Poem for the 4th and 5th round (Final / Grand Final): (TRANSLATION INTO MONTENEGRIN + YOUR NATIVE / ENGLISH LANGUAGE )
Imitacija Ahmatove

Tvoj bolni uzdah nisam čula.
Samo mi je pred očima Zemljina rana.
Visok si, sjediš ispred vremena, –
Samo zamoli, kako bih te poljubila.

I učiniću to, voljeni, – ukloniću ti bol,
makar na trenutak.
Ispostaviće se – bol ovaj izlizani
nikada neće uslišiti vrisak.

Translated to Montenegrin by Anđela Turukalo Dabetić

Подражание Ахматовой

Твоего я не слышала стона.
Лишь в глазах вижу раны Земли.
Ты висок,- седой раньше времени, –
Поцеловать меня попроси.

И я сделаю это, любимый, –
Унесу твою боль хоть на миг.
А получится – боли постылой
Никогда не услышать твой крик.

Something special about you!
To introduce myself, I am Yelena Aslanyan, live in Yerevan; I am married, with an adult son and a daughter. My first profession was related to programming; I worked in this profession for more than twenty years and delivered lectures in university. I wrote my first stories about twenty years ago, and they were immediately accepted for publishing in “thick” literature magazines. Recognition from readers was followed by the recognition of literary critics. As my prose passed the test of time, I had to make a choice – it was already impossible to combine my beloved work as a programmer and my vocation of a writer. I chose literature and journalism. I am a multiple laureate of literary awards. In particular, my novel “Three Distiches”, depicting the collapse of the USSR and the formation of new realities in the post-Soviet space, twice became the winner of international literary contests, and the chronicle novel “Compressed into Diamonds” about modern Armenia became the silver award winner of the “Open Eurasia 2020”. In addition, I became the winner of “Open Eurasia 2022” in the genre of Dramaturgy. And also I am the winner of the ECG Eurasian Film Festival 2019 in the Book Trailer nomination.
What do you think is the main problem of peace in your country? Suggest solutions to us, and how to bring and preserve peace in your country with poetry?
I think that Armenia’s problems stem from the incompetence of our elite, as well as some stubbornness and short-sightedness of the common people. The solution to a problem of this magnitude is to see a leader, including a Poet, who could very accurately and concisely open the eyes of everyone.
List of the published books:
Author of five books and seven collections, five of which are international (some books and works were published under the pseudonym Inana).
