Silence is complicity - Η σιωπή σου συνενοχή

In your ignorance you pay for this War...
Our milk and bread aids this slaughter.

Tomorrow,
in your bloody ignorance
you’ll murder more kids than yesterday.


Tonight,
sweet dreams my dearests.

Ποιός το ξέρει -Μάνος Λοίζος

Ποιός το ξέρει, ποιός το ξέρεί
πού γυρνάς τη νύχτα αυτή
Ποιος καημός και πιο νυχτέρι
σου ματώνουν τη ψυχή!
Σβήνουν τ΄άστρα ένα-ένα
κι όσα σου' χα ειπώμένα
γίναν δάκρυα παγωμένα,
γίνανε σιωπή.


Κρύβει η νύχτα το φεγγάρι
κι ούτε φώς κι ολυτε λυχνάρι
να μας βγάλει απ΄το ψέμα
κι από την ντρόπη.

Πόρτα ανοίγει, πόρτα κλέινει
και κανένα δε ρωτά:
τούτη η νύχτα πώς θα φύγει
δίχως φώς, χωρίς φωτιά;

Ονειρεύτικα Χριστούγεννα, αλλιώτικα *


... σ'ένα ακρογιάλι..(μ'ενα τσαντίρι κάπου έκει για καβάτσα)


... λίγο αφού ο ήλιος έχει χαθεί..και ενώ το φεγγάρι είναι εμφανές στο βάθος




φωτία..
χαλούμια, παστουρμάδες, σούβλες, σιεφταλιές στα κάρβουνα

κι ένας ορίζοντας παραδομένος στις φλόγες του απογευματινού.




μυρωδιές μισοψημένων φαγητών σμίγουν
με την αλμύρα της θάλασσας,

ζέστη γύρω απο τη φωτιά ,
ο βρυχηθμός των κυμάτων μας καλεί με λαγνεία...

Είσαι για μια βουτιά?

...καθόμαστε στην άμμο και μιλάμε...όχι για δώρα, ρούχα και ότι τάχα κάνει μια τέτοια γιορτή χαρούμενη...

για μιά φορά όλα γύρω μας δεν μας σπρώχνουν σε τέτοιες συζητήσεις...





θα θελα να μιλάμε για άλλα...
Ίσως για τον άνθρωπο,
τον 'Aνθρωπο.
Πώς αυτός θα μπορούσε ν' ανέβει...
Ω! Ίσως να τολμούσαμε ν' αναλογιστούμε πως εμείς μπορούμε να γίνουμε καλύτεροι, πιο φωτισμένοι Άνθρωποι...


ίσως να ονειρεύομαι πολύ..ίσως να ζητάω πολλά...

ίσως όμως και τα υποτιθέμενα 'Merry Christmas' να χουνε ξεφύγει λίγο, λίγο πολύ...

...WHaTZ MISSING ?


i am walking back home... thinking of the troubles that I' be been into these last three months...
all these troubles which seem to me so pointless and almost shameful today
they did not seem bad when they were taking place...not bad at all I tell u!


but now i am moving
am trying to think and see!
see beyond what I can see

my soul was not there
maybe my body..maybe my mind

but I dont think my soul was there

MY SOUL WaS NOT THERE!
MY SOUL IS NOT HERE... IS IT GONE?

I should report that: I've got a MISSING ...SOUL!

ASHES



The night splintered into stars
watching me dazzled
the air hurls hate
its face embellished with music.

We will go soon

Secret dream
ancestor of my smile
the world is emaciated
and there is a lock but no keys
and there is terror but not tears.

What will I do with myself?

Because to You I owe what I am

But I have no tomorrow

Because to You I...

The night suffers.

- Alejandra Pizarnik

ΤΑΣΟΣ ΛΕΙΒΑΔΙΤΗΣ-ΑΝ ΘΕΛΕΙΣ ΝΑ ΛΕΓΕΣΑΙ ΑΝΘΡΩΠΟΣ



stop And experience

Took this picture

on my first (and only)night at Bath, after watching the amazing comedy walk 'Bizarre Bath'. The continuous raining during the 'bizarre'
walking tour around the city's historical attractions didn't put me off. after a drink at the Huntsman Inn I decided to head back to Edgar townhouse.

Walking rapidly into the pouring rain
feeling almost displeased with my wet feet
the only think I anticipated for was to reach my warm room.

