“Les Sentiers de Vague-Nord VI: La Djinn” by Myriam Descendres

an Ekphrastic poem in collaboration with Lilly o’Wisp

(La Djinn)

Je n'ai rien à n'en dire
Sur la mante d'un âtre éteint
sans flamme
ni l'ombre, ni la lumière
ne se caresses enfin
Et que dirait la Djinn?
Qu'en dirait-elle donc?
Une larme coule, chaude et fine
Petite bille de verre ronde

NOW, in English…

(The Djinn)

There is nothing to say
Nothing to tell

On a burnt hearth
Cinder tamed
Light and shadow
All the same
What would've said the Djinn?
What could she even say?
A droplet of thin glass
Tears of smoky grey

      Thank you so much Joni, I really appreciate your kindness and your words. That series is special for me and for Wisp, because it was so long ago she did that kind of work of art (Zentangle or Line Arts) she had done it in university when we met each others. And to see her now drawing again is a blessing to me. I am so grateful to inspire her art with this wonderful mystical series. We will have the Sirens and the dragons too somewhere down the road. (In a month or two is my guess).

      I thank you so much for me and on her behalf. May you have a wonderful week mlle Joni.
      Hugs and love
