Rain in my heart

Versailles black and white



Versailles black and white
Storm clouds over Versailles. Stone urns in silhouette.

La pluie implacable pleure dans les rivières de regret,
Les flaques d’eau teintes en rouge avec mes rêves assassinés.
Mon cœur est seulement un galet,
Dans les profondeurs abandonnés

Relentless rain crying in rivers of regret
The puddles dyed red with my murdered dreams
My heart is but a pebble
In the abandoned depths

Prompt Words – pluie , rouge, implacable , rivière, regrets



 Thought I would have a go at a French poem based on the prompts for this weeks prompt from Jane Dougherty





    1. How very kind of you! I was happy with how the French turned out (and also the fact that my French friend only made 1 little correction!) Yay.


    1. Don’t you dare. I feel the same when I read your pieces. Yours always have a wonderful flow that seems effortless but yet is so well structured. We shall simply have to attempt to meet each others high poetical standards.


      1. Oh that sounds like work, TJ!! Let’s just do our best and enjoy each other’s “Brilliance” 🙂 I’m still reeling from the fact that you speak French, Japanese, write gorgeous English poetry, have the gift of humor that won’t quit…and the list goes on… 🙂

          1. I about fell out of my chair when I read this just before clocking out last night–you’re too funny to be legal!! I dare say I’d buy a ticket to hear your Elvis… 🙂
