on a rainy dreary day, we found a note of sunshine, a place noted in our “lonely planet” book guide that’s provided us with much guidance and ideas :

the location where britain signed the treaty of paris recognizing american independence

all kinds of famous guys like benjamin franklin et al were there 😉 and i’ve provided a few suggested links below for more info on the treaty and war for independence

it was worth the trip 😉

the hotel next door, the guide book also told us, is where hemingway first stayed  in paris

“A Remembered Reality”



as we see it in reality

is a paris made

new in our


with bits of pastries

sips of wines and other

countries’ drinks of preference

with pastas tacos fajitas and sushi

with statues hung with golden

holiday wreaths and holding

cups of once hot coffee


vistas of the eiffel tower



across christmas trees


open gardens planted for

italian princesses married french

paris is a remembered feast


where the buses stop for protestors

and it’s warmer outside in the


under heat lamps outside

on the terrace


i’ll remember her well

broad avenues with slim arms

of tiny streets


birds know to merely walk aside

and fly

only to catch the ships streaming along the quais

yes, paris, yes

About Me



    • all things change, and based on your work i read now, it seems you’re in a good place now 😉

      besides, what happens in your 20s, stays in the 20s 😉 , ie, it’s a product and result of what we knew and felt then –

      often, for me, it was a passionate yet confusing time; old enough for many things, yet still looked on as “too young”

      if there’s a perfect age, it seems to me it must be a secret locked inside our hearts 😉


  1. smiles…jealous in claudia getting to meet you all yesterday…and i will pull your poem to my face and breath deep once more of paris until i can see her…..lovely magical view that you give sir…smiles.


    • well hopefully, a few thousand miles later and a lucky chance here or there, we’ll finally get to meet up too, it would be a distinct pleasure for us 😉 thanks so much brian, ya’ll look to be a great tandem, no wonder dverse’s done so well!


  2. smiles…oh i can imagine how difficult it will be for the two of you to leave this wonderful city… yesterday evening after my appointment i was walking down the champs elysees..bathes in those lights and it was just magical…didn’t want to go…smiles…was lovely to meet you…say hi to sheila as well


    • i will, thank you claudia

      yes aren’t the lights fantastically beautiful there! my favs were the blue globes that marked the break between the areas with the large department stores, and the huge line of little wood shops set up

      and our visit with you will always be one of our highlights, sheila thought the world of you 😉
