the sun broke through the clouds
just as she had begun to set,
I had left Dommayer's Café and walked out
through their beautiful garden.
in the light of
a midsummer's eve,
into the Lapis Lazuli of the "Blue Hour".
have graced my home for a month now.
I cannot bear to eat them,
so I gave them a place of honour
and to my delight,
they keep nicely,
when they greet me in the morning
