Hide and Seek, Connie Mitropoulos

2005 - Saloni M presents The Shades of Love

Love, eros, agape, amour …
has been carried with the suitcases of their ancestors,
it has been sung by their grandmothers,
it seeps in their blood and finds itself
in their embrace of passionate words.
Greeks, Turks, Cypriots, Kurds
have been traditionally at war with each other.
Before war though they were neighbours and friends,
some were lovers -
they were the various shades of love.
