WE MUST REMAIN VIGILANT ALL OUR LIFE. AND WE HAVE TO BE VIGOROUS.

“We face every single day and in all over the world, gender base violence, gender related killings, sexual harassment, intimate partner violence… the list is long. Knowing that women’s rights are never to be taken granted and always questioned and postponed with several excuses like political, economic, religious crises. We must remain vigilent all our life. And we have to be vigorous.”

ATTİLA İLHAN’I HATIRLAMAK

Yazan: Harun YÖNDEM
Attila İlhan’ı önce şiirlerinden tanıdım. Üniversitede asistan (araştırma görevlisi) olan bir ağabeyin elinde şairin bir kitabını görmüştüm.
Sonra kitapçılarda  birçok eseriyle karşılaştım. “Hangi” başlığıyla yazılan kitaplardı bunlar: Hangi Batı, Hangi Sol, Hangi Atatürk, Hangi Sağ  aklımda kalanlar. Bunların bazılarını okudum da.

CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION FOR A TEACHER: HAYDAR GÖFER


I had a ball visiting my home country Turkey last month- mostly the schools where I had spent perhaps the happiest times of my life.  What prompted the trip was the end of the centennial and the beginning of the 101st birthday celebration of one of my favorite teachers at Tarsus American College (TAC), Haydar Göfer. I had missed the beginning of the 100th year in February of last year.

A GIANT PASSES ON – ŞÜKRÜ SERVER AYA

Obituary
“Ben giderim adım kalır
Dostlar beni hatırlasın
Düğün olur bayram gelir
Dostlar beni hatırlasın
Can kafeste durmaz uçar
Dünya bir han konan göçer
Ay dolanır yıllar geçer
Dostlar beni hatırlasın
Can bedenden ayrılacak
Tütmez baca yanmaz ocak
Selam olsun kucak kucak”

– A poem by Aşık Veysel (1894 – 1973)

Eski şiirler okurum..eski aşklara yazılmıs
Şarkısı olmayan ve öksüz

Ahh en cok o şiir..
Tenhalarda sevişilmiş bir aşktan ve
Koynunda sabahlanmış bir sevgilinin kaleminden çokça..
