Sleep enveloped me like a chrysalis.
The very next moment,
I transformed into a butterfly.
The blue-green of my eyes has spread over my wings.
It has fulfilled your dreams.
As light as the air.
I let myself be carried away by the wind.
No longer immune to the weather.
For a moment in time,
I was flying.
Flying so high that nothing could reach me.
Not one look, not one word … I was free.
It fulfilled my dreams.
Shortly afterwards, the butterfly landed.
Up there, way up there on the crest of the mountain.
The beating of its wings has ceased.
The blue-green has reverted to the iris of its eyes.
It has observed.
The moment after,
I woke up.
Silence enveloped me like a chrysalis.
A cocoon of tranquillity … far from uncertainty.
I took my paper and pencil.
I wrote you a few words.

My first pleasure is to write…
The second one is that you read my work and that you get as much pleasure as I do…
Then we could say that it’s a victory!
