The soul splits,
lost amid
Calm reprieve,
busy streets
Graceful curves,
hide the bones
Here we wait,
limbo’s friend
Holding fear,
steadfast pause

Eiffel Tower, Paris

  1. Fantastic and unique perspective! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a photo of the Eiffel Tower taken from that angle. Your poem picks out the best of the photo: “busy streets, Graceful curves, hide the bones” – wonderful! 🙂


    • Thanks! 🙂

      It was a quick shot. I leaned over and aimed the camera and snapped the shot before my group left without me. Initially, the shot didn’t work, but a little photo editing did the trick. 🙂


    • It’s a shot I’m so glad I could save thanks to a little photo editing. The original looks terrible, but I always liked the angle from which I attempted the shot. Ten years later, it finally got the chance to shine! 🙂


      • Interesting how it often takes time for a creation to gel into the right form! Either the need to develop internal or external (photo editing software, for example) prevents the immediate completion of the idea. This shot was worth the wait!
