In this dream

I am in Paris.

It is just before dawn and

a man waits beneath a

street lamp.

A sad smile that doesn’t

reach his eyes passes

through me.

I am the memory of an

anonymous red rose.

Between lovers , he roams

the lonely streets at night

sinking  into eyes as deep

as the river Seine

the kind one might find

just before drowning.

          1. Yes it was and it’s a town that has a rich history since the Middle age . During a long time Paris was the center of the fashion and also for new ideas ( not necessarily good , however ). It was wlso a town for lovers but is always it . I don’ t know. Perhaps ! ❤
