Seagulls watching
off those cliffs
in Santorini

the beauty of heights

the wisdom of donkeys

A Grand setting
for grand things all

for tragedies
and tales of love

An old man
hauling the donkeys
among the cactus figs

An hour blue
as ever was

The music of the birds
the red of figs

The longest stairs
in all the world
paved by the donkeys´shit

over centuries

Centuries of old men
herding the donkeys
up the hill

of tomato crops gone bad

and sunny beach

  1. They are lovely donkeys, Carole. You are very good at donkeys I think you empathise with them. No, I know you do.
