ANNOUNCEMENT:

 
Janice Almond returns with the third and final book of her BEING GRATEFUL series. BEING HAPPY: 10 Keys to Unlock Overflowing Joy in Everyday Living is now available for purchase on Amazon and wherever books are sold.

In her latest book, Janice gives you ten quick and easy keys to maintain your joy and discover purposeful living. If you are ready for a chance to truly appreciate life, this book will help you create inner tranquility, deal effectively with stress, and become happier. Here’s an excerpt!

Choose today to celebrate something in your life. It could be an accomplishment, a blessing, or, yes, even a setback because all of life benefits you in developing your character.

Tell yourself that today is the day you finally quit worrying. What has worry ever done for you? Think about it. Write down how it has helped you. I bet worry has only paralyzed you in some emotional way. I submit to you that although we have a tendency to worry, it is really a waste of time. It is useless. “There is nothing that wastes the body like worry, and one who has any faith in God should be ashamed to worry about anything,” Mahatma Gandhi- Indian Civil Rights leader, (1869-1948).

John Haggai said, “Worry is an intrusion into God’s providence.” You can’t worry and be happy at the same time. Worry will sap your joy! Get rid of your sorrow and enjoy your life to the full. Let God handle what you can’t. I heard someone say once, Pray and let God worry. If you are worrying, stop it this minute! Keep your body from wasting away.

2nd July 2018 - Poetry and translation

talesforlove

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.


Nota: no Livro "Pulsar" (2015), All Print Editora, São Paulo, Brasil

 

Enjoy your readings and writings.

What is good poetry? – Part I

talesforlove

This is the question that might have different answers, depending on whom gives the answer. A straight forward explanation, according to our beliefs might be: “good poetry is the one that expresses feelings”. As a consequence, you might think, and we agree, that taking this explanation into account: i) good poetry is like a portrait of feelings, and ii) it is something that has an impact on someone and that results of both the creation of the poet and the eyes of the observer of the piece of art.
Looking carefully to the book “Through the Looking Glass” by Lewis Carroll we will find a poem immediately before Chapter I.
For example:
“A tale begun in other days,
    When summer suns were glowing –
A simple chime, that served to time
    The rhythm of our rowing –
Whose echoes live in memory yet,
Though envious years would say ‘forget’”

We might be wrong but, we think, poetry do not need to have rhymes and certainly needs to make us feel something, in order to be recognized as something worthless.
Also, it “transports” us to another reality, as is the case when the author says: “summer suns were glowing”.
