changement de saison

“In the depth of winter, I learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.”  

–       Albert Camus


changement de saison

colours bleed

from my pallet

mimic the leaves

of the vineyards

sunlight creeps into

my window

seconds later

each morning

you can feel it

in the air

pas froid

yet not as it was

le plage


tourists tenuously grasp

vacations shimmering moments

memories and souvenirs

postcards, sunburns

fondu comme nos


dans le sable

    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

  4. 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 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.
