Quand tout est dit / When all has been said(scroll down for english)Quand tout est dit / When all has been said by wordeea
Et tes yeux et ta peau et ton odeur
et ton accent et ta serviette qui tombe
au sortir de la douche -
tout ça me manque
que tu me dis.
Et tes fossettes et ta voix et ton cou
et ta main la nuit et le creux
de ton épaule -
(et ton nez en pente de ski et tes fesses
et ton rire et tes silences et les fleurs rouges en panier
et le reste
tout ça me manque
que je te dis.
Et l’océan de se gonfler et la lune
de ricaner -
que l’on se dit.
(et pis c'est tout et pis
c'est comme ça -
et pis je t'aime
And your eyes and your skin and your smell
and your accent and the way your towel
falls off as you come out of the shower -
i miss it all
you tell me.
And your dimples and your voice and your neck
and the crook of your arm and
your hand at night -
(and your nose like a ski slope and the small of your back
and your laugh and your silences and those red flowers
in suspended baskets -
and the rest
Ivre de vie dans la lumière|

La nuit je mens
Je prends des trains à travers la plaine
La nuit je mens, effrontément
|I am a Foreign Language Admin at DailyLitRecognition ! That means I keep an eye out for the best FRENCH literature on dA (specifically poetry). If you think you have a suggestion for me, read on!|
What is DailyLitRecognition / LitRecognition?
DLR is a group dedicated to promoting the work of Literature artists on deviantArt.
By showcasing one featured DD per day, the Literature Gallery Moderators provide the community with a showcase of excellence in Literature. In contrast, we will be showcasing excellence with a series of literature pieces each day in a News Article to serve the community. We are a diverse group featuring 5 pieces of quality literature every day.
In such a large community many writers feel that their work goes unnoticed. DLR is here to help change that!
How do I suggest a DLR?
Please see the profile page for the general guidelines and a list of the other Admins you can suggest to. Please only suggest a piece to one Admin at a time to avoid any confusion.
Okay, but what if I have a suggestion for YOU, Wordeea?
Top right corner - send me a note! Here's the rundown:
Please send no more than two suggestions at a time. This makes it easier for me to keep up.
I can feature FRENCH Prose or Poetry, though I try to focus more on Poetry.
Please include a thumb and a description of why you think this piece deserves to be featured. It doesn't have to be a full critique - a few sentences will do nicely!
Yes, you can suggest yourself! If you deserve it, you deserve it! But please don't send me your entire gallery - remember I have to actually READ everything sent to me.
All the Admins have a certain style they enjoy. I myself like reading FRENCH Poetry that is rich and vivid, tells a story and with a great last stanza/verse. I like it when it punches me in the gut. I like off the cuff stuff, unconventional stuff, i do enjoy classical, but i tend to go towards rough around the edges work
