The heat clings to my skin
On a sultry Aegean evening
And the air is hot to breathe,
A soft breeze caresses my face
And the shade cloth billows
On the balcony like
The white sail
Of a yacht.

santorini_400It's sunset
And the
Entire island
Is silent and solemn
Clinging to the edge
Of the caldera
Paying homage
To the sun.

The sunlight is falling
Like gold dust scattered
From the wings of some
Ancient Greek god.

It dusts
The whole
Everything is gold, 
The earth is gold,
I’m gold,
Everyone is gold
And immortal
In the moment
Like the ancients.

I gaze at the sunset
Like those Minoan
Eyes must have
Of years ago,
And I share this
With them.

The gold sunlight
Seals this moment,
Seals this summer,
Seals my memories
Over the layers of
Ancient memories
In the red
Volcanic earth
Of this enchanted


With a digital drawing from Nikos Laios
