Poem and Lisbon's Zoo

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 ...




Global warming and how we see it ...


Presently, the preservation of the environment is mandatory, on one hand, pollution and destruction of the natural places where wild animals and plants live (the ecosystems that constitute the habitats of living beings), and on the other hand, the global warming (increase of global medium temperature). The latter, as numerous studies try to demonstrate, since the 70's of the 20th century, results from the accumulation of CO2 (carbon dioxide; 2 oxygen atoms - O2 - and one carbon - C) in the atmosphere, due to burning of fossil fuels. Because this phenomenon is mainly “visible” when taking into account a considerable number of years, there are many people who doubt its existence, and even its real cause. For example, rising sea waters are one of the phenomena most cited as evidence; therefore, it is good to realize that it is already a reality ... the fun, fascinating, for the most curious, is to understand how this fact is proved: it is simple, there are structures, maregraphs, by the sea, like in Cascais (Lisbon - Portugal), which measure the difference between the “height” of the waters at high tide and at low tide, with the midpoint being the “0” (zero) point of altitude on the maps, from which the altitude of the mountains in land are determined... Now, as these structures started operating in 1882, we know that until today, the average sea level has risen about 20 centimeters. The estimate, until 2100, is that it will rise by approximately one meter. Fascinating ... it is also to know that the comparison of the current temperature is made in relation to its average value between 1850 and 1880, since it takes at least 30 years to calculate reliable "atmospheric" values. Additionally, these years were before the Industrial Revolution, a time when the steam engine revolutionized factory production and transport, and with its use the consumption of coal went up a lot, leading to the 1st great release of carbon dioxide (CO2) into the atmosphere, due to human activity! We do not have original photos of the maregraph, but we invite you to a fascinating virtual visit, using the Cascais Town’s Hall page:

In Portugal, for example, there is still another one in Figueira da Foz and, in the rest of the world, these structures also exist in many countries.

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


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”


“Twists of Life”


“The Broken Mirror”


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.



Please send us your poetry or short stories to publish here as soon as possible.

Thank you for your visit and come back soon.

Let's visit this news from The Guardian and listen this music from Ed Sheeran...
