north to rome – by pd lyons from Morning Movies

we took the train north to Rome
started with sweat and bullets
wishing for a better meal next stop
village by village dust bells along
following the steady steel rhythm

hours drift lulling with common motion
 landscapes we have come to know
keep pace as we imagined
being closer than we ever were
before leaving

Reggio Calabria

    Thanks. This brought back fond memories of our Italian sojourn, but one should enjoy quite frondly the countryside between Rome and Pisa, especially those wide fields of girasole. Keep well and God bless.   e/s
