Three Rivers

I have been so lucky.

In my life I have walked La Seine.

So many times that I am unable to count them.

And that has been, in the third third of my life, the most important thing.

Of that third third.

Of my life.


But more recently I found the Arno.

Words won’t suffice.

So there aren’t any.


About the Arno.


Then, just a month ago, it became the Tiber.

La Seine is my favorite.

And the Arno is a demanding mistress.

I said that there aren’t any.


For her.

But there are:

She is so beautiful.

And so beguiling.

But then there is the Tiber.

She is totally unwilling to abandon abandon my reverie.

How Lucky I am.
