dVerse Poets Pub : A French Twist For Quatorze Juillet

hosted by K, aka ManicDDaily, also a/k/a Karin Gustafson 😉

*

from and of the french is all around us!

today’s prompt celebrates exploring what french is for us in our own lives on today, Bastille Day

as ms K puts it,

“the three watchwords of the French revolutionaries celebrated today–Liberté, Fraternité and Egalité (Freedom, Brotherhood/Sisterhood, and Equality).  These are also, to some degree, watchwords here at dVerse….”

this is a fun prompt, with lots of examples of things french, especially poetry, including the sound of french in poetry –

and having visited paris once, just over a decade ago, it nice to feel the memories still move…

i hope you enjoy this small poem, oui? 😉

Walking in Paris

the

lady, a native

parisian (was obvious)

smiled, amused, i was pointing

taking photos of planters in windows

so much everyday for her

yet

so many flowers

and

eagerness for color

and light

for us

at

night

lights on the streets

in the shops and along the

branches of trees lining the walks

mirrored

the planters, flowers for

day

shinings at night

the

same city

warm

in scents of caresses

heartbeats, touched with new love

    You’ve been to Paris, you’re so lucky! I enjoyed the irony you depict of taking picture of flowers,mthat everyday reality so humdrum for the inhabitant, so enchanting for the outsider.

  3. The windows in Paris, for me, told stories. When I lived there (long ago) you could fill in a lot about the lives of the persons in the little flats…laundry, sheets airing out the windows…and you could look in a catch a glimpse of their everyday. This was in the 19eme arrondissement, not the Paris of tourists. Fun jouney, Filipe.

    There are such wonderful flowers, and you capture that light and color and the French smugness so beautifully. k.

    Lovely poem and shape! I especially like this line: “so much everyday for her”. Things can be either new or boring to each of us… Seeing things with new eyes is a good experiment. I guess it was for this lady at least!

      thanks so much for stopping by 😉 it seems that “sometimes” just doing a poem on something gives me “new eyes” –

      always, as you say (and i agree) “a good experiment” 😉
