With all the specific Caribbean gaiety
And this inherent heat you radiate
To the delight of your friends who gather
Around you for an always successful party.
This joie de vivre that you offer as a gift
Remain deep in my memories
And will overcome all obstacles
I meet on my way to the future.

Before you argue with someone you love very much, ask yourself how you will feel if that person dies the day after. I guarantee you that if you have a conscience, you will realize that no matter what or why you are arguing for, it will go over and it is not so important.

Now is in the joy of life, that joy that hasn't any contrary.
