MASUD MINAVI(1319/1940-1387/2008)


MASUD MINAVI,A WRITER FROM KUT ABDOLLAH   مسعود مینا وی

modified 4.10.2012
(b.AHVAZ , 1 FARVARDIN 1319/MAR 21,1940-
d.5 MORDAD 1387/JUL 27,2008,TEHRAN,also recorded 7.24.2008)

MINAVI SAYS :
WHEN I WRITE I AM NOT LONELY ANYMORE...
I WRITE BECAUSE I MAKE THE  BITTERNESS OF THE WORLD DETOXIFIED .FOR ME WRITING IS ESCAPING THE NIGHTMARES OF LONELINESS AND REACHING A SECURE PLACE,JOINING A PERSON WHO DOES NOT KNOW ME BUT UNDERSTANDS ME,BELIEVES ME AND ACCEPTS MY MESSAGE.THE ONE WHO IS WITH ME AND ON MY SIDE.I FEEL HE/SHE NEEDS ME AS I NEED HIM/HER.I ALSO TICKLE THEM ON THEIR SLEEPING CONSCIOUSNESS.
from DONYAYE SOKHAN MONTHLY,#17,P.16,FARVARDIN 1367/1988.Tr;F.S.

BOOKS UNDER PRINT BY MASUD MINAVI:
OLD MAN,SUMMER AND PAPER FLOWER   پیرمرد ،تابستان ،و گل کاغذی

THIS ABADANI KID WHO WAS BORN IN KUT ABDOLLAH QUARTER OF AHVAZ,IN KHUZESTAN PROVINCE of Iran ,WROTE SHORT STORIES FOR 40 YEARS ,BUT HE REALLY WAS A MASTER OF ORAL STORY TELLING.HE had LIVED LONG WITH HIS HEROES AND ANTI HERDOES ON LANGD AND SEA.On boats and on foot.
My dear Masud WAS SO LONELY ESPECIALLY WHEN HE LOST HIS MYNA BIRD:MINA,AND NOW WE ARE LONELY TOO WITHOUT HEARING HIS HAPPY VOICE,TELLING US HIS STORIES OF THE PERSIAN GULF ,THE SOUTH ,THE PORTS AND THEIR PEOPLE LIKE FISHERMEN AND SEAMEN IN THE BLUE LANDSCAPE WITH THEIR TRADITIONAL FISHING BOATS and long white Deshdasheh,as he was always wearing it  in our night gatherings.

This was published in my book:AVAZHAYE IRANI,and dated Shahrivar 1366/1987

می نوشد آفتاب
از تن تشنه ی شن 
آشفته می شود
نگاه برگ 
بر شاخه ها 
مهمیز رود 
می زند زخمی 
می درد با د 
حجاب غبارین را 
پرواز گرده 
فاش می شود 
بر آشیان سبز 
می لمد خورشید 
می رود 
رگان نخلستان 
در تن تشنه ی شن

The sun drinks
from thirsty body of the sand 
the gaze of leaves 
goes on tumult  
on branches
the spur of river
brings a wound
the wind
rips
 the dusty veil
flight of pollen
becomes clear
on the green nest
lies down the sun
the veins of palm grove
goes to
thirsty body of the sand

*WHAT IS THE COLOR OF LOVE
(to be read in Myrtle Beach)
.....

*EPITHALAMIUM AVALON:

IN AVALON OF ATLAS

BY MYRIAD OF MIRTHY MYRTLES

AND ROWS OF EVER GREEN WOODBOX,

I SEE YOUR SHADOW.

IN SEVEN SPACES

OF EMERALD AND SAPHIRE SKY,

I EXTEND MY HANDS

TO REACH YOUR HANDS

AND CARESS YOUR SKIN.

WE LIVE IN A PARADISE,

PARADISE IS AN ISLAND IN LIVING OCEAN

WE BUILD A PARADISE

IN THE LAND

AND ISLAND

AT
SEA

AND OCEAN.

LOVE IS AVALON OF ATLAS

IN SHADOWS OF WOODBOX AND MYRTLES.
(in myrtle beach)

*EPITHALMIUM SALTUS

IT TAKES A MAGIC LEAP
FOR TWO SOLO SOULS
TO LAND ON THE MOON.
A BOWL OF HONEY
IN BALL ROOM
IS READY
FOR BRIDE AND GROOM
IN HIGH STEPS
WITH BRIDESMAIDS
AND GROOMSMEN
IN POSITION
FOR WEDDING PROCESSION
DOWN THE AISLE.
LET'S ROCK AND ROLL.
LET'S TRY THIS
WITH PERFORMING
LOVE POETRY AND PROSE
AND OF COURSE
SIGHTS AND SONDS
OF FOLK DANCE
FROM THE VERY BEGINNING.
A DANCE WITH
HONEYMOON BEATS
TO GRAB THE MOMENT
IN GREEN
IN WHITE
IN RED
IN RAINBOW.

