July and August (1) 2019

talesforlove
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...

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.
 
 

SmokeCalifornia_1Eng.jpg

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.

Wildfires in California

talesforlove

There is a horrible situation in California that we can not remain indifferent to ... Maybe we can donate something and for this it is important to read this publication:

Meanwhile we expect better news and we remember our literary contest of poetry and short stories related to nature and its preservation!

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.

Until October,
 
Be Grateful
Be Determined
Be Happy

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

talesforlove
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)

talesforlove
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.

Yes, our competition is over. It is this tiredness, as a sign of our dream to last in time. We want to be a luminous beacon for writing, one star among many.
Now, we will carefully read all the submissions. See you later.
