Many years ago we went to Southern Portugal to help a friend build a dyke at his mother’s little eco friendly holiday home in the Totenique valley. There were a group of us there, all mutual friends, and we had a very nice time with lots of late night, outdoor  meals, rabbling conversations and games of Settlers of Catan. There was a guest book, so I scribbled this into it and copied it down to preserve the memories.

Totenique
Sun sets softly
Behind green cloaked slopes
Olive groves whisper
Their susurrus
Caressing the ears
While fragrant smoke drifts
Leaving an impression
A peaceful place in the mind
November sunshine
