Piazza San Marco
the snow falling
in my selfie
Issue 16.1 | 24 May 2016
The subject of many famous paintings, once called ‘the drawing room of Europe’ by Napolean, now the incidental background for thousands of tourist selfies.
lonesome . . .
I throw my selfie stick
in the canal
alone in Paris
the temptation to
photoshop you in
using the word 'in'
"the snow falling
in my selfie"
just gives it a whole other dimension. The word 'on' would have conveyed the same picture–Piazza San Marco, and a snowy day.
Choosing 'in' adds to the richness, as though the selfie is a box, and the falling snow is also falling in the box.
For those who don't know – Piazza San Marco is St. Mark's Square in Venice.
I enjoyed the haiku and agree with the word reply about the word, "on." It makes all the difference in the world. Thank you for all the haiku replies.
I wish to thank all those who left a comment: I really appreciate your feedback.
