the summer archives: mela



"Mela" by Barry Spacks

Mela, mela, how it pleases,

Greek for "honey"--word so small

you can write it in the cold hard sand

in the time between two waves.



I hope you still remember how summer tasted.

  2. These words and photos are perfect together. By the way, I call one of my best friend Mela (Carmela), which in Italian means Apple.
    Have a lovely weekend ^^
