Painting and more

Yesterday I went to a contest called Plumes et Pinceaux.  In addition to several art categories, there was one for writing.  This hollyhock inspired me.

 

La Rose Trémière

En passant la riche couleur

          de tes fleurs

          attire mon regard

Rouge soutenue, presque noir

Au bord du trottoir.

Je plonge, je rêve,

          le désire d’avoir

          m’effleure l’esprit.

Peu importe ta branche cassée,

          jaunie,

Tu ne demande pas beaucoup de place

          ni terre fertile,

Tu resplendis tout simplement

          Pour la joie du passant.

 

It was risky for me to write in French unarmed so to speak, no computer, no dictionary, but when I typed it up last night WORD only found two errors. That does not mean there aren’t more.

 

And my painting:
