Encounters in Holiday Time – Rodos or Rhodes

Encounters in Holiday Time – Rodos or Rhodes

For the lady in the markets

She seemed serious at first

But then helpful

Her face more concentrated, focused

Than serious.

“No, I’m not the boss

“I cannot make it cheaper

“But then maybe I can be boss.”

We joked then

About the responsibilities

Of being boss.

She may not have seen the subtext

That I have been a ‘boss’.

We chatted away about exchange rates 

Etcetera, etcetera

But focused on each

Her furrowed brow, strong eyes.

There was another subtext.

Might it be attraction?

Encounters on Holidays – Samos

Encounters in Holiday Time
(for Electra)
Smiling face

In a Samos scene

Her big eyes

Bulbous in welcome

Serving coffees and frappes with care


Allowing us her dream

To share

That she might leave the island 

And let the world faraway

Experience her welcome countenance.

There's a new sun burning, and soft fruits ripening, my precious grizzled tresses tumbling, Dylan's humming 'The times they are a changing', these parting verses are mere shadows merging ...

Daydreaming as a profession

Daydreaming and then, maybe, writing a poem about it. And that's my life.
