Where Are You, Sun? | Πού Είσαι Ήλιε; (poem | ποίημα)

Sun, where are you?
I feel like I’ve forgotten you
or you’ve forgotten me.
The way you feel on my bare skin.
The way you tell the cold to shoo!
Don’t tell me I have to wait
until spring equinox to see you again.
Can I at least see you once before January’s end?

Translation in Greek
Πού Είσαι Ήλιε;

Ήλιε, που είσαι;
Αισθάνομαι πως σε έχω ξεχάσει
η με ξέχασες εσεί.
Ξέχασα πως αισθάνεσαι απάνω στο δέρμα μου.
Ο τρόπος που λες στο κρύο κσοοτ!
Μην μου πεις πως πρέπει να περιμένω μέχρι την ανοίξει για να σε ξαναδώ.
Μπορω να σε δω τουλάχιστον μια φορά πρην το τέλος του Ιανουάριου;

    1. 🙂 The snow isn’t necessarily what bothers me, it’s the intense cold… -10°F with the windchill. D: Can you believe it snowed in Crete, Greece the other day? That’s extremely rare. My relatives loved it, though.

      Thank you! The same to you, my friend. ❄️⛄️



  1. I just walked 4 kilometres in january cold and then it started raining – i’m longing for a holiday in a sunnier clime so this poem struck me as ironic.

    1. Some sunshine and less frigid temperatutes is all I ask, but alas, January is always the coldest month in Ohio. I’ll just have to bundle up until spring returns.

      Anyway, thanks for reading, Stephen! 🙂


I value your thoughts. :)
