Sunset Tango

Sunset Tango

A Poem by Ty

Sunset Tango

Atop gondolas
Or drifting waterways of Venice
Sentences played back, 
Past laps my memory will run.
And for a minute, sensation I'd breathe,
Meditation, asleep under the sun
With the inverted leaves shouting, "the rain will soon come",
Jaded from lack of sleep
And the weight between carrying pollutants and dreams
The clouds would cascade in a single file parade
Soothing and cooling the land underneath,
A tango of a splattered street and sheet rain.
My mind,
The lost city
And this opaque cloud cloaked subconscious
Or deep to me,
Dreams of Octopus tentacle reach
Oceans in cynical speech, uncensored, and mean.
I'd drift
I'd leave
I'd navigate straits away from chaos in search of peaceful and home
As I'm certain of uncertainty
The sunset will roam,
Until I've reached a meadow of Electric Violet Irises and Cadmium Red Roses
The dose of tranquil dove deeper
Further drowsy and dozy,
Yet cozy, so thankful I've reached the shore
This dream would speak peace and more.

Taking us on a little adventure are you? Well next time don't let me forget my bags!

Traveling your lands and waterways of Italy. Never been to Venice, but it sure sounds lovely, according to the paint you spilled out. First hand experience, or living the dream of dreams? A dream I would invade indeed.

Enjoyed your poem. Thanks for sharing.

A beautiful, deep, wild ride, taking me away from my world to help me escape into your words. Each line seems to open another profound passage.
