On Sunday Afternoons at Lake Como

Lakesidefriends

MountainsLoom

Where mountains loom,

Willow

and trees grow yellow,

Bicycling

a pair of bare-armed girls bump on a bicycle.

Boys&Firecrackers

Two boys ignite firecrackers in the alley.

boats

but sets of boats lies idle.

Cyclamen

A window still hangs open to catch late breezes,

pepper

while another holds dried pepper.

Alfresco

In an old courtyard, a fifteenth-century fresco presides over an evening meal,

embarcadero

groups of excursionists wait for a steamer to ferry them home,

Tramonto

before mist accumulates.

Here, wandering these paths alone, I long for you.
