GRECIAN MIRAGE (Greece, Summer 2006)


I saw the glare

in the water

of the sun

In the island of Rhodesof the sun

 

I thought I saw

an island

and its town

with the white houses

 

It must have been Erota

luring me with her

olives and her wine

 

Mountains that I imagine

where there is only

Aegean sea

 

That only stand

in the maps

of my own heart

 

unknown to sailors

and fishermen

 

This is my Greece

 

The Colosus

that lured me

from Ibiza

into Paris and Piraeus

into Ios and Korfu

 

Swinging in the

parks of Rodos

with a red flower

in my hand

and the Greek boy

riding away

in his moped

 

The words I heard

in Mykonos

as I turned

towards the sun

POLI ILYA

 

the ancient tongue

discovered

one more time

 

THELO

THELIS

The language

and the land escape

of Desire

EPITHUNIA
