WALK ALBEIT THE ROAD IS ENDLESS
YOU ARE WORTHLESS IF YOU LOOK ONLY THROUGH DISTANCE
GET TO THE ROAD THROUGH YOUR LIVING HEART
NOT JUST LIVING BODY THAT COULD BE NON HUMAN'S
2
WALK TO LIVING WELL
CIRCLE LIKE A WHEEL AS THE MOON CIRCLES
THERE IS YOR SOUL CIRCLING,FRIEND
AND WHAT CIRCLES COMES FROM CIRCLES
3
I WALKED THROUGH YOUR DESERT OF LOVE
TO FIND UNION WITH YOU
BUT IN EVERY WALK
A FALLEN CORP AND A SKULL
4
TONIGHT THAT I AM COMPETING WITH MOON AND JUPITER
I AM WALKING WITH MY SWEETHEARTS
DRUNKEN WITH GORGEOUS WINE
IT IS ALL I WANTED TONIGHT
*

On the day I die don't weep
Death has nothing to do with going away
The sun sets and the moon sets
But they are not gone

*FROM MATTAPONI RIVER

MAN ARRIVED
WITH EMPTY PADDLES
AND THE RED WING FLUTTERED
ON THE WIND WITH HIM.
WE CIRCLED ON A CIRCLE
ON KHAYYAM POTTERY AND WINE
AND THE WORLD WAS EMPTY.
ON COUGHING FLAMES
FIREPLACE WAS BURNING
IN THE RED MEMORY OF DREAM CATCHERS
AND TOTEM CHEST,
BUT DUST
WAS NOT DANCING.

*DON QUIXOTUS SHAKESPEAREUS

don quixote de la mancha and sacho panza according to pablo picasso

They will not forgive me.I'm sure they won't.I am talking about
DON QUIXOTUS SHAKESPEAREUS of April 23,1616
who was dead or just out at bloody birth spread by a preGennerian sterile midwife's hands in Stratford of Avon or freshly dead in Madrid with Sancho Panza and Rocinante submerged into their own tears, in vertical position while Cervantes de Savaadra peeking through window.
I am scared of their witty sarcasm and revenge without pitty,so I hereby call them out loud by their names. after all these guys taught us how to be paranoid kings and queens,not to mention jealous lovers and avid traitors in good practice,and may be accidental poets and writers too.
So I tip my National Baseball team cap in red,weather always looser or ocasional winner,before saying :
HOLA,HI ,HASTA LA VISTA AMIGOS,MY FRIENDS,GOOD DAY.SEE YA NEXT APRIL 23RD.

*TAGHI MODARRESI DRAWING THE WORLD
WITH A HUMBLE MOUTH

modified 10092010

Not long ago,I lost a good friend ,a literary and medical and scholar colleague,who died on April 23rd.1997 in Baltimore,Maryland.I am talking about Dr.Mohammad Taghi Modarressi,M.D. who was writing with his pen name:Taghi Modarressi,and his name and voice is still alive and with us.
In Iran of 1330's/1950's and 1340's/1960's ,when I started writing and publishing,there were three physicians who were considered pioneer writers among others like Jamalzadeh ,Hedayat and Chubak,and before new generation of writers like Golestan,Daneshvar Golshiri and Dolatabadi...Dr.Bahram Sadeghi,M.D.an avant-garde short story writer was a general surgeon who wrote a novella named: Malakut ,one of the finest oeuvre and greatly influential in Iranian modern stories.Dr.Thaghi Modarressi,M.D. ,later a psychitrist,psychanalyst and child psychiatrist, and professor of University of Maryland,was presented by Yakolia Va Tanhai  u,a poetical novel influenced by old religious stories.Dr.Gholamhossein Saedi,M.D.a popular playright,also a psychiatrist who taught in University of Tehran Medical School and later exiled and died in Paris.It was not a matter of surprise that these and other physicians like Dr Kassemi,Dr.Gol Golab,the  professors of Tehran University Medical School or Dr Golchin Gilane among others were involved in literary creation while studying or practicing medicine,as both fields are in daily challenges and thoughts with life and love,acompanied eternally with death,as well.Both literature and medicine are healers,of mind and body,and both are created in love of nature and its creatures.Men and women are both green products and producers of art and literature,as well as medicine and health, among other sciences ,to make our world more beatiful from the beginning of life to eternity...And John Updike ,the late American writer,seems to agree with this, in Endpoint,his book of poems...
To think of you brings tears less caustic
than those the thought of death brings.
Perhaps we meet our heaven at the start and not
the end of life.
-F.S.

