Haiku Travelogue by Libby Hall

birds’ song
gently awakens the day
fat cats amble

ancient buildings
shuttered windows, flower boxes
scooters roar

sailboats on horizon
cerulean blue sea —
laps smooth stone beach

sunkissed people stroll
the Promenade d’Anglais
stately date palms wave

Vieux Nice cobblestone streets
yellow, green, ochre buildings
shutters open to sky

bathed in warm sun
laundry hangs above
narrow streets below

people rendezvous
espresso and cigarettes
cafe society

Cours Saleya
flowers and fish compete
church bells toll

home of Matisse
windows overlook market
colors inspire art

rich red tomatoes
zucchinis wear squash blossoms
fresh butter croissants

figs, dates, grapes, olives
salami, gorgonzola
oui, merci beaucoup

textures, aromas, sounds
medieval fairy tale
bonjour, Cote d’Azur
