Mandraki Harbour~by Jeremy J Croucher


Part 8 of 20 in ‘The Aegean Shores’ series

 

Mandraki Harbour

On Rhodes, the ancient city
build in medieval time
reflects the yellow of the sun
in every way, divine

Windmills on the harbour wall
once caught the southern breeze
Their ancient sails now still of course
beside Aegean seas

And in Mandraki harbour
where Colossus may have stood
I walked beside those windmills
because today I simply could
