waterfront, thessaloniki, greece


“The hour forgot itself as evening came on
Without memory
With its speechless tree
Facing the sea
It forgot itself as evening came on
Without flutter 
With its immobile face
Facing the sea
As evening came on
Without eros
With its unyielding mouth
Facing the sea

And I-amid the Serenity I enticed”
Odysseus Elytis, Climate of Absense
[Orientations, 1940]
