There is only the sound of the dry wind on the moor, waiting for the protagonist to visit again after seven years . This is the place where childhood memories of a wonderful natural paradise, the place where the first date was made and the name was carved in stone. Today, things have changed and time is as silent as the sea. All it possesses here is the sound of the wind, and after facing the sadness of the past and the future, the young people doze off tiredly after their frolics.
