End of summer

I started “Scent of my heart” so I could share my poems with other people apart from my close friends. So far I am happy with my blog considering it’s really newborn and I must say one more time – thank you Tom Baker for finding me and introducing me to people like Cherlyn from “Over a Cup of Coffee”, it’s always nice to meet people all over the world.

Originally I thought that I will share only poems, because more or less the poem I post says about the day I had, the way I feel, but today I feel like having something different than a poem … it’s going to be my different post every Wednesday of every week. Why Wednesday? Well first Wednesday is my favorite day of the week and second I like the American way of saying :” Happy Hump Day- Happy middle of the week!”

I woke up this morning to find out that the chilly wind is back again. A week ago temperatures dropped down and I thought: ” Oh, the summer is going away!”, but then after few days it was sunny and hot again … until this morning- when my bare feet felt the cold marble floor, which usually in the heat is so nice to walk on to, when having coffee outside on the balcony wasn’t pleasant without a jumper.

I love summer! Having in mind I was born and I have lived for 24 years in a country with very deep winters, mountains of snow and minus degrees, against all odds I just love summer and heat. I absolutely adore the strong sun, the smell of sand and salty water in the air, the light clothes, the long days, the hot nights with open windows and the sound of singing insects. I love Athens in august. It’s really hot, but empty. No traffic, no buses full of people, no politics working in the parliament to accept unacceptable laws to make people to strike, demonstrate and block the roads unhappy and angry with the government, just happy tourists exploring the town, speaking different languages, taking photos …

This summer was a great summer for me. I managed to free myself from all feelings and people making me suffer, I managed to feel myself again, confident and happily smiling, I went on a trip to London and I sure felt really royal visiting palaces and historical monuments, I spent a week on a Greek island enjoying the sea and the beach, I filled myself with energy to face the winter that will come soon.

And today feeling the cold it made me a bit sad … I wish the summer lasted a bit more … I wish I had for a bit more the sun- tanned skin and my painted toe- nails in sandals. But they say nothing really lasts forever and I guess that goes and for summer …

How about you? Do you have a favorite season?

I hope all of you had a very good start of the week and it will end even better! Happy Hump Day world!

    I’m very happy to have met you too! The wonders of the internet, allowing people from two different continents to be able to communicate so freely – I love it!

    I’ve always wanted to go to Greece, my friend has family there, and she went this summer and she says it’s gorgeous in the summer – and now you say the same thing, so I’m thinking if I ever go, it’ll be sometime in the summer lol.

    I definitely know what you mean though, feeling a bit sad about the changing of the seasons. I like all the seasons, some more than others, but I always find I feel a bit sad and happy when the weather changes. If I had to pick a favourite it would be Autumn – I’m still a bit sad though that the weather is changing.

    Great post – I look forward to reading your next Hump Day post!!

    What a wonderful holiday you had! You make summer sound wonderful. I used to love it, but have grown intollerant of heat. I think I love spring and autumn best; but, in Northern California, we really don’t have distict seasons. The weather is pretty mellow.

    Talking about strikes even then. I think they’re common in Greece. Did used to pay as much attention before.

    I used to love the look my my suntanned feet in the most nothing sandles I could find with glossy nail polish … Wonderfu. Ah, what’s the allure. I don’t know, but it’s there.

    Happy days, Blaga …

      Summers are always wonderful, I can’t wait for this one to come! Strikes are in my mind for the past year, it’s been more or less every other day one of them, to make life miserable. Thank you Jamie! Happy days back to you!
