NaPoWriMo #24

Evening in Paris

Rusty peach clouds
puddling on cobblestoned ground-

It's evening in Paris and
everyone has their umbrellas out,
gossiping as spindly tree branches
stretch out from behind lonely
old buildings.

The street is filled with a
hopeful sort of solemnity,
the bold lampposts illuminating
quiet reflections in the rain.

Probably your best NPWM poem! Love it.

Nonie said...

You are really talented at writing lovely last stanzas. <3 I have to agree w/ Maya on what she said. :)

I love this one.

Danielle said...

I think this is your best so far, made better by the fact that it's about Paris because I am getting very excited for my France trip in a few weeks! (:

These are beautiful!