NOTE:
ONE WONDERS WHY AT THE WEDDING CEREMONIES,BRIDE AND GROOM SHOULD ALWAYS BE QUIETLY SITTING AND ONLY WHISPERING TO EACH OTHER EARS,WITH OCCASIONAL SMILES.
BUT NOT MUCH MOTION AND DANCING,ESPCIALLY
WHEN SOMEONE OFFICIATING AND PREPARING THEM TO TAKE PATH FOR FUTURE LIFE?
WHY NOT ENTERING THE AISLE,AND ENTERTAINIG WITH THEIR FUTURE AT HANDS,WHILE DANCING,LIKE THE BRIDE AND GROOM IN ST.PAUL,MINNEOSOTA,THIS LAST MONTH?
THE GATES OF DANCE ARENA ARE OPEN AND THIS IS THE BEST TIME,AS SEEN IN SOME CULTURES,TO DANCE IN,RATHER THAN WALK IN AND THEN SITTING QUIETLY.
LET'S TRY IT .
I SAVE THIS ONE FOR NEXT TIME!
(in Tina's Puerto Vallarta,Mexico again)

FOR MORE WEDDING POEMS, SEE:
POETRY/COM/DR.FARAMARZ SOLEIMANI/EPITHALAMIUM
YOU ARE GOING TO SEE SOME OF THESE POEMS OF WEDDING,IN THIS CORNER.
I CALL THEM ARUSSANEH,IN FARSI/PERSIAN.
and here are some older ones
from 1995 and on...
1
EPITHALAMIUM - 1
*THE FIRST EPITHALAMIUM :
THE FIRST EPITHALAMIUM
WITH WHITE LIMOSINE AND LILLY
SOUNDS LIKE THE FIRST LOVE
OR ESHGH E AVVAL
IN WHAT I WROTE LONG AGO
TO SEIZE THE MOMENTS
DOGWOOD AND JUNIPERS
IN MOCKINGBIRD POND
BUT STILL SONOROUS
AND SINGING SOUND
SO I AM
SONOROUS WITH SERENADES
OF A MARBLE COURT
IN DA FIRST EPITHALAMIUM
JUST TO SAY
HAPPY LOVE AND TOGETHERNESS
HAPPY LOVE AND LOVERS
SO TO SAY TO LOVED ONES
(written to be added for recital in Arlington,Virginia
for ida and siamak)

...

THEN I CALLED LOVE
DEEP IN MY THROAT
AND LOVR WAS PRESENT
IN A LONG WHITE DRESS
AND LOVE
WAS ABSENT
IN ETHEREAL SPACE
AS IN A HALO
OR SUN DUST
AND THEN I CALLED LOVE
TIME AND AGAIN
AND THE EARTH NOW
BECAME RED HOT
OF THE CALL OF LOVE
IN A VERSE
OF REUNION


3
IN A VERSE
OF REUNION
ALL THE WORDS
ARE FLESH AND SOUL
OF THE WORLD HOLDING HANDS
IN TOGETHERNESS,
SINGING ALONG
IN GREEN MELODY
OF LOVE
WITH LAVANDER
AND NIGHTINGALES
SHARING THE BLUE SKY.
LOVE IS A LANDSCAPE
IN THE RAINBOW.


4
IN A LANDSCAPE OF LOVE
WHEN I BRING A HAND FORWARD
AND YOU BRING A HAND
FORWARD
WITH BLOOMING FINGERS
BRANCHING IN THE AIR
TO CALL LOVE LOUD.
HANDS ARE THE WORDS
AND SO ARE
OUR LOVING FINGERS
TO WRITE DOWN
A VERSE OF REUNION.
LOVE IS A NEW UNIVERSE.

EPITHALAMIUM
WEDDING MARCH OF MENDELSSOHN:
BREEZE,SOFTLY IN HASTE
WITH NAKED SHOULDERS
ON THE ROAD
RIDING CARRIAGE OF BLOSSOMS
IN PURE PINK AND PALE.
NIGHT IN AMBUSH
BUTTERFLY WITH WALLFLOWER.
ALLUSION TO HIDDEN SUN
TO RUSH OUT.
A PRAISEWORTHY DAWN
WANDERING AROUND WITH JOY
TO CARESS THE SUN OF THE NIGHT'
THE ETERNAL BRIDE IN WHITE.
NIGHT IN ETERNAL DREAMS.
AND SINGER OF THE LONG NIGHT
SOBER AND VIGILANT
FOR JUBILATION.
(to save for Nima)

EPITHALAMIUM

ROSE AND NIGHINGALE;
rose in prose
a prose rose
in Paris or the others
I waited for rose
in prose of garden
she did not appear
and then
there was rain of
rose
in prose
and nightingales
flew in flocks
to share joy
and happines
in this happening extraordinaire.
I am not lonely o babe!
no o baby baby!
love is a night of nightingales
and roses.

دو با مانع ,به کوشش فرامرز سلیمانی,بوذرجمهری,١٣٦٩
منوچهر نیستانی را در کنار کتاب دیروز خط فاصله به عنوان شاعری که به ارزش های کلامی و قدرت ترکیب آن پی برده می شناسیم .تصویری که او از انسان به دست می دهد تصویر انسان همروزگار ماست که تحقیر می شود و بر کارش ارزش نهاده نمی شود .طنز او اجتماعی است ,همچنان که غزل هایش فراز های تاریخ را در طرح مردان و زنان عادی یک شهر بیان می کند .به مرگ می اندیشد و زندگی را دمی ناپایدار می یابد و خود را در برابر آن ناتوان می بیند. سرود های عاشقانه ی لطیفی را سر می دهد که سر شر موسیقی است .
او " در خته ی فکر های خیامی است و از مرگ اندیشی قوی برخوردار .شعرش تلخ است .ادعا نامه یی پر طنز است و تفی به صورت زندگی پرت پست پوچ که هیچ است و بر سر هیچ های و هویی . خیال مرگ است در نزع که خود خالی بی سخنی است .شاعر یغما زده ی سال و ماه از دست داده یی است که با بغضی شکسته در گلو گرفتار کابوس زوال است و راستی که چه مایه از آرزو با اوست؟ او نماینده نسلی از شاعران  بل نماینده ی نسل هایی از مردم ماست که اسیر توطیه  های خائنانه ی دستگاه های حکومتی شدند .دستگاه هایی که تمام کوششان صرف ویران کردن ذهنیت های خلق و خالقان فرهنگ ایرانی بود ."

