Antinous the Navigator

Today is the feast day of Antinous the Navigator (Ekklesia Antinoou).

I offer Him this poem:

 

Stella Antinoi

the clip of a fast boat cuts through swells

the waters dark as the night sky

for the Navigator is victorious

in his struggle with the powers

who hold, who bind, and

like a porpoise surfacing,

stronger than the shark

more clever than

shadowy Leviathan,

his ship bursts forth!

can you see it

in the light

reflected by

that Star under whose light we can navigate?
