PJESME / POEMS

JANA ORLOVÁ 1986 CZE Prague
Mentor: Anđela Turukalo

Duša nema pol

Djelimično sam muškarac
mašina i planeta

Podići ću tamnicu za duhove
i pokazaću vam gdje loviti
u sumraku

Onda ću ih skuvati u
menstrualnoj krvi
Oštrica oduzimanja, rez ljubavi

Ja sam bijela, gola i ljupka
tamo, na udaljenom asteroidu
—————————————–
Duše nemá gender

Jsem něco mezi mužem
strojem a planetou

Postavím komoru pro duchy
a ukážu ti, kde lovit v šeru

Vše uvařím ve své krvi
Ostří ztráty, řez lásky

Jsem bílá, nahá, krásná
v dálce na asteroidu
————————————–
Soul Has No Gender

I’m partly a man
a machine and a planet

I will erect a chamber for ghosts
and I’ll show you where to hunt in gloom

Then I boil them in my menstrual blood
Blade of forfeit, incision of love

I am white, naked, lovely
there, on a remote asteroid

MICHELA ZANARELLA 1980 ITA Rome
Mentor: Anđela Turukalo

Na granici dna okeana

Na granici dna okeana
nezreo je zvuk
ukradenog života.
Šaka mora
vraća se sa znojem
i težina
uskih pustinja
počiva u duhu.
To je teror:
glad i žeđ
što u čamcu
započinju njen kraj.
———————————
On the boundary of an ocean floor

On the boundary of an ocean floor
the unripe sound
of a life stolen.
A fistful of sea
returns with sweat
and the weight
of narrow deserts
in a ghost.
It is a terror
the hunger and the thirst
that in a dinghy
begins her end.

GLORIA SOFIA 1985 NHL Rotterdam
Mentor: Anđela Turukalo

Poezija se rađa

Utroba unutra stvara
djecu izrazitih osjećanja,
što žive u zametku poništenog srca.
Okruženi karminskom rijekom,
ujedinjuju se poput naroda:
rasturaju maslačak,
bore se sa robovskom tišinom,
ostavljajući me grozničavom od osjećanja.
To je vrtoglavica, osjećaj odvratnosti.
Osjećam toliko kontrakcija…
Rijeke znoja teku kao munje:
gase svjetla i izblijede,
sipajući smijeh i radost.
Iz dugog porođaja rađa se poezija.
——————————————
Nasce la poesia

Ventre genera dentro di me
figli di sentimenti distinti
vivono nell'embrione di un cuore disfatto
contornati da un fiume carminio
si uniscono come il popolo
spargono denti di leone
lottano con il silenzio di uno schiavo
lasciandomi febbricitante dall'emozione
É una vertigine, sensazione di disgusto
tante contrazioni sento
fiumi di sudore corrono come lampi
spengono luci e sbiadito
spruzzano risa e allegria
dal parto prolungato nasce la Poesia

LUCILLA TRAPAZZO 1964 SWI Zurich
Mentor: Anđela Turukalo

Burrnesha (ili Posljednja zakleta djevica)*

Jedan pokret i suknja pada na zemlju:
zadnji trag tvoje ženstvenosti.
Prkosna pletenica pada pod noge
sa ponosnim, bakarnim odsjajem.
Dojka ti je nezrela.
Dodiruješ kožu od nara, pa vežeš.
Dva surova zavoja ograničavaju dah.
Mladenački veo tvoje majke je nasložen (san
jabuke i cimeta koje čuva kamfor).
Drhtavo lice odraženo na fragmentu stakla.
Na krevetu:
poderane pantalone čekaju
tvoju mliječnu kožu.
U daljini: refren glasova i jadikovki.
Tvoj otac
odmara u najvećoj sobi.
Amarantski šal
jedva krije cvijet krvi,
uspomenu na divlji lov.
Sama ćeš čuvati čast kuće,
porodice i sreza.
Sjutra,
suočena sa starijim očima od leda,
negiraćeš da si žena.
To je borba, trgovina za tvoju slobodu.
Zadimljeni podrumi rakije i znoja
čekaju na tebe.
Utroba ti je neplodna zauvijek.
Zakon planina i dolina;
naglih, brzih rijeka;
napisan krvlju, iz dalekih vremena:
sama, Djevica vrijedi samo šest volova.
Sjutra ćeš biti čovjek.
Za šaku ljubavi,
tvoji uzdasi i tuga
ostaće u krevetu, da mjesec ne gleda.

