Remembering Cyprus!

February 17, 2017
SUN

“A paradise in the sun!”

We spent another two weeks in Paphos in early December. It was lovely to feel the sun on our backs!

On this cool, yet sunny day

Far from England, frosty shore

‘Contemplate sun’s warming ray’

Ageing limbs cry out for more!

 

Eve approaching, falling sun

Bathes the ocean with its light

Wagtails playing, having fun

Feast my eyes, a wondrous sight

 

Like a glowing football shine

Warm the pool, with leaves so full

England rains, yet here still fine

Night falls fast, my heart-strings pull

 

As this orb melts in’ the sea

Shadows falling on the pool….

Add an air of mysteree

To this ev’ning calm and cool

 

Final splash of colour bright

Sea extinguishes the flame

Sky it yields to ghostly night

Whispering Creator’s name!

 

Sun… Return to warm my bones

Soothe me with your fingers’ balm

Lead me to world’s peaceful zones

Far away from stress and harm…    Next Day…

 

Sipping Leon with my friends

Fine tavern, mirth and food

Sunshine here, it rarely ends

So relaxed.. my Cyprus mood!   For all our Cyprus friends xxxx
