Peruvians in Istanbul

Last day I was just passing through Galata (Beyoglu,Istanbul) and I came across these peruvian singers.I love their kind of music and the instruments they use.Makes the melody so relaxing.They' were also selling some ethnic objects as well , cool things! It was the first time I came accross some peruvians and I enjoyed this experience..To keep on with this country's atmosphere I'd like to share one poem of a peruvian poet , whose poems I find spiritually so powerful!Hope you'll enjoy too!


Black Messengers

There are in life such hard blows . . .

I don't know!
Blows seemingly from God's wrath;
as if before them
the undertow of all our sufferingsis embedded in our souls . . .
I don't know!
There are few; but are . . . opening dark furrows
in the fiercest of faces and the strongest of loins,
They are perhaps the colts of barbaric Attilas
or the dark heralds Death sends us.
They are the deep falls of the Christ of the soul,
of some adorable one that Destiny Blasphemes.
Those bloody blows are the crepitation
of some bread getting burned on us by the oven's door
And the man . . . poor . . . poor!
He turns his eyes around, like
when patting calls us upon our shoulder;
he turns his crazed maddened eyes,
and all of life's experiences become stagnant,
like a puddle of guilt, in a daze.
There are such hard blows in life.
I don't know

César Vallejo
Peruvian Poet
