Votre Ombre


Il n'y a rien mieux que d'être dans ma peau
sous les étoiles - livre Wuthering Heights (ou 1Q84)
attend pour vous, venir à la maison

pensant à vous
votre ombre tombant
sur ma peau

Bientôt, l'hiver va s'arrêter à ma fenêtre. Et notre foyer sera enflammé.

There is surely nothing better than being comfortable
under the stars, with Wuthering Heights (or 1Q84)
in my hands - thinking of you

And your shadow
Falling upon my tingling skin
chilled by winter night

Soon, winter will stop at my window. And our hearth will be enflamed.

  10. Hi Ninot, hope you're enjoying your blogging break. Glad to see you're still posting your French poems. Lovely scene you created here ... winter night curled up with a good book, a bit of mystery and shadows ... Spring, love on its way. This is wonderful! :)

    1. Thanks Loredana. Yes, I am still on a blogging break but trying to keep up with snippets of French poetry. I am enjoying the chance and novelty of just visiting favorite poets for the fun of it.

      It is a busy time - work, writing and giving talks on Malay legends and folklores. But I need to invest this time.
