An Old Fashion Love:

23 Mar

Grand-Père et Grand-Mère

Le soleil trouve son chemin à travers le ciel brisées,

comme la lune attend patiemment de l’autre côté.

À la fois l’amour de support qui est logé jamais à décider

si quelque chose est toujours mal.

Une tasse de thé et de pain grillé moutarde.

Une cravate de soie jaune et une robe rouge vif.

    *****************************************

Grand Father and Grand Mother

 The sun finds its way through broken skies

as the moon waits patiently on the other side.

Both, supporting love that’s housed never to decide

whether anything is ever wrong.

A cup of tea and mustard toast.

A yellow silk tie and a bright red gown.

    Interesting that they never could decide if anything was ever wrong. I guess it keeps the peace in the house that way. Smiles.

    i like that you just give hints of their looks but try to capture more the character of them…the love that never decides right & wrong…interesting…ever the encouragers eh? both my grandfathers were dead by the time i was 10…wish i had gotten more time with them…

    I must say this intrigued me.. I can read their interdependence… maybe that’s the key to lifelong relationships…

    This pops with the color of life, ZQ. Cohabiting can be calm if we choose it to be that way, I do believe.

    Wonderful when Love is blind in a true way, when it can come as it is and be welcomed to the sky holding party. I wish I could read french.

    yes there seem to be an air of peace they both chose not to dispell. There were always two sides not to mention a different day to begin in love, again 🙂

    Thanks Claudia. “Intent” is an elusive culprit in defining the background that depicts the character(s) …but you never know? 🙂

    Yes! It’s amazing that those who love like that, don’t know they love like that. It just happens and continues to happen. Perhaps age can teach us that too. 🙂
