This poem describes Italy perfectly, it’s worth the read if you ❤️ #Italia too! PS: Who can relate to the last line?
. “I have fallen in love
With the air, the trees
The thinly paved and often cracked roads...
Old shopkeepers with hats and bifocals
Their calling voices…
I have fallen in love with espresso
And how it feels in my throat
The smell of leather
Taste of gelato
Harbours full of fishing boats
The sound of a vintage vespa
Weaving its way through a crowd...
And this is a country of which to be proud
I have fallen in love with the architecture
The vast and complex history
The more I learn the more I admit is a mystery
I have fallen in love with the way the sun shines brighter..
The air is fresher
And the fruit is sweeter…
And the books are cheaper.
I have fallen in love with the words they say
And how those words effortlessly roll off their tongues .
I breathe in their culture
And try to hold it in my lungs.
Pizza, pesto, cute cafes
Absence of anxiety, holidays
The tourists who view it all through a camera lense
Adventure begins and tension ends.... But most of all...
I have fallen in love with the version of me that comes out when I am in Italy.”
That comes out when I am in Italy.” #ArielBaptista Jun 2014
