We sat down in an Italian restaurant tonight, and I looked up at a photograph of  the  view from our apartment in Vernazza.  This led to reminiscing about the lovely town.



I dream Italian nights

above your breakwater

and the good-night chimes

of the church bells.


(Here’s a sample posted to Youtube.  I loved listening to the 9 p.m. bells.  Not so much the morning bells! lol  Such a beautiful place).

    love your poem – and I miss the church bells now. When I was a child you would always hear them on a Sunday morning, calling the faithful to worship. Now you never seem to hear them in NZ
