I had the opportunity to visit the City of Lights and did all the touristy things like go up the Eiffel Tower and literally jogged through the Louvre. Even had the chance to visit the Rodin Museum. Recently watched on YouTube a pieced-together video of someone’s visit to the same museum. It brought back a flood of fond memories and was the impetus for the following poem.
THE GREAT GENIUS OF RODIN
By Poetic Expressions
Sinewy muscles encased in marble
Emerging from its rocky grip,
Frozen timeless in mid-pose,
Living flesh transformed from lifeless stone –
The great genius of Rodin.
