Mots errant / Wandering words

“Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves.”   Henry David Thoreau

 

“Not all those who wander are lost.”   – J.R.R. Tolkien

 

“Wandering re-establishes the original harmony which once existed between man and the universe.”   – Anatole France

 

 

Mots errant / Wandering words

 

I love taking words

For a walk

Seeing where they

Will go and even better

Where they will take me

 

A simple phrase or word

Like a launching pad

Recycled by me or

Truth be told

Merely taking me along

 

Les mots – soyez résilient

Creating both map and path

Like a child’s puzzle

C’est moi – connecter les points

To get lost – is to find oneself

Bisous,

Léa

wander

behind

la porte

lies the

greatest of all

treasures

POSSIBILITY

will you cross the threshold?

mais oui!

vast risks – challenges

wondrous and arduous

journey

roads unpaved

unmarked

proceed in darkness

stumbling frequently

falling

falling

leave any maps

at the door

they only mark

the route of others

close your eyes

inhale deeply

feel your way

moss on a cool

rough stone

crunching of fallen leaves

beneath your feet

stillness of the air

the sounds

animal? human?

perhaps falling rain?

the roar of thunder,

flash of lightning?

or whoosh of the cascade?

sunlight peeks through

illuminating gems

les fleurs

smooth stones

perhaps a fallen tree-

opportunity

a chance to contemplate

absorb

inhale deeply

allow its rhythm

to guide you on

become one with

your surroundings

stay in each moment

drink deeply

let the sensations wash over you

bisous,

léa

The tourists

Have arrived

Les cafés with shade

Draw the largest crowd

Salade Garesh

Poulet au curry

Mango – yaourt (yogurt)

Cucumber sauce

Trois tables

Occupied by the

French

Close by

English and

Dutch

Tongues flutter

Le menu ten euros

Tarte sallée

Ou  Salade Garesh

Verre de vin

You finally comprehend

A shorter lunch

Would be barbaric
