Stairway on Mikonos

Stairway on Mikonos

looking up 
an old stair,

where dusty
tired feet
have worn
this path for
many sleepy
centuries,
 
in my shifty
memories,

i saw sunlight
bouncing, from
side to side,

making all
the ancient 
shadows
disappear,

for centuries,
they were on 
a pathway
to nowhere.


white walls
have so little
definition,

no shadows
make it so 
difficult
to see detail,

those wonderful
ancient stories.

unless, of course
there's nothing
there to see.

so difficult
to believe!
