Creases in the Charm

Woven wood flair
two-tone rattan chairs
of cafe in open air
petit le plat, grand la note,
creases in the charm.

Brown tower ballgown
sparkling night flower
metal mimi
a windy sway
creases her charm.

Underground train
avoid frequent rains
pick-pockets midday
quick fingers
crease the charm.

Galleries of glass
boulangerie brass
cobbler and antiques
treasures cher
crease the charm.

Smoky Seine
full-bodied wine
palm tree fronds
teenager’s playground
creased by the charm.

cold white heart
artists paint in pain
their poverty
creases the charm.

  1. Very cool!! Are you there? It seems impossible… travel, where we’re at in Australia. I have had another nostalgic morning going through old stuff and your poem seems like another layer in the strata cliffs of memory. 🙂
