Optimistic Man
as a child he never plucked the wings off flies
he didn't tie tin cans to cats' tails
or lock beetles in matchboxes
or stomp anthills
A Sad State Of Freedom
You waste the attention of your eyes,
the glittering labour of your hands,
and knead the dough enough for dozens of loaves
of which you'll taste not a morsel;
Hymn To Life
The hair falling on your forehead
suddenly lifted.
Suddenly something stirred on the ground.
The trees are whispering
Letters From A Man In Solitary
I carved your name on my watchband
with my fingernail.
Where I am, you know,
Things I Didn'T Know I Loved
it's 1962 March 28th
I'm sitting by the window on the Prague-Berlin train
night is falling
I never knew I liked

3/3 Why is it important to claim he’s Turkish or Greek? Why is it important to claim anything at all of being one or the other? Is it the sad fact that we don’t have anything to say ourselves about our life that make us cling onto someone else’s work in hope that we will get some kind of credit or recognition from sharing a route? How miserable!

2/3 In my humble view, one can’t claim credit for anyone’s artistic work, for that work is the result of the artist having lived life - wherever that life has taken place. Sure, for legal and most accurately divisive reasons such clarification and distinction becomes necessary but that’s about it. Whether that person is A or B, in this instance Greek or Turkish, I find it completely irrelevant.

Reply to a troll post. 1/3 Of all places, this is the last one I expected to see a debate on an artist’s life - arguing ownership? Naively, I have this idea that, those whom read poetry or read at all for that matter, will be the last to have such concerns and debates. A waste and a shame.

slyvia is talking about blood and by this way is proving how racist she is. Nazim Hikmet wrote in Turkish.And this, without any doubt makes him a Turkish poet..

Greeks are in the habit of reclaiming anything Turkish' Baklava, Dolma, Turkish Coffee, Sis Kebap and the other Kebaps, not to mention the folkloric tunes. But, Nazim is none of these yet the Greeks have claimed he is a Greek too. For the record.. He is a Turkish poet with Polish ancestry

Listen how Nazim poetry is bathing in the fountain of freedom! Like a child. No need to impress by style or beauty lines, coming out from genuinity and the love for life. These poems of late autumn, granting juicy fruits, cooling air and the low sun casting surprisingly long shadows...
