Angra do Heroísmo cafe


Let’s start the New Year with a colourful cafe flying the Jolly Roger in Angra do Heroísmo, Azores.


The Colour of Dragons

The Cheesesellers Wife

The colour of dragons

Sweet green for new hatchlings
To hide in high grasses

Black and red for an Emperor
Or a burner of crops
Many turn as gold as their treasure
Perhaps part of ageing

What colour a city dragon
Lurking on rooftops?

In Paris, creamy white as the buildings
In Berlin and London
Perhaps a glassy hue

In Amsterdam?
Turquoise and purple
With scarlet undertones………
