paris morning

in Paris, this is one of the precious few moments of laughter we found.  here, on a playground between the seine and the notre dame, two boys see-saw endlessly in the april sunshine, laughter spilling out and floating into the dusty air, unnoticed by the drawn-faced adults perched stiffly on the scattered benches.  their laughter hung in the air like sparkling notes, a burst of green waving from the dried earth, a burst of joy.

i rested my head on the shoulder of my love, relaxed my tired body, and drank it in.
