Vintage Park Bench

Benches line the parks and boulevards of

This vintage park bench sits in my backyard under a pear tree.

Sitting on the bench transports me to Paris.

Remembering beautiful historic parks tucked into the neighborhoods...

Parisians reading a book or newspaper,

Meeting friends for a leisurely conversation... 

My backyard becomes my own private Parisian park filled 
with birdsongs,
with leaves rustling in the breeze,

and with memories of a time and place faraway.
