A Taste Of Greece

A Taste Of Greece prose poem

Photo by wallygrom

Skies of bright blue
Seas of Emerald Green
All the colours of the rainbow in between

Blue and White upon their flag
Bright purple flowers on sandstone coloured walls
The sands are white and dark in places
The fields are green and brown in traces

The sun shines gold on the streets
The music plays a very light beat
People lounging on the sands
Goats free to run around

Markets in the mountains selling products homemade
Monastries look as though their falling down, needing to be saved
Cash is the currency, please don’t offer card
Locals don’t trust banks as to remove their cash can be very hard

Harbour renting boats out to Shipwreck Cove for the day
Put on your Captains Hat it’s yours for the day
Or let someone else take you, let them take the strain
As you sit and sail basking in the sunshine admiring the blue caves
When you return to Port use the sun loungers, snorkel in the bay, the perfect end to another perfect day

Bars and restaurants and pubs all in a strip
Offering traditional food and drink, some offer Greek Music and Dancing with Fire
Some offer Sports on TV’s at the bar
You can guarantee you won’t need the car, 10 minutes walk from your Hotel and you will see a plethora of choice to satisfy your belly, whilst singing karaoke or watching the Tele

Whatever your choices, the Greek’s love to welcome you and see you happy
So have fun drink lots, eat lots and be merry

Finer Taste

Finer Taste short poem

Higher than clouds, A voice beckons loud, Shouting incoherent statements, Clouding its own sentiments. Down here vibrations resonate, In well traveled ears they commemorate, Aggressive tones without grace, Screaming on shriveled yesterdays. Voices screech after enough, When deafly righteous is
