thoughts of Italy . . .

thoughts of Italy . . .
*

there seems no colour at this time
when I think of Italy and how normally sublime
for light and colour and beauty everywhere
now I just want to stand and stare . . .
out to sea and gather my thoughts
of so many places visited and all of those those ports . . .
where met by friends and us sharing such fun
my heart breaks at what has now begun
the search for loved ones goes on and on . . .

*

photo from archives but reminds me of standing here
looking out to sea on the day that I lost my best friend,
memories . . .

Eine Tragödie.
Gut zu wissen, dass dieses Mal die Hilfe gut organisiert ist.
Ein schwacher Trost!

it is increasingly difficult for them to reach some places
and where it is total devastation ... how terrible it must be
for everyone and a feeling of helplessness ...

Eine schwerer Schicksalsschlag. Italien liegt in einem Erdbebenzentrum. Bei meinen Wanderungen in Mittelitalien kam ich immer wieder durch Dörfer, die durch schwere Erdbeben in der Vergangenheit in Mitleidenschaft gezogen wurden.

Indeed I have also been in some of the areas that are affected by these quakes and
seen and been quite close to the mountain range affected ... a frightening thought !

Where grand times were once had,
The country of Italy is now sad.
May Italy rise from the terrible rubble,
And enjoy a long season without such trouble.

I have a friend who is traveling to Italy in early September.

Yes, the atmosphere in this picture is somber, yet it is the type of moody black and white picture I have long been drawn to.

Sadness and despair
villages beyond repair
we can only watch with dismay
listen to reports and what they say
each day more after shocks
more heartache as the clock tic tocs !

An understated, gentle even, poignancy to your image and description

beverleyplaya has replied to David Michael
I hope so David, I remember taking this picture at Maske and looking out to sea
when my friend Ros died . . . I associate it here very much with her . . . and turning
it to black and white I noticed the cloud formation in the sky appeared to be like
the Bay of Naples ,,, with Vesuvius .... thoughts !

Magnifique et pourtant nos pensées sont tristes pour nos amis Italiens.... :-(((

beverleyplaya has replied to Régis Desailly
yes indeed sad at the tragedy still unfolding day by day ...
I have many Italian friends that are relatively close by but
so far all are safe . . . I hope all will be safe and their families
and friends also .... but my picture and cloud formation reminded
me of the Bay of Naples and looking towards Vesuvius in the
clouds .... association of ideas of course . . . (((
