Genoa by night

Genoa by night

Meandering streams of light
Like wisps of smoke
Wrap themselves on the hills
Of the dormant city,
Sliding towards the sea.
Genoa beautiful appears
By night too
Almost as awaiting
For the new day

Genova di notte (italian version)

Rivoli di luce tortuosi
Come volute di fumo
Si avvolgono sulle colline
Della città addormentata, 
Scendendo verso il mare.
Genova bella mi appare
Anche di notte
Quasi attendesse
Il nuovo giorno

    Thank you, Linda. A long time has elapsed before I could answer, but I was really busy, meanwhile. It is always good to hear from you :-))

    Charmaine, you are welcome in my city, which is not beautyful as the ones you visited, but still worth to be seen. Where I live with my wife there are good panoramas both during daylight and overnight! I am going to visit you now...

    Hello Mario, I'm here to read and look at your poem again. Somehow I am drawn to your poetry and new friendship. I stand still before the imagery in your words. Theirs nothing better Bette than the night entering into the dawn of silence... LINDA
