CONTEMPORARY HORIZONS: DANIEL BĂRBULESCU (ROMANIA)


A şaptea lume, adunată, 
despre teoria paşilor şi dreptul divin la conjugare

Început: dă-i îngerului suflet şi se împiedică
pasul e cu şapte lumi mai greu decât aripa
căci sufletul puțin rămâne în paşi
pe unde iubim pe unde pierdem
pe unde ne ridicăm apăsat
în bumerang
spre alții şi în apoi

Atenționare: Eu nu beau vodcă!
Din nou, justificare în formă liberă: Trebuie să fie adevăr!

Revenire (a şaptea lume, plină, despre pierderea emoției; NOI...): vorbim vorbim vorbim vorbim vorbim vorbim
suntem oameni

tu vorbeşti
el vorbeşte
ea vorbeşte să nu-i rămână sunetele stârv
voi vorbiți
ei vorbesc
ele la fel

Sfârşit: eu am în mine şase lumi
şi tac în fiecare

The seventh world, gathered – 
on the theory of steps and the divine right to conjugate

The beginning: give a soul to an angel and it will stumble
a step is seven worlds heavier than a wing
for the soul lingers a little in our steps
where we love where we fail
where we ascend heavily
back and forth
towards others and everywhere in between

Warning: I don’t drink vodka!
Again, an open form of justification: There has to be truth!

Recommencement (the seventh world, full, on the loss of emotion; WE…): talk talk talk talk talk talk
we’re humans

you talk
he talks
she talks to enliven her sounds
you talk
they talk
still

The end: I carry six worlds in me
and I remain silent in all of them

NEW HORIZONS: JOHN TISCHER (UNITED STATES - MEXICO)


House on Plumber's Street

Beautiful colorful shabby...
you are welcome if you dare to enter...
but;  leave your ideas outside.


Casa de pe Strada Instalatorilor

Frumoase culori pe ziduri ponosite
eşti binevenit dacă îndrăzneşti să intri...
dar: lasă-ţi speranţele afară.

UNIVERSAL HORIZONS: DONALD ADAMSON (SCOTLAND - UK - FINLAND)


Winter Wish

In deid o winter, may ye hae the licht
o friens, lang kent.
And licht o ithers, maybe fowk hauf kent
and gien little thocht, until ae day
ye chaunce tae meet, and blether,
and suddenly it dings ye: here’s a bodie
wi sympathy, and experience o life,
a bodie that can listen, that has wisdom
glowin bricht –
and the licht wis there aa the time.
Ye juist didnae see it.

* * * 
In dead of winter, may you have the light
of friends, long known. 
And light of others, maybe those half known  
and given little thought, until one day  
you chance to meet, and chat, 
and suddenly it strikes you: here’s a person 
with sympathy, and experience of life,  
someone who can listen, who has wisdom 
glowing bright –  
and the light was there all the time.  
You just didn’t see it.

ALL THE WORLD IN A LIBRARY


BREAKING NEWS: “BIBLIOTHECA UNIVERSALIS”

Open Roads and Secret Destinations – is a book about travels through Eastern Europe, with its good and sad realities. Morelle Smith is an author able to feel as a poet and to think as a philosopher. An excellent book for excellent readers. You must have this book in your personal library. Buy it right now!
Fantasía en do mayor – a musical poetry book of a musician poet from Canarias. One of the few books written rigurously after the dictum: “De la musique avant toute chose, de la musique encore et toujours” (Verlaine). You can’t forget to take this book in your personal library. Buy it right now!
Alien Driftwood – poems from Scotland for readers from all the UK and from all over the world. Another book to be set in your personal library. Buy it right now!
El Tigre (The Tiger) – a powerful book by a powerful poet from Croatia. The literary critic Alfredo Perez Alencart (Colombia-Spain) stated recently about him: “Digo el tigre y me saluda Tomislav” (“I say the tiger and Tomislav greets me”). With this book you’ll gain a tiger to defend yourself when inevitably the end of the world will come. Buy it before!
Breve historia de la poesía argentina (Brief History of Argentine Poetry) – is a book about Argentine poetry and about one of the most humane arts from Homer to nowadays. Read Benitez’ history to understand how the poetry could work for you. A special book for special people. Buy it right now!
Traveller through Time – teaches us carefully how we could travel trough time without the time machine of Sir H. G. Wells. However Catharina Boer is not a second H. G. Wells, but one of the foremost women poets from the Netherlands. Do you like to travel through time back and forth exactly when you want? Take this book as a Baedeker in your house. Buy it right now!
The Spring of the Poet – is a book which confesses about the feelings of an inexhaustible globetrotter. A book in which Martin Bates teaches us the lesson of unity in diversity. A book about the necessary spring in our lives, poets or warriors. Buy this book right now!
Remando travesía hacia la paz (Sailing toward Peace) – Even Julia Gil is not a new Americo Vespucci in blood and flesh, he is a human being who writes poetry and aspires to discover in this way the magic continent of eternal peace. It is possible? Even if not, we could take this book in our personal libraries. Buy it right now!
The End of a Dictatorship – Ooops! About my “scripta manent” I could say what another writer said in another time: “Dear friend, I think it would be not bad to be good”.
To conclude: Dear friends, wherever you are, buy books from the “Bibliotheca Universalis” with confidence before the end of the world comes! Be sure in this way you’ll save at least a small part of your own paradise.
