Meltem is also Turkish given name for females. It derives from the Turkish word for the strong, dry, north winds of the Aegean Sea.

Summer light, summer breeze
Wild flowers on tousled hair
Warm sunshine upon me kissed
A sudden ache of poetry
Rolling waves,
Crisp ocean breeze
Herons gliding overhead
Take me to this place again
Let’s taste the wind of summer days
