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.
