Summer Forevermore | Καλοκαίρι Για Πάντα ☼ (poem | ποίημα)

My bare soles are in dire need of rained-
on concrete,  santorini sands, just-mowed
grass, sidewalk warmed by summer sun’s sass.

My bare soul is in dire need of less clothes,
but January makes scarf/glove/earmuff wearers
of us all. Oh, and you can’t forget about those over-
sized coats that make us look like marshmallows.

But if I had  a sole need it would be

a summer forever-lasting.

Translation in Greek:
Καλοκαίρι Για Πάντα

Οι σόλες μου χρειάζονται
καθαρό δρόμο, άμμο της
Σαντορίνης, κοντό γρασίδι,
έδαφος ζεσταμένο απο του
ηλίου την λάμψη.

Η ψυχή μου χρειάζεται
λιγότερα ρούχα,

Αλλα ο Ιανουάριος μας
αναγκάζει να φοράμε
κασκόλ, γάντια, σκούφοι,
και τεράστια παλτά.

Αν είχα μόνο μια επιθυμία θα ήταν…

Ένα καλοκαίρι για πάντα.

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).

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.
