A View From My Mind - Poem by Roland Bastien

Tinkled – the Sundays’ bells
Brought by the wings

Flown beyond the dodge palace
With Corelli and

Landed on Lido beach
To graph a new sound.

Cars violated the sight
And lit purple butterflies
Over the ocean candles

A woman dressed white
Kissed the sky
And her eye lifted
The sound to the bells’ ear

I returned to Venezia left the sound behind
And stopped at the Guardini de la biennale.

Gregorian hymn from San Marco
Dropped
Into the stream water in flame
Memory.

Purple rains unease
The air

Sundays
Died
In peace.

    I like the pirouette, which the words make here:
    'Gregorian hymn from San Marco
    Dropped....(twist on the tiptoes)
    Into the stream water in flame
    Memory'.....(twist on the tiptoes again): well penned, with lightness

    Attractive and carrying away … somehow 'eloquent' fragments from a feature film …Thanks... (Report)Reply

    A nice poetic venture……with apt figures of speech, metaphors, allusions,
    her eye lifted
    The sound to the bells’ ear…very thoughtful metaphor making the scene sensuous, pictographic modern imagery…,
    no line is said directly but beautifully decorated in poetic diction…reminds me of the classical poetry…very well written
