Don't Grow Old, Daddy
cyprus, dad, daughter, father daughter,
How could you get old, Daddy?
That's not supposed to happen
I'm your little girl
I can't see the stooped shoulders
I can't see the ravages of time, Daddy
Life is Short
cyprus, life, love,
it seems in just the twinkling of an eye
life passes by
and one's left at the brink
with time to think
before the fall
into the great abyss
I Tasted Summer
cyprus, sea, september, summer, sun,
I tasted summer…
It sure tasted good
I was dying for a sip
Of my iced coffee CHINO
Only in Cyprus…
My drug of choice
Crushed ice with sweetened coffee
My Christmas Gift to All Soupers
The Story of the Nativity in Rhyme
The night was cold, the journey long
The stars were shining bright,
As Joseph and Mary neared Bethlehem
On that wondrous night
A Lazy Day
cyprus, appreciation, home, sunshine,
Our jobs were all done yesterday,
Got up to a sunny morning today.
Breakfast done and dishes washed,
Another coffee and my comfy chair,
Just gazing about seeing what's...
I am SCARED
cyprus, how i feel,
Warnings are given
School schedules on hold
Echoes of years ago
Rushing to Jounieh port
Under cover of night
The harbor being shelled
Not even a cigarette
His Mediterranean Spell
cyprus, holiday, sea,
a patch of, alluring sea
the wonder of this buoyancy
the gentle waves, the searing sun
with all of nature, I am one
my aches and pains just drift...
cyprus, funnynight, old, beach, feelings,
They’re all ignored by us, but they have feelings too :
A black gravestone in New York, down in the world,
The Sun is Out Shining
I dare to hope and dream,
Of flowers that never fade
Of splendid and exotic creatures
All living in perfect harmony.
I dream of tranquil earthly paradise,

The Cypriots and Greeks have a few differences,
And can argue a great deal,
But both agree when it comes to ‘Kleftiko”
It has forever...

Gardens of golden threaded Cyprus;
evergreens perfume sings me halfway to sleep.
I breathe in the wafting scents of neighbor’s roses;
with elation my spirit weeps.

cyprus, age, appreciation, blessing, crush,
Sandstone erode into dust harks history's fade
Effected by events, weathered
Crept century torture administers eventual taint
Withered time drives incessant
Battered slate roof removed promotes damage
cyprus, confusion, corruption, life,
The flat evening
In the bowl
In the swing
In the sky
The gray air
A little shy
The white hair
In the morning
The beta blocker
In the evening
The scripture and prayer
I'm Going Away
I’m going away for a while
Life seems to have stolen my smile
Some of you I will miss so much
Maybe later we’ll get in touch
Canto XXVIII Hell translation part1
Whoever might with just free words beside
Speak of the blood and in full too of sores
Which I saw now, with a narration wide?
Any speech will...
Our Day Out

Went out today for a drive with a friend
We'll go into the hills up to heaven he said,
Round hairpin bends,o'er hill and dale we sped
My Persian Queen
cyprus, beach, body, care, city,
From the Gardens of Babylon,
to the walkways of Palestina,
to the grand temples of Jerusalism,
to the sandy beaches of Syria and Cyprus.
Went my Persian Queen riding,
Living in the Middle East
cyprus, violence, perspective,
You put him in a cage
That pilot you shot down
Pour gasoline on him
And set him ablaze
And the world is silent...
That seventeen year old girl
Shania Twain Drives me Insane- In the BEST of WAYS
cyprus, celebrity, identity, women,
That Shania Twain
Drives me insane
She croons out the songs, “In my Car”…..
My glorified feminist is “SHE”
The ferocious female hunter
She knows when to be feminine
Relax and Reflect
cyprus, life, retirement,
When the sun goes down in Cyprus,
And the heat of the day fades away,
Then it's time to relax and reflect,
Our life here is just what...
Gentle Hands, Calloused Hands
cyprus, caregiving, family, father, life,

Full of penny candy my father had purchased for me with a quarter

cyprus, conflict, peace, political,
When one makes viable peace
Between erstwhile colonial whites
And erstwhile colonized blacks
To the advantage of the whites
