Paris Friday November 13th 2015 by Jonathan Beale

Blue

All mankind… being all equal and independent, no one ought to harm another in his life, health, liberty or possessions.
John Locke

..
An accidental falling of spring sun light

As the afternoon fell in to darkness

In this mid-November storm.

Seas of leaves – storm and vortex – divisive

The pigeons in their chores relive.

..

Swirled around and around until

The afternoon fell into darkness

Life off course, and of course.

Their number, too vast

For their time – just too vast.

..

Their future rips at their deed

As the darkness fell into death

To exist, in a Parisian mood.

Not out of any hellish scene

From Bruegel or Bosch.

..

The ages crumble, as change must,

As darkness fell into death

trying to erode, the foundation

of the mountain.  The Gallic

strength not to bow; not to break.

..

White

It is clear that not in one thing alone, but in many ways equality and freedom of speech are a good thing.
Herodotus

..
Life and death is something

We are united by

A sole life a man a woman

..

A soul left covered in white canvas

A picture left incomplete

Under cover of white canvas in the street

..

Life and death is something

We are united by

A sole life a man a woman

..

Their Friday ready to unwind

The guard dropped

Ready to relax

..

Life and death is something

We are united by

A sole life a man a woman

..

Then a random demon

As hellish as the wildest fire

Melting human flesh and souls

..

Life and death is something

We are united by

A sole life a man a woman

..

Seeing a city ripped & torn

Apart and seeing exposed limbs

And tendons – A modern Golgotha

..

Life and death is something

We are united by

A sole life a man a woman

..

A soul left covered in white canvas in the street.

A picture left incomplete under cover

time moves along leaving one behind

..

Life and death is something

We are united by

A sole life a man a woman

..

Red

..

“If you have two shirts in your closet, one belongs to you and the other to the man with no shirt.” 
― St. Ambrose of Milan

..

The rivers of fraternity

Have run red today

This plot of whys, whys, & whys

Le monde

Is covered in

Bleu – Blanc – Rouge

Pax. Paris

..

Be thou the rainbow in the storms of life. The evening beam that smiles the clouds away, and tints tomorrow with prophetic ray.
Lord Byron