*(U ruralnoj Albaniji, od srednjeg vijeka, samohrane žene smatrale su se obeščašćenim, nisu mogle posjedovati ni svoje imanje i nisu bile zaštićene od nasilja. Imale su samo jedno rješenje: da se zakunu da će zauvijek ostati nevine. „Zaklete djevice“ postale su Patrijarsi njihovih porodica, sa svim teretima i počastima muškog autoriteta. Danas u Albaniji ima oko 40 zakletih djevica.)
—————————————————
Burrnesha (ovvero l’ultima vergine giurata)

Un sol gesto ed è in terra la veste
reliquia di donna. S’arrende
ai tuoi piedi la treccia ribelle
di fieri riflessi di rame.
Acerbo il tuo seno. Ne sfiori
la pelle color melograno e
lo avvolgi. Due bende crudeli
costringono il fiato. Piegato il velo
da sposa che fu di tua madre, già sogno
di mela e cannella custodito da canfora.
Un frammento di vetro riflette
le gote tremanti sul letto
calzoni consunti in attesa
di pelle di latte. Lontano un coro
di voci e lamenti. Tuo padre
è composto nella stanza più grande.
A stento una sciarpa amaranto
nasconde quel fiore di grumi di sangue
memento di caccia selvaggia.
Sei sola a serbare l’onore di casa,
famiglia e contado. Domani
di fronte agli anziani
con occhi di ghiaccio
negherai d’esser donna.
È una lotta, un baratto per la tua libertà.
Cantine fumose di raki e sudore
ti aspettano con ventre per sempre infecondo.
La legge di valli montane e fiumi impetuosi
è scritta nel sangue da tempi remoti
-una vergine sola vale solo sei buoi.-
Domani sei uomo. Per l’amore una mano
sospiri e tormenti nel letto
da sola.
————————————————
Burrnesha (or the last Sworn Virgin)

One gesture and on the ground falls the skirt
final vestige of your womanhood.
A defiant braid surrenders at your feet
with proud copper reflections.
Your breast is unripe. You touch
the pomegranate skin and
you bind it up. Two cruel bandages
constraining the breath. Folded is the bridal veil
that once was your mother’s (a dream
of apple and cinnamon guarded by camphor).
A fragment of glass reflects
your trembling face. On the bed
ragged pants are waiting
for your milky skin. Far away a chorus
of voices and laments. Your father
is resting in the largest room.
Barely an amaranth scarf
hides the blossom of blood
memento of wild hunting.
You’re alone to keep the honor of home,
family and county. Tomorrow
facing the elderly
with eyes of ice
you’ll deny being a woman.
It’s a fight, a trade for your freedom.
Smoky cellars of raki and sweat
are waiting for you. Your belly is barren forever.
The law of mountains and valleys, of impetuous hastening rivers
is written in blood since remote times
– Alone, a Virgin, is worth only six oxen –
Tomorrow, you’ll be a man. For the love one hand
your sighs and your sorrow
when Moon is not looking.

(In rural Albania, since the Middle Age, single women had no honor, their possessions were disposed of and they were not protected against violence. Only one solution remained for them: to swear to remain virgins forever. The “sworn virgins” became the Patriarchs of their families, with all the burdens and honors of male authority. Today there are about 40 sworn virgins in Albania.)

What makes me different? Probably my nomadic nature, both in life (I lived in different countries) and in artistic expression (always jumping among the different media). In my works I long for a synthesis of the different artistic languages, for instance my poems have some filmic/theatrical elements as well as a touch of sensorial, pictorial quality.

Your opinion about our contest – Mili Dueli?
I am enjoying the process very much. It takes courage to undergo such a huge competition with poets from all over the world. It is a humbling experience as well, we learn a lot, we confront, we are exposed directly to the public judgment (for me it was the scariest part) – Thank you for this!

