An Invitation to A Special Day

Mesut Selvi 1957 (TURKEY)

Ladies,gentlemen and the people who'll create an unforgettable day!
I am so excited that I can shake your hands and hug you,right away.
As you know,there have been some miraculous moments in the living.
Like watching the rainbow's waving and smiling after a stormy raining.
Or like kissing your darling after an unlovable long quarrelling.
Or like finding YourHiddenMoney,as you're suffering fromPennilessness.
Now,at this moment,I live an incredible moment,and I'm thrilling.
Don't be puzzled if I suppose myself as an old film star who is acting
"To be or not to be,this is the main problem".Or I may be singing.
Like a singer,singing,"One o'clock,two o'clock,three o'clock Rock"
Or I may shout with an increasing voice,excitedly,
Like an announcer who's announcing,"Now,a poet from Turkey,Mr.Selvi"
Or I may start to my speech with a slow self-confident voice,seriously
Like a lecturer, lecturing,"Today,we're going to talk about poetry."
While you are watching me like a very crowded chorus,carefully
I may suddenly start to conduct you like an orchestra conductor,
I can also try to explain how my heart's beating,like an AtomicReactor
Right now,I want to invite you to spend our time and energy perfectly.
To share and join the memories of this magnificent moment,unlimitedly.
Relax,concentrate and focus on this unique entertainment,willingly.
