~ Santorini poems ~

~ by katherine & anastasios ~

Santorini is full of wonder and mystery and the beauty of the island is unsurpassed in Greece .
A magnificent island , a setting where you can forget everyday cares .
A signature of the past that makes you wonder about the wizardry of nature , enjoy stunning views over the caldera , bathe in the bluest of seas .
It is natural that Santorini inspired many ....

Santorini is a magnificent island with a natural setting that it almost looks like a dream .
The amalgamation of beautiful villages with white houses , the long sandy beaches with crystal clear waters , the archaeological sites that reek of a glorious history , the massive volcano , great food and awesome people make Santorini am experience of a lifetime .
It is but natural that Santorini has inspired many over the ages including philosophers and poets like George Seferis .
He was a poet , essayist and diplomat who was considered to be the most distinguished Greek poet of the pre war generation of the 1930's .
One of his poems , "Santorini - the naked child" is dedicated to the island and is as follows :

~ Santorini - the naked child ~
Bend if you can to the dark sea forgetting the flute's sound on naked feet that trod your sleep in the other , the sunken life .
Write if you can on your last shell the day the place the name and fling it into the sea so that it sinks .
We found ourselves naked on the pumice stone watching the rising islands watching the red islands sink into their sleep , into our sleep .
Here we found ourselves naked , holding the scales that tipped toward injustice .
Instep of power , unshadowed will , considered love , projects that ripen in the midday sun , course of fate with a young hand slapping the shoulder ?
In the land that was scattered , that can't resist , in the land that was once our land the islands , - rust and ash - are sinking .
Altars destroyed and friends forgotten leaves of the palm tree in mud .
Let your hands go traveling if you can here on time's curve with the ship...
