Four springs in a row, bubbling clear and cold,
running side-by-side, took channels left and right.
Soft meadows spreading round were starred with violets,

lush with beds of parsley. Why, even a deathless god

who came upon that place would gaze in wonder,
heart entranced with pleasure.¹

heart entranced with pleasure.¹We been thinking about water, while trapped in mainland and the idea to revive the impression of the place, where nymph Calypso had made her home, became an aspiration for us. We took a role of potter and trusted water, protean as it is, to tell the story. In aim to catch it, we molded clay into capacious wares and  stood aside. Flowing stream filled dormant pots with vital flow, reviving work of artisan to tell a tale about sacred times that came to pass.  Half buried, or half raised it waits to be found on a path of a wonderer.
