Milos


Sleeping dragons and a roaring bear
Volcanic legacies and meltemi wear
Helios dancing twixt breeze-blown tamerisk
Pollonia my sandy bed one afternoon
A morning spent at Sarakiniko
Hand in hand walking on the moon
Klima's coloured boat houses
Sea-sprayed paintbox in the bay
Patrikia like a desert island
Micra paradise for the day
Paleochori's breakwater path of jewels
Alogomandra's cave mouth pool
Tourkothallasa aqua-floating chat
Ageri's Bruno King of the cats


Konda limani Adamas boulevard
To sit and smile at the promenade
Tavernas, cafes, rooftop bars
No finer way to while the hours
Tap your ouzo and take a drink
For those no longer in the pink
Then raise your glass to new friends made
Til those lingering farewells are bade.
