Empty chairs and empty tables
The ghosts of yesterday’s laughter linger quietly
As threads of friendships warm and embracing envelope these chairs
Last night these tables saw a celebration of life
where food was bountiful
and wine and mirth ran freely.
How eagerly we greet the chance to meet
…. the chance to eat
…. the chance to nourish our souls
with friendships old and new
as we share our days and minds
And sit ….
…. at once empty chairs and empty tables.
What a warm and eloquent post Frannie.
Here's to sharing a meal with friends.
I also take photos of tables and chairs but have never had a thought clever enough to put them together with story in a post. . .well done!! Jx
And here's to sharing a meal with you too dear Belinda – and soon please? Thank you F x
They always remind me of the song "Empty chairs at empty tables" from Les Misérables. A beautiful song of friendships past. Glad you liked them – would love to see your chairs and tables one day. Fx
Here's to sitting again on those empty chairs in Elounda. Let's not wait too long – beautiful pictures and sentiments. Love
Molto bello. A little sad as summer finishes and all is on hold till the next…xx
It's just beginning here Niki – high humidity and into the late 30's early 40's next couple of days – ugh too early for this! Baci xx
Ready when you are! xx
great idea for a post because they do look inviting as do that gorgeous water and weather!
Such colours, can only be Greece. Wonderful pictures.
How lovely!! I wish I were there, right now…and thank you for visiting me and joining Dress.
How beautiful! And how I miss the water! The season is turning here too – this morning I saw snow on the mountains and the temperature is heading downward. Better that way though. Wet muddy autumn can be a little depressing. I prefer brisk, real cold. And snow!! Xcat
Thank you xx
