Ischia~by Paul F. Lenzi

“Porto d’Ischia” – Artist Unknown – From pinterest.com

outpost of Aragon

pirates and princes

prevailed among

graben and horst

heirs to the tribes

of a volcanic race

perpetual summer

engulfed by blue

indigo waters of

haphazard history

settling itself in this

modern millennium

loath to abandon its

deep-rooted tangle

of cultures imbuing

its vigorous worship

of timeless antiquity
