The Princess in her Fancy Dress
The princess in her fancy dress
Lies dormant. Or dead?
Her sleep, a dreamless one –
The tripping steps of a lost troll stop.

A French woman living in Seoul, South Korea, Françoise Blanchard is currently working on a follow-up to her first two books, Say Chic and Foodie French (http://www.diateino.com/en/18_francoise-blanchard-choi). Poetry, she recently discovered, is a wonderful tool with the power to create magic using just words. The few poems she has published online (in French) are available under Creative Common license: accentdecomplexe.weebly.com. Words and ideas are not meant to be locked away in books that are never opened.