Sjećam se divlje ruže

Sjećam se divne divlje ruže
koja se rasula avgustovskim vazduhom.
Njene krvave i lebdeće suze…
Vjetar je stenjao i jaukao plačom
jer nije mogao podnijeti, zanesen,
tako je bilo u strahovima iverja,
kao da je zaista uboden…
Glasno dišući, žaleći se:
„Iščupao sam se trnjem očaja!“
Rahmanjinova muzika među
avgustovskim ružama je bolovala,
od sezone vrućina nepravedno se razdvaja…
“Ne! Ne vadi ga, moja draga!”
Rekla je, cvileći u mojoj haljini,
i ostavljajući, na vratu, laticu.
„Bilo bi bolje da nestane dovraga
u svom hladnom i bodljikavom zagrljaju,
nego da ruža dobije vremensku grickalicu “.

MRTVI ČVOR (Montenegrin version)

Kao sputum na plućima,
lešinari se gnijezde na pepelu mrtve šume,
gurajući stolicu sa samo jednom stabilnom nogom,
izmičući je narodu.

Ekodiktatura, ekocid, geocid –
postoji velika mogućnost da ćemo se koristiti sličnim terminima
skoro svakog dana:
ne samo u slučaju Sibira,
nego i Sahare,
Karpata,
Arktika,
Antarktika,
Nusantara,
i poslednje, ali ne najmanje važno – Amazonije;
jer hiljade primjeraka,
stotine vrsta flore i faune,
desetine ekologa
i jedna planeta koja nije u stanju izdržati potpun napad
su debelo platili zbog zaštite prirode.

Uostalom, šta očekivati
kada će kanibalizam biti uobičajen
za ljubitelje mesa, vegetarijance, vegane i sve slične njima;
i pod nogama naših dehidriranih i gladnih tijela
otopiće se kao kamen tvrd led
dok će nas mučiti ugljenik sa stabala drveća?

Nažalost, koraci naših potomaka
bivaju pregaženi koracima bezdušnih odraslih;
otkrićemo ukus posljedica prije ili kasnije,
a onda ćemo leći u masovnu grobnicu
prekrivenu pepelom i smećem.
———————————————————
DEAD LOOP (English version)

Like sputum on the lungs,
vultures are nestling on ashes of a dead forest,
pushing the chair that has only one stable leg
from under the people.

Ecodictatorship, ecocide, geocide –
there is a large possibility that we will use similar terms
almost every single day
not only in the case of Siberia,
but also Sahara,
The Carpathians,
The Arctic,
The Antarctic,
Nusantara,
and last but not least – Amazonia,
because thousands of specimens,
hundreds of species of flora and fauna,
tens of environmentalists
and one planet that is unable to hold a full-on assault
have paid for their protection of nature.

After all, what we will expect
when cannibalism is going to be usual
for meat-lovers, vegetarians, vegans, and all alike them,
and under feet of our dehydrated and hungry bodies
will melt a rock-hard ice
while we will be tortured by carbon from trunks of trees?

Unfortunately, so long as our infant steps
are stomped by steps of soulless adults,
we will discover the taste of consequences sooner or later,
and after that, we will lie in a mass grave
covered with ashes and trash.

МЕРТВА ПЕТЛЯ (Ukrainian version)

Немов мокротиння в легенях,
падальники вмощуються на згарищах мертвого лісу,
зсуваючи з людства стілець,
на котрому залишилась тільки одна стійка ніжка.

Екодиктатура, екоцид, геоцид –
велика ймовірність, що ми будемо вживати схожі поняття
не тільки відносно Сибіру,
Сахари,
Карпат,
Арктики,
Антарктиди,
Нусантари
і, врешті-решт, Амазонії,
бо за охорону природи поплатились тисячі особин,
сотні видів флори та фауни,
десятки екозахисників і одна планета,
яка не в змозі витримати шквал атак.

Зрештою, а чого ми будемо очікувати,
коли канібалізм стане звичним явищем
для м’ясоїдних, вегетеріанців, веганів та схожих на них,
а під ногами наших зневоднених і голодних тіл
будуть танути брили льоду,
поки нас катуватимуть вуглецем з-під стовбурів дерев?

