Weekend Writing Prompt #109 – Idyll

Dale contributes weekly to multiple writing prompts and inspires me to try to do the same. I do one to her every 8 or 9, but she “pushes” me to make the effort. I appreciate her so much for throwing the challenges my way.

Thank you, Sammi, for always getting this ball rolling every week.

I dream in Languedoc blue, and sleep in stone dug from a deep, nurturing earth. The French bread’s scent wafts above cobbled streets, lingering in ivy-covered corners. A Jesus-fountain flows wine instead of water, and partners with my sun-kissed tomatoes, fleur de sel, and grass-tinged olive oil. They are the only company I need at my terraced-lunch.

All must wait until present events become past, and loved ones find their way to heavenly paradise. Until then, I dream in Languedoc blue.

  1. I adore this, Janet.

    Please, may I visit you in your special place?

    And I am totally chuffed that I have inspired you to write more.

    And what in the fuck? I thought I was following you but somehow, was not. Got me some reading to catch up on!!!

    1. There will always be room for friends and loved ones. I do hope you would visit so we can at least go visit the market in Carcassonne. I want to live somewhere where food is still appreciated. And the wine! Oh, Dale, such good wine.

      Je parle très mal le français, mais avec la pratique, je vais peut-être aller mieux.


      1. I knew it. Oh yes. Let’s!
        Hey, it’s why I fell in love with Tuscany! Food and wine. I can do France, too, yanno…

        Je peux t’aider avec ton français. Si tu veux pratiquer, ne te gênes surtout pas!! xoxo


      2. You wrote that and I went, “Huh?” thank goodness for google translate. May friend here in town is French too. He speaks so rapidly, I can barely follow. I have to go slow. In high school, people spoke so fast, and I had such low self-esteem, I couldn’t follow. I closed down. Now, I look at phrases to help me integrate. Practicing words don’t make sense to me. Communicating makes sense to me.

  2. Dear Janet,

    My senses feasted on your delicious descriptions. Beautiful writing. So glad Dale inspired you. She has a knack for that, doesn’t she? Now I have to go back and read this piece once more for dessert.
