The
Breeze
Moved through
The red velvet
Curtains amongst
The marbled columns,
With tropical plants 
Shimmering under
The archways;
The light reflecting
On the pond
Below.

strol01_400The scent
Of vanilla
And bergamot
Floating over
The stone fountain;
Lions,and cupids
Squirting water
Into the air,
Arching into
The frothy
Water
Below.

We
Strolled
Amongst
Sparse crowds
That laced
The lawns
And parkways,
Past statues
Of generals
And gods to
The sounds
Of violins
Among picnic
Baskets and
Lovers kissing
In the soft
Diffusing
Light.

The
Orange
Light fell
Like liquid
Drops on
Closed eyelids,
As I consumed
My surroundings.

The colours,
The aromas,
The classical
Charm; it
Was as
Though the
Whole landscape
Became vivid
And alive like
A Seurat
Painting.

The colours
Falling among
The soft light like
Thick brushstrokes
Daubed on
Canvas.

How would
A kiss, a caress,
The sweet fluid
Taste of red wine,
Or the gentle breeze
Kissing her face be
Captured?

The
Light
Faded,
And I felt a
Poignant
Pang,but
I would
Never forget
The sweetness
Of that day.
