|You sail into the port and are initiated
into the mysteries of the water and the stones.
Small seas scattered all around you:
Katergo, Livadi, Agios Nikolaos, Agali.
In the Castle, in Chora,
The lime of the houses self-complacently
mixes with the winds of Pounta
as they are carving the rocks.
In your long walks to Pano Meria
the blue all around surrounds you.
And at the end of the road the sunset
glows revealing the light of the Aegean.
It is an elixir and herbal remedy
this mixing of salt, wind and sun.
A silent landscape like a hymn to time,
counting the days with the fluttering of seagulls.
