La Vie Remontant

1 Comment

Choosing to declare peace
‘La vie remontant’ means living more
Living prepared to be left speechless
In due season. In good soil. Intent on
Simplifying, sweetening the deal.
You trade vacations for sabbaticals
Dream in turquoise, navigate seasons
And whether the world is still or not
It’s about standing stand back from the edge
And loving enemies like laugh lines
Roaming vineyards, picking red flowers
Shooting straight, keeping promises
Living late and in uncommon hours
And believing just once in once upon a time
Cultivating smart, quiet, strong, truer.
You refuse to hurry. You live big times small
And tell the world, ‘I want my dreams back’. And say, ‘I do’
With calm assurance, under blue skies, you laugh loud
Rewind, reset. et voilà. New day. In pours the sun.
