winter haiku d’hiver – the silk road = le chemin soyeux

the silk road
wends towards the orient
in frosty light 

the silk road 620

le chemin soyeux
s’en va vers l’orient –
lumière glacée

Richard Vallance

The Silk Road was the long distance route silk and fine textile traders followed from Italy and Europe to China from the 14th. century onward.

Le Chemin soyeux était la route à longue distance que les marchands suivaient à partir du quatorzième siècle de l’Italie et de l’Europe jusqu’à la Chine.
