Poem subjects Submitted by Kada Uhara, (Booksie): A woman called Solange is on a gondola in Venice with Konishiki, a Hawaiian Japanese sumo wrestler. Theme: preferably on youth and the fleetingness
of beauty. But it can be anything you want. --- This what I came up with.

Ah, Venice,

The city of love

The moon is full

A church bell chimes.

A Gondola pilot

Pretends not to hear

Words he has heard

A thousand times.


But this couple is different

Both in looks and in size

A large sumo wrestler

With stars in his eyes.

The woman he's with

Is stunningly pretty

And she listens to his words

In earnest, without pity.


"Solange, my flower,

You are young, as I know,

But when you smile, light shines

Into the shadows of my soul.


Beyond youth and when beauty fades

My heart will still belong to you.

Now, can you find it in your heart

To always love me too?"

To Kada, JE is very difficult to outsmart.
And JE, you've taken the challenge in fine style again.