I DEDICATE THIS NOTE TO : IDA AND SUSIE,WHO LOVED the poem : GOL UMAD,BAHAR UMADگل اومد بهار اومد  ,AND RECITED IT FOR SURPRISED AMU MANUCHEHR ,IN FRONT OF IRANSHAHR SCHOOL,Tehran,dated back to 1354/1975
also TO DR.KHOSRO NEYESTANI,A WRITER,GOOD FRIEND AND COLLEAGUE OF 15 YEARS ,
and ALSO TO AZAR NEYESTANI,TUKA NEYESTANI,MANA NEYESTANI... TO TOFIGH BROTHERS,AND A GOOD FRIEND OF ALL OF US :
BIJAN ASSADIPOUR OF DAFTAR-HONAR.
THIS IS THE BIRTHDAY OF MANUCHEHR NEYESTANI,POET,TEACHER AND  FRIEND WHO WAS BORN IN KERMAN,4 MORDAD 1315/ JULY 26,,1936 AND PASSED AWAY IN TEHRAN ON 27 ESFAND 1360/MARCH 18,1981.

IN MANUCHEHR NEYESTANI'S WORKS ONE MAY FIND THESE CHARACTERISTCS:
TENDENCY TOWARDS CLASSICAL AND TRADITIONAL FORMS ,TO THE POINT THAT
HIS MAJOR POEMS ARE WRITTEN IN FORM OF GHAZAL OR GHAZAL-LIKE /GHAZALVAREH FOLLOWED AND IMITATED BY OTHER POETS SUCH AS  Esmail KHOI.
HE OCCASIONALLY ALLUDED THIS FORM BY FOLLOWING NIMA AND NIMAI POETRY.
NEYESTANI USED SATIRE AS THE MAJOR PARADIGM IN HIS POETRY TO DRAW THE REALITIES OF ERA HE LIVED in. HE WAS mastered and IN COMMAND OF HIS TRADITIONALLY STRUCTURED LANGUAGE, ESPECIALLY BY READING AND EDITING OLD PERSIAN TEXTS,AND CAME TO the CONCLUSION THAT RYTHM HAS TO BE CONSIDERED AS A PRINCIPLE basis FOR PERSIAN POETRY.
NEYESTANI ,BY THESE PRINCIPLES AND MOSTLY AS A POET OF 1330'S-1340'S/1950'S-1960'S contemporary Iran BELONGS TO THE PERIOD OF DEFEAT AND by this THE  those POETS WHO had tendency TOWARDS ALCOHOL AND DRUGS, AND even LOST THEIR LITERARY PROFESSION AND LIFE.
IN ALL THESE POETS,INCLUDING IN NEYESTANI'S CASE,THERE IS A PERIOD WITH DIMINISHED POWER OF CREATIVITY AND RAPIDLY SLIPPING TOWARDS final stage of life,and DEATH,PHYSICALLY AND IN their LITERARY CARRIER..
MANUCHEHR NEYESTANI STARTED GOING TO SCHOOL IN KERMAN,IN THE SOUTHEAST OF IRAN.HE OBTAINED HIS HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA FROM DAROLFONUN ,A HISTORICAL HIGH SCHHOOL IN TEHRAN AND ENTERED TEHRAN SUPERIOR SCHHOOl, IN 1334/1955 AND HAD A B.S.DEGREE IN PERSIAN LITERATURE .
IN 1337/1958.MEANTIME ,NEYESTANI PUBLICHED HIS FIRST POEMS IN Nashr BIDARI OF KERMAN AND IN HAFTVAD AND ANDISHEH OF THE SAME CITY.HIS  NAME COULD BE INCLUDED IN THE list of FIRST GENERATION OF SATIRCAL POETS OF IRAN..HIS POLITICAL WORKS ARE PUBLISHED IN :TOFIGH ,CHALANGAR,AS WELL AS RAZM AND MARDOM,THE POLITICAL OR SATIRICAL PAPERS OF THAT  TIME IN TEHRAN.
*
MANUCHEHR NEYESTANI PUBISHED HIS SLECTED POEM,JAVANEH/BUD BY KHAJU IN KERMAN,1333/1954 FOLLOWED BY KHARAB/RUINED,1337.HE STARTED TEACHING IN SAHRUD HIGH SCHOOLS IN 1337/1958,AND IN TEHRAN 1342/1963 UNTIL 1357/1978,THE YEAR HE RETIRED from department of education.HIS THIRD SELECTED POEMS,DIRUZ KHAT FASSELEH/YESTERDAY-HIPHEN PUBLISHED in 1350 BY RAZ publications IN TEHRAN.HE ALSO PUBLISHED GOL UMAD,BAHAR UMAD/FLOWER CAME,CAME THE SPRING ,THROUGH CENTER OF CHILDREN LITERATURE IN TEHRAN,1347/1968.

