À nonante encore

Jean-Claude Xuereb

Dans la banalité des jours
il savoure à l’instant
les tranches d’un fruit de soleil
parfum émerveillé d’enfance

Jean-Claude Xuereb, « À nonante encore », apulée, Éditions Zulma, 2021.

de l’instant


Had I been there
Looking across at the glacier
And wondering why it recedes
And does not advance,
I would surely have gone
To the little cafe on the wharf
And lunched on fresh halibut.
I would have been
Where I ought to have been,
In my mind, fishing deep waters.

N. Scott Momaday, « Juneau », apulée, Éditions Zulma, 2021.
