Let’s Go Alfresco

To the trattoria

by the river

the harbour’s

bustling nightlife

restaurants galore

cosmopolitan cuisine


Just sipping

a café latte

or savouring

a wood oven pizza


the world go by!


Across the harbour

the bridge

brightly lighted up

and the view

of the magnificent

Opera House

catches the eye!!!


The summer night

full of life

starry sky


reflections on the river

lovers stroll

holding hands

dreams are made of this.

  1. Beautiful. Hello, Italy!


  2. My friend, you know how to paint pictures!
    You’ve just described a small water town that is depicted in my favorite movie.
    Nicely done. 🙂


  3. I can see the picture in my mind. Lovely, Iris.


  4. Iris, reading this was so close to experiencing it. Thank you for helping us have beautiful thoughts.

    Blessings ~ Wendy ❀


    • Thanks Wendy. Am glad you could relate to the poetic experience. My pleasure to share with you and others. Appreciate your time and lovely comment. 🙂 Love, Iris.


  5. How Great, Iris… The last stanza is truly beautiful…
    Best wishes to you, Aquileana 🙂


    • Thank you so much for your encouraging comment, Aquileana. The Sydney Harbourside is truly beautiful! I enjoyed the experience just mingling with the people in this cosmopolitan area. It has a casual and relaxing atmosphere and the view across the harbour is spectacular especially the iconic Opera House and Harbour Bridge in the evening. Appreciate your visit and time. Kind regards, Iris. 🙂


  6. I loved this poem – an exhuberant celebration of alfresco living. Bring on more of these great opportunities. Some day, Iris, we may even enjoy a cappuchino together in the out of doors.


  7. It’s such an evocative piece! Without a doubt, dreams are made of this!
