  • Crispy mornings, a ticket to Eiffel,
    Laughter, giggles and more laughter.
    Love stories, photographs,
    A smile lost in the crowded street.

    Travel guides, happy notes,
    Hidden cafés and conversations.
    Airport transits, quick glances,
    The warm rush of dreams.

    Train schedules, empty seats,
    Phone booths and shy humor.
    Quick hellos, slow farewells,
    And memories of a distant Fall.

    It's strange what strangers help you find.
