1 August 2018 - Our Nature

With extreme weather phenomena, all over the world, our care for nature seems to be totally justified. This August: why not be careful and put all the plastic in the dustbin? why not think of the best way to use technology without harming nature? May poetry inspire us.

 

Fragility - Corina Savu (Romania)

 

Waves break through the shore

flooding the banks with tears.

Under the eyelids, pray lost its sound

And music is just a fad and broken sound

that separetes the worlds.

 

It's raining...

With tears from the sky

Over lonely souls,

Traveling to dusk

From the heights of suffering

With a final "burning" embrace

 

What's left after the gray rains fall,

...backwards...

from the soul to the forehead,

from the earth from which the life went down to heaven?

 

We gather broken wings...

in fact, there are only piles of ash, but

we lie that we are still alive,

that we still feel,

that we have not yet lost our way or His hand.

 

Ah, it's raining...

With tears that washed away sins

Over dried hearts,

Traveling from fire

Into eternal peace

With fragile wings.

A new poem by Joan B. "Nature's fury" for California

NATURE’S FURY
 
California fires stretching across thousands
Of acres with trees and brush waiting to
Feed this monster’s appetite.
Great walls of flames  devouring
The ready food of timber.
Flames and smoke rising higher into the sky,
But the ongoing march of this giant of fire
Still taking with it hundreds of homes
And other buildings.
Many evacuations and those people
Have no choice but to escape
The persistent oncoming wall of flames.
It will take many years to recover the land
And the normal lives of those who lost everything.
However, the day will come when nature will
Take over and the beauty that was once
There will again be glorious in its new life.
 

See you soon.

A poem about wildfires by Chimezie Ihekuna - Mr. Ben (Nigeria)

The truth about wildfires.

It is an aberration to nature
The substance of fire is being  abused
It plunges humanity  into the  ocean of cataclysm
Trees are humanity's breathing machines
But when  there is an inferno, breathing seizes.
There is always hope
When humanity thinks of making more trees
There  will be free breathing machines.
Hope of the future: seeds of today
Harmony with nature is the pulling-down of wildfires
 
 
Nice readings.
See you soon.

2nd July 2018 - Poetry and translation

This month we present the translation of two poems by Brazilian poets.

 

First the poem by Ricardo de Souza, mentioning a positive world made of love and peace, regardless the duties, doubts and uncertainties...

 

Yes, always yes, by Ricardo de Souza


I live in the world of duties, doubts, uncertainties, taxes,
I live in the world of wars, of individualism, with lack of ideas,
I live in the world of beautiful landscapes, kind people, balance, love and peace,
I live in the world where complaining does not solve,
I come to this world with the poor purpose of leaving the little knowledge I know,
I come to this world with the duty of change, innovation, vision of the future for the quality of life of many,
I come to leave my name written in the memory of those I can reach.

 

The same poem in Portuguese:

 

Sim, Sempre Sim

 

Vivo no mundo de deveres, dúvidas, incertezas, impostos,

Vivo no mundo de guerras, de individualismo, afogado na pobreza de espírito,

Vivo no mundo de paisagens bonitas, pessoas bondosas, equilíbrio, amor e paz,

Vivo no mundo aonde reclamar não resolve,

Venho a este mundo com o pobre objetivo de deixar o pouco conhecimento que sei,

Venho a este mundo com o dever de mudança, inovação, visão de futuro em prol da qualidade de vida de muitos,

Venho deixar o meu nome escrito na memória dos que eu puder alcançar.

 

 A poem by the Brazilian poet Maria Coquemala.

MY SOUL


Light, my soul gets free and grows.
My soul that has never been so joyful,
who abandons this departing body.
       My soul transcends, advances in space ...
       Driven by the wings of desire, go to the infinite ...
       My soul goes through the rainbow.
       and is painted with the colors of joy.
All the painful memories are erased.
Silence for ever the voices of longing,
of sorrow, of pain, of suffering.
      They reveal themselves to my soul,
      the secrets of the Universe ...
      There are no unanswered questions.
      There is no longer body, agony and death.
And my whole soul, without cuts,
fulfill all my fantasies.
Reason and feeling merge in harmony.
     My walking soul advances in infinity
     unraveling paths in eternity.


Note: in the book "Pulsar" (2015), All Print Editora, São Paulo, Brazil

 

Original in Portuguese:

 

MINHA ALMA


Leve, minha alma se liberta e cresce.
Minha alma que nunca esteve tão alegre,
que abandona este corpo que se esvai.
      Minha alma transcende, avança no espaço...
      Levada pelas asas do desejo, ruma ao infinito...
      Minha alma atravessa o arco-íris
      e se pinta com as cores da alegria.
Apagam-se todas as lembranças doloridas.
Silenciam para sempre as vozes da saudade,
da tristeza, da dor, do sofrimento.
     Vão-se revelando à minha alma,
     os segredos todos do Universo...
     Já não há perguntas sem respostas.
     Já não há corpo, agonia e morte.
E a minha alma inteira, sem recortes,
realiza todas as minhas fantasias.
Razão e sentimento se fundem em harmonia.
    Minha alma andarilha avança no infinito
    desvendando veredas na eternidade.

The Eurovision Song Contest in Portugal - 12 May 2018

The Eurovision Song Contest in Portugal was a very lively event. From the Terreiro do Paço to the Parque das Nações, there was a lively excitement that made it possible to feel the music and see the day with new eyes. The poetry of the good disposition, of the endless waits in the queues, of the musical tourism, of the multiple flags.

It was worth knowing the Eurovision radio ...

It was worth seeing friends from Australia.
There is poetry even in kangaroos.

And although the winning song is not the one that, in poetic terms or the transmitted message, is the favorite of this blog, it has a happy rhythm that is worth knowing. Congratulations to Israel!
