Postcards from Paradise: Venezia
One place I call a heart-home
Or Paradise, if you will,
Is Venice, Queen of the Sea.
She called her siren song to me the first time
when I was deeply in love with my beloved,
and we explored her charms together.
When I was back to just me,
I feared it was the memory of “us”
that I loved about Venice
and not Venice herself,
so I revisited her alone
with great trepidation.
But no, it was the lady herself
in all her many moods
who had whispered to my heart
and beckoned me back.
