I Kiss Your Dream...
di Kate Mc Bride

beneath sun-sparkled gray branches
market umbrellas spread
across the piazza expanse
cafes open and busy
on a mild winters day
the unfinished church facade
casts yellow on the scene
warms students and travelers
gathered in quiet repose
 
residents survey the landscape
leaning from high-arched open ochre empty spaces
of palazzo’s and apartments above
mama with her baby
watches a grown girl dance, she spins
a grandfather’s hand steadies
a young teetering boy
along the edge of a flowing fountain
birds briefly scatter
 
a stoic caribinieri
stops for a smoke
leans on a tree
one leg up
slowly looks left, then right
scooters and Apes serenade all
droll into the distance
away from the oasis of today
where silence and laughter remain

 

 

I kiss your dream
