***

I like long takes – one movement nonstop,

especially when watching sunsets –

the orange lava orchestrates the blue:

one minute – yellow décolletés, next – purple fur coats…

I like to stop and long smell

the roses in neighbors’ gardens,

I spend the mornings with the church bells –

each has its own voice and colour.

I like long dune walks – climbing nonstop,

the evening skies are passing out

under a massive weight of gold –

the sun – in one long take – drips on my hair

every evening, year round.