 منوچهر نیستانی:

امروز، از نگاه تو سر گشته تر منم
هر گوشه را - به خواهش نامعلوم -
سر می زنم.
در دستم این عصای شکسته،
با دست من ز رنج سفر شکوه می کند.
در عمق غلظت مه " لندن"
یا در تراموای " وین"
- در شهر دیگری، به دگر نام -...
در سالن اپرا...
بر روی پل که می نگرد ساکت،
در اضطراب بی ثمر "پو"
در پای نخل منحنی سالدیده ای
در "الجزایر"...
در نقب های سرشار از داد،
و دود،
و نم،
- وز تاق تاق مهره ی بیلیارد-
هر گوشه را،
- به خواهش نامعلوم-
سر می زنم.

"... با هر کسی هوای سفر هست،
با هیچ کس نه رای نشستن.
سقف شکسته را پی آذین
طفلانه با گل آذین بستن؟

گل ها به سقف خنده زنان اند.
بی اعتنا به ما گذران اند .
گل ها ز مرگ و فتنه چه دانند...

این حرف ها به لب ، به دلم کوه کوه غم،
بی خواهشی صریح به هر سوی می روم،
" قیزقیز " میز کهنه ، در زیر دست من ،
چون دایه ام بناگاه انگیخت
از رخوتی به لذت یک خواب!
غوغای قهوه خانه ، چو یک طشت آب سرد
نا گاه بر سرم ریخت.
می پرسم از رفیق کناری:
- " باران که بند آمد؟"
- "آری"
و می روم...

شعر "منزل آخر "

TAJIKESTAN IN FARSI

silhouette,sayeh ha collection,by:moj book
faramarzsoleimani.com
TAJIKESTAN OFFICIALLY STARTED TO WRITE ,READ AND SPEAK FARSI ON THIS DATE OF 31 TIR 1368/JULY 22,1989 .TAJIKS WERE FORCED TO USE SIRILIC ALPHABET FOR MORE THAN SEVEN DECADES.ENFORCERS WHO ARE KILLERS TRIED TO KILL A LANGUAGE AND THE CULTURE BEHIND IT.ENFORCERS DIED.FARSI LANGUAGE SURVIVED.NOW WE ARE CELEBRATING TAJIKESTAN'S NATIONAL FARSI DAY,IF YOU WILL.
THERE ARE 7000 LANGUAGES AROUND THE WORLD AND HALF OF THEM MIGHT DIE SOON.
UNESCO BELIEVES THAT ABOUT 2500 LANGUAGES ARE IN DANGER OF EXTINCTIONM LIKE ENDANGERED SPECIES.ENGLISH,THE MOTHER TONGUE OF THE WORLD IN 20TH CENTURY AND 2000'S IS THE DOMINANT KILLER AND EXTINGUISHER.115 LANGUAGES LOST THEIR LIVES IN U.S.DURING THE PAST 500 YEARS, INCLUDING 53 SINE 1950
AND ONE IN 2008 : EYAK LANGUAGE IN ALASKA WITH THE DEATH OF THE LAST PERSIAN WHO WAS ABLE TO SPEAK ITTHEN COMES SPANISH AS THE LANGUAGE OF "CONQUISTADORES" ,ARABIC ,THE RELIGIOUS LANGUAGE,RUSSIAN,THE LANGUAGE OF FAILED EMPIRE,AND SOON CHINESE OR EVEN HINDI.SO BE READY!
ENGLISH KILLED MANY LANGUAGES AROUND THE WORLD,OR WEAKENED THEM TO STEP ASIDE,INCLUDING LANGUAGES OF NATIVE AMERICANS.THIS IS A PHENOMENON WITH A LONG HISTORY OF 100,000 YEARS OR MORE,AND STILL GOING.IN THE PAST 10 000 YEARS THAT HUNTERS TURNED TO AGRICULTURE AND GATHERED IN PRIMARY COMMUNITIESTHE DOMINANT LANGUAGES APPEARED TO A BIG FORCE TO SILENCE SMALLER GROUPS.THEN URBAN COMMUNITIES STARTED AND MIGRATION STARTED FOR ABETTER LIFE,OR THE WORSE AND LANGUAGES CORRUPTED,CONTAMINATED,CONVERTED
STAINED OR FULLY DISSAPEARED
THERE WERE NOT SO MANY LANGUAGES TO RESIST CONQUERORS AND GAVE IT UP OR AS USUAL TRAITORS DEFEATED THEM BY OPENING THE BACK DOORS.
O BACK DOORS !ALWAYS IN THE BUISENESS OF WRITING HISTORY ANEW...
SOMETIMES CONQUERORS GAVE UP AND RETURNED OR REGRESSED.ALEXANDER WHO NOW GETS A FACE LIFT BY HOLLYWOOD MOVIES OR SOAP OPERA HELINISTIC SCHOLARS,THE LIKE OF HERODOTUS,FELL IN LOVE WITH IRANIAN CULTURE(AND WOMEN,AND SHIRAZ WINE WAS SO GOOD TOO)AND BECAME IRANIAN ,WITH HIS SELEUCID EMPIRE ,DISSOLVED IN PERSIAN EMPIRE AND ITS CULTURE,THOUGH ALEXANDER STILL LOOKS LIKE A GREAT PHILOSOPHER,BETTER THAN HIS MASTER ARISTOLE, IN THESE SERIALS RATHER THAN A DRUNKARD SERIAL KILLER.
I DO NOT TRUST THE EDITOR OF "WORLDS AT WAR",A REDABLE BOOK WITH CAUTION, WHO WROTE HIS STORY BOOK THROUGH "FATHER OF FAKE HISTORY"WITHOUT DOING MUCH OF RESEARCH IN REAL HISTORY BOOKS.THIS BUISENESS OF "WE GREK AGAIST ALL OTHER THE WORLD AS BARBARIAN" IS A RAG RATIONAL,MEANING NONESENSICAL.
THE SAME IS THROUGH WITH THESE PUBLICATIONS ,FACE LIFTING THE OTHER GRAND KILLER NAMED TEMUDGIN OR JENGIZ, AND PROMOTING HIM TO SPIRITUAL LEADR AND QUASI PROPHET. HE CONQUERED THE OLD WORLD ALL THE WAY FROM MOMGOLIA OF CHINA TO PRESENT DAY ENGLAND BUT THANKS TO DESTINY THERE WAS A FIGHT BACK HOME IN HIS TRIBE AND HE LEFT HIS VERSION OF "NEW WORLD"
AND RUSHED BACK.OTHERWISE WE ASIAN AND EUROPEAN ALL THE WAY TO THE GREAT LITTLE UNITED ISLANDS ,WHO FOUGHT MANY WARS AFTER RAPE OF EUROPA,WOULD SPEAK MONGOLI,PROBABLY THE MOTHER TONGUE OF ALL TURKIC ,AND OUR OWNLANGUAGE WOULD BE DEAD FOR 9 CENTURIES.
BUT THE LANGUAGE NEVER IS DEAD EVEN IF IT IS DEAD.IT IS LIKE HUMANITY AND HUMAN BEINGS.IT IS LIKE POETS AND WRITERS.THEY HAVE SEVEN SOULS AND LIVE IN SEVEN STORIES OF HEAVENS.
IF 20TH CENTURY IS THE TIME OF LOST AND FORGOTTEN LANGUAGES,IT IS THE TIME OF RESURRECTION,AS WELL.THIS ESPECIALLY TRUE IN AFRICA, EX SOVIET UNION DOMAIN AND MIDDLE EAST ,IN FARSI ,TURKISH AND KURDISH SPEAKING REGIONS,AND TAJIKESTAN IS ONE GOOD EXAMPLE.
THAT,S WHY FARSI IN TAJIKESTAN DID NOT DIE.
HAPPY FARSI DAY,TAJIKESTAN!

