(Upon our return from a brief sojourn along the canals of Venice, hello again, dear AD friends!)

Reflections upon a Venetian Square


Light seeps through the cracks of a liquid pavement
in all its colours, the apparent and the subliminal ones.
Where do they go, where will they flow, is not a care
as much as it is a grateful awareness, seeping through
cracks of a parched mind and flooding a tide. A tide
of a sense returning, not like a wave, but with the soft
if cold touch of a ripple left upon the retina by a black gondola
gliding muted songs and hushed kisses along a wake of moon
upon the night. The square unfolds its many faces reflected
before my own reflection of thirst that begins to find
the face of its own quenched core. And the eyes upon that face
are at last the ones that flow again, without a care
the grateful awareness of all the colours and all the light
seeping through the first of many sighs, with the cold
yet reviving touch of a breeze that blends the salt
of just one tear with that of the whole sea. Then, I flood
with the tide of masks, devoid of all but that one face:
My own, naked of a gaudily, desperately searched spirit
in antics of colour apparent as those of a clown
and unveiled as a true , subliminal moon, waxing liquid smiles
of a serene happiness reflected upon another face
along their own blended core and wake of liquid lights.

You make Venice come alive with this poem which serves as just the right memento of our visit there. The artwork you created from my photograph is astounding. What a perfect package of creativity you've presented here.

Teu Metade de Um,

Having never been to Venice, she comes alive beautifully in stunning verse. BRAVA!

I've missed you....

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Flows as easily as the water in those Venice canals, wonderful job here Alexandra
Reviewed by Frank Whyte 3/1/2006
We were there a year ago, as well. You have captured the feel, which is full-bodied and aromatic.

Our vase from the glass factory in Murano occupies a place of honor in our corner hutch, and my poem, Begging in Venice, is one of my remembrances of our time there.

I want to go back!

A glorious poem that arouses many wondrous emotions shared in the beauty of this exciting journey. I enjoyed the vicarious thrill of seeing it through your eyes. Thanks for sharing it Alexandra, The art is also fantastic!

Reviewed by Peter Paton 3/1/2006
Delicate and exquisite, with the touch of a Surrealist maestro Alexandra !
I was transported to that delightful place by the sincerity and essence of your mellifluous words
The artwork is compelling
I always come away from your Den re-energised !
