…the silent tears of rain…


Paris…a rainy Monday morning. Rue Mouffetard, uncharacteristically empty, the cobblestones, polished by centuries of trudging footsteps, glisten with the rain, reflect the gray sky. Paris shakes off too little sleep and stirs beneath her sheets. “Yes,” whispered Rimbaud to his lover, “Even in paradise it rains. Silent tears of joy, tears of pain, the silent tears of rain…”
