santorini sunrise
all blue & golden
hear the birds in the brush
wildflowers catch the rays

ancient islands
in the dressing room
red blue green & golden
lines of water on the sea
the aegean has her way

awaken to my wife
out on the balcony
all quilted & gorgeous
catching a rising sun

hail a cab to firo stefani
sped up dangerous over crest of hill
dropped in white walled miasma
atop the island caldera
mountain views from on high
white villas creeping up
down the ridges
as the fog spills over

a ring of fire
ring of islands
ancient lava cone in the center
blue blue aegean
an unfurling blanket
frosted with the snows of mount olympus far to the west
like zeus’s holy eye

rembetika music floats
from the village
white houses reflect
in the sea down below
fishing trawler plies the inlet for a catch
sun shifts down around
away
