“In the depth of winter, I learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.”
– Albert Camus
changement de saison
from my pallet
mimic the leaves
of the vineyards
sunlight creeps into
you can feel it
in the air
yet not as it was
tourists tenuously grasp
vacations shimmering moments
memories and souvenirs
fondu comme nos
dans le sable

Beautiful & spare~
Cindy, thank you! I am glad you liked it.
love the colors bleeding from the pallet – mimicking the leaves…there’s so much beauty in the change of season…you captured the autumn light well
A beautiful capture of autumn, it felt like I was seeing the change happen in front of me. Wonderful poetry Lea, it’s always a pleasure reading your work 🙂 x
Thank you Becka. There are things I enjoy about the season but, honestly, I am a summer person and will miss it and the sunshine on my back, the swimming and most of all days in the sea! 🙂 x
This new job of yours is exciting! I shall be watching your journey with interest!
Ah I know what you mean, I will miss the long summer days too. . . thanks Lea, life is exciting at the moment! 🙂 x
Thanks Becka! Yes, I do love the summer! 🙂 x
Gorgeous poem about Season’s change. I love the last three lines (I am re-learning my french!) However impermanent the holidays and the footprints in the sand the memories can always be rhere.
Brilliant quote as always 🙂
Oh Christine, you are so sweet. Perhaps you will take a look at the next collection of my work. I am hoping to have the book out before the end of the year. Each poem will be in both French and English. If I ever get it all translated… 🙂
You do know my quote addiction… 🙂
I definitely would love to look at your next collection of work!!
And keep feeding the quote addiction! I often refer fo them 🙂
It is terrible, I can’t have just one (quote that is)! 🙂
There will be a few poems in this my third collection that have been on the post. The others will be new.
One quote is too many – 100 aren’t enough!! Xxx
I love this and I’m feeling that change in the air as the sunburns and memories fade away. Love the mixture of French and English as always.
Merci beaucoup Sheila! It is hard to believe that just a week ago today, I was swimming at Port la Nouvelle…
Yes it is! And nice to dream about all through winter too.
Mais oui! Unfortunately, even in my dreams my imagination is not good enough to recreate that scorching sun or the way the water cradles you and rocks you… 😦
