Postcards from France

Jardin du Lexembourg

the bending daffodils

under smog

double rainbow . . .

rain from the awning

drips on my baguette

above the tour guide’s umbrella

a broken gargoyle

snags a cloud

under the arch

another tourist

poses like napoleon

sending a French postcard . . .

the daffodil stamp

tastes like home
