Ponte Vecchio

Day 29:  29th April, 29th Poem
Prompt: to use the idea of a bridge.


                                          Ponte Vecchio

Alone...
She walks out of Cretella's,
Most expensive Jeweller's on
The Ponte Vecchio bridge
Alone... as she wants
Ring given back
Him given back,
Each step lighter than the last,
Head held high,
Drinks in future possibilities
With each autumn breath.
New colour wraps her in  
Promise of adventure. 
She looks down the Arno River
Still,  blue, 
Reflections,
Like a painting,
Forms beautiful, but not real,
Was that how she was ?
Not  now,
Not now
No,
Now she  feels more than real 
If that can be.
Yes, that can be
And,
Now she  is free

I know this bridge! I had my students do a short story using this bridge and its cool features, like the jewelry stores:)

I visited Italy Sept. 2014. Needed more time in Florence, that's for sure. I like your poem. Thanks for stopping by my A to Z
