Quand la nuit voit le jour (A la cime des mots) (French by Marie-Josée Christien PDF

By Marie-Josée Christien

A tout âge, le monde mystérieux de los angeles nuit fascine et pourtant, parce qu’il demeure en grande partie inconnu, il peut susciter appréhension et peur. l. a. poésie de Marie-Josée Christien permet d’en explorer tous les features et de répondre à certaines interrogations. N’oublions pas que le ciel nocturne a été de tous temps une resource de connaissance.

Regarde l. a. nuit invite chaque enfant à comprendre et à apprivoiser los angeles nuit, à se réconcilier avec elle pour grandir et aller confiant vers l’avenir, en prenant sereinement position dans le cycle de l. a. vie, rythmée par l’alternance du jour et de los angeles nuit.Jour et nuit sont en effet deux contraires indissociables et complémentaires. Distincts, ils n’en font cependant qu’un. Le cycle biologique de tous les êtres vivants dépend de l’alternance du jour et de los angeles nuit qui règle notre horloge biologique interne sur le rythme circadien de 24 heures. L’énergie lumineuse entraîne l. a. photosynthèse chez les végétaux et l’activité des animaux diurnes. L’horloge de notre sommeil et de nos repas, notre activité intellectuelle qui augmente le jour parallèlement à los angeles température du corps, dépendent de ce rythme. Repos nécessaire et bienfaisant des corps et des esprits, temps suspendu loin de l’agitation du quotidien, los angeles nuit permet le tête à tête fundamental avec soi-même.

Que chaque lecteur, petit ou grand, ouvre les yeux vers les étoiles et enrichisse sa nuit des mots du poème.
