Dinos Siotis

Sea Nocturne

Night comes
to the little island of Tinos
at the edge of time's flow
where the Aegean meets the Mediterranean
Fresh stars climb up the sky
a stealthy cloud
sends greetings to a breeze
searching for the ancient paean
A boat with no lights
has made friends with Orpheus
Some fishermen need a ride home
and the dolphins offer their backs

The moon has a hole
though which I can see
the missing sleep of your thighs
