Introduction – Editorial Staff of “ATUNIS”

 

***

Atunis International “Anthology – 2021” comes with a series of selected authors at a difficult time for all humanity because of the pandemic time that we are living in, which has damaged not only human trust but has also created many problems in everyday social life.
Art itself and especially poetry is the representation of hope and kaleidoscope meaning of life, today more than ever.
Writers (authors) around the world through their spiritual power, dive into the chaos and troubles of human circumstances, bringing light and hope to adjust tomorrow’s life visions, which definitely pave another path for the younger generations; always in dispute with the invented realities and always in disagreement with the absurdity of the world toward us.

POETS AS PASSING GEESE IN SKIES

The mobility of poets has overwhelmingly increased in recent years. The internet made crisscross contacts possible all over the world and poets make frequent and grateful use of it. Nowadays it has therefore become easier to publish poems on international websites, which give them a greater reach and action radius.
Like a traffic control tower, publishers and editors search the many lines that are both on the ground and in the air. The requirements poetry should meet, therefore, are strongly fluctuating and more carefully than ever should be looked at chaff and corn; what has quality, content, depth, appearances and what does not. As so many, much more than in the past, are plunging into the turbulent waves of poetry, it is therefore necessary to look at parameters that carefully, meticulously measure if there is enough to approve a poem for publication. It is inevitable that poems sometimes get stuck in sort of diary-like fragments of moods, in which the world of feelings and emotions is almost always paramount, whereas other important characteristics such as language skills, insight into various style figures, exploiting pleonasm, imagery, metamorphoses, surprising contrasts, doublespeak have become subordinate to what should be expressed in a poetic style.
We do well to continue to make a distinction, so as not to neglect the power of visual and physical language, to get snowed under. Even though certain images immediately catch the eye and can evoke instant emotion, there will also be serious doubts, like is in painting e.g. about the image of that innocent, young boy’s portrait with a tear on his cheek. True poetry never serves man for the sake of convenience.
In this anthology you will find poems of high quality, great variation, which deserve to be read and re-read bearing witness to a certain degree of complexity that often cannot be understood immediately. After all, upon re-reading, you will always find different poetry lines, individual words, or images, as an unexpected introduction between the well-known and completely unknown, the unexpected, the specialness, deviating. The way in which words are carefully chosen, the mutual connection, the contrasts that emphasize what words can express, will encourage readers to pick up this grandiose and amazing anthology with poems from all over the world, and with curiosity trying to unravel underlying thoughts and emotional covered up meanings. The various and different backgrounds of the poets only make this more attractive, and fascinating.
Just like the changing seasons, poets also leave their mark in warm and passionate words, rainy days, winter cold and sleet ice, fresh spring moods with a desire for change and renewal. Like flying geese, they always look for another destination, a place to stay.

Literature and the arts have always held a prominent place in helping to define who we are as human beings and in enriching our lives.
As we are confined within the four walls of our homes literature at Atunis helps break the barriers, connecting us across different historical periods and time zones with others who have experienced similar tragedies. More importantly, Atunis Anthology shows us that we have a lot in common with others who are from distant lands and different times, encouraging us to appreciate the fact that we are not the only ones who are dealing with the worldwide devastation wrought by the pandemic.

Poets, all beyond the universe rhymes, passion and individual talent!

