GEORGE M.SARIDAKIS - DROSOSTALIDES (DEWDROPS) - BOOK & CD
I wish I could be a dewdrop
my wild flower
to leave the time to pass
on your 'body'
I will become a dewdrop
my lovely flower, into your leaves
τo prevent the rays of the sun to leave you dry
A few world for George Saridakis
They say that people in their metaphysical dimension akin or even refer to mental and innermost attitudes in wondrous natural features, creating a charming confusion between the real and the imaginary. My good friend George Saridakis, me at least with "confused" and even confusing, every time I meet with the serenades. Yes, George Saridakis, contains the wisdom of the water!
The "poetic silence of speech," has exactly the magical serenity of a sudden lake, which is reflected on it a deep poetic world. The verse of the same, as expressed through the couplet has the momentum of the river, the river mansion, what does not get down through the undergrowth and xerofyllies. He wants to be clear to the mouth of. Like George Saridakis honors inspiration.
Words, images, meanings and allusions in his work, have the courtesy of a proud rain. Thereof, rather than lost in a sea prefers to die. A rain hitting the glass, only when he has something to say. This deep, thoughtful, allegorical and nice that Saridakis builds mantinades of.
As a man of spirituality, Giorgis could be a scholar mantinadologos. A poet, who would mobilize his literary knowledge, writing lyrics with gimmicks and bragging !!! But here too, the popular wisdom led him to this very road that followed Nestor Vitsentzos Kornaros. He speaks words, in the simplest manner, for the deeper things. And this exactly is the difficult virtue of him who writes.
I read and re-read his verses. Some I knew them as songs. It is disarming. To win without any battle. And here is the great contradiction of his art. While on wins, you want to be the winner!
It is certain that the poetic world of George Saridakis, as recorded in the serenades, is currently one of the most valuable anafores- deposits of modern Cretan poetry.
I appreciate and respect him
