Deep Sea Diaries, August 2013

Standard

*

.
sitting on warm steps
on a summer night
at a church entrance
I did not visit
.
ahead is a gulf
lit with tiny lights
trees of different kinds
breathing in twilight
.
inside is a river
restless and charged
I try stillness in vain
nature comforts me

.
explain to me
why at the bottom
of the church steps

.
is a mosaic of round stones
depicting a white star with

eight points pregnant of a smaller one

.

ahead is a rusty cross this one
is pregnant too of a smaller cross

.
then a lamp stands lit

a crescent moon rising in the sky

.
Venus has fallen among the city’s
lights

.
the small land
where all the bones
lie has a wall of stone and concrete

.
if I stand on the north side
I can see little roads among
graves and rooftops of small chapels -far away

.
south the sea enclosed
in its gulf a whole cloud of tiny flies

in front of the eyes to disturb my view

.
to remind me of inevitable decay
behind me the sky clouds are sparse
light and filled with sunset hues

.
and the town wall -the town of
the living – I make sure to say
has a big boulder fallen off

.
with several small stones
on the street where cars drive

.
the church has scaffolding
except in the front

.
