Summerstalgia | Καλοκαιροσταλγία ☀ (poem | ποίημα)

i miss the way emerald leaves brighten by rising sun,
i miss shoe soles against bare grass & pavement,
i miss opening my chamber window & letting in that
post-rain scent,
i miss the missing flora,
i miss bird symphonies waking me,
i miss crickets & locusts lulling me to slumber.

Translation in Greek:

Πεθύμησα τα πράσινα φύλα που φωτίζονται από τον ήλιο,
Πεθύμησα να περπατώ απανο στο γυμνό γρασίδι και πεζοδρόμιο,
Πεθύμησα να ανοίγω το παράθυρο μου και να μυρίζω την βροχή,
Πεθύμησα τα χαμένα λουλούδια,
Πεθύμησα τα πουλάκια που με ξυπνάνε κάθε μέρα,
Πεθύμησα τα τριζόνια και της ακρίδες να με νανουρίζουνε το βράδυ.

Evy Zen (formerly Eva PoeteX) is a mystic poetess, eclectic artist, fiction writer, and wellness advocate who calls the Greater Cleveland area home sweet home. Born a Clevelander with a Greek lineage, the arts started being a major part of her life the moment she picked up her first crayon. To date, dozens of Evy's writings have been featured in publications like Thought Catalog, The Journey Magazine, and Journey of the Heart: Women's Spiritual Poetry. As a spoken word poet, she has also had the opportunity to collaborate with numerous musicians across the globe. Currently, Evy is the Founding Editor of Poehemian Press and runs the decade-young poetry website (formerly The Artistic Muse). Additionally, she is the author of several independently and locally published poetry books, including "Esoterra" and "Sacred Shapes." Furthermore, she works as a full-time freelance writer and editor. In 2012, Evy received a Bachelor of Arts degree (honors) in Creative Writing from Cleveland State University. She also obtained a Diploma (distinction) in Exercise Nutrition from Shaw Academy four years later. When she's not creating, Evy Zen recharges her batteries by reading her weight in books ("The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho is her personal favorite), going on epic bike rides, meditating to ambient music, and racing super cars behind the safety of her computer or TV screen.
