On a Ray of Winter Light

Translation by Manolis Aligizakis


[tab title=”Translation”]


Some years ago you said
‘Basically I am a matter of light.’
And still today when you lean
on the wide shoulders of sleep
even when they anchor you
to the drowsy breast of pelagos
you search in corners where blackness
has turned thin with no resistance
you grope for the spear
that spear destined to pierce your heart
and open it to the light.

~George Seferis,
Translation by Manolis Aligizakis

Είπες εδώ καί χρόνια:
“Κατά βάθος είμαι ζήτημα φωτός”.
Καί τώρα ακόμη σάν ακουμπάς
στίς φαρδιές ωμοπλάτες τού ύπνου
ακόμη κι όταν σέ ποντίζουν
στό ναρκωμένο στήθος τού πελάγου
ψάχνεις γωνιές όπου τό μαύρο
έχει τριφτεί καί δέν αντέχει
αναζητάς ψηλαφητά τή λόγχη
τήν ορισμένη νά τρυπήσει τήν καρδιά σου
γιά νά τήν ανοίξει στό φώς.

~ Γιώργος Σεφέρης



Aligizakis Manolis

By Aligizakis Manolis

Manolis (Emmanuel Aligizakis) is a Greek-Canadian poet and author. He was recently appointed an honorary instructor and fellow of the International Arts Academy, and awarded a Master’s for the Arts in Literature. He is recognized for his ability to convey images and thoughts in a rich and evocative way that tugs at something deep within the reader. Born in the village of Kolibari on the island of Crete in 1947, he moved with his family at a young age to Thessaloniki and then to Athens, where he received his Bachelor of Arts in Political Sciences from the Panteion University of Athens. After graduation, he served in the armed forces for two years and emigrated to Vancouver in 1973, where he worked as an iron worker, train labourer, taxi driver, and stock broker, and studied English Literature at Simon Fraser University. He has written three novels and numerous collections of poetry, which are steadily being released as published works. His articles, poems and short stories in both Greek and English have appeared in various magazines and newspapers in Canada, United States, Sweden, Hungary, Slovakia, Romania, Australia, and Greece. He now lives in White Rock, where he spends his time writing, gardening, traveling, and heading Libros Libertad, an unorthodox and independent publishing company which he founded in 2006 with the mission of publishing literary books.