На жаль, поки наші кроки немовлят втоптують кроки бездушних дорослих,
ми рано чи пізно пізнаємо смак наслідків,
після чого ляжемо в братську могилу,
вкриту сміттям та попелом.

Your biography
21 y.o., I was born in Ternopil’, Ukraine, and I live here as well.

I’m studying software engineering at Ternopil’ National Technical University, almost finishing my master’s degree.

When I have free time to spend, I prefer to play football, sing, listen to music, or capture photos; sometimes I translate from Ukrainian to English to strengthen my knowledge and soft skills in English (thus all English translations of poems I sent earlier in that competition were mine). And of course, I write poems when I have a chance and feeling to do it.

I participated as an author and performer at BookForum in L’viv, Ukraine (2018, 2019) and Creative Youth Seminar in Irpin’, Kyiv region (2019, 2020 (online)). I was also chosen as the participant of the art festival “Ї” in my hometown of Ternopil’ in 2020 but it was postponed up until May 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

What makes me different from the others? Perhaps, the fact that I mostly perceive poetry as an environment for experiments – thus I don’t fear to try something new while I’m writing or typing. In my opinion, it’s not very good if you’re framed and can’t make poems that have different themes, rhythms, and forms – especially the latter.

Your opinion about our contest – Mili Dueli?
To be honest, that was a very good and thrilling experience as it is the first foreign contest I’m taking part in. And I was stunned (in a good form) for a while because I didn’t have a clue how Nermin found my profile on FB and knew that I’m writing poems. XD

But the further participation in Mili Dueli was and still is totally worth it.

Oblaci plove uz brodove.
Prvi redovi ostalih ivica
vode ljubav po vodi.
Napola smo puni, napola prazni:
nebo bolno plače kišu,

Mi smo poput školjki u buci okeana,
ali plovimo i živimo razdvojeni:
sreću donosimo novim rutama,
nosimo nove ili stare sudbine…
Samo su mi ti brodovi strani.
Samo je jedno nebo i zauvijek
postoji samo more, postojiš samo ti.

але нарізно пливем чи живем
возимо щастя новими маршрутами

clouds float by ships
the first rows of other edges
carry love on the water
we are half full half empty
sky sore crying rain

we are like shells in the noise of the ocean

we bring happiness by new routes
we carry new or old destinies
only those ships are foreign to me
there is only one sky and forever
there is only the sea there is only you

The competition certainly inspires and provides new opportunities for poets. For me, personally, this is an experience and a new level. I am infinitely grateful to the organizers. Poetry is God’s blessing, it is an invisible bridge called to unite people! This is a unique verbal expression of emotions, thoughts, views and whole worlds! It is a step towards high, inner enrichment and spiritual growth! Poetry is a love for the word and the path that leads … If poetry is a gift, it helps to carry light into this world and “shine with the word”.

I could feel it

The unspoken is your shadow
I could feel it with my heart
Your lips dried with fatigue and hopelessness,
but your smile overcomes another one of those days
You look at deep skies, wishing to fly away
but you are grounded, with no roots, and no wings belong to your flesh.
Your eyes burn silent fire, sparks before ignition, dark clouds dimming soft light.
You curled your soul – bird over a silent nest.
But for those, who need you – shelter and salvation with you lay rest.
Your strength and weakness both equal true Love, belonging to no one, no exclusivity.
You believe in humaneness , even though the world is its refutation.
You have so much more to speak of, I can hear it with my heart.
But nonetheless you choose to leave without uttering a sound.

Усещам го

Неизказаното от теб като сянка те следва.
Усещам го със сърцето си, в момента, в който те срещам.
Устните ти са пресъхнали от умора и безнадеждност,
но се усмихваш, надвила още един ден от “онези”.
Поглеждаш в синьото на небето, искайки да избягаш далече,
но си заземена, без корен, а криле не са ти прикрепени.
Очите ти са притихнал огън, от който искри, пред разпалване, светят,
но тъмни кръгове потушават светлината им мека.
Свила си душата си като птица над гнездо – разрушено,
а за другите си пристанът, където намират спасение.
Силата и слабостта ти са съизмерими с Любов, без ничия принадлежност. Вярваш в човешкото, въпреки че светът е опровержение.
Имаш толкова още да споделиш, чувам го със сърцето си.
Тръгваш, без да пророниш и дума, преди някой да е усетил.