I get this sometimes...keep my self busy with what I want to do next.
instead of keeping my senses and mind open to the present experiences.

that night it didn't take me long to get back my mind-fullness.
Bath, is a kind of place in which u can escape from many,
but not so easy to escape from present.

River Avon was singing furiously by me
turn towards it and this was revealed

the rain was so skillfully lighted up...


a surprice last-good-view over the Roman Baths eαrlier on
from...
ladies toilet window! (Really!!)

Aquasolis and Bath



talk to me Aquasolis
talk to me
let your mist run up to my face
and I' ll melt from your pureness
I'll run through there red rocks
I wanna be sacrificed,
Sacrifice my self to you
till this spring run
I wanna blend with these millions curses and blesses.




till I ll become a blessing
Why still people throw gold and silver
we do not live by these
neither do they,
Dead they might be, with them
or without

Talk to me my dear and let me draw
the path where your liquids run next

run reight
ruthless
warm blood
into my vain


You are the Goddess and
me the mournings
that came along the Spring

Σύγχρονη Ανατολή- Παύλος Ξιούτας


Γιομίσαμε τις σκοτεινές
αποθήκες, κατω απ’ τη συνείδηση μας,
με απωθημένες επιθυμίες.
Μη αυτό...Μη εκείνο…αχ!ετούτο.
Όχι…Όχι…Όχι
Γίναμε νευρωτικοί ασκητές
αυτοτιμωρούμενοι,
χωρίς καν να νιώθουμε κοντα μας
την παρουσία του Θεού.
Επιθετικοί τύποι,
ενώ λαχταρούμε το ξέσπασμα
αγγαλιαζουμε τη μελαγχωλία
και τη μόνωση
και σχεδιαζουμε τις πιο απίθανες
εικόνες, για τον εαυτό μας.
Ο αυτοέλεγχος δεν μας πυρώνει
την περηφανια
και η αρνησή μας
κουρελιαζεται απο τους πόθους,
που μας προβαλλει το ασυνείδητο.
Αχ! Θεέ μου, πως θα πεθανουμε έτσι,
μ’αυτή τη θλιβερή συνοδεία
των δεσμωτών της θελήσεως
και της ευτυχίας μας;

ΕναΣ ΚΗΦΗΝΑΣ ΠΕΘΑΙΝΕΙ ΕΞΑΝΤΗΜΕΝΟΣ,
Απο τον ΕΡΩΤΑ ΜΕ ΤΗ ΜΕΛΙΣΣΑ,
ΣΤΟ ΓΛΑΥΚΟ ΧΑΟΣ Τ’ ΟΥΡΑΝΟΥ

Ασυνήθιστη αγαπη - Παύλος Ξιούτας

Ασυνήθιστη αγάπη
αγαπω τον ανθρωπο
και τον φοβαμαι.
Σε λατρεύω
και τρέμω
μήπως αρχισεις
το μέτρημα του χρόνου
και δεν καταδεχτείς
τα άχραντά μου.
Δεν θέλω τον οίκτο σου.
Λαχταρώ την ανάσταση
της ψυχής μου.
Τα δώρα μου για σένα
είναι ασυνήθιστα
για τα κοινά μέτρα
των ανθρώπων,
γιατί αυτοί μετρανε
τον έρωτα,
με την άδεια κλεδψύδρα
του χρόνου,
κι όχι με την αδάμαστη
αθανασία της ψυχής.

recording 5



γι’ ατέλιωτες θαλασσες -----for endless seas
χανόμασταν ------------we were losing ourselves
σαν μεθυσμένοι γλαροι --------like drunk seagulls
βουτώντας στη πυρα ---------diving into the fires
μιας πορφυρής σελήνης.---------of a bloodshed

a Photograph of an ecstatic sunrise in Cyprus, Paralimni (July 2008).
The first words that managed to come up: Rising with the SunRise

Plymouth ου μ’ εθέσπισεν- in Plymouth where my fαte dropped me.



Open up this window
and welcome his fresh warm fingers
feel
the boiling running blood,
through Aeolos* hands
run
bright around your neck
behind
your ears
and get lost
in your seaweed hair!
Look!
a lemon-fire leaf
surrenders in his arms.
How beautifully rests
upon
the wet precious
grass.

