Sitting in the Square

A lone light post stands tall in the center
Cafes match up on opposite sides
  split by criss-crossing cobbled pathways
  holding people escaping from the mid-morning sun
  while sipping coffee and smoking cigarrettes

The light post watches many pass its shadows
  a bicycling blur
  slow-moving tour groups
  a young child escaping his mother

People watch people watching
  hats of all shapes
  skin of all colors
  languages of all sounds

When will my shade run out?

From Greek Trip - Kos
