ΑΡΚΤΟΥΡΟΣ

Ὁδηγητής τῶν ἑφτά βοδιῶν
πού λειβαδεύουν στό βιλαέτι τῆς ἔγνοιας σου
ἀθροίζεις τόν ἕωλο αἰῶνα.
Ἔχτισες τά σύνορα τοῦ ἀγῶνα σου
μέ τέσσερες σταγόνες παγωμένου ἱδρῶτα
σέ σχῆμα λάβαρου σταυροφόρων.
Ὦ Ἀλκάλουροψ,
πλοηγέ τοῦ γέλιου τῶν παιδιῶν
καί ἀλφαβητάρι τῶν γερόντων.
Στέκεις ἀνάμεσα στή γκρίζα ἡλικία τῶν βράχων
καί τραγουδεῖς στή φλογέρα σου
τό μόχτο τοῦ θάνατου
τοῦ ἰσχυροῦ καί ἀθάνατου.

ARCTURUS

Guide of the seven bulls
that graze in the kingdom of your concern
you measure the stagnate century.
You’ve built the borders of your struggle
with four drops of frozen sweat
in the shape of the crusaders banner.
Oh, Alkalurops
navigator of the children’s laughter
and alphabet of the elders.
You stand amid the gray age of rocks
and with your flute you sing about
the labor of death
of both the powerful and the immortal.

~Δημήτρη Λιαντίνη, “Οι Ώρες των Άστρων”/Μετάφραση Μανώλη Αλυγιζάκη
~Dimitris Liantinis, “Hour of the Stars”/Translated by Manolis Aligizakis

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.