U njegovom svjetlu

Zvukovi razdoblja
u vječnim melodijama
bude se iz vizija
drevnih zamkova.
Ta vladavina, legendarna:
u mističnim bojama,
u fluidnim tonovima,
u bijelom sokaku
gdje pružamo ruke …

Rasprostranjene arome mošusa
i ptice selice koje bježe,
koje odlete…
I padaju,
odjednom,
poput svilenog vela
u dahu vjetra
koji otvara vrata u nebo,
do prelomljene prizme duše.

Kleopatra luta sobama
u blijedom jesenjem danu,
gdje vrijeme razgrađuje hijeroglife i kodove
reflektovane na mokrim zidovima
sa njenim likom.

Topot udaljenih koraka
budi uzdahe
u tihoj šumi,
ogoljenoj od grijeha.
Nevidljivo luta
u tužnim nanosima
neshvatljivog svijeta,
gdje se iluzija gubi
u tihom prostoru
i zaustavlja se na pragu limba
od srebrne magle…
Obavija večernji vazduh,
onda se penje gore
na Andromedinu fotelju
u sobi zatamnjenom noću
i samo se gasi
u njegovom svjetlu…
———————————————–
In his light …

Sounds of eras
In eternal melodies
awaken from visions
of ancient castles,
that reign legendary
in mystic colors
in fluid tones,
in the white alley
where we stretches our arms …

Widespread aromas of musk
and migratory birds fleeing
that fly away …
and they fall
suddenly,
like a silk veil
in a breath of wind,
which opens the door to heaven,
to the refracted prism of the soul …

Cleopatra is wandering through the rooms …
On a pale autumn day
where time breaks down hieroglyphs and codes
reflected in wet walls,
with her image …

Trampling of distant steps
awake sighs
in silent woods,
bare from sins ..
The invisible wanders
in sad drifts
of an incomprehensible world
where the illusion is lost
in the silent space ..
and stops at the threshold of limbo
of a silver mist …
envelops the evening air,
then it climbs up
on the Andromedea armchair
in rooms darkened by night …l
and it turn itself off
in his light…

Your biography
Juljana Mehmeti ( Albania- Italy)

Juljana Mehmeti was born in the city of Durres, in Albania.
Since she was a child she became fond about literature and writing, especially poetry, a genre that in the following years will turn into a real life motive, a way to better express her ideas, her thoughts, her visions and metaphysics , her point of view according to her consciousness but also improving the awareness of the same suggestion that surrounds the human world. The first book “Soft – Poems” published in Italian language attracted the attention of publishers and Italian literary criticism, not only for its particular style, but also for new words, the language used, the philosophical message and the currents present in her poems that go from Hermetism to Surrealism. The second book comes from the field of translation entitled “Vramendje” – (Rimugino “) of the Italian author Alessandro Ferrucci Marcucci Pinoli, which will constitute the first experience in this field, but will also strengthen his long-standing conviction, to know and translate in his language, many popular Italian authors.. The collection of poems “Oltrepassare” is her new book, which presents itself with the new tendencies of Albanian literature, postmodernism and universal consciousness, from experimental currents to absurdity. She published in English language “In his light” (Demer Press, 2019 and in Italian language “Namasté” (Libri di – Versi in Diversi Libri- 2020). She currently lives and works in Ancona, Italy.

