Sono sul tratto di costa delle Marine di Melendugno più suggestivo, sede di una delle dieci piscine naturali più belle del mondo: la Poesia.
Una costa rocciosa e frastagliata circondata da acque limpide e turchesi, che non hanno nulla da invidiare a quelle dei paradisi tropicali. E, in questo meraviglioso contesto, una grande cavità naturale scavata nella roccia, da perdere il respiro.
La Grotta della Poesia è uno dei posti più amati dagli appassionati di tuffi adrenalinici. Benché sia una piscina custodita tra le rocce, non vi è alcun trampolino: gli scogli altissimi sono l’unica piattaforma per darsi lo slancio, lanciandosi nel blu più profondo.
La Grotta deriva il suo nome da "posia", un termine della lingua greca del Medioevo che significa "sorgente di acqua dolce", un chiaro riferimento alla fonte che in passato scorreva al suo interno, i cui segni sono ancora oggi visibili.
Secondo la versione più fiabesca e romantica, il nome sarebbe dovuto ad una principessa che amava fare il bagno nella grotta. La sua bellezza, secondo la leggenda, avrebbe ispirato i versi di molti poeti.
Al di là del piacere indiscutibile di fare un bagno in questo luogo così singolare, la grotta ha anche un importante valore archeologico, storico e antropologico per le iscrizioni votive, i graffiti e i simboli stilizzati, databili fra il II millennio avanti Cristo e l’età romana repubblicana. Al suo interno, lungo tutte le pareti perimetrali, si trovano epitaffi ed iscrizioni riguardo il culto di Thaotor Audirahas, divinità invocata per la guarigione da malattie e malefici. Purtroppo molti di essi sono stati erosi dall’acqua, tuttavia è ancora possibile apprezzarne ed osservarne una buona parte.
Così la bellezza naturale della Grotta della Poesia si fonde con  l’antica storia che permea ogni angolo di questo tratto di costa salentina, il confine tra il tempo e lo spazio qui non è stato mai fissato. Puoi sentirti nel medioevo oppure nel trapassato remoto di un tempo greco o addirittura messapico, forse protostorico. Insomma  dinanzi alla storia di questo luogo, tutto il resto impallidisce.
Sulla mia pelle solo la sensuale trasparenza di un body e una gonna in tulle, per una femminilità nuova: tra classico e contemporaneo.

(Clicca qui se vuoi vedere un mio diverso post dove indosso un sensuale abito in tulle).

I'm on the stretch of the most beautiful coastline of Melendugno, home to one of the ten most amazing natural pools in the world:  the Poetry.
A rocky and jagged coast surrounded by clear and turquoise waters, which have nothing to envy to those of tropical paradises. And, in this wonderful context, a large natural breathtaking cavity dug into the rock.
The Poetry's Cave is one of the most loved places by adrenaline filled diving lovers. Although it is a pool guarded among the rocks, there is no trampoline: the tallest reefs are the only platform to get the momentum, throwing yourself into the deepest blue.
The legend tells that a princess loved to bathe in these waters and her incredible beauty attracted poets from all over southern Italy, ready to reach her for composing and decanting verses dedicated to her.Inside the cave it is possible to admire figures of figures and epitaphs: most of the writings on the cult of Thaotor Audirahas, divinity invoked for healing from illnesses and maladies.
All the area adjacent to the Cave is characterized by the presence of archaeological remains, hypogea, crypts, and towers of various ages from the Bronze Age
Submarine archeology is also of great interest: on the seabed, it is possible to recognize archaeological remains from the third and second centuries BC, the remains of the Greek and Roman civilizations and traces of Turkish and Saracen civilizations.

So the natural beauty of the Cave of Poetry blends with the ancient history that permeates every corner of this stretch of Salento coast, the boundary between time and space here has never been fixed. You can feel yourself in the Middle Ages or in the distant past of a Greek time or even Messapic, perhaps a Proto-historic. In front of this place so full of history, everything else turns pale.
On my skin only the sensual transparency of a bodysuit and a tulle skirt, for a new femininity: between classic and contemporary.
