independence day in greece
everyone’s out &
dressed to the nines
kids in traditional outfits
red blue & white
nonas all decked in
black widow shawls
the marching band march past
tubas, trombones a glowing
dressed up in red
piping patriotic songs
the town turns out
in glorious
hues

sun fall into blue white aegean
cyclades crowd around murmering lullabies
white windmill at a standstill
steeples
donkeys
yellow wildflowers
everywhere

that black cat comes to visit again
erica gives him milk from out the fridge
she laps it up
sits on our laps
one, and then the other,
kneading dough
we name him/her niko
she’s on the bed with us just now
having a bath
stars outside all quiet
lights of fira
firo stefanai
fishing boats
heavenly santorini
lone sattelite

orion peels overhead
