matin d’octobre – October morning…

l’univers de chacun de nous se résume au soleil, à la terre et aux visages proches… notre présent ne s’arrête aux dernières fleurs de lavande, mais il restera suspendu à l’espoir de notre avenir… la vie ressemble à une roue du temps qui tourne, s’arrête et nous ramène vers notre “été indien” parsemé de fleurs maltaises veloutées… je viens de poser mon cœur sur le tien à l’abri de la pluie salée, je fredonne “octobre” et je compte les secondes éternelles où l’amour est impossible de cesser puisque nous nous aimons différemment… ❤ 🙂

Matin d’Octobre… – François Coppée

C’est l’heure exquise et matinale
Que rougit un soleil soudain.
A travers la brume automnale
Tombent les feuilles du jardin.
Leur chute est lente. On peut les suivre
Du regard en reconnaissant
Le chêne à sa feuille de cuivre,
L’érable à sa feuille de sang.
Les dernières, les plus rouillées,
Tombent des branches dépouillées,
Mais ce n’est pas l’hiver encore.
Une blonde lumière arrose
La nature, et, dans l’air tout rose,
On croirait qu’il neige de l’or…

the world of most of us is limited to sun, earth and the faces of our close ones… our present tense doesn’t stop with the latest lavender flowers, but it’ll stay suspended to the hope of our future… life is like a time wheel that turns, stops and takes us again into our ‘Indian summer’ scattered with Maltese velvety flowers… I’ve set my heart over yours, away from the salty rain, I hum Cabrel’s ‘October’ and I count the eternal seconds where love is impossible to leave off as we love each other differently… ❤ 🙂

October morning – François Coppée

It’s the exquisite morning time
when a sudden sun has blushed.
Through the autumn mist
the garden’s leaves fall apart.
Their downfall is slow. You can follow them,
gazing and recognizing the oak tree
by its copper leaf and the maple tree by its blood leaf.
The latest ones are the most rusty ones,
they drop off the bare branches,
but it’s not winter yet.
A fair light sprinkles the whole Nature,
you’d believe it snows gold across the pink air…

have a flowery October, guys! 🙂

  1. Your photographs of the Lantana and a succulent bloom were superb, Melanie!

  2. Your beautiful flowers, and beautiful writings, always bring a ray of love and happiness into my world, Melanie. You cannot leave your post without a smile on your face and a feeling of well being in your heart. Emu aka Ian

  3. Un mois d’octobre qui commence avec un soleil d’été pour notre plus grand plaisir. Les mots choisis et les photos sont superbes. Merci pour ce choix! Bises.

  4. Intelegem viata in acelasi fel: sarbatorim fiecare clipa! Sa ai o toamna cat mai frumoasa! Camelia

  5. Una mattina d’ottobre rallegrata da mille fiori colorati.

  6. Thank you for so many beautiful flowers.

  7. La soare, la pământ și la ființele apropiate, fie ele reale sau virtuale, fie ele oameni, animale sau plante… Numai bine, Melania! 🙂

  8. I love the fact that many of the flowers you captured are right here in my own yard! 🙂

  9. Happy October, Melanie ❤

  10. Cred că la tine luna octombrie este în carnaval deghizat în luna mai şi şi-a împodobit pălăria cu cele mai frumoase flori! Sau poate este de vină starea de graţie cu care ai revenit din Malta şi încă pluteşti visând la turcuoazul maltez! Oricum, frumos ales poemul şi excelentă metafora Lui Albert Camus “Toamna e a doua primvara unde fiecare frunza e o floare…” Aşa este! Voi merge acasă la munte săptămâna viitoare numai ca să văd cum “a înflorit” pădurea acum în octombrie!

    • iubesc toamna din copilarie, iar lunile septembrie+octombrie sunt marcante pentru mine/noi: fiu’ nostru e nascut în septembrie, fiica noastra pe 12 octombrie – ziua în care am aterizat la Paris-Orly în 1980, deci e dubla aniversare… Camus e un titan al literaturii franceze si universale, îl iubesc din liceu, ca si pe Tonio aka St-Exupéry… 🙂

      ma bucur ca ai scris “acasa la munte”, caci acolo mi te imaginez din 7/9… ❤ 🙂

      • Cu acelaşi gând ca şi tine am scris “acasă la munte”. Acolo ne-am văzut-plăcut şi acolo va fi întotdeauna “acasă” atunci când vorbesc cu tine. Imbrăţişări cu drag.

  11. Welcome to October! there is a poem that says:”fall is great, every leaf is a flower!”

    • 🙂 da, e vorba de celebra fraza a lu’ Camus:”L’automne est un deuxième printemps où chaque feuille est une fleur…” – “Toamna e a doua primvara unde fiecare frunza e o floare…”(Albert Camus)

  12. Superbe poème, servi à point par tes images… J’ai des souvenirs d’octobres qui ont la saveur des marrons grillés, les odeurs de feuilles pourrissantes qui donneront un humus royal, et de l’odeur, encore, de l’encre et du papier des cahiers neufs… La rentrée était alors porteuse de tant d’espérance… J’aime cette nostalgie là… Elle n’est pas triste, mais vibrante d’espoir. Amitiés, Mélanie.

  13. Matin d’octobre joliment coloré, merci pour ce joli billet. Bonne soirée.

  14. Bonne poursuite de cette première d’octobre, Mélanie, et bon mois tout entier!

  15. Melanie, This is a lovely way to start October. My favorite month! 🙂

  16. You too, Mélanie! Hard to believe how fast this year is moving. Enjoy the first day of this new month! ❤

    • thanx, LL = Lady Lorrie! ❤ TIME is relative, but we do move on and forward with it… 🙂 my very best and lots of inspiration, now and always! 🙂

  17. Melanie, this is so lovely.

  18. What lovely flowers to greet the first October morn. When October comes, I breathe a sigh of relief. Perhaps the heat is finally breaking. (No, the A/C is still running. 😦 ) But there is something about the beginning of each new month that is uplifting.

    • 🙂 glad you’ve liked my flowers… I love Fall in general and October, in particular… I lived in Houston, TX for 5 years and I’ve disliked the AC ever since, so I do sympathize with you… thanx for dropping by and have a splendid October! 🙂

      • How about living in Houston for over 20 years. 😦 Out in the Hill Country now which is a mite better.

        • I do get your point and I’m speechless… btw, our American son-in-law has chosen/decided to live here and he’s never missed Houston! I do recall the Hill Country and its nice bluebonnet(lupine) fields… 🙂
