island morning

            The light of Greece opened my eyes, penetrated my pores,

               expanded my whole being.

                       Henry Miller The Colossus of Maroussi

 

 

tuned to the ring

of crystal glass

the light sings

 

with a clarity that might

in a moment

shatter the brittle air

 

a single note

held

 

beyond the fall

of breath
