BONES OF BYZANTIUM - Trici
Boukoleon Snow ©2008 by Trici Venola.  Boukoleon Palace, City Walls, Sultanahmet, Istanbul. The first snowfall in my new apartment, and me propped up on pillows drawing out the window in a delirium of creativity, the air outside white and muffled. The marble posts and lintels visible through the arches from the other side still remain from when the Palace was built, right on the Marmara Sea, in 817 CE.
