Poems and Paintings

Maxime Vigier

I have poems and paintings, usually I link a poem with a painting.

Here’s the poem that illustrates the painting I attached:


I just love the rain
It’s like an excuse to stay in

It throws you back in your space
Forces you out of the race

It stops time on the clocks
and washes up your thoughts

Gives you time to embrace
Some tea or hot coffee
And feel happy as an old lady…

Shit! it’s over!
Oh but I still hear the thunder…

And some whispers just after

yes, it’s over
Maybe I’ll go out
I hear children laughing all about

I feel sorry
But I need to catch up with some reality
Rain was just a piece of destiny

Saigon, Vietnam
