  • A Poem: In Delphi (1987)

    Here the sea is caught in the mountains

    and the wind in the olives

    the bird suspended in the sky of joy

    for a moment, like eternity

    <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

    Here where the gods walk on the hills

    with their mighty legs set like

    temple columns

    we tracked our way my friends, into the myth

    the breath of time which whispered in our ears

    the fables of earth’s childhood

    we walked on ruins

    which are stones and stories today


    A poem was flowing down the cliffs

    of my mind

    I allowed her to flow

    to flow so slowly and softly

    that my life may not ebb away-
