Unique Vacation

Written for:  dVerse Poets Pub - Haibun Monday:  September Song
(Guest host:  Xenia Tran)

"Create a haibun about September, and a special moment
you experienced or are looking forward to."

A September vacation that would be recalled and cherished
in my heart for years to come.  Four friends in Italy,
curtesy of a football pool win.

Around every corner, architectural wonders combined
with romantic settings.  One evening we celebrated
my winning friend's birthday in a simple, yet elegant
restaurant in Florence.  Our indecisiveness pressed
the chef to send out dishes of his choice–all excellent.
A Panna cotta for dessert melted on our tongues.  It was
a birthday none of us would ever forget.

     evening breezes
     cooling summer's end
     perfume the air


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
