Rhodos Garden

not far away,
from the seaside,

a garden grows under 
a row of old arches.


a mediterranian sun
warms this world.

a flock of tourists
may outnumber
the raucous gulls.


on the horizon,
distant shores

cause us to strain
our failing eyes.


i stare through
cataracts,
almost able to
see those islands.

and then these
vivid gardens
under the hot sun.


out in the harbour
a cruise ship awaits.


and looking back,
eight years have ago

i see the memories 
have faded but the
pictures help 
me remember.
