Petals, music and International Literary Contest Nature 2020-2021

talesforlove

Dear Friends,
Today our Literary Contest continues and we share a new poem by Rui M. and share a song made of hope!

 

Pieces of petals in poetry


I


The last Winter's flower
Is the first of air ironies
As it is the Spring's precursor

 

II

A petal falls down... mistress

as slowlyslowlyas a breeze...

Turns aroundas a whirlwind


And I imagine myself at Hanami:
For shameI deny any pollution.
But who will believe my verse today?

The Nature's petal fells down happily...
Bright colour of hope I see in her...

Inspirational Poems

talesforlove

Please, send your poem or short story to blogsnat@gmail.com (Literary Contest)

Today, we would like to share two poems. 

“Bunches of Fruit” by Eliza Segiet (Poland)- translated by Artur
Komoter (Nature 2018)

 

My dream island
is soaked with the smell of
oleander, jasmine,
and in the gap between the cliffs
illuminated by the extent of azure.
Mine is
shapeless, bordered by sadness
and desire.
The sea gave up everything
it had previously received.
How much of the world is here!
A symphony of elements.
And where are the bunches of fruit?
I know.
They grow on trays
bedewed with memories of the tropics,
they look for shade
and tempt with the effusion of colors.

 

Joan Beebe (USA) - “A peaceful walk” (Nature 2018)


A renewal of spirit seems to take place
While following a path along a meandering brook.
Walking through a forest of beauty and serenity
One’s mind is filled with the sights and soft sounds
Of nature’s peaceful surroundings.
Time stands still and you are enveloped
Within the outstretched arms of trees as if
Welcoming a friend,
The brook we follow has a sound of its own –
Like a beautiful melody of joy.
For a few moments, one is mesmerized
By the feeling of being one with the
Natural rhythm of a forest so alive.
As the brilliant sun sends its golden rays
Upon the canopy of green above us,
One hears a quiet whisper of this forest –
It is the gentle wind flowing through the trees
And sheltering us as we finish our Peaceful Walk.

 

Enjoy.

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

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?

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.
