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.

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! (:
