Like an island where nothing 
ever arrives, 
neither boat, nor word, nor a hug,
that's how I feel.
But the sun keeps shining
and everything can happen
when you imagine yourself
sailing to an imaginary East.
One day, maybe!
Everything can happen!
I know.
But I don't know why I keep asking
for sweet palm tree dates 
on a rainy and lonely night.
If I could just anticipate
the gesture
of a flower floating on the water...
