il est infrequent que los angeles parole parle /
Aram arim ram rama Ararat /

mains qui cousent des oreillers aux étoiles qui saignent sur les cartes /
et l’impression de toucher des éclats de têtes et de corps dans les nuages qui les côtoient
Né en 1930 en Syrie dans une famille paysanne, naturalisé libanais, Ali Ahmad Saïd Esber prend très tôt le nom d’Adonis pour devenir le plus marquant et le plus varié des poètes arabes de notre temps. Poète méditatif, il est l’homme de toutes les migrations, ouvert aux courants qui se croisent, se combattent et paraissent irréconciliables. Le poème est, pour Adonis, le lieu même où l. a. pensée se forme, se déforme et se divise en paraboles.
