Day Fourth

The Luminous Light of Greece
                                                for my son david

just shy of seventeen you traveled to greece and fell in love, not with myths, not with the sea, you fell in love with the light—that luminous light that touched you and burned red hot 
you sought light all over the world, in the photographs you took of tibetan herdsmen, in the art done by maori artists with a foot in traditional art,  in the folk art of an artist who painted scenes from the bibical book of revelations
you collected indigenous art, illuminated each piece with words 
you sought the light in the universe and found shards wherever you went
