It floats


on the wings

of tongues
 
and

dives off

the stanza of poem and promise.


les dames d'abord


What can summon its descent

from the heavens? 



les dames d'abord


It will fall as letters 

then as sentences on a page

of 

brown ground 

troubled with blindness.

 Then



will wrap its nakedness


  in flesh

of

black, white, and brown shapes

and we will see how

a citizen

of

the otherworldly

can touch feet to earth



les dames d'abord


put face, her face

on

the intangible

and walk page after page

through eternity.

 
les dames d'abord

Oh Anita, so like you...the prose, beauty and music combined. Guess you're getting ready for the new school year. Have a good one.

Kim said...

I have missed your words Anita, but I love your photos on Instagram! Happy summer my friend!

Stephanie said...

I love what Donna said about this post being so like you....I agree, sweet friend. How I love to visit you, dear Anita. Your words are a soothing balm to my soul and your romantic images bless the heart.

Thank you for being beautiful. Hugs to you!

Simply LKJ said...

Agree, miss your words and the music. Praying the start to the new school year is a good one. My oldest reported for pre-planning today. Excited to be at a new school.

PlantPostings said...

Summer is too short--no matter how you look at it. Personally, I'm not thinking about it being almost over because August and September (and October) are always so beautiful, and my work and schedule don't change much with the seasons. Enjoy each day! Thanks for your beautiful posts!

Red Rose Alley said...

Oh, those roses - they stole my heart! They are three different shades of pink! Those slippers are darling, my friend. And I love this charming building. I see you have a picture of Carmel on here today. I have been wanting to go there so much, especially after seeing your dreamy pictures.

I love your wonderful quote. We will all linger on after we are gone into the hearts of our loved ones and their loved ones after them. We will be with them, in spirit.

Have a lovely evening, sweet sister.

As I rummage quickly through mail, deleting in a frenzy so I can finally lay my head down to rest, I see your invitation; always welcome, always promising calm and release. I circle it like an old friend circles it's rug before resting at your feet, knowing that it's a place of love, comfort and peace. Thank you yet again.

Tristan Robin Blakeman said...

Dear Anita,
Seeing your announcement of a new blog post in my inbox always brings a light to my eyes and the knowledge that I'm going to be enriched and rewarded for one little click with a cloud of visual and textual splendor.
Today is no different.
I love your words - they are both inspirational and revelatory ... and the photos, well, you simply post some of the loveliest photos in Bloglandia.
I'm sure you'll never have any idea who much I treasure our friendship - and wish that I were able to live up to my "artistic" end of the friendship!
Fondly,
Tristan

Jeri Landers said...

I just don't know how you do it... but then, I am not a poet. I can only appreciate... and indeed I do. The music, it takes me back to 6 , 7 years old. My mother played a Chopin album constantly on her "record Player". geeeez, remember those? That very song would fill the house with beautiful sound.

"Create Beauty" said...

Beautiful words and lovely images and music combine into something glorious!!!!!

I love how your heart expresses itself with beauty...... and then shares it.

Mara Alverson said...

Is "les dames d'abord" the name of a photography business or what? I know that it means "Ladies first", but don't know what it signifies in this context. Love your pieces. Very inspiring.

This is the way I'd like to begin each day...lovely poetic words coupled with beautiful music. Thank you. Your photography is wonderful...those roses, oh my.

Hugs today!

Martina said...

Dearest Anita, wow, such a beautiful post! I can see you have worked on your poetry skills - and the combination of words and images works in wonderful ways. Am seeing this at the end of the day - quite a strenuous one - and it feels so gentle and soothing,
Glad you haven't given up blogging completely - it does help to get back on track sometimes, plus the feedback you get is wonderful. Will sure be back and look at this again! Hugs for a lovely evening!

It is such a comfort to know some things will not change when you are feeling a kind of lost , as I feel lately .
It is a new kind of lost . Lost in my own life because I was so used to adjusting and now I have to be in control myself . NO adjusting needed anymore . Have a happy August dearest .❤️

There is such heart's ease in your words, your pictures, and the Chopin nocturne. Thank you for this lovely time here. I'll be considering what more "can summon its descent from heaven," Anita.

Row homes and Cobblestones said...

Dear sweet Anita,
What a post! Four beautiful photographs... all taken by you and tell a beautiful spiritual story through your inspirational poetry. Really enjoyed this post. Guess what? My month is soon over and I will post in a day or so. Last Sunday beams were installed and 100+ years look beautiful. Lots of photos of all our renovation progress and a share. I've missed everyone for the past month.
Schools about to start for you again and I can imagine you and Reuben are savoring the last days before returning back to work. Enjoy the time and your Summertime. Its been very hot in Philadelphia lately, loving the central air!
XOXO,
Vera

Jeanne said...

So special!! Thanks for sharing that.

Red Rose Alley said...

