words in a picture

A picture is a poem without words..

 so what else did I do
 while I paused from the end of the year rush

I added some greens...

 Tied bows and hung fragrance crystals

 re -arranged books,

 remembered the day I found this painting
 in a tiny little antique shop in Avignon

and looked for longer then just in passing...


I wonder where this could be?..
could it be the Loire passing under the bridge..
who fed the swans...?
the trimmed trees and hedge
 the tower, the turrets..
it all looks so familiar, 
of towns we pass through in France
a bit of all in one.

Dear Colette, what a beautiful little painting....remembering when we have made favorite acquisitions is part of the collecting process I think...perhaps the best part . Always happy to see a post, N.xo

Colette, pictures and the things we view with beauty are poetry without words.

Love the green air fern, adds a bit of what to look forward to over the holidays.
