An Old Monk

Islands in the Aegean,
lions stretched to rest,
turned to stone

riding high on the back of Patmos,
the Monastery of St. John,
fortress refuge a thousand years

late morning chants,
an old monk black robed,
sits upright by the gate

he waits,
gray eyes level as the sea,
calm today

Patmos

  1. mom doesn’t give me pop quizzes (I’m home school .) Or tests because she knows how I’m doing. Well, thats not entirely true. She gives me spelling tests once a week.I’m correcting my math… Mom has me do that.

  2. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation?
    My site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either authored myself
    or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my
    authorization. Do you know any solutions to help prevent content from being
    stolen? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
