A Mere Kiss II
"I have woken up...quite sloshed
from night-mingled rains
a little drugged, by mountain fogs
I have been kidnapped
for years....by a mere kiss.”
Sanober Khan, A Thousand Flamingos
This well known lake, which is located in Epirus in northwestern Greece, was in ancient times known as “Pamvotis”, meaning "the great provider". Situated right next to the city of Ioannina, this uncommonly beautiful lake is a true gem of the Ioannina Basin region. With a fascinating history full of legends and traditions that go back centuries, the lake of Kyra Frosyni has become famous beyond the borders of Greece.
Kyra Frosyni was a legendary figure in Epirus prior to Greek independence.
"A Mere Kiss II" is part of my new series, "The Forty Faces Of Frosyni".