چرا  می نویسم

WHY DO I WRITE?

ONCE A POET
ALWAYS A POET
POETS NEVER DIE




mask I.by: moj
FARAMARZ SOLEIMANI
نوشتن حرفه یی را من در شانزده ساله گی با روزنامه نگاری و سینما نویسی آغاز کردم .و - هم به سینما و هم به سینما نویسی و تئاترهمیشه
با رویکرد فلسفی نگریستم
بیش از ۹۰  در صد فیلم ها به ویژه فیلم های هالیوودی البته برای سرگرمی تهیه می شود و به عنوان کلی تجاری
عرضه می گردد  اما از ان میان فیلم هایی هم هست که بطور ریشه یی  به مقولات ازلی-آبدی مانند عشق و هستی و مرگ می پردازد
که مقولات مورد نگرش و  نگارش من هم هست،در عرصه ی نوشتن و همین هاست که در شعر و در نقد ادبی
 پی گرفته ام
البته سینما از این اقبال برخورداراست که همه هنرهای دیگر را بکار می گیرد و از این نظر روح جستجوگر را با رویکردی همگانی سیراب می سازد و فرصتی دیگر برای اندیشیدن پیش می آورد یا جایی برای پرواز خیال و رویا
بدین ترتیب سینمای ناب شاید نزدیک ترین هنر به شعر باشد که والا ترین هنرها و مادر همه ی آنهاست
و هنرمند راستین می کوشد به شعر دست یابد و در آن ببالد

~WRITING IS BEGENNING THE WORLD BY WORDS
IN THE JOURNAL OF MY LONG JOURNEY OF LIFE.
AND LIFE BEGINS IN PEN AND PAPER.
F.S.
اول فکری که به مغز من در موقع طرح فلان شعر یا غیر آن پیدا می شود تعیین احتیاج است،
-برای چه می نویسم؟ برای که می نویسم ؟
-نیما
*WHY DO I WRITE?
QUESTION FIRST?
Is the word BLOG the same as BELAGH,like in BELAGHAT,meaning eloquence,and also sending out messages and news?
is BLOGGER the same as BALIGH,the one who is eloquent,and /or sending out messages and news?

