The fortress at dusk… NaPoWriMo Aprl 21, 2014



in the ancient fort
long now it’s purpose gone
here we offer space
for artists and amusements
it’s moat full of ducks

 battles here once fought
are forgotten now to most
foreign invaders
welcomed now by our merchants
who sell hospitality

Venice and Milan
no longer the enemy.
Germanic hoards come …
our coffers need your euros
we toast you now with beer …

set up your campers
fill your sails with Garda’s winds
eat, drink, be merry
we’ve forgotten all the past
and the sorrow that you brought

yet inside some breasts
lingers still a vague unease
the money attracts
yet many would still agree
t’would be better to be free


in shadows light - walking under weeping pines - spring rain
