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:

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.

"God the Rock" A poem by Janine C. (USA-CA)

talesforlove

 

God the Rock

 

God must love everything

She created. 
I saw her hard as a rock,
a cosmic rock,

black, imploded, 

condensed to nothing —

all her radiance withdrawn —
inscrutable Consciousness

reveling in a bottomless hole

where mighty light-swallowing Energy

was humming, sucking everything

into the dead-center

of her boundlessly fecundating heart.

How She must love everything

She became, has become and is becoming

as She showers and terminates her earth-shaking displays

to the ends of the blazing universe, eternally

and blissfully becoming and unbecoming—

forever God.

Poem - "Reach Out To Your Dreams" by Chimezie Ihekuna (Nigeria)

talesforlove

Reach Out To Your Dreams

 

It’s not an easy feat;

Considering the world we live in;

Full of distractions and discouragements

 

It’s not what you should give into;

Considering the aspirations you’ve always had;

Full of life and purpose

 

It’s not out of place to look into your perception;

Considering the fact that it’s where your dreams are first pictures

Full of desired revelation and fulfillment

 

So, see them happening

By finding them in your perception

Reach out to them: meaning…

Reach out to your dreams

Please sent us your work (poem or short story) to our Literary Contest "Nature 2018-2019"

A poem by Joan B. "Dewdrop Tears"

talesforlove

DEWDROP TEARS

 

 

Like the dewdrops on a beautiful flower,

 

The tears fall gently on my face.

 

The  small drops of rain cover the ground

 

With the tears of heaven reflecting the

 

Rays of the sun nourishing nature’s gifts,

 

Those dewdrops sparkle in the sunlight and

 

The beauty surrounding us refreshes our soul.

 

Don't forget our Literary Contest "Nature 2018-2019".

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.
