Sunday Walk in Poetry

Winter Stillness

sweet morning calm
silence everywhere
snapping cold, yes
but, without wind
the mountain-tops
are covered in snow
I’m walking without a goal
serenity  is my companion
the church bell strikes…
with dawn’s first light
street lamps darken
yet the sun
is far from
my valley
still hidden
in some other world


I raise my glass and salute you with this Shape Poem  😉 !

A Sunday Walk in Words November 17, 2013

Sunday Morning

The valley covered in a fine mist calmly awaited the day to begin.

The middle-aged lady walked under the gentle rain, protected by her red umbrella.  The trees, heavy with dripping water, in her mind seemed like a new species…mature with its transparent falling fruit. Continue reading

A Sunday Walk – Diatelle Poem: Daring

The Diatelle is a fun, syllable counting form like the etheree with a twist. The syllable structure of the diatelle is as follows: 1/2/3/4/6/8/10/12/10/8/6/4/3/2/1, but unlike an ethere, has a set rhyme pattern of abbcbccaccbcbba. This poetry form may be written on any subject matter and looks best center aligned in a diamond shape.



To try
To free fly,
No parachute,
Went a regular guy!
He put on his pink striped sweat suit.
Thinking:  “what a great way to pay tribute,
to Mercury! airy god who loved a fun dare!”
So he drove off to a high mountain butte,
To perform his daring debut!
A feat that would defy
Minds too minute.
In the sky:

Sunday Walk: September 8, 2013

Good Morning World, are you ready for our Sunday walk?  We’re back in Riva del Garda to see the Seamen’s Monument:

To The Lost at Sea

To The Lost at Sea

To arrive there we’ll come down to the old pier from the Mermaid fountain through the Piazza just across from the Fortress, which we saw earlier this week:



Here are some pylons (well they’re actuall all along the old pier). I just thought I’d add this because I liked the gull!


Walking towards the old port along the pier where fishermen used to moor their boats, we find the monument to the lost at sea.  Of course we’re very far from the sea, but because of our lake many had gone off to war as sailors.

Along the old pier we now have some great cafès and restaurants…in case you just want to sit back and look at the lake.

Hope you enjoyed the walk.  Have a wonderful Sunday!
