Black rooster, master of waves, marine spray
foam harbinger of Aphrodite, rebirth
of Renaissance stirs the pot, sea in a kettle
water whirl of energy proves the metal
new order of Ecbatan, we hardly asked
to accept the new aeon happening.
Elysium of antiquity, happy dead walk ahead
as oceans and tides shake the shingles
“scudder of receding pebbles”
where many fresh ideas mingle, to stimulate
like a multitude of silvery smelt that surge
with surf upon the sand, to wiggle move
in spume, in presence of the moon.
