A Venetian Honeymoon

A gondola floats o’er romantic tides as you and I caress Venetian skies laced deftly in exalted stars applied by brushes dipped in hues of lover’s eyes. A kiss beneath Rialto Bridge in spring feels like our first so many years ago. On every breeze, O Sole Mio sings a serenade in city lights aglow. This hope of love rekindled miles from home, could be our chance to dream and reminisce. Enlightened by a full moon’s wink, we’d roam down Grand Canal in gleaming nights of bliss. Our renaissance, a second honeymoon - to Venice, we could not escape too soon. Written 3/3/17 for Where I Want to Go Contest

What a gorgeous piece and picture. I have not been to Venice but I loved Rome and especially loved the Amalfi Coast.
