Visiting The Parthenon

Grazi and Michael wove their way up the Acropolis hand in hand through the crowds of tourists. They had a dare….who could get the most photos with the least people in them. Michael took crazy angles and Grazi chased shadows and sunbeams.

Ars Poetica

ARS POETICA

                             for Archibald MacLeish 

    

it was Greece

so easily

opening my eyes

I want you

come

climb through my petticoat

white curtains billow

cerulean oceans

somewhere between these

lips petulant vortex

pressed palm of my hand

the love line extends off

infinitely becoming

there is a point

immaculate

between your breasts

where harmony overcomes

angels fly from my fingertips

gently along the crescent of your sleep

give me your hand

its already too late

our eyes flashed

locked

gave us away

even ordering wine

is impossible without you

come

come run away with me

come

all night long

the full moon spoke

words of love

to her little stars

whispering

this is a female constellation

Street Life, Athens

IMG_0785.jpg

Grazi and Michael always stopped in Athens before going island hopping. She loved the street life. She loved the Plaka and the Monastiraki with its flea market stalls. Grazi welcomed the sun warming her bronze. Everyone speaking greek to her. She always answered in such a silly mixture of broken greek, italian and spanish. Michael’s patience would melt as he began to sweat and pink up. He always refused sunscreen. They would find a table in the shade and drink ouzo all afternoon. He would be placated. She would be drunk on love and geography.

 

Sunset @ Cape Sounion

This is the Temple of Poseidon in Lavrio, Greece. It is said to have one of the most beautiful sunsets in the world. It was a sunset to watch and take in to your soul, not just to photograph. Sometimes, I don’t photograph events like sunsets or full moons. They are meant to be enjoyed. They are meant to change your life, not to be viewed through a piece of tech. It felt very sacrilegious to be playing with my tech in the presence of the achievements of the ancients. IMG_8513.jpg
