haiku d’été and a stunning photo of Mars! – Mars – her ocean = Mars - son océan, et une photo éblouissante de Mars !

Mars’ sandy ocean
laps her greening shores – 
can you imagine that?

l’océan de sable
de Mars clapote ses rives vertes –
l’imagines-tu ?

spring haiku de printemps – Leela Gilday chants = Leela Gilday chante

Leela Gilday chants,
her voice the snowy owl’s
and the tundra greens

Leela Gilday chants 620

Leela Gilday chante,
elle est la chouette blanche –
que la toundra verdit !

And here is the link to her fantastic site, Leela Gilday, K’eintah Natse Ju:

By some fabulous and bizarre co-incidence, her middle name Natse is almost identical to the Japanese word, Natsu, which means summer!

En haut, le lien à son site,  Leela Gilday, K’eintah Natse Ju:

Par pure coincidence bien bizarre, son nom Natse est presque identique au mot japonais, Natsu, qui signifie l’été ! 


summer haiku d’été – fleurs-de-lys white = fleurs-de-lys blanche

fleurs-de-lys white
in a garden green –
sight unseen or seen?

fleurs-de-lys blanches
dans un jardin vert –
les vois-tu ou non ?

summer haiku d’été – the Milky Way = la voie lactée

sprinkled on our tent
the Milky Way masked
by eerie green light

la voie lactée
masquée par la lumière verte
de notre tente

summer haiku d’été – the buddhist monk = le moine bouddhiste

the buddhist monk
roaming the greenwood mountains
is the forest

le moine bouddhiste
qui erre dans les montagnes vertes
est la forêt

The full range of marvelous, rich colours the Minoans at Knossos used on their stunning frescoes!

We notice right away that the colours they had at their disposal ran from various shades of yellows (saffron) and oranges to blues and various shades of purple. The Minoans at Knossos, Pylos, Thera (Thira, Santorini) and elsewhere were unable to reproduce green pigment.  This minor drawback had little or no perceptible effect on the splendid results they almost invariably came up with in their breathtaking frescoes, the likes of which were not reproduced anywhere else in the Occidental ancient world, except perhaps by the Romans, especially at Pompeii. The Romans were able to reproduce greens. 

Two lovely frescoes from Pompeii:
