No. 295: Après-midi à Honfleur
Un après-midi à Honfleur as noted by Button and Maman…
water, sun, and sails
kaleidoscopes of color glide by
soaring skinny houses crisscrossed
climb atop the steep knoll
view le vieux port
the English Channel and the Seine
all at one time
the bridge to tomorrow
Normandie’s silver harp
fruits de mer
and black muscles
balls of apple glace
swimming in Calvados
turned upside down
seafaring chapels eager to float
anchors and flowering croix
longing to plant kisses
on their noses
beyond the fence
artists past and present
remember to paint
hankering for shorts
as the bridge went up
and the sailboats

Love your poetry! It adds feeling and depth to the wonderful photos. Well done! 🙂
Well thank you. It is so very kind of you to say so. I haven’t written poetry for years, but my daughter and I were inspired. 🙂
Amazing! I love seeing your photos. I’m living vicariously, I guess :0)
Honfleur is a très cool town. I’m glad you like the pictures.
Lovely poetry and photos!
Thanks Sarah…just a bit of maman-fille creativity. x

Merci bien…just having fun with ma fille. 🙂
I love seeing my home-region through your eye. It reminds me how much I undervalue it …
Oh, j’adore beaucoup your part of France. 🙂 It is easy to take things for granted when you live there.
very very nice words 🙂 … Button is a person, oui? and you are Maman?
