Tomb of the Eagles

approaching the Tomb

look out, away, beyond
a very modern entry with trolley for pulling
along the entrance tunnel!

Gulls scream in the brightness
Beyond the stacked stones,
And here,
It is no longer dark,
Three shafts in a concrete cap
But under the stones,
In the corners and the cavities,
The silence remains, until
One breathing fills the space
With sound
Where five thousand years slept quiet.

leave quietly, noticing the small things
