Poem - "Reach Out To Your Dreams" by Chimezie Ihekuna (Nigeria)

talesforlove

Reach Out To Your Dreams

 

It’s not an easy feat;

Considering the world we live in;

Full of distractions and discouragements

 

It’s not what you should give into;

Considering the aspirations you’ve always had;

Full of life and purpose

 

It’s not out of place to look into your perception;

Considering the fact that it’s where your dreams are first pictures

Full of desired revelation and fulfillment

 

So, see them happening

By finding them in your perception

Reach out to them: meaning…

Reach out to your dreams

 

=======

Please sent us your work (poem or short story) to our Literary Contest "Nature 2018-2019"

Bests.

Smoke in California...

talesforlove
We share a photograph that was kindly sent us from California, right now, just before the escape to the sea, to escape the smoke that threatens all the inhabitants ... some more than others.

The situation recalls the tragedies in Portugal in 2017 and Greece, but one that is feared will become even greater. We hope things get better soon.

 
Good readings and see you soon.

Literary Contest Soon - Nature 2018-2019 - "The Nature of the Universe"

talesforlove

 

From space, the earth is a small point of blue light. We are a little big nothing, hope made alive. Of course most of us just had the chance to see this blue on television or computer screens ... or in a photograph in a book. There is, however, a strange emotion in the chest when we come across this image.
This state of mind does not bind us, however, and we are tempted to look around at the universe: at the deep unknown beyond our imagination, which imposes upon us, its colors, its chemistry, its laws of Physics, their lives.

While our action on earth makes us think, given the reactions of nature in the form of floods, typhoons and huge forest fires, the universe remains a "land" of opportunities. Even literature seems to have an obligation not to repeat the mistakes of the past; everything should be better.

The nature of the universe serves as muse for this literary contest. And even a novel by Nicholas Sparks seems to be different if thought of in this immense and cosmic context. So impossible when a love said impossible, as impetuous as life in the middle of nowhere ...

It is in this context that, with great joy, we announce the beginning of the International Literature Contest "Nature 2018-2019", which this year runs from 15 October 2018 to 15 December 2018. On 1 February 2019 are announced the pre-finalists and on the 28 February 2019 the main winners.

Can poetry survive a universe that seems so contrary to life? What do we have to say about something that is still so unknown to us? Is there any connection, any comparison, that we can make with our terrestrial reality? How can science emerge in literature in our context? All this is a challenge and makes us think. Above all, it should be seen as an action of good mood and joy: an exercise of writing among friends.
It is time to act, to write, so here is also the invitation to participate in this contest and then the conditions of participation and other details.
Everyone is welcome.

1 August 2018 - Our Nature

talesforlove

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.

We would also want to drop a few words about the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle: marvellous and inspiring event that took our attention for a few hours even if with intervals to dream.

Let's visit this news from The Guardian and listen this music from Ed Sheeran...
