Summer In Rome - Poem by Guy Shaked

By the over flowing Tiber,
Walking slowly,
to the Turtles Fountain.
-

Looking at the Trevi,
Anita,
Is nowhere in sight.
-

The summer rain falls on the Trevi,
Tossing a coin at Oceanus,
Aiming between the eyes.
-

Sweating we arrive
To watch Triton sitting,
Under layers of dirt.
-

I take off my baseball cap,
Four rivers-
A new heaven?
-

Summer rain outside,
Inside Japanese tourists chatting,
In front of a silent Moses.
-

Drying up in the Parthenon,
I tweet on my cell,
What an amazing technology!

    A wonderful mix of modernity with the unavoidable tourism ativities of ancient. Rome.
