via Daily Prompt: Daring

She was quiet in the shadows
Of Auberge du Lac cafe´
Simple black white shirt,
Thin black scarf wrapped
‘Round head and neck.
Dark Audrey Hepburn glasses
Hiding eyes and face.


Old men can be daring
We have naught to lose.
I approached and asked
With my poor best French,
Est-ce que vous parlez anglais?
She took her glasses down.


I looked into her eyes,
Saw the dimples in her smile
And knew I had to take the chance.
Now we Spring and Summer in Colmar
And Fall and Winter in Provence.
