asolo

asolo by anelephantcant

in a house
on the outskirts
of a medieval village
built on Roman baths
looking across
the North Italian plains
to the sharpened Alps
to Atlantean Venice
and to the Val dee Fade
the Valley of the Fairies
where
the Anguane
the Lumiera
and the Mazzariol
dance
work
and make mischief
lives a family
part of a greater family
who welcome
with open arms
open homes
open hearts
the lost daughter
of a long gone
much loved
never forgotten
brother
showing
warmth
generosity
and love
far surpassing
that required
but yet
given
freely
unquestioningly
simply
because
for them
she is them
always

For Davide Stona, Friend and Architect

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. https://anelephantcant.me/
