Poetry Friday: While Washing Dishes in Italy

While Washing Dishes in Italy

Worn mottled tiles,
frayed cloth, and black iron curls
guard her cool, dusk dreams.

Lorie Ann Grover, 2012

My dear friend, Dia Calhoun is touring Italy. This is a recent photo she snapped from her apartment in Milan. Ciao!

Even washing dishes looks romantic in Italy!

Italy reminded me of the line from Byron's poem (I think it was Byron):

"All that's best of dark and bright
meet in her aspect and her eyes."

That's how Italy was for me.

I love the last line. "cool, dusk dreams" is absolutely haunting and gave me chills!
