International Literary Contest "Nature 2020-2021"

talesforlove

Nature is our mother. It is our baby crib to where we “return” everytime we feel we need comfort and renewed hope. Hope: that feeling made of insights into a peaceful, happy and green future and present.

A tree help us to see the good “flavors” of a garden with her shadow that protects us from our stellar parent: the Sun.

He is also the source of our energy, he is also the source of our poetry; and poetry, maybe just another way of living or another tool to live in community.

Today, Covid-19 make us feel like a prey, thinking in a new condition inside a world built by mother nature. Hope, to face this reality is needed more than ever and we will move forward albeit not ignoring this new “map of life” and new mindset.

Our Contest Nature 2020/2021 is a new opportunity that we, as organizers, create to reach the rest of the world. Every Contest is a challenge for authors participating and to people that make it happen. This year we prepare new relations of Nature and Love; Nature and Ecology; Nature and Energy; Nature and Friendship; Nature and Gardens; Nature and Cinema; Nature and Music and Nature and Family. Family, that fundamental asset during these pandemic times.

This year we would like to share with you some inspirational photos and “horizons” and we kindly invite all authors to visit the following places/websites:

https://www.lisbonlux.com/green-lisbon-10-beautiful-parks

https://www.proflowers.com/15-best-botanical-gardens-california

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_botanical_gardens_in_Canada

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peneda-Gerês_National_Park

 

 

 

Additionally, we invite all authors to Honor one cinema director, for example, Hoody Allen, specially considering the eventual relationships of Nature with his work. The work by Hoody Allen is inspirational because he portrays many aspects of Human Nature. Nevertheless, you are free to even criticize his work. Who knows, for example, if there is still a human characteristic, so inspirational, that should take him to give us the pleasure to see a new cinema creation? A new screenplot?

World Day of Dream: "I Dream" by Rui M.

talesforlove

I Dream

I Dream. With a bright day, round as the world,

with the seas bowing to the horizon,

with the dragonflies taken to the sea, taken by the wind,

that between tides it takes them to fly over the waters,

and me dreaming of dolphins that jump higher,

than memories, than distant mountains.

 

I Dream. With seaweed, that fraternally my feet involve,

like someone who embraces someone who is loved, as a calling,

and I Dream of dives in surface waters where

water music and Balearic sounds mix

with shrimp hormones and UV from the sun

in the colors of the corals ... that Dream of the day.

I surf these big Dreams ...

 

I Dream. With skies of hope, which are reflected in stones,

creations of art, insects, flying low, in Dreams,

and with black spiders hanging from precipices.

I Dream. With the warm air in the sky, soft as a burning life

and I hear footsteps on land, crackling, on grass,

my steps to the river,

where I get on a raft and paddle, paddle ...

I go on and on, among alders, undulating,

and splashes of cold, green water.

 

And finally, beyond the last corner of the river:

again the sea ... again to embrace somebody,

again we Dream…

 

Note: In a day of climate strike.

Enjoy.

This day

talesforlove

Today we share with you a music and a word of hope: please continue your lifes with hope in a better future.

 

You Raise Me Up

 

When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;

When troubles come and my heart burdened be;

Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,

Until you come and sit awhile with me.

 

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;

You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;

I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;

You raise me up... To more than I can be.

 

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;

You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;

I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;

You raise me up... To more than I can be.

 

[There is no life - no life without its hunger;

Each restless heart beats so imperfectly;

But when you come and I am filled with wonder,

Sometimes, I think I glimpse eternity.]

 

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;

You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;

I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;

You raise me up... To more than I can be.

 

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;

You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;

I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;

You raise me up... To more than I can be.

 

 

Free translation into Portuguese, by Rui M.

 

Tu me elevas

 

Quando estou deprimido e cansado, até às profundezas da minh'alma,

Quando os problemas ensombram o meu coração,

Então eu espero aqui em silêncio

Até que tu vens e te sentas, por instantes, junto a mim.

 

Tu me elevas, para que eu possa suportar as montanhas;

Tu me elevas, para eu andar sobre mares tempestuosos;

Eu sou forte, quando estou sobre os teus ombros;

Tu me elevas... A algo maior do que eu algumas vez poderia ser.

 

Tu me elevas, para que eu possa suportar as montanhas;

Tu me elevas, para eu andar sobre mares tempestuosos;

Eu sou forte, quando estou sobre os teus ombros;

Tu me elevas... A algo maior do que eu algumas vez poderia ser.

 

[Não existe vida alguma - nenhuma vida sem fome;

Cada coração irrequieto bate na sua imperfeição bate;

Mas quando tu vens e eu me sinto maravilhado,

Por vezes, acredito vislumbrar a eternidade.]

 

Tu me elevas, para que eu possa suportar as montanhas;

Tu me elevas, para eu andar sobre mares tempestuosos;

Eu sou forte, quando estou sobre os teus ombros;

Tu me elevas... A algo maior do que eu algumas vez poderia ser.

PULSANT LIFE AT SEA (Brazil) by Tauã R. (Anthology Nature 2018-2019)

talesforlove

Dance life in its smallest essences
It is an infinite set of probabilities
Life pulsates in the smallest complexities
It is an ode to existence.

 

Endless waves wander in the sea
They are dense waters of life to dance
Look here, look over there.
So many beings to contemplate

Even in the face of so many diversities
The sea still
There are so many colors, it's a beautiful art.
There are so many ways, it's a challenge apart

The infinite and challenging blue sea
From crystalline tones to an immensity to be discovered
There are so many depths to enter
So many places to walk

 

Waters in motion
And they reveal suffering
The Attempt of Enchantment
In the midst of so much disenchantment

 

Pollution-free thought
Destructive activities
Lack of reflection
Infinite consequences of degradation

 

Enjoy.

noi doi ne ciocnim OR we two collide (Romania) by Ion C. (Anthology Nature 2018-2019)

talesforlove

1.
noi doi ne ciocnim
involuntar
atât de tare
încât facem brusc
schimb de vise
apoi adormim pe patul meu de gânduri
îmi reamintesc ca eu doar visez
ce mi se-ntâmpla
totul se întâmpla
atât de repede
cât pauza
între reclame
e toamna, îngenunchez, în fata padurii
ca în fata plutonului de executie
împart fiecarei frunze
câte o pâine coapta
strazile sunt pustiite
lumea e parasita

de o vesnicie
în loc de inima, am ridicat
o biserica
fara ziduri

 

In English:
we two collide
involuntary
so cool
that we do suddenly
exchange of dreams
then sleep on my bed of thoughts
I remind myself that I just dream
what happens to me
everything is happening
so fast
how much longer
between ads
it's fall, I kneel down in front of the forest
as in front of the execution platoon
share each leaf

one loaf of bread
the streets are deserted
the world is gone
for eternity
instead of the heart, I picked up
a church
without walls

 

Enjoy.
