Icy Love



[tab title=”English”]

Manolis Aligizakis

Erotic embrace
of crystalline ice
with tree branch
that it won’t break
that it won’t lose it
in its endless love
it shrouds it
with the wings of death

you hear them
dry creaks
cracked sighs
of pain and agony
of tears dropping
on the frozen street

“Autumn Leaves”-Unpublished Book

Μανώλης Αλυγιζάκης

Παγωμένη Αγάπη

Ερωτική περίπτυξη
κρύσταλλου που αγκαλιάζει
δέντρου κλαδί
μην και του σπάσει
μην και το χάσει
κι απ’ την αγάπη
την πολλή
ο πάγος το σκεπάζει
με του θανάτου τα φτερά

κι ακούς ξερούς
και ραγισμένους στεναγμούς
πόνου και αγωνίας
κλαδιών που σπάζοντας
πέφτουν στον παγωμένο δρόμο

“Φύλλα Φθινοπώρου”-Ανέκδοτο Βιβλίο



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.

  1. Very good Manolis,
    And when the writer himself is able to translate in two languages all the thoughts and meaning comes across bright and colorful.

    thank you
