Separation
by W. S. Merwin

Your absence has gone through me
Like thread through a needle.
Everything I do is stitched with its color.

Unique characteristic!

Yes, color really is an attribute that makes something unique in a special way.

Very pretty. I'll write it down in my notebook.

Glad you like it, Cécile.
J'aimerais bien jeter un coup d’œil à ton carnet, i'm sure i would find a lot of beautiful verses and quotes in it.

Ton français est parfait, Thinker :)
My notebook is just like me: thougts, poetry quotes, drawings, and lots of notes to remember all the things I have to do everyday!
Some day I'll scan a page or two.
Et si jamais tu viens à Paris, qui sait? :)

Thanks, i understand pretty much of it, but when i try to speak French it takes some time for me to make a proper sentence:)
I've visited Paris once and i was amazed by its beauty, especially by Montmartre and Basilique du Sacré-Cœur. I hope i will have a chance to visit it again soon.
It would be great to have a chat with you in person:)
