Paris - Summer in the City of Love

Paris blossoms

in the summer.

Trees,

heavy with leaves,

shimmer in rare bouts

of sunlight

that pours

over the city streets

like white gold.

And even

the rain

shimmers against

history-bleached architecture,

as the days linger long,

like trailing words spilling slowly

off the phrases of lovers.
