My dear spouse and

Best friend B:

You know me apparently

So well

Over 51years of staying


Having had our best times

In the first ten years of our

Relationship and then

Having experienced the

‘Dark Continent’ together

Enjoyed the lands and game

The colourful spectrum of

People and their varied fare.

Weathered many storms of

Outer and inner causes

Escaped in time the senseless

Slaughter of minority people

Women and children

Celebrated the poet’s Fine Art

Creations in Athens.

I thank you for leaving me

An artist’s free space and

The love of a Muse.

My dear B. This is in memory

Of peaceful togetherness

In a place pushed onto us

Thro’ political constraints

Yet we’ll endure.

Two strong-willed artists

Hungry for freedom.
