I can feel
The blue sky
Rub between my fingers,
And the taste of the yellow
Sun on my lips.

potters_workshop_400The leaves rustle
And the soft earth
Sings to me
And the cool breeze
Kisses my face.

At night,
The moon glows
And illuminates
The cosmos,
And I stare at
The stars in
Wonder like
A child.

The long
Summer days
I measure my life
On desolate beaches
With hot sand running
Through my hand to
The sound of the roaring sea.

Like a wooden hulk
Weathered by time
Washed up on a beach
That creaks and groans
With the seasons
I absorb life in solitude,
Filled with the richness
Of the galaxy
And constellations
And stars,
And blue sky
And oceans
Swirling in
The primordial
Soup of my
My being.

I exist only for now,
Only for this moment;
Absorbing this
Ephemeral life
To be imprinted
Into my soul
And transmuted
Into the memory
Of the world.


With a digital drawing from Nikos Laios
