Reflection and Movement in Venice


Street scene in Venice

strings 
of bright lights 
caught 
in a window

vis-a-vis 
with another
an alley 
with people

walking
straight through
the window 
displays

with
echoing strides
approach
-ing and dying

for the camera
unseen
in the light
of reflection

  1. I adore those masks Gwil - the Venetians are past masters at the art of mask-making aren't they?

    1. There are thankfully artisans in many skills still to be found in certain quarters of Venice. How it will last is an open question. Each year more and more such places close and go over to cheap imports and kitsch.

  2. The poem is beautiful and reveals the atmosphere .
    As for Venice's masks, Murano's glass and Burano's lace, they are dying arts. I love visiting Venice in winter with grey foggy days and no tourists about. Greetings Maria x
