POSEIDON’S DOOR’S WIDE OPEN



“What you search for you have found,”
        the prophet said to me,
“You don’t know it yet but you will see;
That elusive place called home
        you so deeply need
Will appear when you attain 
        tranquility.”
*
Across the brazen sands
Beyond the forests of the deep,
The Gates of Hercules reopen 
        once again;
*
Sailing to the Hesperides
Where prized apple trees
        stand
And a tossing golden bough
 Throws shades upon the 
          strand.
*
It is just before the full of the moon,
These are the nights I cannot ever
        sleep.
Heavy gusts of wind
Blow westward off the lake,
Memories of loved ones parade
        past me in my sleep:

Poseidon’s door’s wide open 
        and I see
The stuff of dreams and distant
         fabled seas,
A palace in the riverlands,
         pyramid to the sky
Across the Nile and through
         vast distant sands.
