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.

While like many Northerners, the eloquence of my husband is in his silence, the most beautiful sound I know is his laugh. I love making him laugh. It must be said that to live with me, it takes a lot of humor because it is difficult for me to take myself seriously. And he has a good sense of humor, thank you God!

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