PABLO NERUDA,THE POET OF ORDINARY PEOPLE



O.

THERE IS NO NEW NEWS IN ISLA NEGRA
THE POET'S HOUSE IS RANSACKED
AND WASHED WITH HATRED
BY TUGS AND MERCENARIES.
THERE IS NO NEW NEWS IN POET'S HOUSE

OR VALPARAISO.
THERE IS NO NEW NEWS IN NIMA'S HOUSE OF YUSH,NUR,ALBORZ,MAZANDARAN,IRAN.
THERE IS NO NEW NEWS

IN THIS CRUEL WORLD.
P.S:
DID I MISS SOMEONE?
OF COURSE I DID.
SORRY!
(to continue..)
1
ONCE UPON A TIME THERE WERE
KINGS AND QUEENS
SQUATTING LONELY AT THE END OF LONG HALLWAYS
ON BLOODY BONES AND STONES
THEN CAME
BAREFEET BEGGARS AND BAKERS
WOMEN WITH THEIR NEWBORN SOUL
AND SHADOWS OF LOST CHILDREN
WHEAT AND RICE FARMERS
WORKERS,MUD LAYERS,BRICK MASONS
AND THERE WERE BLUE COLLAR POETS
THE BARDS AND TROUBADOURS
WHO BROKE THEIR SILENCE
AND SAILED TO STREETS
TO SING ALONG THEIR SONGS
FOR ORDINARY PEOPLE
FOR THE PEOPLE OF MIRAGE
AND REALITY
IN THE KINGDOM OF PEN
AND POSSIBILITIES
AND THE SKY WAS BLUE
WHEREVER THEY WENT.
2
UNDER THE BLUE SKY
I WANTED TO INVITE YOU
TO RECITE WORDS AND METAPHORS
I WANTED TO BRING YOU OVER
TO CELEBRATE 100TH ANNIVERSARY
OF YOUR BIRTH
(NOW AT 105)
BUT THE WORLD LOOKS SO GLOOMY
I MEAN IT IS BLOODY DARK
FOR HATRED AND WARS
AND I AM AFRAID
YOUR HEART
YOUR FRAGILE LOVELY HEART
IS GOING TO HURT
SO REST IN PEACE
GOOD NIGHT PABLITO
SLEEP WELL
IN YOUR ISLA NEGRA DE CHILE
WITH YOUR BELOVED MATILDE
WITH FIRE AND ASHES
SND LOVE
HASTA SIEMPRE!

