You can see the Island of Crete from this ruin. Gorgeous view down. I remember kinda wishing I had some color Fujifilm perhaps, just for the sea’s fantastically luminous bottle-green embrace … but no.



 ~ a winter window

weakly thrashing, bony limbs
under the ministrations
of a light which provides no heat.

frozen rain falls steadily
bitter weeping melting flat white knives
into the tools i will use to stay alive
when all the tears are gone.

watching the weak, half-hearted
tossings and
turnings of a
slow, cold
