Haiku # 189

fresh scent of anise:

the pilgrim’s first recompense

then, a deep silence

    I’d love to visit all those Greek monasteries located in such isolated, hard-to-access places which, of course, was the idea, they didn’t want company! This one looks like it is just stuck to the rockface with glue!

      that’s right! I won’t say visitors are not welcome, but they really fight for isolation and silence. The building is out of view until the very last part of a long rocky path and it’s breathtaking! It’s glued to a vertical rock and overlooks the sea. Perfect, if you don’t suffer from vertigo!
