Venice - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Today the tide is low and city has the fragrance of mudflats. I love it though, I love everything about Venice, from the narrow alleyways to the many bridges small and large. The buildings are tall with arched windows and painted shutters. There are the cafe's and the street markets, the cathedrals and the boats. It's a place to walk about and explore, to get lost for a while and feel okay about it, wending your way home come evening time.
In the alleyway I can stretch my arms and touch the homes on both sides, these walls build so very long ago. They are not the straight perfection of the modern buildings in the newer areas, but each curve and flaw renders them more beautiful still.
