Holiday Blog Day 7

Bread, cheese, black olives
Some fruit or a glass of juice
Cypriot breakfast

Ceramic blue eye
Hung in every doorway
To ward off evil

Lazy day by the pool
Reading, dozing underneath
Tree of idleness

Distant sounds I hear
Call to prayer, cicadas chirp
Goats being driven home

Flag ceremony
Armed soldiers, a marching band
Music from Flashdance

Sun sets, moon rises,
Silver light over mountains
Time for a last swim

National Treasure
All star cast, ludicrous plot
Strangely enjoyable

4 am taxi
An owl swoops in the moonlight
Farewell to Cyprus
