Midsummer

Summer 1980
30 years ago
?Thirty-years-ago?

All right.


Kymi
on the island of Euboea.


Boys and girls
jumping over the fire
burning the May 1st wreath.



Young girls
carrying a jug of water 
silently
from the village fountain.
Boys and girls putting their trinkets
in the jug.
Take out a trinket
find out who will be your life's companion.

Time goes its course
but our lives stay with us.
love, Irene

Hi Irene - I'm following you now, too! Thanks for visiting my blog - I love Greece - my parents got to visit - I need to get there with my hubby one day - in the meantime - I love eating at Greek restaurants - spanikopita is my favorite dish

Happy Sunday-

Tanned?  Realxed?  Can you feel the sun on your skin? I bet you can!  Summer is not just about beautiful scenery. It is also feel...
