Love Under the Umbrella


L'amour sous le parapluie
is a strange thing
fresh, fragile
my fingers are ice
your lips are fire

L'amour sous le parapluie
idles with Chopin
on mirror streets
dances on stiletto heels
over borrowed dreams

I sink into you, my darling
you rush into me
while the sombre rain shelters,
fires
l'amour sous le parapluie

It definitely has a nice music attached to it. I'm not a fan of love poems, but you always surprise me (in a positive way) with yours.

re: chicken intestines->please refer to my post. I understand that people coming from different cultures have different ideas about the edibility of certain body parts (of an animal). I've heard that some Americans, if not most?, do not eat the chicken head for example.

So beautiful, Vesper - full of lyrical exquisiteness. And so evocative. Brilliantly done.

So much my thing, Vesper.

I found myself thrilling to these hot and cold words, while hearing the mournful rain above my head. What electricity!

Yeah...wow. :)
