After the Deluge

here I am

over the moon

smelling the earth

in the air


  1. and everywhere,

    and everywhere --

    while it's

    still there

  2. You're right, Peter--thanks to Tom's booster rocket, my little capsule rises a little higher--

    A little further
    we will see the almond trees blossoming
    the marble gleaming in the sun
    the sea breaking into waves

    a little farther,
    let us rise a little higher

    --George Seferis, penultimate poem from "Mythistorema"
