“The thing that is really hard, and really amazing, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself.” – Anna Quindlen
“To me, every hour of the day and night is an unspeakably perfect miracle.”
– Walt Whitman
“I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle and end.”
– Gilda Radner
Un jour parfait
And red wine
A frosty morning
The abundance of
Sourires et baisers
Dans mon environnement
Warm wooly hats and scarves
Un tasse de café
Warming icy hands
That simmering cauldron of soup
Which beckons me
As a day at the easel
Takes its toll
Mozart and moonlight
Un jour – bien utilisé

Gorgeous and sensual – the chocolate and red wine and soup!
As you well know, all are essentials in life!
Bonne année et bonne santé!
Oh Lea! Just absolutely gorgeous! What a wonderful visual image this created for me. Such a cosy, joyful, contented mood. love it.
Merci beaucoup Christine. I started with j’adore and took the pen for a walk across the page. I’m glad if you enjoyed it.
Your pen had a very good walk 😊
so you paint as well…? i didn’t know this… would be cool to see some of your artwork… i love dark chocolate and red wine as well…they bring an imperfect world so much closer to perfect…happy new year…smiles
You’ve already seen a cropped photo from one of my pieces. My muse, is the little gravatar on my blog. 🙂 No skill, no instruction but the images bleed across the canvas. I only paint for myself.
very cool… and i disagree on the no skill…smiles
Merci beaucoup! I have been sketching a follow-up with Autumn Leaves and more mature face… There is also a series that has been running amuck in my head. A direct result of the morphine when I had surgery. Ugly stuff!
Warm wooly hats and soup make me happy! xoxo
I lost myself completely in this Lea, like a perfect daydream. . .I love the “mozart and moonlight” line, such an enjoyable read 😀 x
gorgeous and excellent written poem, Lea. I do like how you combine the two languages in your writing. Super!
I will for sure be back later to read more !
Thank you Francina! I started reading French poets to help me learn the language. After awhile, the words started creeping in to my writing…
Welcome and I look forward to reading more of your work.
BTW, thank you for choosing to follow one of my blogs. I hope you will continue to enjoy the posts.
