Escape: Wandering, Dreaming


Sit beneath an awning and eat a leisurely lunch 
beside the sparkling waters of the canal.

Watch the seagull posing prettily.

Watch people settle in to gondola seats
and be propelled along the waterways
by a striped-shirted gondolier.

Enjoy the view from the bridge.

Wander in the marketplace and imagine 
what a feast you could prepare, 
if only you had access to a kitchen.

Okay - I'll admit that I don't have a clue
how to cook these or whether I'd like their taste,
but they're so pretty!

Stop to look in shop windows

examine possibilities

imagine yourself in costume,
pretending to be someone else,
escaping who you are if only in play.

Watch evening fall and
dream of staying in this magical place
just a while longer.
