            Easter in Portugal

White walls,

 

Spring flowers

 

Blue skies,

 

Happy hours.

Good friends,

 

Naughty Teds,

 

Stray cats,

 

Comfy beds.

Flowery garden,

 

Green grass,

 

Stripey hoopoe;

 

Swallows pass overhead on flitting wings.

 

Hoopoe sings.

Fresh wind,

 

Bright sun,

 

Busy Strip,

 

Lots of fun.

Crashing thunder,

 

Splashing rain,

 

Dog’s bark;

 

Cat’s pain.

Fun for All,

 

Portugal.

In the Restaurant on Easter Sunday

Through the Window,

 

Small, squared pane,

 

Mist outside

 

and falling rain.

 

Bright camellias

 

deeply pink

 

frilly centres,

 

sipping drink

 

of dripping water,

 

falling rain.

 

Misty hillside

 

Grey again

 

Green leaves

 

White-petalled.

 

Soil and cobbles;

 

Roads not metalled;

 

Car still wobbles,

 

Lots of holes!

 

 

 

INSIDE

Squeaking chair feet;

 

Talking, laughing

 

Yells and squeals.

 

Shrieks of laughter,

 

Yelled delight behind my head;

 

Small child noise,

 

With loud child voice!

 

OUTSIDE

Mist returning

 

More rain falling

 

Grey sky back

 

Mist is swirling

 

Rain is thick

 

Gutter’s spilling

 

Water slick

 

Cold, grey, wet, green,

 

Water clean

 

Petals gleam.

    This literary form is really effective in conveying the essential fragrance of your Portugese experience – and the photographs as usual are terrific, Anne. A wee masterpiece, as we say in Scotland.
