Right now, almost simultaneously, we are experiencing drought in Angola (is the Namib desert growing?), fires in Portugal (have we realized the real impacts of climate change, or is it just the eucalyptus problem?), a wave of heat in the rest of Europe (we will in the future go on vacation to the UK to have hot days and a long enough blue summer?) and the heat in New York (will it be normal?). These are only questions, and we realize that often the question is even more important than an answer.
 
This is another text on this blog, to make us think, nothing more. Now is time to read some poetry, perhaps the softness of the words will inspire us.
 
Little Fishies, by Karina Aldrighis
 
Gold little fish,
Stripy little fish,
Bubbles in the aquarium
Blu, blu, blu, blu...

Knocking on the glasses,
Pacing forth and back.
It gets stressed!
Blu, blu, blu, blu...

Lifted Flippers,
Steep Tail,
Synchronized swim,
Blu, blu, blu, blu...

Seaweeds in aquarium,
Pirate box
The Giant Oyster.
Blu, blu, blu, blu...

It opens and closes
Its funny mouth,
And hilarious bubbles!
Blu, blu, blu, blu...

Little stones on deep sea
Multicolours tones
It up and down goes.
Blu, blu, blu, blu...
 
Doesn’t it get tired of living
In a square world
Shaped by transparent glass?
Blu, blu, blu, blu...

Until now as far as I know
No one has died drowned,
it’d be an unusual fact!
Blu, blu, blu, blu...

the project and the context

talesforlove

We invite you to contribute to this "small" green project: http://ppl.com.pt/en/prj/tanque-captura-agua

 

Do you know that the global warming is already a reality? Do you feel it? In California the almond trees are already dying due to the absence of water? In the seas, many fish already changed their behavior, moving to new areas where they can find their "best" habitat. In land change is slower but why not being part of a better future? Your "small" contribution, can make the difference!
