Provençal Triptych: Une Pause Française

How about a little pause française in your day? Here’s a poem by David Wolf, my husband (also known as Mr. Sportcoat). May it bring a little loveliness to this moment.


Provençal Triptych

baguette-shaped clouds

above the brûléed plain

dusted just now in lavender



after the rain shower:

pastis puddle

along the trail


a little late-afternoon wine at a café

after milling about

the ruins of a Roman villa

Sinatra’s “Summer Wind”

blows through…

glazing the moment

in honey
