Poems by FETHI SASSI

 

 

 

  • I do not remember well … It was something
  • resembling her face

 

She was drinking the rainbow  …

Hiding behind the bottle of absence

I do not remember well  …  It was something resembling her face

I was with her drinking my retreat

Upon the arm of an apologizing flute …

But the night revealed to her its fragrance

And invited her to sleep on the note of love …

Her face blazed with poetry ; she melted as a poem

She is still , as usual , looking from the window of time

Like a butterfly bearing in the fingertips a sob that engraves

Memory  …

Thus names dangled for her like desperate bunches on the ramparts of a poem ….

That’s why…

I do not leave her dream early until choose to the wind the stones of oblivion

I sleep with her and on the hand of the evening a kiss hangs like

dreams of a kitten …

A lip that sheds clouds on the groves of amazement

Me  … I will steal a star and hide in the mist of words

So, alone ,the night ascends the ladder of time , chatting with a butterfly of amazement.

At the window of my heart I weave climates to the forthcoming seasons

So, spread to me a wish in the emptiness …

Kiss me! your spittle is enough for me to drown  ….

You , a face absent from my poems

Open to me the sun gate to drink my storm ,

for I see behind the absence a raining cloud upon her obstinate cup

of coffee

Like the sore sunset smile

Like the evening tale

So be lenient waves !!

My fingertips care about her absence.

Her kiss is a hole poem …..

Let’s enter together the dungeons of her body

There we shall knead the clay of the story ; and venture in the folds of its charm

We never care about the alchemy of kisses …

But I do not remember well…It was something resembling her face…

 

 

 

 

 

 

لا أتَذَكَـّرُ جَيّدًا  …  كَانَ شَيئًا يشبِهُ وجْهَهَا

 

كانَتْ تَشرُبُ قوْسَ قزَحٍ   …

وخَلفَ زُجَاجَةِ الغِيَابِ تَختفِي

لا أتَذكّـرُ جَيِّدًا   …   كانَ شَيْئًا يُشبِهُ وَجْهَهَا

كنْتُ معها أشرُب عزلتي فوق ذراع نايٍّ يَعتَذِرُ   …

لكِنَّ اللّيْلَ قدْ أفشَى لهَا العَبيرَ

ودَعَاهَا لكَيْ تنَامَ عَلى نُوتَةِ عِشْقٍ     …

فاشْتَعَلَ وجْهُهَا شِعْرًا وسَالتْ كقصِيدَةٍ

مَازَالتْ كعَادَتِهَا تطُلّ مِنْ نَافِذَةِ الوَقتِ كفَرَاشَةٍ بَينَ أنَامِلهَا شَهْقَةٌ

تَحفُرُ الذّاكِرَةَ   …

هَكذَا تَتدَلّى لهَا الأسْمَاءُ عَنَاقِيدَ يَائِسَةً فَوقَ أسْوَارِ القصِيدَةِ

لذَلِكَ أنَا   ….

لا أغَادِرُ حُلمَهَا بَاكِرًا حَتّى أصْطَفِي للرِّيحِ حِجَارَةَ النِّسيَانِ

 

أنَامُ مَعَهَا وعَلى يَدِ اللّيْلِ قبْلَةً مُعَلّقةً كَأحْلامِ قِطّةٍ   …

وشَفَةٌ تُمْطِرُ غُيُومًا سَقَطتْ فِي بَسَاتِينِ الذّهُولِ

أنَا   ….   سَوفَ أسْرِقُ نَجْمَةً وأخْتَفِي بَيْنَ غُبَارِ الكَلمَاتِ   …

كيْ يَصْعَدَ اللّيلُ وَحْدَهُ عَلى سُلّمِ الوَقتِ يُسَامِرُ فَرَاشَة أكثَرَ

دَهشَةٍ

وأنَا عَلى نَافِذَةَ القلبِ أسَربِلُ مَنَاخَاتٍ للفُصُولِ القَادِمَةِ

فاٌفرِشِي لِي فِي الفَرَاغِ أغْنِيَةً    …

وقبِّلِيني لُعَابُكِ يَكفِينِي كيْ أغْرَقْ   …

أيُّهَا الوَجْهُ الغَائِبُ عَنْ قصَائِدِي

اِفتَح لِي بَابَ الشّمْسِ لأشْرَبَ عَاصِفَتِي

لأنِّي خَلفَ الغِيَابِ أرَى غَمَامَةً تمْطِرُ

فَوقَ فِنْجَانِ قَهْوَتِهَا العَصِيِّ عَنِ البُكَاءِ

كاٌبتِسَامَةِ الغُرُوبِ المُوجِعَةِ   …..

كحِكايَةِ المَسِاءِ   …..

فَتَرَفَّقْ أيُّهَا المَوجُ أنَامِلِي تَكتَرِثُ لغِيَابِهَا

قبْلتُهَا قَصِيدَةٌ برمَّتِهَا   ….

فهَيّا مَعِي نَدْخُلُ مَعًا سَرَادِيبَ جَسَدِهَا هُنَاكَ نَعْرِكُ طِينَ الحِكايَةِ

ونُغَامِرُ دُونَ هَوَادَةٍ بَينَ طَيَّاتِ فِتنَتِهَا ولا نَعْبَأ بِكِيميَاءِ القُبَلِ

ولكنّنِي لا أتَذَكّرُ جَيِّدًا    …    كانَ حُلمًا يُشبِهُ وَجهَهَا
