A modern-day version of a steamer trunk once taken on lengthy ocean voyages. This one is in a Paris boutique window featuring holiday resort wear.
For the Poetry Thursday prompt "streets I have known," a haiku:
The streets I have known
scattered here, there, everywhere

"There are places I remember . . ."
That's the first thought that came to mind when I read your haiku. Few people can write a powerful haiku. Good job!

Isn't it hard to imagine traveling on a ship with a steamer trunk?! Good lord, those things must have weighed a TON.

Your haiki was a perfect reflection on the many streets you have known. I love the steamer trunk with all the clothes spilling out. I'm so enjoying the holiday windows from Paris!

Steamer Trunks alway intrigue me, looking at them and opening their drawers and cubbies always has me wondering ummm if only they could talk and tell me about their travels...love the photo, and I would so go for that slip! xo

As I am feeling restless, your poem touched me today.

As a restless traveler, who never gets much chance to go anywhere these days, I appreciate
the view from your streets.

Whenever I see steamer trunks I think of the movie Joe VS the Volcano... I am going to have to dig that one out again!

Nice poem. Makes me think of the various streets I've lived on. You've written a poem that will resonate with many people.

You HAVE been everywhere! I just want you to add HERE to your itinerary ;D. We're not too far from SCAD, you know.

If that haiku isn't just perfect, I don't know what is. That is definitely a bulls-eye.
Your photo complemnts the poem completely.
Also, I had a visit from the Snow Queen, and I thank you for sending her to me. She is beautiful.
And...thank-you for your generous encouragement on my blog.

The perfect pairing of poetry and picture
(apparently I'm popping my p's instead of minding them and my q's today).
Steamer trunks fascinate me - all those little drawers...
Hope your young traveller arrives safely today! xo

Oh, one day I just have to come to Paris only to do window shopping with you. I love your photos.

I want to move to Paris! Here in Woodford, we have a post office

Great haiku! I can totally relate!

The perfect size poem for this busy holiday season. I may have to chime in with a haiku also (it will likely be the longest poem I'll find time to write today).
I've been loving all the holiday photos you've been posting, Tara. All the store displays and decorations bring Christmas in Paris across the see to my own computer. Thanks!

Your haiku describes it perfectly. And the trunk is what I used to dream of when I was a younger traveller. xox
