Slumbering suns
take a midmorning nap;
alleyways bright with
golden ladies,

their smiles canal-deep.
Nightfall brings guides:
stone sighs and dead light,
(never so alive).
One of my great loves, Venice. :heart:

I'm one of those few, crazy people who don't really like Venice all that much, but I do like the imagery in this poem a lot: particular love for the break between the stanzas, it makes the transition flow as natural as a sunset. :)

I wish I could go there.

I particularly love 'their smiles canal-deep.' and the rhyme in the last stanza. :heart:

You might get an opportunity to travel there one day -- Venice is certainly well worth the wait! :love:

Venice is amazing, though I didn't get to spend nearly as much time there as I would have liked -- I actually would have traded time in Rome for Venice, haha. :3

welcome ^^

me neither! took a week long trip to Italy we stayed in Venice 2 days then Florence for 2 and then Rome for 2.
I could have stayed in Venice the whole week. Rome is so much busier, too much of a city feel. Florence was
really nice though.

Yep, I hear you! I was in Italy for 7 days as well, and took day trips to Venice, Florence and Pompeii and was in Rome for the rest. Rome is fascinating -- it's so strange how the ruins are just dotted around the city right next to a supermarket or whatever! -- though out of London and Paris, Rome was the capital I didn't go much on.

Florence was lovely. But Venice takes the cake! ;)

oh yeah! Pompeii as well...actually really enjoyed that bit.

I did find that aspect of it interesting. it is a beautiful city just felt so busy...I liked the pace of the other cities better.

it does :nod:

Pompeii was incredible although I really had no idea what was going on half of the time -- my friend and I had these terrible audio guides that confused us so much after about fifteen minutes that we had to turn them off. Then we got lost and caught in a storm looking for the House of the Faun (which I don't think we ever did find, haha) and our maps just disintegrated in our hands. It would have been nicer if I had of known exactly what I was looking at when we got places. As it was, it was the majority of Pompeii was just a bunch of random ruins to me. Still an absolutely incredible place to visit, though. What history!

oh no! haha, yeah it's not as great without knowing what it's all about.
definitely makes it more haunting.

it freak me out if I got lost in a place like that...it was so quiet there even with people walking around everywhere
just knowing how all those people died.

Absolutely. It's one of those places that could almost feel serene if not for knowing what horror actually occurred there. I guess Pompeii's actually a rather weak example for that, but I've certainly been to some places that had that feeling. Very eerie.
