The 25 best photos of the Photography Competition - Photometria Awards 2016

The house near the sea


I don't know much about houses

I know they have the own nature, nothing else.

New at first, like babies

who play in gardens with the tassels of the sun,

they embroider coloured shutters and shining doors

over the day.

When the architect's finished, they change,

they frown or smile or even grow recentful

with those who stayed behind, with those who went away

with others who'd come back if they could

or others who?d disappeared, now that the world?s become

an endless hotel.



George Seferis, excerpt from Thrush A: The house near the sea, in George Seferis, Complete Poems (transl., ed. and introd.: E. Keeley - P. Sherrard), (Oxford - Northampton 1995), ss. 161-162.