*Aeolos:the Greek God of wind and air

Wrote this poem at a Poetry workshop run by an amazing acclaimed performance poet
Kat Francois (to who I am grateful for reminding me to use my rich Greek background)
at the Barbican Theater in Plymouth.

more information about Kat Francois:
http://www.myspace.com/kat_francois">

for my sister- friend Marietta


love you
with more melodious stomp colors
for what you taught me
without being aware.
For what I ‘ve learned
without acknowledging.
Now the sea breeze
fresher than ever
runs and whispers
sings and dances
alongside a rhythm
we have never met before!
no need for names
Lets dive in 'amora'
and then we‘ ll count
how much mystery
can we drink.

the first real artist i' ve ever met ! how charming!

Ειν’ όμορφη η μέρα

φωτεινή,
παρόλα τα σκόρπια συννεφακια...
γλαροι περνούν που και που
ακριβώς μποστα μου...
Στο βαθος πολλύ πρασινο
σε χιλιαδες
αποχρώσεις,
εκεί στο κεντρικό πaρκο του Πλυμουθ.

Οι δρόμοι,
φαινονται ακομa
βουρκωμένοι
απ΄το κλαμα
που ποτέ
δεν ακούω τα βραδια,

ή... δεν θυμαμαι σαν ξ-ημερώσει
ίσως παλι
να’ ναι
απομειναρια
ιδρώτα
καποιου πρωινού
ερωτα

ποιός ξέρει...

DIES SLOWLY by PABLO NERUDA

Dies slowly anyone who becomes a slave of his habits, following every day the same journey, who does not change the way he walks or does not take any risks and does no change the color of his clothes, the one who does not speak to someone that he doesn’t know/
Dies slowly…
The one who avoid the passion, the one who prefers black instead of white and the distinction marks at ‘i’ instead of a group of touching words that give a glow to the eyes, that turn a yawning into a smile, that make the heart beat at the fault and at the feelings.

Dies slowly anyone who does not turn the table up side down, the one who is not happy from his job, the one who does not risk security for the insecurity in order to hunt a dream, the one who does not allow himself at least for once to avoid following well-given advices.

Dies slowly the one who does not travel, who does not read ,listen to music nor find peace in him heart.

Dies slowly anyone who destroys his love, who does not allow to be helped by others. Who spends his time complaining for him luck or for the non-stop raining.

Dies slowly the one who abandons an idea before even stating it or the one who does not ask for what he does not know.

We avoid death in small doses, when we remember that being alive needs much more attempt from the simple fact of breathing.

nature whispers through photos



let thee

till the eyes will be shattered
through his blinded eyes he will touch
the million colors of the sky!

a photo of Yvan Rytz

...this picture screamed over me a full-star sky of words


your hair
as if a spider's well-crafted web
Sucking out a hurricane of not-said farewells
live it for an eternity
till no breath will dare to dive
and you 'll forget
the reason your stand
where u are.

μέσα στην αστραπή



είδα το φώς
που μου καψε το βλέμα
αλλα σαν στέγνωσε το αίμα
ήξερα πως το' χα δεί
έστω και λίγο

τι να την κανω την αλήθεια
αμα δεν είναι όπως την είχα ονειρευτεί
τ' όνειρο ζητώ να' μαι' γώ
ο δρόμος που πορεύομαι
όσο και τ' όνειρο
θολός, ρομαντικός
αλλα φωτεινός μέσα στην συννεφια του

κι αφου καπου στο δρόμο οι δυό τους χώρισαν
εγώ παω με τ' όνειρο
'θα ξαναρθείς μόλις νυκτώσει
και τ'όνειρο παλι την αληθεια θα σώσει'

εκεί ειν' το φώς
κι εκεί η αλήθεια μου.

Troodos mountain. Walking by the river of Kalidoniwn.

video

after nowhere

got back home
and this ''Butterfly' song still buzzes into my head
why i chose to listen to it , still haven't figure it out. . .
... a smell that you cannot sense any more
bewildered...you only can remember how it used to be

oh, the odour grasps me from the neck
and drives the soul into my throat
where the traces of this smell lay

...a smell that you cannot sense any more
its already part of your skin
and in a while part of your inner

once upon a time
it used to keep you warm
now out in the cold autumn
is not by you any more
you dont feel the difference with the remains
the odour its all over from now on

Miltiadis Pasxalidis- akoma s' agapw
