Haiku Sunday – When in Rome

The final Haiku Sunday before our departure tomorrow. I am in the midst of packing and could not help but play these memories of my beloved Rome for you guys today. I look forward to your comments as I fill the camera bag and suitcases for our big return to Italy. Happy Haiku Sunday!

What are you looking

at, she thought as she lit her

smoke. Get out my face!

Young lust publicly

viewed by many to be too much

isn’t it better to touch?

a walk along roads

much older than most reveals

so little about man

Athena always hates

the last hour before bedtime

she sometimes cries alone

Dante often tires

of hearing so much latin and greek

this is Italy damnit!

Wedding cake icing

never tastes very good nor

makes one feel sated

eyes have a way of

telling stories that perhaps

even the mind does not

A warm night stroll is

the impetus for choosing

this image of the Tiber

smiling all the world is

subjugated

Marion, how do

you suppose these little men

drive these teeny cars?

the foot of the dead world just

before her night prayers

    I don't mind Haiku Sunday, had a good chuckle at the little men driving teeny cars but am extremely curious about the photo that accompanies the last haiku – where was it taken?

      not far from the bridge over the tiber where I shot the night shot of St Peters. I do not know the artist or the significance, I just loved the shot :-) Thanks as always for the follow my friend!

        You're welcome! It is an awesome shot, I thought it must have been in a cemetery and will be looking for it next time I'm in Rome. Enjoy yourselves and the fine food and wine in Italy :-)
