                                       FANTASY

                    In my dreams you are still there, Apollo,

                                    perfect beauty shrouded

                                  in mist of gentle raindrops,

                        dropped naked before my cold, bare feet

                      by a mischievous god from a primeval sky.

                                    Sometimes you take me

                                    n the cloak of your arms

                                   and lock me there, secure

                        or in a cozy bed, innocently entwined

                             like pythons in passionate dance.

                                           Time and again

                  you kissed me in the Sampaguita-scented room,

                 in white shores of tides and salty seaweed scents;

                                        in solitary caves where

                            illicit lovers sought sanctuary and in

                      the shadowy recesses of my secret garden.

                                      But in my winter solstice

                                           you are gone, Apollo

                        and I finally came to terms with myself

                            that you are, and always have been

                                         only an elusive creation

                       from the lonely caverns of my poetic soul.
