Secret Gate

Wings stirred under the furniture and at the end of the hall
the dark mirror made the children often sick, because they
didn’t want to grow up,
mother cried and beg me to come down, but my fate was
to walk on the ceiling, my own battle, mother, where I was
the only dead.
For this I knew the subterranean secret gate of the skies.

~Tasos Livaditis, ‘Diaspora’

Μυστική Πύλη

Φτερούγες σάλευαν κάτω απ’ τά έπιπλα, καί στό βάθος
ο σκοτεινός καθρέφτης έκανε τά παιδιά ν’ αρρωσταίνουν συχνά,
γιατί δέν ήθελαν νά μεγαλώσουν,
η μητέρα έκλαιγε καί μέ παρακαλούσε νά κατέβω, μά εμένα
ήταν η μοίρα μου νά περπατάω στό ταβάνι, μιά μάχη δική μου,
μητέρα, όπου πάντα ο νεκρός ήμουν εγώ.
Γι’ αυτό ήξερα καί τών ουρανών τή μυστική υπόγεια πύλη.

~Τάσος Λειβαδίτης, ‘Διασπορά’


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.
