Ilias Foukis - Greekshine Poem by SIMON ELLIOTT


Heal these islands Elias.
look out toward the flat seas
of the mediterranean.
There your inspiration must come.
The pleasant heat has been dropped to
hook a winter.
Dig deep into the columns of your spirit
and Write a piece for greece.
Bring back the abundance like
the sacred baked herb bread.
Like the tart olives and ripe grapes.
Like the oceans bounty and the
blessing in your words.
Elias Foukis bring greece back to the vital
epoch where democracy and philosophy
reigned as gods.
Continue to awe us with your epic
writing, let it be the medicine
to cure these sweet warm islands.
Before winter and the north insist on
 a scapegoat.
