La Dolce Vita


Our Writing 201 assignment is about Found Poetry where in I had to cut out words and phrases and arrange them into a poem. I made a word salad from pages 44-47 of Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert.
la dolce vita

I deserve something beautiful
I want the dolce vita,
I love the sweet life,
Some good lessons, personal victories,
The beautiful world.

I like to find a beautiful home
And perhaps speak a few separate languages,
To understand human emotions,
To find the most beautiful dialect ever spoken– love.

I will watch the sunset,
Walk down through the seductively beautiful cities,
Meet princes and intellectuals,
End a day laughing or playing,
Have any reason to be happy and feel contented

Most of all, be with and love God Himself,
I want so desperately.

  1. I loved that book – so many beautiful words in it. And you tied them all together so wonderfully. Side note – this was the perfect assignment for you. I always love what you do with the pictures.
