How I miss those Monday walks in Cyprus with Donald and Mark!
S t a t u s W i n e A n d L e o n B e e r s
Through the mists of time I’m walking
Monday morning: happy talking
Going down that Steph’nie Hill
Heart with wonderment it fill’!
Tala Square, the place we’re meeting
Mark and Donald… warmest greeting
Driving to Vatouthkia Start (A favourite taverna)
Tractor pulling tiny cart!
Donkey braying, carobs feeding
Boots are laced, a long walk needing?
Small church passing, cloudless sky
Thinking of it, heave a sigh!
Lots of banter, three men joking
Birds that twitter, frogs are croaking
‘Soon arrive: “Adonis Baths
‘Blues have won.. the loudest laugh!
Aphrodite, silent, watching
Two hours more, and we’ll be “Scotching” (Grouseman!)
Old man sitting with his dog
Quite contented on his log
View to reservoir… inspiring
Doughty walkers, never tiring?
G.P.S. is working well
Hear the sound of “goatie-bell”
Water glistens, couple fishing
Walks like this I still am wishing
Thoughts of April, final walk
Chapter closing, sad the talk!
Now we’re climbing,, sofas, litter!!
All this hiking,,, ‘feeling fitter?
Sitting down to calming beer
Swapping this for Blackpool pier!
Thoughts of final poem.. I’m sobbing
Garden view, a tiny robin (Must be Cleveleys!)
Tears fall into Leon beer
From our friends a friendly Cheer!
Plane is leaving, lighthouse “waving”
Memories of friends I’m saving
‘Been in Cyprus many years
Status wine and Leon Beers! Pure nostalgia for me! D x x x x
