Jag vill inte hata

Sörjer över fallna
som täcker jorden.
Jag hatar vinden,
som sliter löv från
trädens grenar.

Sörjer över blommor,
som vissna
ligger utspridda
över marken.
Jag hatar solen,
som bränner blommor.

Sörjer över fiskar,
som kvävs
med kroppar nedsänkta
i gyttja.
Jag hatar floden,
som dränker jorden.

Sörjer över fåglar,
som genom sin långa flykt
gödslar jordens marker
med sina själar.
Jag hatar huliganer
som river deras bo.

Stockholm 1998

Så skall det inte förbli

Någon sa att vi är asfalt,
som skall trampas ner.

Och så blev det.

Någon sa att vi skall
tvingas i hårda former.

Och så blev det.

Det sas att vi skall

Och så blev det.

Men stanna, mina herrar!
Låt oss leva i fred.

Ta själva hand om era svarta får,
vi har våra herdar,
som skall ta hand om våra.

Helsinki 2000

Frodig jord

Idag älskar jag dig
mera än i går.

Därför skall jag
en dag
sprängas av
min kärlek.

Drunka i egna tårar.

Du skall aldrig veta,
hur ofta jag sträcker
mina händer mot dig.

visste jag inte,
hur djupt du finns i mig,
hur dina rötter har
spridit sig.

Gjorde av mig,
frodig jord,
beredd till växt,
livet. Belgrad 2009

[Traducidos del sueco al castellano por Cecilia Valdés Miranda].


por las hojas caídas
que cubren la tierra.
Odio al viento
que arranca las hojas
de las ramas del árbol.

Dolido por las flores
que, marchitas, yacen
esparcidas sobre la tierra.
Odio al sol
que quema a las flores.

Dolido por los peces
que se asfixian,
con sus cuerpos hundidos
en el lodo.
Odio al río
que inunda la tierra.

Dolido por las aves
que, en su largo vuelo,
abonan la tierra.
Odio a los bárbaros
que destruyen sus nidos.


Hoy te amo
mucho más que ayer.
Por ello, un día,
de amor

Ahogado en mis propias lágrimas.

Yo mismo no sabía
cuán profundo
estás en mí,
cómo tus raíces
se han extendido.

Tierra floreciente,
hecha por mí,
dispuesto a dar plantas,
la vida.

Belgrado, 1969-1970.


Alguien dijo que somos asfalto
para ser pisoteado.

Y así fue.

Alguien dijo que nos obligarían
a estados duros.

Y así fue.

Se dijo que nos lavarían
el cerebro.

Y así fue.

Pero, !Alto señores!
!Déjennos vivir en paz!

Cuiden sus propias ovejas negras,
nosotros tenemos nuestros pastores
para cuidar las nuestras.

BIOGRAPHY 27.03.2009

Dr Aleksandar “Saša” Milošević, a medical doctor by profession and a poet by avocation, was born on the 21st

July 1940 in Ohrid, Macedonia. His family, father Vladimir and mother Vaskresija [maiden name Pop Stefanija],

enjoyed a 150 year- long teaching family tradition.

Aleksandar completed his primary and secondary education in Čaćak, a small town in the heart of Serbia.

There he spent a lot of time with his father, who was a great admirer of the amateurs’ theatre “Abrašević”.

Aleksandar played a part in both theatre plays and specially adapted short Serbian folk tales.

His grandfather, Aleksandar Milošević, was one of the founders of the newspaper “Čačanski glas”

[“The Voice of Čačak”]. The upbringing of young Aleksandar helped him to become the founder

of “Tribina mladih” – the Cultural Institute for Young People and their Development in Čačak, 1958.

As a twelve year-old boy, away from home, dealing with financial hardship both in his school

and student days, Aleksandar undertook many jobs and worked very hard. In particular, he worked

as a milk delivery boy in the early morning hours in Belgrade, as described in 1963 by journalist

Vuk Trnavski from the Belgrade daily newspaper “Politika”. In the evenings Aleksandar participated

in the cultural activities of the Medical Club, and with their drama group won third place as a

conductor and actor at the Theatre Festival of the Students of Medicine of Europe, in Warsaw,

Poland in 1961, as they performed the play “Trojica” [“The Three Men”] written by Marjan Matković.

