Rhodes (aka ‘Mandraki Harbour revisited’)~by Jeremy J Croucher

4 of 12 in “The Bucket List” series from Jemverse


Rhodes (aka ‘Mandraki Harbour revisited’)

On Rhodes, the ancient city
built 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