Atunes International “Anthology – 2021”, it brings together the poetry of the selected authors, in a difficult situation that the coronavirus has put everyone all over the world, not losing the human faith, but also it has created many of the social problems. Since the art and poetry in particular, as the embodiment of hope and the embodiment of poet’s concept of colors of life, today, more than ever before, the authors establishes what spiritual power is, they dive into the chaos thoughts of humans and their own fates, bringing the light vision of tomorrow, the one that will pave the way and can create their own constellations in this way; firmly believe that facing reality, as beings looking for meaning in a meaningless world, that’s already approaching to everyone. Poets, all beyond the universe rhymes, passion and individual talent, deep inside the poetic skin, occurring within the flow of thought and presenting the philosophical tendencies, that gives shape to the psyche of the human mind, conscious and artistic soul, writing in which words and verses are arranged in a rhythmic pattern. Poetry becomes an all-encompassing metaphor of the “offspring fantasy”, intimacy and the soul that human geneses are most closely related. Poetry gains a deeper understanding of metaphors, fundamentally spiritual, sincere and most important, essence of eternal life. It contains within itself the germ of a relation to whatever motives or actions, the most perfect and universal form that covers a multitude of human nature relationships. Poetry is a memoir form; poet walks in a field of dreams, and life is a fusion of happiness and sorrow, which go side by side, trying to extinguish or transcend human desires and passions, spirituality and human psyche, between sorrow and strength, memory and nostalgia, calmness of mind and inspiring wisdom, value and anti-value, with perfect beauty whereas grotesque is distorted, death and life, admiration, as the furthest thing from understanding, kindness, and respect play in healthy friendships.
Poets and poetry give powerful insight that is meant as the true meaning of life, it encourages a positive attitude of absolute respect for life and human and the divine world; hopes for intellectual and civic progress, national values and attribute values, full of artistic and creative integrity, that are important to us finding themselves. Everyone has a philosophy on life, whether they realize it or not. Someone – who speaks the poem and reflects the poet, that’s evoking a sense of universal space, between humans and nature, things in comprehensible–as the Divine being, talent, passion and creativity, as an artistic and literary critic and philosopher,
The writer and poet get lost in their thoughts, they get lost in the sight of poetry, and the writers and poets cherish physical beauty and discover the spiritual attributes.
The secret soul, memory and personal experience based on a metaphorical point, the component that deals with feelings or emotions and their creative, artistic products represent contemporary and traditional. The poet is the person in whom these powers are in balance, and he identifies the poles of the human soul, an attempt to explain observations of the natural world, representing the true nature of reality that reveals various sides of society, its pros and cons about pain and love. Socrates says that poetry is inspired by the muses, and is not rational, while Plato said, “Poetry is nearer to vital truth than history”. The poets write verses about being sensible and wisdom, perhaps even it is not easy to understand what Poets mean by the poetry. They are always in searching for the enigmas of the human soul, comfort and pain of each moment on journey of life. Poetry itself, which is as old as the language that humanity speaks, it smells the odor of a spiritual garden and love through verses or lines and whoever feels it, living with a thirst for life, a beautiful pain of human love that each one of us feel poet! What would the world be like without poetry? A world without poetry would be far darker place; it would be a life without breath and without life, we think! Poets are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition and of unspeakable love, tears and joy, sighing and crying, anxiety and sorrow, life and hope- tributes that are the most perfect example of strength; Artist and Human! To be an artist, poet, writer journalist, lover and beloved ones, it’s the beauty of the virtuous human by nourishing the soul on truth, goodness and beauty.
In offering this “Anthology – 2021” is a genial collection of selected poets and their readable poems. Anyone who enjoys poetry that comforts and inspires, who seeks a better understanding of the essential values of life, that looks into the heart of things, warmth, tenderness, understanding, kindness, love, affections and respect for the dignity in human personality. It strengthens our interest in human nature, elevates the drooping spirit, intensifies our aspiration toward the good and the beautiful in all that surrounds us, and tends to raise the level of our lives by helping us to see the essentials of life more clearly. A treasure chest of poems on such important themes as love, patriotism, home and family, and nature, many of them beloved favorites that will evoke wonderful memories. It is our earnest hope that this volume “Anthology – 2021” may contribute in some measures to the cultivation of that larger vision which helps us to “see life; the truth, goodness, beauty and human love.

***

Poetry, today more than ever, saves us from the homologation to which the global society of our times obliges us, it reveals the limits and resources, the potential of each of us, it is a necessary tool to rediscover our uniqueness. Art and poetry help us in the inner search, they push us to reconcile us with our instincts and our intuitions, they purify us from conditionings and while they denude our soul, they show our human finitude and our infinite desire to improve ourselves.
Poetry helps us to reconcile us with slowness and introspection and it becomes maieutic, in the sense that Socrates attributed to it, using a method of investigation that induced the interlocutor to shed light within himself.
Paul Klee said “even in art there is sufficient space for an exact research”.
Poetry feeds introspection, but even more sows questions and promotes critical thinking, it teaches us how to enjoy the beauty and joy of small things, but it is only when we listen to it that poetry reveals its pedagogical function and it leads us to reach those who suffer, to develop empathy and sharing.
Neruda has clear the task of the poet who must promote the awakening of consciences.
He said: “the poet must sow, he has to leave and return”
Again Quasimodo at the turn of the two wars wrote thus: “poetry must remake the man”.
And here is the imagination inherent in the creative gesture – let’s not forget that in all the Indo-European languages, but also in the Greek meaning “poiesis”, poetry means creation – so the imagination becomes concrete gesture in poetry, with a prophetic intent (profezia means to speak ahead, in favor of, to speak well …).
In 900 poetry is no longer the exaltation of heroes, wars and conflicts, but it is free from all forms of ideological dependence and, influenced by oriental philosophies marked by non-violence, it takes on an intent to discover the self, poetry help us to get free from prejudices and it promotes aggregation; the peaceful aggregation of poets from all over the world has repeatedly demonstrated the evocative power of the word.
