Last Day in Paris

A cup of coffee
and an apple tart
at a favorite bistro
takes the chill out
of a rainy afternoon
on the one day
I didn't bring my umbrella
along.

Rain began and ended
this Paris trip
(making me feel right at home)
but the days in between
were quite nice.

 A big olive press 
(I think)
in the window
of a cool shop 
on Ile Saint Louis.

To heavy
to put in my suitcase.
The olive oil
that is.

Lights on the Seine
create magic.

Je retournerai 
au printemps.
