Andalucía

Comfortable flats and broad brimmed hats
Beach women bask beneath azure skies
Young girls shimmer in silky poses
Some wear shells from the deepest seas
You can see Africa on a clear day

Strange tongues whispering on the breeze
Dead bird bones bleach in the midday sun
Shabby old men sit smoking with
Faces like the bark of old olive trees
Ancient mountains watching over

Stepping over scorching sands
Seeking shade from the relentless sun
Vivid blue meets earth on the horizon
Hungry eyes dine on the visual feast
This is a land of ancient beauty

Gentle breeze comes in off the water
Birds swoop and dance while the
Patient fisherman stands alone
This is a land of ancient beauty
You can see Africa on a clear day

… Lenny 8th June 2007
