1.

awaken to filtered sunset
my love still sleeping
bird song out the window
coffee & pastries at the ready
spin some kinks on the wifi hifi
bust out some shoulder routines

outside athens awaits
temple of zeus
north slope of the acropolis
ancient shrines & spring wells
white city by the sea

the temple of zeus is immense in scope
gigantic pillars
how did they build them so high ?
only a few left standing
the rest in a tumble
the acropolis rising behind
backed by deep blue aegean sky

3.

we climb up the side of the acropolis
a narrow lane dotted with old houses
white churches
wildflowers
buskers play the blues along the mountain side
violins
guitars
clarinets
attica fans away unto
granite peaks
church bells
from down below

bells ring out
at six o’clock
greek sun climbs down the city walls
above it’s the parthenon
towering over the city scape
