THE SEA

THE SEA

In two days
three hours on the friendly sea

Back and forth from Mykonos to Delos
past rocks with good seats for sirens
rocking in a cradle still rocking
since the gods were young

Feeling the wake of the island
where she floated invisible in the mists
before finally agreeing to dig in her feet
and challenge the jealous Hera
providing Leto a birthplace for the
ever grateful Apollo and Artemis

Feeling their blessings
