GREECE TOUR ECHOES 245: UNSEEN SCENERY

GREECE TOUR ECHOES 245: UNSEEN SCENERY

 

wake up with rigor

weak and lethargic to walk

sit and share the scene

 

sun has not risen

silhouette of moon behind

rising rays out shine

 

blue in sky and sea

silent serenity sails

waves unfold to shore

 

windmill by the pier

showy non rotating blades

good pose for selfie

 

booming tourists trade

souvenirs to wear and stick

solitude for sale

 

packed paradise beach

blare bare under umbrellas

unseen scenery
