Paris Idyll

October 8, 2015

Fore clouds
Mid clouds
Back clouds
The Parisian Cycle
Of light and shade
Lulls me out of sadness
And into the day.

Giant barges parting
The grey chopping waters
Of my Parisian
Tempting me to work
To paint
To dream away
Another day.

My left foot hurts.
I count the steps
As it stiffens
And pulses.
I sit and look-
My city before me-
Paris at my feet-
My poor throbbing feet.
