Istanbul: A place that you will instantly fall in love with. This is one of the poem’s about that lovely place, that I can’t get enough of. I share an extract of this poem by Orhan Veli Kanik, that will take you straight to Istanbul within seconds:
A bird is fluttering in your skirts,
Your brow is hot, I know,
Your lips are wet, I know, I know,
A white moon rises behind the pistachio trees—
I understand the pounding of your heart;
I listen to Istanbul, my eyes closed.
So, here I am sharing it with you and if you do fancy carrying Istanbul in your hand, sitting beautifully against your black dress, then do order this clutch from Olive Tag. If you do like the words from the poem above, do have a listen with your eyes closed, of course!
