striving after a dream

I’d rather learn from one bird how to sing
than teach ten thousand stars how not to dance

~e. e. cummings, from “you shall above all things be glad and young”

the storm broke…          again

… i think this time i won’t be here till everything dries up… & comes back to the so-called normality

Shamshad Khan El Periódico de Poesía publicó dos de los poemas de Shamshad Khan que traduje recientemente.

Además, aquí un fragmento de Megalomaniac, más poesía rap donde confluyen T. S. Eliot y Eminem para hacernos pensar en la poesía y los poetas y el poder que tienen.

Doris Lessing, Nobel Prize!!

Doris Lessing

                               i want to leave
                all this

your judgements
                              your words
        reductio ad absurdum

i do not recognise
the safety you are supposedly offering

forget the booing
ignore the praise

who said i’m seeking approval?

             i’ll walk
i’ll go deaf
                 except for the sound of this new promise

dive for dreams
or a slogan may topple you
(trees are their roots
and wind is wind)

trust your heart
if the seas catch fire
(and live by love
though the stars walk backward)

honour the past
but welcome the future
(and dance your death
away at this wedding)

never mind a world
with its villains or heroes
(for gods like girls
and tomorrow and the earth)

~e. e. cummings

what other places are there in the world
than those discovered on a lover’s body?

~Jeanette Winterson, Written on the Body

first step

October 4, 2007

On Monday, I finally gave the first step.
                                                           Hopefully, it will lead me somewhere.

Everything seems to be promising…
                                                                 I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

 Thanks M for all your support throughout this venture! Hopefully, it will happen soon…
