In Santorini

Beautiful Greek churches shimmer in sunlight
patience is required to get that shot
without revealing the throng of hungry tourists
amassing from the cruise ships

The real jewel of the island
rises and falls
into the sea
twice a day
a golden pearl
just out of reach

A room with a view
like no other
life on the edge in Santorini

Near-sighted photographers
having lunch in quaint Greek villages
should remember
to put their glasses back on
before focusing

Resplendent flowers

on the stairs

and on the roof

S is for Santorini
not my favorite Greek Isle
but beloved by so many
Its little adobe abodes do remind me of
my little house
in old
Santa Fe

ABC Wednesday
is at Mrs. Nebitts place
