THE ISLAND OF SANTORINI, GREECE
(a little bit of heaven)
ABOVE THE PORCH THE FRONT DOOR INSIDE THE DOOR INTO THE BEDROOM
INTO THE KITCHEN THE TABLE THRU THE DOOR OUR PORCH
I felt deathly sick for a day during the week we spent in this lovely, little cottage, perched as it was, high above the caldera, in a jumbly, tiny town of white-washed white.
I have never felt as much as though I had died and was now in heaven as I did during that brief illness.
There were bronze curtain rods on the wall in front of me, forming a cross, with a window that gave me a view through the open door, and the blue caldera that stretched beyond.
I barely opened my eyes for endless hours, but each time they opened for a moment, the vision was there.
Then suddenly I was well, and the weakness itself seemed only a dream. The illness was less a time of discomfort than an ethereal visit to another world.
I hope you will read my poem, "A Lunar Month in Greece." It is one of the few really good things I have ever done.
