  10. 10. 10 First Prize snowy orchard the smell of summer in a baked apple Dorota PYRA Gdańsk, POLAND The snowy orchard evokes the irreparable and permanent invasion of a space destined for harvest and summer reverie. For it was not only the apples, legendarily the most tempting, round- shaped fruits, that perished in this prolific space, but also the quiet rest in the grass swayed by the insects’ busy humming. They all disappeared under the glacial, unforgiving whiteness. And yet the summer with its evanescent essence is still present in the balmy room, where an apple is being baked in the fireplace. The apple, which has stored within the summer scent, now bestows it upon one single chamber like some happiness carefully kept under its skin. comment by Corneliu Traian ATANASIU translation by ALINA BĂRBOSU
  11. 11. 11 Premiul Întâi livada înzăpezită mirosul verii într-un măr copt traducere din limba engleză de Dan DOMAN Dorota PYRA Gdańsk, POLAND Livada ninsă evocă cotropirea iremediabilă şi definitivă a unui spa iu menit roadelor şi reveriei estivale. Căci nu doar merele, legendar cele mai rotund-ispititoare, au pierit din acest spa iu generos ci şi tihna odihnei în iarbă legănată de rumoarea harnică a gâzelor. Toate au dispărut sub albea a neiertător- glacială. Şi totuşi vara, esen a ei volatilă, este prezentă în încăperea caldă unde, pe vatră, se coace un măr. Mărul, care depozitase în carnea lui aroma verii, o dăruieşte acum unei singure odăi ca pe o fericire păstrată cu grijă sub coaja lui. comentariu Corneliu Traian ATANASIU
  12. 12. 12 Second Prize humid night... a tadpole breaks the surface of ancient stars Chase GAGNON Detroit, THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA The event, that otherwise would seem insignificant, benefits from a mise-en-scène that brings it out and adds to it unsuspected values. The water’s mirror, that was stagnant, languid and unruffled, is now invaded by the tadpole’s emergence. The ancient stars, which since time immemorial had been admiring their magnificence and infallibility in the reflection rather subservient than accurate, are now bewildered. Life bursts, stuns, and shatteres equilibria. A tadpole and the world breaks away from numbness. The humid night gives birth to liveliness and hazard. The celestial landmarks are wobbling. comment by Corneliu Traian ATANASIU translation by ALINA BĂRBOSU
  13. 13. 13 Premiul al Doilea noapte umedă... un mormoloc sparge suprafa a stelelor străvechi traducere din limba engleză de Eduard ARĂ Chase GAGNON Detroit, THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Evenimentul, ce ar părea insignifiant altfel, beneficiază de o punere în scenă care-l poten ează şi-i dă valori nebănuite. Oglinda netulburată, stagnantă şi lâncedă a apei este violată de ivirea mormolocului. Stelele străvechi, care-şi admirau dintotdeauna grandoarea şi infaibilitatea în oglindirea mai curând servilă decât fidelă a apei, sunt descumpănite. Via a irumpe, strică echilibre, zăpăceşte. Un mormoloc, şi lumea e scoasă din amor ire. Noaptea umedă naşte însufle irea şi hazardul. Reperele cereşti se clatină. comentariu de Corneliu Traian ATANASIU
  14. 14. 14 Third Prize carnival wig – a touch of fantasy during chemo Minh-Triêt PHAM Paris, FRANCE Your soul is filled with fear, you ask yourself: why me of all people? How is it going to end? Am I going to survive? Then, after surgery, you start the chemotherapy treatment. The doctor has warned you: know that each of the growing tissues is attacked, the nails, the hair. A few days later, a tuft of hair gets stuck on your comb. You have decided to cut off all your hair and, while gazing at the mirror, you realize that you don’t look like yourself anymore. There was also a mental change, you are no longer who you used to be before. Now, all daily worries seem so trivial! If you were a man, you would shave your head. But you are a woman. Inevitably, you will have to fight: with yourself, with the disease. You will put on a wig. And ostentatiously, you’ll choose a bright colorful one to surprise the people around you, whose faces try to hide the worry every time they see you “What’s wrong with you, dear, what happened?” “Oh, just a whim of mine, a carnival fantasy” you reply. Note - the author of the poem, Minh-Triet Pham, is a man. comment by Dan DOMAN translation by ALINA BĂRBOSU
  15. 15. 15 Premiul al Treilea perucă de carnaval – un dram de fantezie în timpul chimioterapiei traducere din limba engleză de Cristina OPREA Minh-Triêt PHAM Paris, FRANCE Sufletul i-e plin de teamă, te întrebi: de ce tocmai eu? Cum se va termina? O să scap? Apoi, după opera ie, începi tratamentul chimioterapeutic. Doctorul te-a prevenit: vezi că este atacat orice esut care creşte, unghiile, părul. După câteva zile, în pieptene î i rămâne un smoc de păr. Te-ai hotărît să te tunzi la zero şi, uitându-te în oglindă, î i dai seama că nu mai semeni cu tine însă i. Schimbarea s-a produs însă şi pe plan psihic, nu mai eşti omul dinainte. Toate grijile cotidiene par acum aşa de neînsemnate! Dacă ai fi bărbat, te-ai rade în cap. Dar eşti femeie. Va trebui neapărat să lup i: cu tine însă i, cu boala. Î i vei pune o perucă. Şi vei alege în mod ostentativ una viu colorată, cu care îi vei surprinde pe cei din jur, ale căror fe e încearcă să-şi ascundă îngrijorarea când te întâlnesc. “Dar ce-i cu tine, dragă, ce s-a întîmplat?” „A, mi-a venit aşa, o fantezie de carnaval”, le răspunzi tu. Notă – autorul poemului, Minh-Triêt PHAM, este bărbat. comentariu şi traducere de Dan DOMAN
