New Symbols For Clash Interlacing Of Cultures - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

ask the Nobel Laureate for Literature
Orhan Pamuk for his autograph
while you can for Caesar is centuries
dead Byzantine Empire long vanquished

expelled in blood from ancient Anatolia
but like wine press birth born from grapes
over time with nurturing care fermented
at least Orhan Pamuk has at last discerned

'in the quest for the melancholic soul
of his native city... discovered new symbols
for the clash and interlacing of cultures'

in youth I traveled West in maturity I traveled East
youth travels fast swift when eager at bit is best
