In that order

for Masato
honey-like winter dusk
a silver kite flies
the laughing child

miel d'un crepuscule d'hiver
un cerf-volant d'argent fait voler
l'enfant riant

Thank you Oxeye, it is also one of mine. How are you these days?

Thank you for this, Pierre. I really like the phonic sounds of the word "crepuscule" and now understand the French origin of the word.

It is a word I am more familiar with in the North of Scotland, where the days can be much shorter, and refers to that moment when the daylight is over and nightfall has not yet come.

It seems to say "yes" and "no" at the same - not unlike "self" and "no self" or even existence itself -
"everything" and "no thing" simultaneously.

Thank you, once again.
