They came unnoticed

They came unnoticed
between night and day
clad in clouds and mist
and their presence hushed down
by the tender whisper
of the rain on the pond

nobody saw them
except a young child in his slumber
who pointed at them and smiled
a smile of hope and melody

when a lightning flashed in the air
half of their figures appeared
silver bodies that passed by
on the edge of a slippery path

you sensed their presence
but like a hound dog
you stopped moving at once
meaning your soul to abide
by the mystery of their visitation
and the testimony of their frailty

next you fell asleep
and when you woke up
rainbows were on sale

Claude Lopez-Ginisty
