Biography of Eli Spivakovsky

Eli Spivakovsky poet

Poetry is a way for me to share my emotional memory. It is my seal, my stamp, my proof that I have been paying some attention in life. Some of my favourite poetic subjects include: Sound, Digital and Old Technology, Chrysanthemums and Cherry Blossoms, Dudaim, Japanese Royalty, Geishas and Maikos, Astronauts, Child Prodigies, Gypsies, Jews, Snow, Kabbalah, Deceptive Athletes, Chemistry, Memory and of course, Love.

I am inspired by mythology, symbology, mysticism such as Kabbalah, philosophy, angelology, literature, and film and any kind of creative thinking. As well as by my Grandfather, the pianist Jascha Spivakovsky and my Great Uncle, the violinist Tossy Spivakovsky. I also write short-stories, songs, do many kinds of visual art, and am the singer-songwriter and guitarist in the band Circa Aeon.

Recently, I was the first to note an over-looked cinematic allusion in Akira Kurosawa's masterpiece, 'Ran'.

I am also a perfume fanatic and my poem 'What if a Hummingbird could Emerge from a Cocoon' has been favourited by Fleurage Perfumes to inspire a new scent.

I was the convener for the Borders Books Poetry Readings sessions and have appeared in numerous festival line-ups including 'Next Wave', 'Kosher Culture' and 'Overload'. I have shared the stage as a feature poet with Pi-O, Ian McBride and the late Jacob Rosenberg.

I have previously been published in numerous blogs and have just self-published a collection of my work called 'Panacea'. I have also been published in 'Mad Hat' Journal, 'Edgar Allen Poet' Journal, 'Verandah' Journal, 'Hevria', 'Pause State', 'Dead Snakes', 'The Australian Jewish News - literary edition' and 'Sonic Boom' Journal.

You're welcome to share my poems as long as you give me author credit. I hope you will enjoy them and use them to make emotional memories for yourself as well.

Storm For A Storm

The snow freezes in the air
The air itself doesn't freeze - that's called 'diamond dust'
The snow actually stopped altogether
mid-fall
dripping
suspended like a stalactite in the sky

Immediately afterwards the horses storm our cathedral:
a storm for a storm
