Mandrakia, Milos · 2017   simple beauty



   Greece, cradle of philosophy, of be and see, child prodigy. Now some call you a problem child, all nonsense, no sense. I can’t wait to see what you will grow up to be, a few thousand years from now.

Sunset in Santorini, Greece


glimpse: PIECE | Oh Santorini sun, fiery minx, you set like no other; all dressed in amorous promises, you lean in to kiss the horizon and our voluptuous human longing for romance becomes so tangible. But, alas, the faster you near the embrace, the more passion becomes skirmish. To hell with loving surrender, everybody doesn’t want peace; a piece is what we crave! We miss gentle caresses down here, in this crossfire of sharp elbows and hectic shutter shot staccatos; but none of us can afford time or space for sentiments while demanding our rightful peek. Like the tide below, the second wave of people has arrived to replace the first; yet, the flesh pours in erratically, unlike the smoothly transitioning surf. We are all here, now, but not in the moment and not together. Oh Santorini sun, you lured us with union, but all you gave was divide. Now you wander west to seduce another sorry lot of naïve fools, leaving us in the dark.

The sea wasn't very deep just there and the sky not very high just then, and the earth felt a little more significant.

Santorini / To Be Your Lover

Aegean Sea, poetry to me

and to everyone with at least one eye to see

or even just a mind to be,

to be your lover, your sailor, your piglet, your toy,

cruel joy

you take us all into your depths eventually

Aegean Sea, in you I will never be free

Afterglow Fader

when Night slays Day, we stand in its way

…the last fire in the sky ebbs into paler shades of orange and yellow, before wandering west on the spectrum towards far colors like indigo. Meanwhile, on earth’s surface, civilization flips the switch to side with the day, and bulbs drip into the evanescent stream of hues like florescent droplets… see more

The Observer Effect: Momentary Momentum

raw life instants

...the camera’s skill to freeze the momentary momentum in-between scenes is nothing short of miraculous and reminds me of a quirky phenomenon in the quantum realm: the observer effect. see more