Noćna melodija

Noć i njeni tamni zraci prekrili su grad.
Šetam gradom sam
sa mojom sjenkom.
Sa lakoćom udišem hladnoću u pluća. Noge me nose kroz ulice, krivudave staze, metroe, sokake.
Okolne kuće lijepo blistaju. Ljudi tamo zvuče lijepo, a nedaleko odatle gradska buka i dalje odjekuje.
Koče vozovi, bruje automobili, duva vjetar.
Kroz tiši noćni grad prolaze tiši zvuci.
Život noću je drugačiji.
Tajanstven, kao neotkrivena tajna.
Kao neriješena slagalica.
Priča nikad ispričana.
Hodam pod noćnim nebom.
Glatko hodam u noćni svijet.
Upravo tako.
Kuće, uglovi ulica i noćna svjetla. Kutci, kuće,
otrcane ograde, a opet lijepe.
Sve je lijepo
pod noćnim pokrivačem ušuškano.
Noć se razlikuje od dana.
Noć može biti prilično živahna,
ali volim onu mirnu, kad osjetiš
da je jedina stvar koja te grije samo ona.
Trenutak kada se sve usporava i dolazi samo sjećanje na dan.
Kad povratimo snagu
i pređemo na druge ciljeve dok dan iza ugla čeka.
Tako je lijepa kada obuče svoj zvjezdani ogrtač i podsjeti nas da
postoji beskonačnost iznad nas i mi smo u njoj i tu je naša budućnost i postoje naši snovi koje ponekad
prošapućemo zvijezdama.
Opustićemo se s tobom, draga noći.
S tobom se uvijek sjetimo kako volimo mir, harmoniju i prijatnu melodiju.
Noćnu melodiju.

Melódia noci

Noc a jej temné paprsky prikryli mesto.
Kráčam mestom sám so svojim tieňom.
Chladný vzducch s ľahkosťou vdychujem do pľúc.
Moje nohy nesú ma ulicami, krivými chodníkmi, podchodmi, uličkami.
V okolitých domoch pekne svieti sa.
Tam ľudia pekne znejú a opodiaľ zasa zvuky mesta stále čuť.
Vlaky brzdiace, auta hučiace, vetrík fučiaci.
Tichšie nočným mestom, tichšie zvuky nesú sa.
Život v noci iný je.
Tajomný ako neodkryté tajomstvo tajné.
Ako nevyriešená hádanka.
Príbeh nevypovedaný.
Pod nočnou oblohou kráčam.
Nočným svetom si to šibem.
Len tak popri, domy, rohy ulíc a nočných svetiel.
Zákutia, domy, ploty ošumelé a pritom krásne.
Všetko pekne pod nočnou prikrývkou zahalené.
Noc je iná ako deň.
Noc vie byť pekne živá.
Ja milujem však tú pokojnú, keď cítiš, že jediné, čo na duši hreje ťa, je iba ona.
Moment, kedy všetko spomalí sa a príde už len spomienka dňa.
Kedy znovu naberieme silu a pustíme sa do ďalších cieľov za rohom čakajúceho dňa.
Je tak krásna, keď oblečie si svoj hviezdny plášť a pripomína nám,
že tam nad nami je nekonečno a v ňom sme my a v ňom je naša budúcnosť a sú tam i naše sny,
ktoré hviezdam občas šepkáme.
Pri tebe si drahá noc oddýchneme.
Pri tebe si vždy spomenieme na to,
ako milujeme pokoj, harmóniu a príjemnú melódiu.
Melódiu noci.

Night Melody

Night and its dark rays covered the city.
I walk around the city alone with my shadow.
I breathe cold air into my lungs with ease.
My feet carry me through the streets, crooked walkways, subways, alleyways.
The surrounding houses shine nicely.
People there sound nice, and from not so far away, the sounds of the city still echo.
Braking trains, humming cars, wind blowing.
Through quieter night city, quieter sounds flow.
Life at night is different.
Mysterious as an uncovered secret.
Like an unsolved puzzle.
Story never told.
I walk under the night sky.
Smoothly walking in the night world.
Just like that.
Houses, street corners and night lights.
Nooks, houses, shabby fences and yet beautiful.
Everything nicely under the night blanket draped.
Night is different than day.
Night can be pretty lively.
But I love the calm one when you feel that the only thing that warms you is only her.
The moment when everything slows down and only the memory of the day comes.
When we regain strength and move on to other targets around the corner of the waiting day.
She is so beautiful when she puts on her star cloak and reminds us that
there is infinity above us, and we are in it, and there is our future, and there are our dreams that we sometimes
whisper to the stars.
We will relax with you, dear night.
With you we always remember how we love peace, harmony and a pleasant melody.
Night melody.
