Int the night a tribute to the jewel of the west

In the night
A tribute to the jewel of the west
By the Wanderer of twilight
I see all in this palace of wonder this proverbial palace of night, color, flesh, fantasy this city of water, and wine, of sumptuous feasts, and swirling color. The vendors and they’re wares, the artists and they’re maser-work, the maidens in silk and lace and satin, the men in bright velvet. The beauty of humanities achievements are all that is in Venice, were all is beauty, and majesty, the carnivals, and caravans the channels, and gondolas. The lazy warmth of this city but if we sleep it is only through delicious exhaustion through the movement of this city and all of its gifts. The arts of the world the power of beauty is alive in this city, in verse and view and music the senses are overwhelmed with it. The eyes, the ears, the nose, the skin there is pleasure for all senses this is the place were all artists come in one way or another in art or Spirit. The people are merry and the wine flows the people are friendly and the joy and fashion are alive and is life blood of the city. We are the ones who give and take this city is made from different people and what they give and what they take away. This city has a heartbeat the flow of the city this city has a rhythm we hear it and live as in an everlasting dance. Venice is the star of this whole continent of Europe. We live in grandeur and majesty but the city is what gives it to us. Such sights, such sounds, such tastes, such sensations that is a beautiful thing to be so stimulated at every angle it creates daydreams of this utopia in any other city. You can leave Venice but it will never leave you. The night is gentle here and even as we fall exhausted into the velvet and down of the bed deliciously tired. We are wrapped into the embrace of the bedcovers and the cool of our pillow after the soothing heat of the magnificent baths, and the incensed smell of the dried flowers of the baths steaming waters the entrances us further into exhaustion. The last wine of the day slides down your throat so smoothly as if the water of life the city’s goodnight kiss then your eyes close and you dream of your travels in this sparkling palace of the night nestled in her embrace.
You hear her voice singing you to your dreams.
Author's Notes: this was a tribute I did to the gem of Italy a place of beauty and water of pleasure art and music and a place that might not be there much longer I hold venice very close to my heart as one of my past homes
