Maria Antonia’s photo challenge includes a prompt for “transportation.” My late wife was, and I am, great lovers of waterways. We spent many a holiday just enjoying the experience of watching the world go slowly by, whether one the great ship canals such as the Kiel, or the ringed waterways of Amsterdam, or the gentle passage through Norfolk’s Broads. The photo above is of one of her favourite passages in Venice.
Not every roadway is made of soil,
Not every element is earth,
Transit need not give legs toil,
But ride easy once you’ve slipped from your berth.
