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

pulsating

soaring skinny houses crisscrossed

and slanted

smashed together

on purpose

  

climb atop the steep knoll

view le vieux port

the English Channel and the Seine

all at one time

straddling it

the bridge to tomorrow

Normandie’s silver harp

 

fruits de mer

and black muscles

crack

balls of apple glace

swimming in Calvados

tarte tatin

turned upside down

  

seafaring chapels eager to float

anchors and flowering croix

glorious cows

startling tongues

longing to plant kisses

on their noses

beyond the fence

  

artists past and present

remember to paint

vibrant sizzles

hankering for shorts

as the bridge went up

and the sailboats

went under
