In response to The Daily Post's weekly photo challenge: "Victory."
Victory is a complex word, with all sorts of connotations and interpretations -- past, present and future.
Given the horrific events in Paris this week, I have decided to respond with a theme of light for which this city is so well known as it has triumphed over many obstacles.
(Note, I have added a French version of my poem, thanks to Google Translate. It has been quite a while since I studied French at university but I think that the translation is on track. :))
