2010 PAD- Day 12

Well, I finally got the chance! My Day 6 Read Write Poem worked for today’s Poetic Asides prompt as well, so here it is again (with truncated title):

Paris

We bow our heads
at la Tombe du Soldat Inconnu,
collect postcards at le Louvre
and stroll along la Rive Gauche
in the footsteps of Hemingway.
April, I say, isn’t the best time
to be in Paris,
as inconsistent skies
pelt rain on us one moment
and smile upon us
with all the good will
of a benevolent parent the next.
But Paris, he murmurs,
isn’t the worst place
to be in April.

  1. Thanks for visiting my blog…I have to agree with both your sentiments about Paris, having been there in April once. Enjoyed both your entries today. You are so prolific!
