Let’s Go Alfresco

Iris@poetsmith

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

watching

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

moonlit

reflections on the river

lovers stroll

holding hands

dreams are made of this.

Magic Sails

I watched the red sails

out on the ocean

in the warm glow

of the fading sun

soft ripples

glistening waters dance lightly

like ballerinas nimble

tiptoeing the ballet

Magic Flute

pirouetting, twirling

something dreamy

magical tranquility.

On Moonlight Hill

That Red Rose Café

on a high and windy hill

The magical fingers

of the Spanish guitarist

mesmerising diners

captivating hearts

He strummed and he sang

into the night …

and Into the night

the misty moonlight

peering through the window

The world stood still …

A Special Torte!

Smooth, luxuriously delectable

Rich and delicious

An excellent piece

of Sacher-Torte

Just perfect with

a hot black kaffee.

An enchanted evening

The scene is set

The drama

An expatriate

falls in love

with a beautiful woman …

He met her at …

But …

The story unfolds …

poetic journey of imagination

begins …

Majestic Hibiscus

Brilliant flaming red

tropical flower

of sun and rain

national flower

of Malaysia

symbolising courage

life and growth

celebrating this

Independence Day.
