Strange circles 

I’m falling asleep

Double domed cave 

Ulysses was here 


Bats cry 

A cloud of black 

Rare species 

Breaks out from the past

Disturbed in the dark 

Shrieks and wing flaps

Echoes fill the enormous gap

In the heart of the mountain


Ulysses, come back!

Guide me to Circe 

With your swine pack 

The sea penetrates 

The rock split in half

By Zeus’s own lightning 

A mythical strike 


Seek out the path 

Shine a trembling light 

Crystals and fossils 

And there

In the dark 

Strange circles remain 

From a long lost past 

A path leading up 

Toward the light 


Ulysses was here 

Homer was right

    I must admit I was inspired by the actual discovery of Ulysses’ cave - thank you for your feedback!
