Pateras Potamos

Come to me Achelous

river without tears

Carry me distant

away from my fears


Direction is onward

Olympus bestows

 Hermes in orbit

directing the flow


At home in your waters

whose currents surpass

Defining my history

from first to the last


Your torrent unbridled

the eye of the storm

I drift in your motion

—alive and reborn
