The Princess in her Fancy Dress by Françoise Blanchard

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.
She stirs.
He sees her smile in her ceaseless slumber.

The hint of her breath
Bestows boldness
On our burglar
Who steals the kiss
Meant for a prince.

At the cusp of her lips,
Hope. Lost.

 

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.
