Dans la Direction de Paris


Sometimes travel inspires a poem. Sometimes a poem inspires travel.  At WONDERLUST we dig poetry, and we know we’re not alone. So we’re going to publish some great ones as we come across them!


We hope they inspire you, for nearby journeys, faraway journeys, or the furthest journey, deep inside yourself.




Dans la Direction de Paris


On the train to Paris,

I brush my hand across your hand

then draw it back. I think of you

and you are already a memory,

the memory of a memory.

Sadness is your name carved

on a tree in winter.

L’amour. L’amour. L’amour.
