Caleta de Famara

The Famara cliffs look like

a sleeping mare with a wispy, cloudy mane

Or like two dragons side-by-side as siblings.

The noon sun strokes the scene with

lightening greens, the ragged shadow atop.

The lime-painted white village is

modern by comparison.

Surfers from around the planet

flock to this beach and

sometimes they roar within

the crest of a wave –

drowned out by the Atlantic.

Ah yes… I heard that Celtic crashing of wave on shore.


How I miss the roar and fury of Atlantic waves, Kim, more like village pond movement round my coastline! You took me there for a brief moment, for which I’m grateful. Trevor x
