Not only am I missing Paris today
but I'm also missing these magnificent bread sculptures...
... made by a long gone artiste.
Just down the street from us
in their corner window,
Blvd de Grenelle's Poilane bakery in Paris
frequently used to display an exquisite scene
made out of BREAD.
Every time I walked by and there was a new one,
I had to get out my camera.
And now I'm so thankful I did!
Because one year when we returned,
they were gone.
They simply covered the window with a curtain.
And each time I went by, I checked.
But always the curtain.
I finally went in to ask
after years of watching for them
and wondering about them.
The young clerk had no idea what I was talking about.
Missing whoever it was
that created such artistry.
