This is my contribution to Frank Jansen’s “Dutch goes the Photo,” challenge.
The theme for this week is tranquil, which is perfect for this time of year.
I spent this past Sunday taking pictures of the roses in my garden and editing them for a book of poetry that I am working on. A rose for every poem.
Time passes tranquil
Being with hues red and gold
Heart blossoms unfold
My attempt in French
Temps passe tranquillement
Etre avec rouge et or
Fleurs coeur devoilent
Edit – Nicole Pottier helped my poem in French. I was trying to stay within the syllables of a haiku but it didn’t seem to work.
Here is Nicole’s version! Merci beaucoup Nicole!
le temps passe tranquillement
dans des nuances rouge et or
le coeur des fleurs se dévoile
