A bed of petals


"Laisse-moi t'endormir
Une nuit boréale
Sur un lit de petales
Aux reflets de saphir
Laisse-moi me blottIr
Sur ta peau quatre étoiles
Dans ton corps cathédrale
Et ne plus revenir"

Francis Cabrel

If you'd like a rough translation: Let me sleep one night of aurora borealis, on a bed of petals shimmering saphire, Let me lie close to your 4 star skin, in your cathedral body, and never come back.

Thanks for the loveliness here, Shayla...Wishing you Happiest Valentine's weekend! May it be rosy with love & fun. Hubby & I tend to celebrate quietly too. And as it is soooo cold here, we're not venturing out--LOL! We'll make a special dinner, a little wine, a film...After a busy week time together is a great gift. :o) ((HUGS))

I really like your blog! Very interesting to read about art and the artistic process. I loved the link below to Red Currant Jelly - cool painting!

Have a wonderful Pink Saturday.

Tracy, I know what you mean about the cold. Painful! Sounds like a lovely evening. I adore those simple pleasures.


Hmmm... Gwen the translator was a good idea. Google's is good. Babel fish made no sence at all. I'll add it here:

Let me sleep one night of aurora borealis, on a bed of petals shimmering saphire, Let me lie close to your 4 star skin, in your cathedral body, and never come back.
