Min Hvide hvide Verden Falder

                 roterer

styrter

 

                                               dykker

Tyngdekraften er som

økonomien i det hele

 

som verden i dit indre

                           der falder og falder

på asfalten

 

og snesporene der ikke findes

 

min hvide verden falder

 

i min mors indre

hvor jeg fødes

og kommer ud på den anden

side af livet

 

og døden er hvid

og falder

og det indre rejser sig

 

 

 

nede

 

 

 

under jordens tråde af

               lys

taallat nutaat/new poems

Hi there,

this is somehow strange. I’m challenging myself into this… posting new poems in English. I don’t know if this is a one-time shot – however, recently I realized some of my writings came out in english, intentionally or not, so here are a few that I want to share. A few of my friends got them by email already, but I must say though that I do write in my mothertongue greenlandic (kalaallisut) and danish.

Nunatsinni naalakkersuinikkut nikittoqaqqinneratigut eqqarsaatit nutaat, nutaajunngikkaluaqisullu qaffakaatikkusunnaqaat. Immaqa kammalaatit, ilaatigullu piffissap ilaani suleqatigisartakkat akornanni oqaasissaaleqinarnaviarani.

Ukiuni kingullerni eqqumiitsuliornermik, atuakkiornermik allatigulluunniit kulturikkut ingerlatsisunut peqataasuulluni qanoq-iliuserisartakkat ( or any attempts of the like) eqqarsaatigalugit, immaqa taamaallaat ulluni makkunani spejderiusaartarnissaq kisimi ilimagisinnanngorparput?

Tusagassiortut qanormita tamatumuuna nalilersuiniarpat? Pissanganaq! Ilumut pissanganaraluaq qanoq ilumulli allannguisoqalaassanersoq, eqqumiitsuliornermik atuakkiornermik, isiginnaartitsinermik, ataatsimullu isigalugu tassuuna ilinniartitaanikkut nunatsinni piginnaanilippassuit nukittorsarniarneqarnersut.
