The Windows of Venice 

She had breakfast alone behind the fading mist of last night’s passion. Haunted by lovers come and gone, she stared vacantly through the windows of her Venice apartment. The salty air drifted in from the sea. Images arose in the prism of her emotions and a surge of desire brought her back to last night. Would he return? Was it real?

Once

Once when the pale light
Of dawn crept in
I woke up next to you
A warm wind caressing us
On the Costa del Sol
And we kissed
Naked and wet
Glistening in the midst
Of rainbows
And secrets drifting
In from the sea
Painting images
In the sand
We walked on the beach
Clothed in triumph
And strings
Passion dripping from
The clouds
Bathing our skin
We walked to the water’s edge
The edge of forever
And held on