During his student days Aleksandar founded the Poetry Group and organized Poetry Reading Evenings

at the Faculty of Medicine and other places such as the Cultural Centre “Djuro Salaj” and the Academy

for Theatre, Radio and Television in Belgrade. He was very successful in presenting Jacques Prevert’s poetry there.

Aleksandar wrote many literary works during his medical studies. Most were written in prose

and published in local newspapers. His poem “Tih dana” [“Those were the Days”] was written there

in 1962. This poem was updated in 1998/99 under a new title: “Tih i ovih dana” [“Then and Now”].

After graduating from the University of Belgrade, Faculty of Medicine, in 1969, Aleksandar was the

first in his family not to follow the long family tradition of teaching. He was drafted and served

compulsory military service for a year. Shortly afterwards he left Serbia, then part of Yugoslavia,

and travelled to Italy, Sweden and Finland, finally settling in both Sweden and Finland.

Dr Aleksandar Milošević was the first medical doctor of Yugoslav origin in Finland. Very soon he

became a member of the Cultural Finnish–Yugoslav Association, where he established the first

course for Finns who wanted to learn Serbo-Croat, his native language. The name of the course

was “Learn Serbo-Croatian in Finnish”, and for this he wrote the first handbook in 1971. He held this

course for several years, with over 120 students. The Association is still in existence.

From Finland, from time to time, Dr Milošević travelled to China. At the International Institute

for Acupuncture, University of Beijing, he studied acupuncture. His interests were mainly concentrated

on pain-free child delivery, and he researched this topic both at the University of Medicine in

Helsinki and the Clinic of Gynaecology in Beijing. In 1977/78, at the University Clinic of Gynaecology

in Helsinki [Naistenklinikka – Helsingin Yliopistollinen Keskus Sairaala], Dr Milošević was the first to use

acupuncture treatment for pain-free child delivery. He presented his work “A study of pain relief

with acupuncture in connection with delivery“ at Congress in Colombo Sri Lanka in 1993 in front

of 1200 participants. After that he was honoured with the title of Professor of Acupuncture from

the Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine of Beijing - Colombo December 1993,

The Open International University, Faculty of Complementary Medicines.

In Sweden, together with four colleagues, and with the permission of the Ministry of Health,

Dr Milošević helped to establish acupuncture healing treatments in 1983. Previously, such treatment

by medical staff had been strictly forbidden in Sweden. Nowadays this is the most procured therapy

of alternative medicine in Sweden. Dr Milosevic is still working on the Foundation Board of

the Association of Swedish Doctors for Acupuncture Therapy.

In the 1980s and early 1990s, in both Sweden and Finland, Dr Milošević made significant contributions

to public recognition and acceptance of acupuncture treatment as an alternative therapy. In 1994,

he helped organize the first Nordic Exhibition for Alternative Therapy in Medicine, in Stockholm.

Dr Milošević participated in numerous international medical activities, as a volunteer for the international

humanitarian organization “Emmaus”, similar to the “Red Cross”. On the island of Java, Indonesia,

he participated in the treatment of patients suffering from leprosy, where he applied acupuncture in

their treatment. He spent two years, between 1985 and 1986, in the children’s shelter Yayasan Penghibur – Jepara.

During this time Dr Milosevic also reinforced his professional status as a Doctor of Medicine. He was certified

in medical fields in both Western and Eastern Medicines: anaesthesiology [in Finland], general medicine

and occupational medicine [in Sweden] and acupuncture [in China].

Dr Milosevic did scientific research on numerous medications, with greatest success with the pain killer

Voltaren–Ciba. His work was published in the American Medical newsletter “Current Therapeutic Research“

No. 6, in December 1988. In April 1998 the German newsletter “Merc” published his research on Emconcor –

a medication for lowering the high blood pressure – which was based on knowledge obtained at a seminar for

the treatment of increased blood pressure at the University of Cambridge, England 1994. This work,

to which several of his colleagues had also contributed, was presented at the Open International Meeting of

Medicine in Darmstadt Germany, 1998.

Aleksandar continued to write poetry, in particular dedicating it to children including his own, Aleksandra–Irja

and Vladimir–Esu. His poetry was written in Serbian, Finnish and Russian.

The spiritual strength to overcome all the difficulties he was faced with, Aleksandar drew from the lyrics he wrote.

Aleksandar participated in several poetry festivals in Sweden: in Vasteras 1984 and 1985, Malmo 1993, Stockholm 2001,

Goteborg 2002, where he received literary awards and certificates. He presented his poetry at Poetry Reading
