Island of Glass

_____Murano_Island_2014a1Island of Glass

Beautiful glass,
on a little island
in a dismal swamp.

Such a hot day
on the edge of summer!
It sizzled.
I worshipped
gelatos
with my too-parched tongue.

An almost silent salesman
watching our admiration
of glass that shimmered
in our minds…

A whispered-almost
invitation,
to see special works
(upstairs by
secret elevator).

And suddenly,
a brighter world,
more colourful,
a truly special place.
He wasn’t kidding.
Highlight of Murano
(that secret gallery).
Our unexpected delight.