ALL OVER THE WORLD
AT A GOOD TIME IN FALLING OF BODY
BUTTERFLY WAS HIDING BEHIND A WALL
AND DUST
FLUTTERING THROUGH UNSEEN SKIN
AND SHADOWS OF SEPTEMBER
WERE SINGING A SONG OF SORROWS
AND LOVED THE SILENCE
WHO TOOK THE DUST WALL WITH THEM
AT A GOOD TIME OF FALLING OF BODY
A HAND CAME THROUGH THE WALL
AT A TIME OF ORCHARD WITHERING
AND SUN
AND EARTH
A RECURRING TIME OF MAN AND BUTTERFLY
A TIME OF TIME
OF CERTAIN FALL
A HAND TO BECOME A DUST PALM
AT A GOOD TIME OF FALLING OF BODY
O LOVE
O FLUTTERING BUTTERFLY
OF FOREVER
IN FALLING TIME
5
AT TIME
LOVE IS SINKING IN PACIFIC
-NOW A CRYING BURMA/MYANMAR
IN MEXICO,BARCELONA,PARRAL,TEMUCO,SANTIAGO
LOVE IS GROWING IN SOLDIERS EYES OF
ESPANIA EN EL CORAZON
A MERMAID THEN IS BORN
IN ISLA NEGRA
YOU WROTE THE NAMES OF ALL THE WORLDS
LOVERS ON TIMBERS AND STONES
YOU GREW GRASS
AND LAID BRICKS ON BRICKS
WITH THEIR POETRY AND BOOKS
IN THE SHADOWS OF ANDES
IN MACCHU PICCHU OR PATAGONIA
BUTTERFLY TOOK A LONG ETHEREAL ROAD
TO COME TO SEE ALL OF YOU
THEY WERE NOT THERE
YOU WERE NOT THERE
YOU WERE GROWN IN ASHES
WITH YOUR MATILDE URRUTIA
WHOSE LOVE WAS SINKING
IN PACIFIC
AND WAS BORN A MERMAID AGAIN
IN ISLA NEGRA
6
IN ISLA NEGRA
IT WAS NOT LATE TO WARM UP AGAIN
IT WAS JUST LATE TO EXPRESS
WARM INVITATIONS
MATILDE IS LOVE
MATILDE IS IN LOVE OF LONELINESS
A LONELINESS TOGETHER
AND FARAWAY DRINKS EL SOL
IN THE GARDEN OF ROSES
AND NIGHTINGALES
MATILDE IS NAME
UNTIL IT IS A NEW NAME
WITH E/OR A
MATILDE IS LOVE
MATILDE IS IN LOVE OF LONELINESS
SHE IS THE ECLECTION OF RAINBOW
WHEN IT RAINS IN NAKED BODY AND SOUL
UNDER FIRING CLOACK OF SUN
SO LET'S HIDE UNDER DARKNESS
LET'S LIGHT UP IN CHASMS OR VALLEYS
WHILE THE PEAKS ARE MIRRORED
IN THE OCEAN OF WAVES
I SAID WAVES,MATILDE
I MEAN WHITE WARM RHYTHMS AND RHYMES
LAYING WITHOUT RHYMES AND RHYTHMS
"MATILDE URRUTIA I'M LEAVING YOU HERE
ALL I HAD AND I DIDN'T HAVE
ALL I AM AND I AM NOT"
OR WITH ALL THE BLUE LANDSCAPE
7
UNDER THE BLUE LANDSCAPE
MATILDE
WAS A GREAT LOVE
A GREAT LOVER
IN THE EYES OF ALLEYS OF CAPRI
WITH EL CAPITAN
IN STREETS OF SANTIAGO
ON THE HILLS OF VALPARADISO
OR THE BEACH OF ISLA NEGRA
IN SANDS AND WAVES
MATILDE URRUTIA WAS A GREAT LOVER
A GREAT LOVE

ONCE IN TEATRO COUPOLOCA SHE SAID:
"IT WAS JOY THAT PABLO LOVED
AND FOR THAT REASON
I AM NOT GOING TO ASK HERE
THAT WE REMEMBER HIM
WITH A MINUTE OF SILENCE
NO
I'M GOING TO ASK FOR PABLO
A MINUTE OF JOY
A LOT OF NOISE
MUCH APPLAUSE..."

AND NOW THAT SHE SAID AGAIN:
"I'M HAPPY AT LAST
I'M GOING WITH MY PABLO..."

WE CELEBRATE FOR BOTH LOVERS
IN JOY
IN NOISE
IN APPLAUSE
IN WORDS AND METAPHORS
IN POETRY
IN LOVE
THOUGH PABLITO STILL HAS HIS OWN QUESTION:
"SI HE MUERTO Y NO ME HE DADO CUENTA
A QUIEN LE PREGUNTO LA HORA?/
IF I HAVE DIED AND DON'T KNOW IT
OF WHOM DO I ASK THE TIME?"

mohammad hoghughi,   محمد حقوقی 
poet and critic
A*SH*N*A
محمد حقوقی : لا ک پشت ها 
به انتخاب شاعر 
لاک پشت 
شن ها را 
به گودال 
فرو می ریخت 
و زمان همچنان بر ایستگاه می گذشت 
(سال ٦٢-در انزلی -بیش از این دو سطر را نتونستم نوشت )
مادرم 
در گور 
قرار 
می گرفت 
و زمان هم چنان بی ایستگاه می گذشت 
(سال ٦٣-در اصفهان-بیش از این دو سطر را نتونستم نوشت )
آمفی تاتر دیگر 
از زیر خاک 
بیرون 
آمده بود 
و زمان هم چنان بی ایستگاه می گذشت 
(سال ٦٤ -در سوییس - بیش از این دو سطر را نتونستم نوشت )
گذاران سال دو هزار از قتل سزار 
- "بروتوس ! تو،هم!"-
و آنگاه که همراهم گفت :
ءچه گفتی"
گفتم:
هیچ-
و رو به ساحل راه افتادم 
آن جا که به دنبال هزاران لک پشت نوزاد 
که به سوی دریا می دویدند 
کلمات بر کاغذ 
سرازیر 
می شدند 
" دیدن آمفی تاتر در سوییس که تازه کشف شده بود و از زیر خاک در آمده بود در سال ٦٤ مرا به یاد سال ٦٣ می انداخت وقتی که مادرم را در گور می گذاشتند و گور مادر مرا به یاد خاطره یی در انزلی می آورد وقتی که لاک پشتی دشت زمین را می کند لاک پوشت ، ماده ای که در ماسه ها تخم می گذشت - همان که پس از تماشای آمفی تاتر در سوییس در خیال من یکی پس از دیگری از تخم در می آیند و به سوی دریا می دوند .لاک پشت ها با کلمات تازه شعر من ،همان شهری که در سال ٦٢ فقط دو سطر آن را بیشتر نتونستم بنویسم و در سال ٦٣ هم دو ستر و در سال ٦٤ هم -لاک پشت و خاک کنایه از تولد -مادر و خاک کنایه از مرگ و آمفی تاتر در خاک مانده و از خاک بر آمده کنایه از مرگ و تولد هر دو با هم ، و روابطی که در این میان به وجود می آید ...

