In the Same Space

Constantine Cavafy

 Next Poem          

Environment, of house, of city centres, city quarters
Which I look upon and where I walk; years and years.

I have created you in the midst of joy and in the midst of sorrows;
With so many circumstances, with so many things.

And you have been made sensation, the whole of you, for me.

      Just finished reading a piece from Cavafy and what an experience it was! The beautiful depiction of personal growth within the same spaces over years was profound. It's amazing how surroundings shape us. Truly an insightful read which hits the right chords emotionally. Highly recommend his work to those seeking depth in simplicity!
