Poetry by Nikos Lyberis – for music
Nikos Lyberis professor of geology, a constant travel in deserts, deep oceans has dedicated one of his last poems to me and to Michel Doneda. You can read it here
I met Nikos Lyberis in Michel Doneda’s concert. I was playing after his performance with Emmanuel Cremer. After I finished the concert he came and he spoke about his poetry and we met each other. We have become friends and often we perform together with Nikos reading his poems.
His poems have the essence of haiku although his technique is unique and strange. His words are short with high density – one sentence and many pictures and smells come in your mind. He tries to make questions and not even answer them… (wise for those who know Zen)
