“The Woods Within Paris”

geniuses

like renior

monet degas manet

gathered memories

and fashioned manners of living

still breathing

today

*

today

families from block houses

condos apartments and suites

seek

blends of light in the beauty of palaces

too grand for only the

few –

palaces set with fountains

for birds and children playing among

the

flowers and trees gracing

paris’ soil

*

in the distance

the eiffel tower rises dimly

at day, brightly at night

while nearby

children and pets

run among fleeing

pigeons who know

they can return

as nature always returns

once the people finally rest

having allowed our nature to smile

among the rich woods rooted deep in our hearts

Final Thoughts

the tuileries here in paris, based on what’s i’ve read in the links above, and the feel of the gardens and expanse and contrast of massive buildings and open nature, is one of a thankfulness for what is possible, for peaceful co-existence

though it’s also obvious, from the history here, this is an on-going process

not without a price, and not without an effort

ironically though, that effort and price is of one toward peace, not continual conflict

which (peace) may be the biggest challenge of living within of all

after all, what’s the stereotypical funny family movie about thanksgiving usually about 😉

    • you’ll have to come visit us before we go

      we’d tossed around the idea of taking a train trip to barcelona, but really, it’s enough being here

      we got some rare sunshine this afternoon and were by st severin’s, so we headed to notre dame and saw it in sunlight for the first time since we got here, then it got windy and colder, but it was worth it 😉
