Poetry Train Monday # 2 - Dreaming of Ellas
For today’s entry I bring you a piece written last April in preparation for our trip to Greece. Climb aboard Rhian’s Poetry Train.
Dreaming of Ellas
Dev came home with our new suitcase this afternoon. It is a colour eponymous with Greece: a vibrant, electric blue.
It is the expanse of sea and sky.
It is the painted wooden door of a white-washed home.
It is the hull of a well-weathered fisherman’s boat.
It is the dome of a small secluded chapel.
It is a bead worn close to body to ward off the evil eye.
This blue suitcase is our talisman, a keeper of family secrets and dreams.
