I was

The Nightmare
There's an empty space
When the tyranny
Sitting on a limb
The words are becoming
Left California

The swirling simplicity
I'm a separate

A Message

An Answer
And suddenly



The Winds of Crete

The Winds of Crete are
It sounds like a storm
          in the air
But the sun above is
The sky is placid and
The windmills of Crete
          are turning
The dust of Crete is
I’ve fallen in love
          with the feeling
                    of CRETE

The pace — the life —the
          people you meet
The music – the dancing is
          melodic yet strong
The movement of a people
          set to a song.
