I’m lingering on possibilities of holiday destinations now – I so want a holiday! – and I was thinking of Provence, Corey Amaro’s current hometown. The pictures of her daily life always make me think of her life as one, wistful romance.
A taste of Provence:
Lipstick on an afternoon aperitif glass,
Black chalk, board scrawled menu:
Aubergine, d’ail, courgette, poivron rouge…
Polka dotted cloth,
A golden glazed pot with herbs.
Strong hints of lavender,
Rough stones made smooth with wear,
Wisteria begging to bloom,
Bench waiting for conversation.
Blue shutters with a street lantern.
Not opened, not closed might mean one or two things…
Someone is taking a nap,
or keeping cool from the sun.
I want to be the girl that raises chicks with her boyfriend every Easter.
