The forest breaths and as a result the planet Earth also breaths, giving us the oxigen that we need to live. During the Winter, in the north of the planet, where the majority of the dry land exists, many trees lose their leafs and the carbon dioxide increases in the atmosphere producing a small increase in global temperature. During the Spring and Summer all the trees of the planet grow leafes and they capture carbon dioxide making the weather lightly fresher than it would be without their action.

To tell you the truth the trees are pressious everywhere, even if they are alone in a grey street of a city or together with a small group of other in a beautiful artificial garden. To grow a tree is to grow a friend, it is an act of poetry and who knows of the tales that the sun beams crossing their branches can inspire.

All the insects of the world and all the animals don’t care about written poetry because they have the visual poetry of flowers in a bed and the colorful grace of reefs. They purely enjoy the beautiful gifts of life!

But, do you know that if the mean world sea temperature rises by 2 degrees celcious that would cause serious damage to reefs? And do you know that the big secret of dogs is their friendship and friendly approach towards us? Certainly, you feel that every living creature is Nature; we are Nature and we also deserve a poem… To protect flowers is to protect us.

Life is special and this is the reason why we invite you to submit your best poem or your perfect tale.

 

We want to select 36 poems and 4 stories for an anthology that will be published as an e-book in Windows 8.

Rules:

  1. Every person in the world can participate as long as the submitted work is written in English;
  2. Each person can submit one or two poems, with no word limit, and one story, with maximum 3000 words;

  4. All the selected works will be part of the Anthology, that will be available for free for at least 100 countries;
  5. Entry minimum donation 1 Pound, 1.05 Euros or 1.10 USD per poem and 2 Pounds, 2.10 Euros or 2.20 USD per tale. The donation will be used to help partners, to plant trees and build a monetary prize for the next contest. Maximum donation accepted 10 Pounds, 11 Euros, 12 USD;
  6. Deadline date: 30 September 2015;
  7. By the end of October 2015 results will be announced at http://talesforlove.blogs.sapo.pt;
  8. The Anthology will be published during November 2015 and the first prize will be given as soon as possible;