POETS AND POETRY NEVER DIE.
MOHAMMAD HOGHUGHI IS STILL HERE.
HE HAS NOT GONE YET FOREVER.
HE WILL BE BACK.HE STAYS WITH US.
IN POETRY AND PROSE,MOHAMMAD HOGHUGHI IS HERE.
I ASSURE YOU .I KNOW IT. I KNOW HIM.
ONCE HE SAID:
ALL REMAIN A CHILD
WHOSE LOOK
ARE LEFT BEHIND
IF THOSE TRAVELLERS FAR AND AWAY
WITH TREMBLING FINGERS TOWARDS BIRTH
IN THE LAST MEMORY OF CONFUSION OF BIRTH
HOW SAD...
MOHAMMAD HOGHUGHI, POET AND CRITIC  محمد حقوقی 
b 13 Ordibehesht 1316,Isfahan,Iran/3 May 1937
d 8 Tir 1388 / 29 June 2009
AS A YOUNG POET,HE JOINED OTHER WRITERS OF ESFEHAN SUCH AS AHMAD AND HUSHANG GOLSHIRI,AHMAD MIRALAI,ABOLHASAN NAJAFI,MAJID NAFICY , JALIL DUSTKHAH,Dr Bahram Sadeghi, AND OTHERS IN JONG ESFEHAN/ESFEHAN ANTHOLOGY AND IN LATE 1350'S MOVED TO TEHRAN TO ATTEND TEHRAN SUPERIOR SCHOOL.
INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH,IN THOSE YEARS HE WAS VERY MUCH INTO SPORT AND SOCCER GAMES AND LIKE HIS BROTHER HOSSEIN IN MEDICAL SCHOOL , MADE IT TO SCHOOL TEAM FOR COLLEGE COMPETITION.
HOGHUGHI WHO WAS MANUCHEHR ATASHI'S ROOMMATE AND STUDYING AT THE SAME SCHOOL WITH POETS SUCH AS ASGHAR VAGHEDI AND ESMAIL KHOI AMONG OTHERS,STARTED WRITING AND PUBLISHING GHAZALS AND GRADUALLY TURNED TO MODERN POETRY AND FOLLOWING IT IN MODERATION.
HIS DESCRIPTIVE NOTES ON POEMS EVOLVED INTO BOOKLENGHT CRITICAL ESSAYS ON SOME PROMINENT PERSIAN POETS SUCH AS NIMA,FORUGH,SHAMLU,SEPEHRI ,AKHAVAN,AND THEIR POETRY.
MOHAMMAD HOGHUGHI ,WHEN RETURNED FROM HIS LONG TRIP TO SWITZERLAND FOR HEART SURGERY IN 1364/1985, WAS NOT THE SAME ENERGETIC GUY I USED TO KNOW IN SOCCER FIELDS ,OR WITH HANGING SHOES ON HIS SHOULDERS AFTER THE GAMES.HE GREW GRAY BEARD AND LOOKED LIKE FREUD,AS BARAHANI ALWAYS MOCKED HIM WITH LAUGHTERS,AND ATTENDED MOSTLY SMALL OR LARGER GATHERINGS OF POETRY RECITALS ONLY IN SILENCE AND THOUGHTS.BUT HE WAS STILL STRIVING HARD TO FOLLOW CONTEMPORARY PERSIAN POETRY VERY CLOSELY AND UPDATE HIS ' SHER NOW AZ AGHAZ TA EMRUZ 'TO PREPARE IT FOR SECOND EDITION.
HOGHUGHI STARTED PUBLISHING HIS BOOKS OF POETRY IN ESFEHAN AND CONTINUED THROUGH ALL THESE YEARS , SUPPLEMENTING WITH LITERARY CRICISM AND FARSI BOOKS FOR SCHOOLS AND STUDENTS...

