Flickr Wednesday: Poetry and Art from MichaeLynn Borich

MichaeLynn Borich are Michael and Lynn Borich, a couple who live in Springfield, Missouri.  Both are photographers who collaborate on the images they post to their Flickr account. .

Michael Borich is also an accomplished and published poet.

Their work was featured in a June 22nd Flickr Wednesday.

I asked MichaeLynn to let me present this most recent Flickr post as
a special feature and they agreed.


Nights in Paris


Nights in Paris

we were
too young,
two trying to
become one,
to disappear
into shadows
along the quay,
the Pont Neuf,
ripples of light
the water
became, last
two pigeons
that watched
us vanish, hand
in hand where
the path ahead
lay dark, where
city sounds,
night sounds,
