Sweet Nothings

Sweet Nothings

I’ve never been to Paris

and yet…

 

I’ve watched the sunset over the River Seine

warmed by a kiss of a breeze

scented with chocolate and raspberry macarons

 

Your champagne lips whispered sweet nothings

 

I caught them,

                                savoring each delectable treat

a coy Audrey Hepburn

to your most charming Cary Grant

 

We danced

as slow as the lights flickering on the water

as graceful as the sweet nothings

shimmering in the moonlight

 

No

I’ve never been to Paris

and yet...

Very beautifully written to evoke the pure romance of this city. I love the way you start & end with the declaration that you've never been there, but then you go ahead & take us there anyway! Many subtle references thru-out to conjure all the senses into this exploration, both familiar & unknown (I love juxtapositions becuz life is full of contrasts) . . . (((HUGS)))

I lived in Paris and although it wasn't like this, it wasn't meant to be. This is the city of romance and imagination you speak of here. And I love it.

no I never been to Paris but is would be a nice trip I never left my country except on a cruise ship down to some funky island in the atlantic Ocean when I was a younger man.

A whisper of a poem that leaves the reader satisfied that a remote taste that might be enough to transport them there in savory delight. It's quite lovely.

as graceful as the sweet nothings shimmering in the moonlight... Be still my heart. truly, Pat

I've never been to Paris, and yet ... reading this poem made me feel as though I have.
Serisously, the imagery in this poem is fantastic. I especially love how it appeals to all the senses as opposed to just one. The repetition of the "I've never been to Paris" line was also a good choice ... at the end, it made the poem feel open-ended, almost like a cliff hanger in prose. I enjoyed everything about this piece from the beautiful artwork to the words themselves. Bravo.
