Making Memories
We watched motionless as gulls took flight,
Our feet embedded in sand just short of the sea,
A merciless sun beat down on our already scorched skin,
Our fingers entwined there was no need for words.

We were free just as the gulls that...Read More

A Girl Named Sadie Sue
There is a girl I know,
A work of sheer perfection head to toe.
Each time I think of her, my heart beats so,
And her name is Sadie Sue.

She has a pair of eyes
That are bluer than Aegean skies,
And there's a hint...Read More

moonlight and Plankton in the Aegean

Moonlight and Plankton in the Aegean

Near a beach in Amorgos
Kycladic moonlight
	lilting off
	waters illuminate 
the breasts of two young girls and
Plankton playing off back-lit silhouettes...

Our ketch undulates according to
The laws of Poseidon
While youthful want-to-be mermaids
Frolic and scatter bio-luminescent
	diamonds with every...Read More

There once were mermaids hailing from Crete
The Aegean Sea they'd rule so sweet
        They'd enchant with their chant
        Dull the rant when heard "can't"
For them not...Read More

The Belly Dancer

Learned private lessons in a club
in Chicago's Greek Town.
Her teacher told her,the bigger the
dancer....the more beautiful.
Being thin was no attribute to see
that skin roll!
When she finally saw a woman of girth
dance, it was like watching the Aegean 
She was...Read More

Premium Member A Midsummer Butterfly Song, All She Wants

In any weather, be it sun-kissed
or intensely stormy,
Is to find residence and warmth in the incandescent,
encircled arms of her loving honey!

His olive-skinned arms encircle her
like stippled gold giant butterfly wings.
His citrusy, warm breath,Mon Dieu,
makes her body shudder and sing! 

In this forever...Read More

See where it burns in Titian's brush
subsides along the cool Aegean stone,
or twists in the fist-faces of Rome,
our only mystery--flesh.

There, uncertainty ends, or does it merely pause?
The surgeon's knife reveals a shadow
no surface contains, our laws
are not what we do...Read More

Cerulean Ecstasy

With my mind trapped in the deep crevice of blue
I travelled across barren landscape’s depression
to the scenic aegean beach of the cobalt sea 
as the cold sun sank in serene indigo splendour
down the steep gradients of the lapiz horizon
in the...Read More

violet evenings,
aegean seas,
dancing flames,
could have prepared me 
for the beauty 
of loving you. 

painted by our love
on a canvas of us. 

and as my eyes fail,
and my mind fades,
my heart sees you
my heart remembers you
my heart loves you....Read More

Premium Member Summer Blues
With summer heat
you wonder why the heart is artic.
Cerulean days stand there in longing
but only fade to denim moods.
On indigo nights, soft eyes wander
through parks where navy planes
once sought aqua places to fight 
Aegean Wars
as maya has become midnight

O Aphrodite,
Grecian fertility goddess
Matriarch idol of the womb,

heard in the echo chambers
of the caverns along the Aegean sea

Dwindling cries, dashed on the rocks
in luxurious maternity wards,
are slowly dying

Cerulean Serenity

Time stood still with me
on aegean beach at tiffany twilight hours,
the cold sun sank in admiral splendor 
beyond  the lapis horizon,
the cobalt sea soaked the cyan sky 
ribboned by periwinkle cloud
blown by aquamarine breeze.
You came flying on its sapphire...Read More

Premium Member Parthenon at Midnight
The harvest specter
of Artemis levitates
in midnight sky
beyond a temple's frail bones.

Her aura imbues the marrow
as haunted zephyrs breathe imperial runes
culled from quarries
in the scintillating saffron 
emblazoning Apollo's halcyon.

Atop graveyards of heroes
pillars weep dry pebbles to Aegean eminence,
from Alexander's subjugated Persians
to...Read More

I, an umber fisherman,
on this bamboo raft
like a dragonfly
over the aegean river.
The gods below
cast reflections
of their salmon sun, 
in orchid sky
before indigo palms 
and spruce mountains
a mute kingdom,
onto my blank 
porcelain world....Read More

Blue is natural in its beauty.
It can be icy like the Arctic
or calm and stately like a spruce.
Blue is deep like the Aegean; indigo,
or cobalt, stark against the snow.
Blue is splendid ink painting twilight skies
or robin eggs, cornflowers and butterflies,

Une Barque Sur L'ocean
The sparkling melody mirrors the waves
Of the peaceful Aegean Sea.
With notes floating to my rousing mind,
Sailing boats is all I see. 

With winds flowing, boats sail forward
Towards cliffs of jagged rock,
From the town on the bluff I watch
Boats drift towards...Read More

I gaze in awe at this beautiful setting;

In teal sunset
Gerberas whisper cyan secrets
jade eyes already misty
with turquoise tears

In daisy diaspora they have germinated

of azure empires

Is it a new phenomenon,
Known to the world
Through Beckett and Camus?
Sophocles long ago
Heard it on the Aegean.

Oedipus, Bhartrhari, Buddha—all,
Over a period of intense suffering,
Learnt to cope with it,
Each resorting to a different praxis.
King Dasaratha perhaps thought 
He knew—until a moment...Read More

Majestic shades of green

Hunter greens edging into the forest hues
   blended in jaded moss clusters pacing;
shamrock stepping stones low upon the grass,

minting limes...Read More

 Blue can be icy like the arctic.
Cold yet passionate in its own way.
A blonde boy’s light blue eyes enticing,
A sleek Corvette hugging the highway.
Blue is natural in its beauty.
Azure or teal seas upon the earth.
Slate of graying days and sapphire...Read More
