AGUSTIN  MEDINA 
The Ionian Shores

While dreaming of a pathway bound by rainbows and delight I strayed onto The Ionian shores of lore There I saw haunting waves pounding black sands tangled eerie sunlight piercing foamy crimson water and echoes of pain wafting into the frigid air Some say Odysseus landed here on his way to Hades but Homer mentions it not Didoís lament was sounded here: Remember me, remember me, but ah! Forget my fate The Rivers Styx and Acheron pour into these shores I expected to see Charon at any moment beckoning from his boat to what end I know not I did not stay long in view of the intense stare of The Ionian shores I thought it wiser to return to more peaceful dreams

MARTIN JERVIS
Abandoned Chapel

(Pedda, Goa, India)
A white cross cleared The woodcutter chops the morning cool Green roofed banyan down. People have their backs to it Donít try to prick the progress bubble A reservoir of change pours out. A priestless congregation pray there Gathering but once a year And walking towards it
