"And this too was Greece.."

First day in Byron Bay, Australia.
February 2012.
I love connecting travel to art and poetry.  Both powerful forms of expression harness how a new destination touches the mind, body, and an unfamiliar environment invigorates the the intellect is stimulated and the heart transformed.

Another Island

And this too was Greece: 
Water so clear
A jellyfish looked opaque;
Silence so transparent
A voice could scratch it
Like a pane of glass;
A long crescent of white sand
Where we found
Not a broken hand of Aphrodite
Nor a silver coin,
But small pink shells,
The rockrose
White as foam
Under the dark pines--
And across the translucent sea
Another island
Floating on a dark blue line.