Beautiful words and photos, Anita! Thank you for sharing your story of your studies and travels in France. What an experience to always be remembered! And I think it's experiences like these that help mold us and change us for the better. We did not make it to Eze or St. Paul de Vence this time, but Nel's husband bravely rented a car and drove us down the French Riviera! We stopped in Cannes and Antibes. I will be back to visit though. France is too beautiful not to!

Troebadoer said...

Chère Anita,

Tu nous laisses participer à ta vie pleine d'extase, de beauté éternelle dans tes images, tes paroles.
Je te souhaite le bonheur parfait.


Elle caresse les touches
de l'été qui dort,
lourdement,
comme un lion d'or au repos,
une coupole de flammes
bleues claires,
et des collines, des collines
vertes comme le jade...

La beauté fleurissante de cette dame
les yeux plein d'étoiles,
de papillons, de fleurs de neige,
de rêves éthérés,
elle rie, elle chante,
des airs plein d'un charme doux...

Style Diary Of A Fashion Fanatic said...

Beautiful new post dear Anita!!!!
Can you believe August is off & running???
I just bought some cool Prada boots that are a plum colored suede with a light pink toe cap area, and a panel of snakeskin going down the front of the boots. They are knee length boots; I love the color paneling.
Autumn is my favorite time of year!!!!!
It's still hot here but fall is around the corner!!!!
Hope you had a wonderful day!!!!

Hi Anita I have to admit that I don't know very much about poetry but I think your talking about words - beautiful words that will stand for eternity. I think it is beautiful how you say it and then remind us again with these lovely images. How inspiring your post is.

Madelief said...

Another beautiful post Anita! The music and your words match beautifully. You made some beautiful photographs to accompany it too!

Hope you are enjoying your summer? I started work again last week, but try to hold on to the 'holiday feel' as long as possible. So far I am managing :-). It's good to be back on the internet though enjoying all those beautiful posts, like yours, and photo's of far away holiday destinations. Yours make me want to Carmel one day :-)

Have a lovely week!

Martina said...

Happy monday dearest Anita! Have been thinking of you over the weekend, but my boys were so busy on my mac that i couldn't get to it ;) I believe what you wrote about your poetry. I think it is just as difficult as painting ... yet the hardships must be hidden to make art appear light and playful, like the dance of a ballerina! Hope you capture more of augusts beauty with photography and words and send you hugs for a great week!

LeeAnn at Mrs Black's said...

Lovely to see you back, if only for a magical moment. The music is so perfect for this luscious post. I am so happy too that you captured one of Lainey's shimmering Fishes for your own - I so love her work. Much love to you from me and Mrs Black. x

Oh Anita, what a joy to hear from you........THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! So much love in your words - you touch my heart with this gift! Yesterday we have been at this Bavarian lake where I took my pictures...........love to swim in the fresh water, the mountains near, the church bells ringing.........it´s really lovely there! At the moment it is very, very hot in Bavaria and very try - so it is a great joy to have such a lake near! Have a wonderful week, my dear friend,

with love and hugs, Jade

Anita, Good Morning! Thank you for visiting me:) You are so chic and I love your sense of style. I too spend most of my time in shorts and a tee (or little dress:) during the summer months. Enjoy your weekend and the last bit of freedom before you start back to school. xxL

Martina said...

Hello dearest Anita, and happy weekend to you! I'm so sorry i haven't come sooner to answer your most lovely comment, but we're in a process of moving office and all is a bit upside down ;) Glad you like my yellow paintings! Last week, some clients were here, and 2 of them want to buy the cat .... maybe i try to paint it again - let's see! I hurt my little toe some days ago and can only walk very slowlxy at the moment - so glad tom. is a sunday! Much love to you!

Kidslife said...

Happy sunday Anita! Just read your comment - thank you so much for coming over for a little visit. Yes, summer already draws to a close now, but it's still here for us to enjoy. The freedom to walk in sandals and just a little dress, the warm evenings and bright mornings ... So happy you had a great time. I did, too, with our family trip and a lot of time for painting. Colour, for me, is a living energy. But i also love the whites and greys and quiet shades that you adore ... because color needs contrast to shine. Sometimes, you know, a vibrant color can open up rooms, instaed of cluttering them ... that's what i'm working on ;) Cheers to you and all the ebauty you create dear one! Till soon!

Jeri Landers said...

Anita, Such a sad story about your little wren this morning, I can relate to it. In answer to your ? Do donkeys bite? Well, mine don't because they have excellent manners. They do bite each other in a playful way but are very sweet and gentle with me. All of my animals are quite tame and docile...and did I mention lovable?

Hello my dear Anita, so nice to see you've looked at my blues. It's such a magical color and i still remember that beautiful ocean painting you've got. Yes, the days are getting shorter and we've got to adjust. But since we had a really hot summer, i don't mind so much. Are you ready for the new schoolyear? I hope you' re having a smooth and gentle week!
