LOS HUEVOS

De donde he acumulado anoche tantos huevos,
que en mi sueño se rompían ruidosamente
al mezclarlos, transformándolos en una pasta blanda, como un corazón herido, confundido por la añoranza.

La gente se amontonaba para el festín,
los huevos chisporroteaban en el sartén,
y yo pensaba: que pena
destruir de una vez tantas semillas
que habrían podido un día dar vida
a tantos pájaros
pues toda la gente sabe
que si con pájaros vas a soñar
amor vas a encontrar

Naufragio

Hemos naufragado en el desierto
de un estrecho cuarto de hotel;
Nos quedaba una hora más o menos
y una vida pasada, en contra;
sobre el futuro nos aconsejamos uno al otro,
tontamente,
y también acerca de la muerte
teníamos algo que decir,
como vivirla si nos llega la hora.

El resto era eternidad, inmortalidad,
tiempo vencido;
caricias apresuradas, incompletas,
sonámbulas.

Sofocados por el peso de los besos
que regresaban desde el abismo exigiendo
sus derechos,
no nos atrevimos a contemplar
el minuto siguiente,
después de nuestro momento de gracia.

Dear Flavia,
How wonderful to be able to share your amazingly beautiful, colourful and vigorous impressions from the Mediterranean world with all lovers of poetry and the famous Blue! I can see why you have been so highly praised in the international community!
Lines like these makes an old man that has studied both ancient archaeology and mythology (http://mediterraneanpoetry.blogspot.se/2012_09_01_archive.html) cry:
A nymph bathes in the sea,
A satyr wakens from his dream,
Into the silvery, ever-traveling tide
A solitary man-fish swims.
The evening –a brave maiden-
Descends over us.

Flocking in white bands,
Riding their winged horses,
And laughing,
The Gods sail away.

So, your poems have been posted at http://www.mediterranean.nu/?p=2378 right now! Please feel free to contact us at any time if you would like to alter or append anything you see on the post.

My very warmest wishes and THANKS (in “advance” from all the lovers of poetry and the Famous Blue that visit our site too) for your amazing contribution and I wish you all luck with your future work and hope for a word (poem) with a Mediterranean touch from you now and then!

Hinchas de Poesia - Man’s Iron Hand - by Flavia Cosma

Flavia Cosma

Fuego en invierno

El sol se quiebra en miles de astillas
y arde prudentemente
en esa estufa que sólo calienta una parte del lugar.

Me estoy bronceando los brazos con las pequeñas llamas,
mi sangre brota, corre a través de los espacios
a tu encuentro.

La piel humeante
se desprende perezosa en un par de huesos,
el cuerpo pleno de sueños
late satisfecho.

Abajo, los recuerdos tardíos,
hambrientos,
voluptuosos.

Presentating the book Profane Incentidumbres by Luis Raul Calvo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&NR=1&v=dUuy_beTueU

"Son innumerables los poetas de todos los tiempos que han cantado bajo todos los prismas el personaje del mendigo, pobre de solemnidad, pordiosero, andrajoso o harapiento, que también hay matices para tal menester… Uno puede encontrar, a bote pronto, referencias, las que se quiera, desde Job en el pasaje del rico Epulón en los textos sagrados cristianos o en Homero , Eurípides, Horacio, y cómo no, los mendigos de amor de Shakespeare, Molière o Donne y acá en la versión más histriónica del propio Quevedo. El Romanticismo y Simbolismo europeo configuraron, junto a la bohême y el spleen un manera estetizante del mendigo real o literario. No pocos autores parisinos, madrileños, londinenses, lisboetas o berlineses fueron, a su manera, mendigos de pro, de cultura raída en los bolsillos hueros. Li Po u Omar Khayyam ya se habían currado la figura del mendigo ebrio. El tema da para acotación obligada y tesis doctoral.
Flavia Cosma, otra autora de la diáspora rumana, lo sabe a la perfección y restituye en su poema un climax creciente hasta el último verso en el que aparece la palabra clave “cerşetor” en un expresivo vocativo. Sabe nuestra poeta que etimológicamente (lat. circitor) mendigo es el que da vueltas, deambula a la búsqueda de la limosna. Una limosna que, más allá del óbolo y la materialización de la caridad, nos acerca al carisma del Amor. Es en este sentido en donde Flavia Cosma liga su poema a los mejores poemas de los trovadores provenzales que describieron en ambas corrientes –la nobiliaria (Arnaut Daniel) y la burguesa (Rustebues)- la convención de captaire d’Amor."
