Paris, outraged Paris, broken Paris, martyred Paris but confined Paris …
What a strange impression given by this crossing of Paris on this Monday morning of Easter April 13, 2020. The streets empty of cars, the empty sidewalks of pedestrians, the air filled with bird cries and spring scents. A disturbing and enchanting vision of the end of the world.
The Seine without waves, flat as a pond because there are no more barges or bateaux mouches to disturb it. Place de la Concorde frozen in the sun like a large sundial with the Obelisk planted in the middle of the desert! Place Saint Michel quickly crossed by a completely empty bus and the dragon of the fountain which looks like a giant virus. If Jacques Prévert was still of this world, he would surely have found a poetic inspiration in this suspended moment.
Who will free Paris from Covid 19?
But maybe not too fast for us to have time to enjoy it a little before the deconfinement!
Good confinement. – Roger Turqueti
