Golden Thread Cyprus,
Crusty brown in the winter;
Flourishes in spring.

Relax and Reflect
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 we expect.

The sky at night 'tis a wondrous sight
The sky at dawn can be sheer delight.
But the one that I can never forget,
That momentary beauty of a Cyprus sunset.

Premium Member Fog Bound


Fog bank

Shrouded cliffs


Cyprus trees lean inland against their will

Moisture drips like tears from sodden branches

Lichen on rocks

Seagulls swoop

Waves pound

Lost Hope
On the plight of this garden till when to grieve
Will this nest ever its glory retrieve

The companion birds are all flown away
O cyprus trees and roses! Permit me to leave

(Influenced by a Rubai of an eminent Urdu poet Josh Malihabadi)...

A long necked goose flies over Cyprus,
Then slowly disappears before us,
A sword now comes, straight and true,
It too vanishes into the blue
Mountains form and tumble down,
Faces appear to make us laugh or frown,
We lie here on this warm and balmy day,
Watching clouds form and drift away.

blood is red
under the cyprus
swirling starry night
night breeze impregnating
the warmth
thoughts of love
end of a journey
blood is red
black or white
yellow or brown
why do we
we who were
are the same no longer
my voice parts the wind
serenades her ears
tiny ring shining
in the vibrant stars
i hold her in my arms
and kiss her thoughts
at the bay of our lips...

Chilly Cyprus
In a land that boasts
You can be warm as toast,
Because the sun shines here,
Every day of the year.

Today the opposite is true,
My fingers are turning blue.
The heaters on high while I watch TV,
Bed is inviting it seems to me.

Sitting here wrapped up tight,
In a sleeping bag, what a sight!
Hot water bottle ready and hot tea too,
I'm off to bed before I get Flu!

Life In Cyprus
Life in Cyprus,
Idyllic I would suggest,
For each day is filled with 
Everything we hold dear.

Inspired by good friends,
Nice people we meet

Coming from all different places,
Youngsters, to our delight are
Pleased to sit and chat with us in the 
Relaxed atmosphere of the Taverna at night
Under the soft light of a
Star studded sky.

This is my Cyprus.

Life in Cyprus 2
                We've got flowers and trees and Bees that sting
                and quite a few other creepy crawly things,
                We got rocks and weeds,a little waterfall,
                And a nice place to sit and view it all.
                Am I homesick for England? Not one bit,
                I'm here until God says it's time to quit!

Premium Member Gap In The Leland Cyprus
Open the eyes of my heart
As open as the space
In the Leland Cyprus
Let the gap see truly thee

Open the eyes of my heart
Let the spirit flow inward
Filling to the overflow
Let me have compassion

Open the eyes of my heart
Let the spirit flow outward
With love, tenderness
Caring  and concern

Open the eyes of my heart
Seeing all the world's wrong
Spreading thy healing message
Love is the key for you and me

Wintertime in Cyprus
Days are short and nights are long,
We no longer sing the summer song.
As the nights draw in, log fires burning,,
Going out at night has lost it's yearning.
At home we can enjoy our meal,
Cooked in love, it has its appeal.
Both now sated, a glass of wine,
In front of the fire we rest supine.
The coldness of night,the warmth of day,
It is winter here and, each in its own way,
Is a Cyprus Delight.

Good Morning World
Clouds of grey, scudding by,
Moisture laden, may rain today.
Drifting by the wind doth sigh,
Nothing stirring 'cept the clouds on high.
Dogs come for a stroke and sidle away,
Just sitting and sipping my coffee,
Garden weeded, plants all fed,
Some more bulbs planted in a compost bed.
Sun now warming as dark clouds depart,
Deep blue sky and clouds of white,
Another day in Cyprus starts just right.

A Wintry Dawn
Woke up to a cold and wintry morn,
No blue sky, just a threatening dawn.
Clouds are low and a dirty grey,
Look full of rain ready to cascade today.
No sun to see to give us mirth,
Waiting for the deluge to water the earth.
Then, as I watched, to my delight,
The sun burst though, shining bright.
The clouds dispersed as the sun shone down,
Wiping away the mornings frown.

Another nice day in Cyprus.
