And My Poetry


Florentine Stars.

Stars, seven sisters, gaze into oblivion.

Millions of ages go by…

Venus says, shine a path for her,

and points.

Seven sisters look to earth,

to Florence,

to Mercato Centrale,

to Mercato di San Lorenzo.

She’s drinking Spritz at her local.

She’s watching leather merchants

wheel their portable market stalls to overnight digs.

 Personal creations for you, poetry, art, video, by this local artist from Gisborne, Victoria. 


She’s watching drivers negotiate the narrowness.

She’s laughing at footy barrackers, yelling and cheering.

She’s thinking of her day..

visits to famous art houses,

Uffizi, Palazzo Pitti, Gallery Academia.

She’s dreaming of dancing,

with David,

so tall,

solid and handsome.

He hasn’t slain Goliath yet, 

so, what’s he so beautiful about, she ponders?

And coming around,

the solid, handsome, bronzed waiter is offering another.

What do the sisters say?
