With a Translator

Make these images words;Speaking_at_SAMF_2008__Switzerland__Dr_Cachelin_translating.JPG

Allow syllables to flow

Through dialectic modification

Into ideas embedded in the mind

Where receptors claim attention

Numbed by an opiate past

That seems to have little bearing

On our understanding

As we tour virtual galleries

Viewing ancestral spirits

That hallucinate the dead

Prompting them to speak.


But instead your explanation

Crystallises Aeschi's clear dawn.


With appreciation to pharmacologist Dr Armand Cachelin, who translated at the SAMF, Switzerland weekend at Aeschi, helping all to grasp the theme as we explored the Portrait Gallery of Health and other aspects of health, history and faith.
