in croatia

on the trail of
saints and poets,
a song, lingering
along this old coast,
pulling together threads,
ruins, saints, relics, something
in the wind

walking through this
world of water with
a prayer for all beings
waterfall mist
waterfall breeze
ducks in sunlight
worshipping -
who is the goddess
of this place?

(Plitvicka National Park)

fog and rain
on the Croatian coast
lightning over the water
somewhere birds are on the move -
we pray to Saint Euphemia,
her relics, lion and a wheel,
somewhere, a brighter day -
