I have taken a step into French, it is my family language after all. I did a google search for 'poesie 21 siecle' and pretty soon came across this poem. I feel very pleased with myself that I can just read it so very easily. The meaning for 'averse' came to me after a bit. A good surprise that vocab is not permanently dormant.
'trombe' is familiar but I don't actually know what it means. Google says 'downpour', so that's a good play on words: 'tombe en trombes'.
I had forgotten about artists like Nicholas de Stael too, so the pictures on the blog are an additional gift.
