Lost by Nikos Laios

Lost

The wind
Gently blew
The flowers
Out to sea
And I was
Lost.

desert_morning_400Lost with
The poppies
That scatter
In the breeze,
Lost with the
Berber tracking
Through burning
Yellow sand.

Lost with
Boots that
Splatter in the mud
On treks through
Foreign lands.

Lost with
Smiling maidens
That gather in the fields;
Among the heather
And stretched
Taught leather,
And playful
Coloured
Feathers.

I was lost in those
Green sparkling
Emerald eyes,
Delicious thighs
And gladdened sighs
That travelled up to
Heaven like the
Tendrilled curling
Fingers of smoke
That rises from
Wrapped fat
Thigh bones of
Cows and sheep
Over licking
Flames that
Were sacrificed
To some ancient
God.

I was lost
Among the
Columns,
Splintered
Rocks and
Bones,wreathed
In ivy splashed
With daffodils
And poppies,
Among the
Centuries
And silent
Solemn years
And mournful
Crystal tears
That rises from
Some soulful
Mournful dirge.

The
Washing
Surge
That scatters
Debris out
To sea.

I was lost;
Lost among
The cruelty,
And the vice.

Among the
The chaos
And rolling
Dice.

Then I
Was found;
Marooned in
Your cherry
Lips,and
Soulful
Summer
Hips.

Wrapped,
Embraced
In your arms
Like some
Galleon held
In the deep,
Clutched
In the salt
Encrusted
Fingers of
The sea.

Finding
Salvation
Where there
Was none;
Finding life
Where there
Was death.