IN ESFEHAN:
ANGLES AND ORBITS,1969
WINTERY SEASONS,1969
IN TEHRAN:
EASTERNERS,1972
INEVITABLE ESCAPES,1978
WITH NIGHT,WITH WOUND,WITH WOLF,1978
A THOUSAND WING COCK,1989
NIGHT,PERMANENT,NIGHT,1991
MODERN POETRY,FROM BEGINNING TO TODAY,MODERN PERSIAN POETRY OF 46 MAJOR PERSIAN POETS FROM 1300/1921 TO 1370/1991,2ND ED;RAVAYAT,TEHRAN 1371/1992
OF THE MORNING OF SILVER AND ASH
FROM THE HEART TO DELTA
THE LONG HALLWAYS OF EVENING
THE BASKETS IN 15 BOOKS,INCLUDING LAMENT OF ROBAB,FOR POET'S MOTHER,AND MORE(UNPUBLISHED)
POEMS OF BERN
SURFACES OF POETRY IN LINES OF PROSE(UNPUBLISHED)...
HOGHUGHI ,AS A STRUCTURALIST CRITIC OF POETRY WHO WROTE ESSAYS AND BOOKLENGHT CRITICISMS ON WORKS OF CONTEMPORARY POETS,BELIEVED THAT :
A REAL POET ,UNTIL THE MOMENT OF FINISHING THE LAST LINE OF POEM,WILL NOT KNOW HOW AND WHAT IS WRITTEN THERE.
HOGHUGHI ONLY RECOGNIZED ALL THIS CREATIVE ACTIVITIES THROUGH A "SPECIAL CIRCLE OF STRUCTURE FOR THAT SPECIAL POEM"(from INTERVIEW WITH ME'YAR)
SOME OF HOGHUGHI'S WORKS IN THE FIELD OF POETRY CRITICISM ARE AS FOLLOWS:
POETRY AND POETS
FACES OF PERSIAN POETS,1351/1972
POETRY OF OUR TIME ON:
AHMAD SHAMLU
FORUGH FARROKHZAD
SOHRAB SEPEHRI
NIMA YUSHIJ
MEHDI AKHAVAN SALESS...
THE LIMIT IS THIS,GHATREH,TEHRAN 1381/2002,A COLLECTION OF ESSAYS AND INTERVIEWS.
ALSO:
COASTAL POEMS,A BOOK OF THE LAST SELECTED POEMS BY MOHAMMAD HOGHUGHI IS STILL UNDER SURVEILANCE BY OFFICIALS UP TO PRESENT TIME ,
TO OBTAIN PERMIT FOR PUBLICATION.

THIS IS A LINE OUT OF HIS OWN POEMS in مرثیه رباب THAT MOHAMMAD HOGHUGHI,THE POET OF WINTERY SEASONS, LIKED VERY MUCH,OUT OF HIS POEMS ,AND ALWAYS QUOTED OR RECITED IT:
THE EVER NIGHT OF YOUR BONY REEDS
ON THE EVER LIPS OF DEATH
شب همیشه ی نی های استخوانی تو بر لب همیشه ی مرگ
/SHAB E HAMISHEH YE NEY HAYE OSTEKHANI YE TO BAR LAB E HAMISHEH YE MARG/

AND NOW,THESE ARE THE LINES I RECITED FOR THE POET OF DARABAD AND DEDICATED TO HIM IN MY BOOK:"GREEN AND WHITE AND RED / SABZ O SEPID O SORKH "(MOJ BOOK 1378/1999)AND NOW I AM GOING TO RECITE THEM TIME AND AGAIN,AS 'IN INVASION TOO THE GARDEAN STARTS ANEW..."

HE IS TIRED OF LOVING
BEHIND THE WALLS OF
FEVER AND COUGH
ON THE OTHER SIDE
SOMEONE IS PLAYING
FOR HIS HEART
SOMEONE IS GIVING HIS SOUL
AS RANSOME

IN THE LANDSCAPE OF DUST
IS STARING
THE VALLEY OF DARABAD

THE SUNS OF SISTER'S MIRROR
-IN MEMORIAM:FORUGH

THE NIGHT SLEEPS IN SILENCE
THE NIGHT IN ALL ANGLES
WHERE IS THE DISCOVERER
O LADY SPEAK UP
O LADY LOOK
ON A STAGE CONNECTING MIRRORS
TO WATERS OF COPULATIVE

O LADY LOOK
0 LADY SPEAK UP
THE RARITY RUNNING BROOKS
THE SUNS OF SISTER'S MIRROR
WHEN SUDDENLY AWAKEN
OF MORNING SLEEP
THERE ARE NEVER LINES
OF DISTANCE

O LADY LOOK
O LADY SPEAK UP!
(BY:M.HOGHUGHI,TR.BY:F.SOLEIMANI)

*AMONG 1000 POETS OF 70 YEARS ,46 MAJOR PERSIAN POETS ARE SELECTED
IN HOGHUGHI'S BOOK,
-WHO ARE 4.6 PER CENT OF THEM-
AND THESE POETS ARE REPRESNTED BY THEIR BIOGRAPHIES AND OUEVRES
EVOLVING THROUGH SEVEN DECADES OF
MODERN PERSIAN POETRY,BETWEEN 1300 TO 1370.
BY NOW 28 OF THE SELECTED POETS ARE GONE and passed away ,
WHICH MAKES IT TO 60 PER CENT OF THEM,
SO THERE ARE 18 POETS IN HOGHUGHI'S LIST WHO ARE STILL LIVING,
AND THE WORLD SEEMS TO BE A BIG VOID WITHOUT THEM ALL.
BUT
POETS AND POETRY NEVER DIE ...
AND THE ROAD WILL CONTINUE WITH YOUNGER PACES AND VOICE.
I am planning to modify and expand Hoghughi's list as IRANIAN POETS OF THE CENTURY/         شاعران قرن ایران  ١٣٠٠ - ١٤٠٠
