Paris - Summer in the City of Love

travelthroughthelens:

Paris

is a dream.

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

the history-bleached architecture,

as the days linger long,

like trailing words spilling slowly

off the phrases of lovers.
