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

<o:p></o:p>

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-
