The old attic was emptied
a few weeks ago 
when nobody was present
it yielded
a harvest of sweet broken objects
that had been useless 
for quite a long time
sanctified by time 
and blessed by dust

the only way to indulge 
in a childish dream now
will be in past memories

through the open window
the world came in all of a sudden
making loss too visible

and the light that is shed 
on  the deserted attic
has lost its charm
and the magic power it had
to turn anything 
into some extraordinary treasure

Claude Lopez-Ginisty
