This day

talesforlove

Today we share with you a music and a word of hope: please continue your lifes with hope in a better future.

 

You Raise Me Up

 

When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;

When troubles come and my heart burdened be;

Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,

Until you come and sit awhile with me.

 

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;

You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;

I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;

You raise me up... To more than I can be.

 

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;

You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;

I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;

You raise me up... To more than I can be.

 

[There is no life - no life without its hunger;

Each restless heart beats so imperfectly;

But when you come and I am filled with wonder,

Sometimes, I think I glimpse eternity.]

 

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;

You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;

I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;

You raise me up... To more than I can be.

 

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;

You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;

I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;

You raise me up... To more than I can be.

 

 

Free translation into Portuguese, by Rui M.

 

Tu me elevas

 

Quando estou deprimido e cansado, até às profundezas da minh'alma,

Quando os problemas ensombram o meu coração,

Então eu espero aqui em silêncio

Até que tu vens e te sentas, por instantes, junto a mim.

 

Tu me elevas, para que eu possa suportar as montanhas;

Tu me elevas, para eu andar sobre mares tempestuosos;

Eu sou forte, quando estou sobre os teus ombros;

Tu me elevas... A algo maior do que eu algumas vez poderia ser.

 

Tu me elevas, para que eu possa suportar as montanhas;

Tu me elevas, para eu andar sobre mares tempestuosos;

Eu sou forte, quando estou sobre os teus ombros;

Tu me elevas... A algo maior do que eu algumas vez poderia ser.

 

[Não existe vida alguma - nenhuma vida sem fome;

Cada coração irrequieto bate na sua imperfeição bate;

Mas quando tu vens e eu me sinto maravilhado,

Por vezes, acredito vislumbrar a eternidade.]

 

Tu me elevas, para que eu possa suportar as montanhas;

Tu me elevas, para eu andar sobre mares tempestuosos;

Eu sou forte, quando estou sobre os teus ombros;

Tu me elevas... A algo maior do que eu algumas vez poderia ser.

 

Tu me elevas, para que eu possa suportar as montanhas;

Tu me elevas, para eu andar sobre mares tempestuosos;

Eu sou forte, quando estou sobre os teus ombros;

Tu me elevas... A algo maior do que eu algumas vez poderia ser.

Poem and Lisbon's Zoo

talesforlove

A photo at the Zoo of Lisbon, 12th March 2020

Zoo 2 30 (1).jpg

Dyslexia semantics

 

There is the frustration of running but never coming.

The castration of creation asking for forgiveness.

The sudden impulse to not want to be in vain.

The sudden braking of who wants to lie down.

 

There is the inconsistency of loving life and death,

Whom by Destiny accepts such luck

And still the huge flower of the Alentejo

And the absence of those I no longer see.

 

But there is still the power of words

The strength of the spring that springs in summer

And the red blood red of my heart.

 

And there is the exchange of suffering for suffering

Through the eternal dawn, reborn,

Of whom it is for so long to write ...

 

Enjoy.

8th May 2019: Mr Ben, Claire O. and Lisbon Book Faire 2019

talesforlove

Sometimes it is possible to find messages and suggested life “paths” and adventures in poetry and short stories without, however, minimizing poetics. This is the case with the work of Mr. Ben (Chimezie) an author from Nigeria, whose work has just been published in e-book and paperback formats. His work is the one of a person who searches peace and harmony through literature. We invite you to find his writings here:

 

“Santa In Two Worlds”

Today, we also invite you to find a beautiful poem by Claire O’Connell (Ireland) winner of the International Contest Nature 2018-2019. In this poem you will find the unique association between ice and music, in a mysterious walk among castles of awaken dreams. Forget the present day, enter this “feeling”.

 

Iced Stone

 

 

There is a voice inched on ice stoned walls,

Hurled in an echo of phantom deep lunges,

Faded fast on a midnight run,

I was the girl without a song,

Longing for my hymn to break me free,

I yearned for you beyond the ocean sea.

 

The tears of rivers by lakes iced stone,

Voices haunt the nightmares which left me all alone.

 

I think of you in dreams gone wrong,

I only hear you call there,

For I awake and you have disappeared.

 

hat is an iced stone wall without a castle,

It simply melts in the heat,

All the melted water sings,

It sings the waves to sleep,

But not me I stay awake,

I walk these waters all alone,

The storm before me has passed,

But it robbed with it your soul.

 

Finally, we inform you that the Lisbon Book Faire 2019 is almost starting: already 29th May, until 16th June.

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.

interview... Paula Hawkins

talesforlove

During the Book Market Fair in Lisbon (2017) it was possible to interview Paula Hawkins. It was a very exciting experience and a privilege to speak with a writer with such a big success in thriller novels. Her answers were very important to us in order to better understand who is a writer and how life influences their work.

 

 

What does being a writer mean to you?

Writing is more a vocation than a profession: I’m lucky enough to be able to earn a living by doing it, but I think I would write – just as I always have written – even if I wasn’t published.  Since childhood I have relished making up stories: it took until I was in my thirties to find the confidence to show those stories to others, but the urge to create fiction has never left me.

 

Which season of your life do you think had the most influence on your writing?

Possibly my late teens/early twenties, which was the time at which I left Zimbabwe, where I grew up, and moved to London, where I live now. Those years were turbulent, and often lonely – I wrote a great deal at the time. At nineteen, I moved to Paris and lived there for a year. That was the first time I had lived alone, in a foreign city, speaking a language I struggled to master. It was lonely, again, but exciting too.

 

Is it possible for a writer to create their work without consideration for the feelings of the people around them?

I think perhaps it is possible, though I’m not sure that it should be. Writing is, for me, an exercise in empathy, in understanding others, in being able to place yourself in the position of another and imagine their thoughts and feelings. It would be strange then if while imagining the thoughts and feelings of fictional characters, one were to ignore the feelings of the real people in the society we live in.
