Treasures galore as I explore Paris
A city experienced, unlike any other,
History’s presence an enveloping shroud,
My sensory perceptions unusually heightened.
In Paris my passions are fully aroused
With sensual feelings strong and deep,
My personal awareness reaches its peak
Savoring happenings moment by moment.
Sights and sounds along the streets
With Parisians so colorful to perceive,
Buildings with keen fascinations to the eye,
Imagining profound history they must hold.
Creative spirits, permeating presence
Seen in beauty of flowers and foliage,
The many artistic creations, resonating
In varied styles of sculpture and .
Powerful passions deeply stirred these artists
As they toiled in perfecting so many creations,
Sensual expressions from their deep feelings
Burst forth in myriad legacies present today.
Old men and women ambling with their dogs
Seeming so permanent in their daily routines,
Young women flaunting their Parisian beauty
With styles seeming to endure through time.
Parisian women are so strikingly unique
With styles present in distinctive personas,
Whether in jeans, skirts or expensive suits
They have an attraction unique to themselves.
Tasteful food smells always flourishing
A prelude to sumptuous meals soon coming,
The cafes, brassieres and bistros are filled,
Parisians live fully with enjoyment of passions.
Young lovers openly expressing affections
With caresses and kisses, unashamedly shown,
Often in many parks that abound
Or in dark corners of teeming cafes.
My sensual nature acutely felt here
Amidst sensations pervading the air,
With strong inner passion I explore
These facets of life uniquely Parisian.
