myself and me

Paris

In Paris,

Run through a river

La Seine

Watching by Goddess Sequana

Flowing into the English Channel 

 

In Paris,

Cross a bridge

Pont des Arts 

The rusty love locks

Keeping Lover's commitments of forever

 

In Paris

Sit a cathedral

Notre-Dame de Paris

Ring of the bell

Telling the tragic romance of

The hunchback and Esmeralda 

 

In Paris

Stand a tower

tour Eiffel

An expression of France's gratitude

The global symbol of Paris

 

In Paris

Located a Palace

Le Louvre

Where Mona Lisa conquer the world

With her mystery smile

 

In Paris

Erect a monument

Arc de Triomphe

At the center of twelve radiating avenues

The tomb of unknown soldiers

 

In paris

Hide a cabaret

Moulin rouge

The music of can-can dance

Spinning with the red windmill on the roof

   

In Paris,

Live a group of people

Parisiens

Living their Paris life

Dreaming their Paris dream

 

Paris, je t'aime.

        You mean my ID photo? That's Scituate Lighthouse in Scituate, Massachusetts. Thanks for the compliment.

        I share your love of this unique city, 'myself'. Had the pleasure of a couple of visits. Thanks for this fine poetic reminder!

          You are welcome. Maybe, I shall visit it again in the future.

          Beautiful sensation of a tour in Paris. I'm still dreaming of going there. Was going last year had everything settled but an accident kept me from going. Thanks for sharing.

            You are welcome. One day, your dream will come true.
