G(Listen)

Glisten -- morning sun
Lights the soft blooms and
Twinkles in the pines.

Listen - is that a 
Mourning Dove's sad, soft cooing --
Pining for love lost?



Brave Miss Yves translates...
luis-lueur de l'aube
Eclairant les fleurs
brillant dans les pins

Ouïs:est-ce le
Chant de deuil d'une colombe
Pleurant son amour ?

Beautiful, Vicki! Our Crepe Myrtles are not yet in bloom. I always look forward to their showy presence! I love the shimmering beauty you've captured!

Thanks, folks -- I just loved the way the light did in those first two pics and the word'glisten' kept running through my head.

"Such a lovely word; now what shall I do with it?"

And then I saw the 'listen' embedded in it.

And even as I put the poem together, playing with the repetition of the words/homonyms, I thought, "Oh dear, how WILL Miss Yves deal with this?"

But I see she has. I shall have to get my French/English dictionary in order to appreciate what she's done.

Thank you so much, Miss Yves! I do enjoy our game.

Shimmering -- that's another great word!

I love the French translations, merci to your partner in rhyme! :-)

I tried to capture the morning light at the farmers market today.
