1st September 2018

This is a blog dedicated to literature and nature, based in Portugal, so it is fully justified to look at Spain. We went to see how the writer Cervantes (of Don Quijote de la Mancha) marked this country. We went to Anadalucia and we noticed how its main city, Seville, honors its writers. We saw beautiful plains, warm, like fire, and flowers hung in beautiful pots,  next to monuments with poetic gardens.

This poetic nature reminds us of Peru, with Leo Rojas (El Condor Pasa) and his music always very sister of the forest and the wild mountains.

 

 

 

 

And all this makes us remember Emily Dickinson and Massachussets.

Here we have more about her:

We end with a poem from Poland, by Eliza S.

 

Translated by Artur Komoter

 

Just for a Moment

 

If the world stopped for a moment,

I could sit,

listen to the silence that becomes,

watch how

a river stops flowing,

how the trees congeal into motionlessness.

 

If the world stopped for a moment,

and I with it?

I would not see

flowering meadows,

where a river becomes just a line,

and the still trees

look like sculptures,

I would not hear the ubiquitous silence.

 

If the world stopped

even for one day

then people –

could not hurt people.

 

Tylko na chwilę

 

Gdyby świat zatrzymał się na chwilę,

mogłabym usiąść,

posłuchać jak staje się cisza,

patrzeć jak

rzeka przestaje płynąć,

jak drzewa zastygają w bezruchu.

 

Gdyby świat zatrzymał się na chwilę,

a ja razem z nim?

Nie widziałabym

ukwieconych łąk,

na których rzeka staje się tylko linią,

a nieruchome drzewa

wyglądają jak rzeźby,

nie słyszałabym wszechobecnej ciszy.

 

Gdyby świat zatrzymał się

choć na jeden dzień

wtedy ludzie –

nie mogliby krzywdzić ludzi.

 

Translation to Portuguese by Rui M.

 

Apenas por um momento

Se o mundo parasse por um momento,
Eu poderia sentar-me
ouvir o silêncio que surgiria
e observar como
um rio pára de fluir
e como as árvores se detêm em gélido imobilismo.

Se o mundo parasse por um momento,
e eu com ele?
Eu não veria
prados floridos,
onde um rio se torna apenas uma linha,
e as árvores imóveis
fossem semelhantes a esculturas,
Eu não ouviria o silêncio omnipresente e total.

Se o mundo parasse
mesmo por um dia
então as pessoas -
não poderiam ferir as pessoas.

 

 

 

Bests.

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

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.

March 2018 - Month of Flowers

March is the month of flowers, in the northern hemisphere, of the force of nature in always overcoming the challenges that the mineral world presents to you. The force of beauty to flood the fields, plains or mountains, valleys or land by the sea. We are all to be congratulated for seeing these colors emerge on the horizon and this is a source of joy for all who are born this month, including the author of this blog.

We see, then, astonished, the wild coloring exposed in the following video, by Thomas Blanchard, published on Valentine's Day, 2018.

 

"Dance Dance"

 

 

From an artistic point of view, the flowers are represented in the 4 seasons.

The fire for the fall, ice for the winter, fast hatching (timelapses) for the spring and color inks for the summer.

 

Music : Velvet coffee ( Leonardo Villiger and Christophe Dugne Esquevin)