WHAT I WRITE IS A VARIATION OF FACTS AND FEELINGS,PERCEPTIONS,CONCEPTS,LOGIC,DREAMS AND REVERIES,BY CHOICE OR FREE FLOW AND FREELANCE.
WHAT I BLOG IS THIS MIXTURE BUT NOT WITH MUCH OF CHOICE.
I BLOG TO REACH THE POINT THAT I WRITE.IT TAKES 10 000 HOURS,MEANING 10 OOO SPACE AND TIME TO BE MASTERED IN,BECAUSE ACCORDING TO NEUROSCIENTISTS IT NEEDS 10 000 HOURS OF PRACTICE TO BE MASTER IN ANY FIELDS.
WITH PEN,PENCIL AND PAPER I HAVE PLENTY OF PRACTICE.WITH BLOG I AM NEW AND I BOW.BUT I DO NOT BOW OUT .I NEVER DID.THAT'S WHY I WRITE.NOT AS A ROBOT,BUT A WRITER.IT IS A VENUE STARTED FROM SOMEWHERE BETWEEN CASPIAN SEA AND PERSIAN GULF,GOING TO NEW YORK HARBOR AND CHESAPEAKE BAY.
IT 'LL CONTINUE...
WRITING IS REBELLION.
ONCE I WROTE: WRITING IS REBELLION.A REBELLION AGAINST WORDS ORDER AND FOUNDING A NEW SYSTEM FOR THEM TO MAKE A NEW REALITY ON THE BASIS OF PRESENT REALITY, TO CHANGE THE WORLD AND BEING. WRITING IS CRETING NEW VALUES FOR HUMAN BEINGS, A LINK OR TIE TO OPEN COMPLEXITY OR BRING ABOUT YOUNG AND NEW TIES.LITERARY CRITICISM AND TRANSLATING TO AND FRO OTHER LANGUAGES LOOKS LIKE SUCH A REBELLION TOO.ONE WHO WRITES DISRUPTS THE OLD TRADITION TO CAUSE A NEW TRADITION,AND WITH OWN METAMOPHOSIS,PROVIDE MEANS FOR METAMORPHOSIS OF MEN AND WOMEN ,AND THE BEING.WRITER AS A CREATOR OF WORD IS NOT THE ONE WHO WAS YESTERDAY,AND WILL NOT BE THE ONE OF TOMORROW.HESHE ,IN A LOOK AT OLD PAST AND A WILL OF NEW FUTURE CRYSTALLIZES IN DREAMS,AND IN THIS EVER CHANGING PROCESS,TAKES EVERYBODY WITH HIMHER TO CHANGE.
WRITING IS THIS THIRST FOR INNOVATION,RESTLESSNESS FOR REBELLION.TO CUT A FIGURE AND BREAKING IT DOWN,TO CREATE A NEW FIGURE.EACH NEW FIGURE COMES WITH NEW MOTIVES IN SHAPE OF AN EMBRYO,TO BE BORN SOON AND GROW AND DIE,TO MAKE ROOM FOR NEWER MOTIVES AND EMBRYO AND SOUL,TO TAKE SHAPE .THIS NATURAL AND MAGICAL CHAIN WILL CONTINUE IN WRITERS' IMAGES AND LANGUAGE TO A LIVING REVOLUTION,BEATING CONSTANTLY AND LIFE-BESTOWING.

WRITING FROM THE BEGINNING IS FALLING IN LOVE WITH HUMAN BEINGS AND THEIR IMAGINATION.IT IS A QUEST OF MEANING IN AN UNCONVENTIONAL WAY.IT IS PEELING OFF A JUICY FRUIT WITHOUT EVEN TASTING IT.IT IS THE TASTE OF BEGINNING,LIKE THE BEGINNING OF ALWAYS:

THE BEGINNING OF ALWAYS
AS THE WORLD PASSES THROUGH US
THERE REMAINS THE IMAGE OF OUR STAY
AND WE SEE OURSLVES AND THE WORLD MIGRATING
THROUGH A PASSAGE
THAT PASSES THROUGH US.
BEFORE GAZING AT YOU
I,TOO,WAS ENTIRELY THE DESIRE OF GAZING AT YOU...

AS I MENTIONED,WRITING IS BEGEMMING OF THE WORLD BY WORDS IN THE JOURNAL OF MY LONG JOURNEY IN LIFE.I WRITE TO REFLECT MY PERCEPTION OF LIFE AND BEING AND LOVE.IWRITE TO REFLECT MY REACTION TO LIFE.LIFE WHICH IS GOING ON AROUND US IN THE BIG WAR ZONES,IN MASS GRAVES,WITH HTRED ,BLEEDING,RAPE AND HUNGRY SOUL AND DEATH...ALSO LIFE IS GOING AROUND US WITH LOVE.SO ALL THESE ARE IN WRITING AND I AM WRITING OF THESE.
