art The Cafe Bistro on the Rue St Germain in Paris where we sought refuge under the awning from a sudden downpour. The downpour caught us running from the banks of the Seine, scurrying through the side streets to find a place to stay dry. We decided to sit and watch the rain while drinking coffee of the kind only the French can prepare. You know Cafe Ole, Cafe Noir, cafe latte and so forth. Almost as quickly as it started, the rain stopped and a brilliant sun lit up the street and the red awning. Simply beautiful.

Bistro on the Rue St. Germain

We stopped at a Bistro along the Rue St. Germain
I canít remember now
Whether to avoid the sun or the down pouring rain
I do remember how
We enjoyed the small espressos and the spring wine
It was a magical boulevard with the quaintness of a lane
The elegant trees, pale green in the bright sunshine
