Greece

Carpe Diem #978 Greece

Olympus' gods or the beautiful seas the surround Greece?  As a Jackie O fan I have to think of Onassis and yachts the size of a small town.   Olives, feta and Greek salads all rolled together into a delicious dream that smells of the sea.  It is the dawning of......

sugar cube houses
spilled across the mountain face
toward the azure seas
bleating in the green fields
goats need milking . now
