Caffè Florian's grand drapes
along the Procuratie Nuove arcade
are not yet drawn all the way
absorbed in taking pictures of
- whom else? - themselves
Another Early Bird
marvels at the splendid emptiness
of early morning's Piazza San Marco
Piazza San Marco
Valentine's Day 2014
I am still here, in Vienna,
but I felt like dreaming of Venice.
I took these pictures in late August of 2010.
I was on my way to Geneva
and stopped overnight in La Serenissima.
Rising at first daylight, I took a long walk
in the early morning breeze
