I’VE HELD ON TIGHT TO THE WINGS OF THE COSMOS…

 Autobiographic Poetic Diary

Dedicated to my dear sister Olcay Ünver and my immediate Family in Istanbul…

One half of me is from Turkey
The other half America

Following “A City in Space” titled dream, 1.5 – 2 years later, this time I am in Istanbul… 

To my son John Unver’s  21st Birthday…

It was exactly fifteen years before this event that
the Passport of World Citizenship had grabbed my attention…
I had first seen it among his prizes in the library of Sir Arthur C. Clarke
at the Barnes Place in Colombo,
during my first visit on December 20, 2002…

A CITY IN SPACE

Poetic Diary – I. While I was in New York about one-and-a-half to two-years ago…

There is a perception that everything exists in the universe as if it has been reflected through the mind of mankind…

by Bircan ÜNVER | For the original format as pdf file, please click on here>

I was in a forest densely filled with very tall and wide pine trees
There was a hillside at the entrance of the forest…
Just like the one at the entrance of the Forest Park by the Park Lane
which is 10 minutes from where I live
However, all the pine trees on the hillside were uprooted and carried away
The earth in the denuded open area was still very fresh and wet
As if it was fallowed that day with the purpose of farming!

TO MANY MORE MILLENNIA DEAR SIR ARTHUR… December 16

Poetic Diary | by Bircan ÜNVER  (for the original format, click here for the pdf file).

Dedicated to the 100th Anniversary of Sir Arthur C. Clarke’s Birthday…

December 16, 1917 – December 16, 2017 

I.
Many people used to mention the impossibility of interviewing you…
Once I was influenced by your vision, I wanted to interview you…
At that time, I had read in the newspapers that you were in New York…
I had immediately found out where you were staying and called
This hotel happened to be the one where you had written the book “2001: Space Odyssey”
Much later, I also found out that in front of the hotel wall,
there is a placket in your name that refers you’ve written the “2001: Space Odyssey” there…

NİCE BİNYILLARA SEVGİLİ SIR ARTHUR… | 100. Yaşında

Şiirsel Günce:
Sir Arthur C. Clarke’in 100. Doğum Yıldönümüne ithafen… 16 Aralık 1917 – 16 Aralık 2017
Kaynak: IŞIK YOLLARINDA ~ İçindeki ışığı arayan tüm yeryüzü dostlarına… kitabı | BIRCAN ÜNVER ŞİİRLERİ |  Sayfa 133 – 138
I.
Çoğu kimse, sana ulaşmanın – görüşmenin imkansızlığına dem vururdu…
Girmiştim bir kez vizyonunun etki alanına ve bir röportaj yapmak istiyordum…
Bir gazetede okumuştum New York’ta olduğunu o sıralar…
Hemen otelini öğrenip aramıştım ki, bu otel “2001: Uzay Macerası”nı da yazmış olduğun
Adına bir Plaket’in de duvarında asılı olduğunu da çok sonradan öğrenmiş olduğum bir otel…
Ve ne büyük bir rastlantı ki, New York’a 1990 yılında ilk ayak bastığım ve benim de kalmış olduğum oteldi, Hotel Chelsa…
Haberi okur okumaz hemen aramıştım oteli…
Maalesef o sabah ayrılmıştın Sri Lanka’ya dönmek üzere
Çok üzülmüştüm ama yapacak bir şey de yoktu o an…
