Senryu

 

Oh Grand, Grand Canal

Waiting patiently for me

Shakespeare would be proud.

    Oh my Teddy I do so fear
    you're involved with a gondolier
    with his pole will dipped
    be he so well equipped
    oh my word no! it's a spear

    I have pondered a while on the premise
    of you in a punt out in venice
    i hoping and but fretting
    cos teddy bears wont stand wetting
    all that water can be such a menace

      LOL 🤣🤣🤣 I am sure if anyone can drown in Venice, it will be me, ( you seem to know me too well) 😂 considering the Bard didn't ever get to see it with his own eyes, I am hoping he may ride the Gondola with me in spirit! 👻 Thank you dear Dusk. X

        There's delight in the air and a thrill
        Teddy's in venice with Will
        it wont be of course
        yer kingdom for an 'orse
        just turn in ya grave Willy, chill

        Othello is a Moorish prince living in Venice, as an ambassador of the Moors. After time in Venice, Othello is appointed general in the Venetian Army. His officer Iago tricks him into believing that his wife Desdemona is having an affair with his Lieutenant, Michael Cassio.

          Dear Neil, I always adore your commentary.
          I find it truly fascinating that Shakespeare wrote so many amazing things about Italy and Venice he never ever got to see it for himself, there are many many magical things to see and so much inspiration, I am truly beyond excited, thank you dear friend. X

            • Marie

              Thrilled that you can't stop smiling today. I rejoice with you, dear Teddy. Keep on smiling. A smile is the most beautiful adornment you could wear.
              It is amazing how much one can get into a concise write and it has worked wonderfully well in your adorable Senryu today. I love it and thank you for sharing with me, Teddy ☺️ 💖 Bless you always...

              Good write, Teddy.
              Venice is a joy for sure. We took the train over from Ravenna, just because was reason nuff. Mosaic Smalti is made there.

                    What? Don't you want to join me on the gondola? Me and you and some sweet fart perfume of the canals that Dusk speaks of dear orchi?

                            Dear Teddy,

                            Reading your ‘Senryu’ with its accompanying visual is making me a bit nostalgic. A gondola ride is a must…dopo un buon caffè accompagnato da una brioche.

                            Buon divertimento.

                            Laura🌻

                              Dear Laura, awe nostalgia, I know it well, actually from what I hear about the price of café "non sono sicuro che posso averlo sono una povera poetessa " 🤣🤣🤣🤣 thank you my dear friend, brioche and cafe I'm certainly in the right place where ever I have it. Grazie mille Carissima Amica
