2nd July 2018 - Poetry and translation

talesforlove

This month we present the translation of two poems by Brazilian poets.

 

First the poem by Ricardo de Souza, mentioning a positive world made of love and peace, regardless the duties, doubts and uncertainties...

 

Yes, always yes, by Ricardo de Souza


I live in the world of duties, doubts, uncertainties, taxes,
I live in the world of wars, of individualism, with lack of ideas,
I live in the world of beautiful landscapes, kind people, balance, love and peace,
I live in the world where complaining does not solve,
I come to this world with the poor purpose of leaving the little knowledge I know,
I come to this world with the duty of change, innovation, vision of the future for the quality of life of many,
I come to leave my name written in the memory of those I can reach.

 

The same poem in Portuguese:

 

Sim, Sempre Sim

 

Vivo no mundo de deveres, dúvidas, incertezas, impostos,

Vivo no mundo de guerras, de individualismo, afogado na pobreza de espírito,

Vivo no mundo de paisagens bonitas, pessoas bondosas, equilíbrio, amor e paz,

Vivo no mundo aonde reclamar não resolve,

Venho a este mundo com o pobre objetivo de deixar o pouco conhecimento que sei,

Venho a este mundo com o dever de mudança, inovação, visão de futuro em prol da qualidade de vida de muitos,

Venho deixar o meu nome escrito na memória dos que eu puder alcançar.

 

 A poem by the Brazilian poet Maria Coquemala.

MY SOUL


Light, my soul gets free and grows.
My soul that has never been so joyful,
who abandons this departing body.
       My soul transcends, advances in space ...
       Driven by the wings of desire, go to the infinite ...
       My soul goes through the rainbow.
       and is painted with the colors of joy.
All the painful memories are erased.
Silence for ever the voices of longing,
of sorrow, of pain, of suffering.
      They reveal themselves to my soul,
      the secrets of the Universe ...
      There are no unanswered questions.
      There is no longer body, agony and death.
And my whole soul, without cuts,
fulfill all my fantasies.
Reason and feeling merge in harmony.
     My walking soul advances in infinity
     unraveling paths in eternity.


Note: in the book "Pulsar" (2015), All Print Editora, São Paulo, Brazil

 

Original in Portuguese:

 

MINHA ALMA


Leve, minha alma se liberta e cresce.
Minha alma que nunca esteve tão alegre,
que abandona este corpo que se esvai.
      Minha alma transcende, avança no espaço...
      Levada pelas asas do desejo, ruma ao infinito...
      Minha alma atravessa o arco-íris
      e se pinta com as cores da alegria.
Apagam-se todas as lembranças doloridas.
Silenciam para sempre as vozes da saudade,
da tristeza, da dor, do sofrimento.
     Vão-se revelando à minha alma,
     os segredos todos do Universo...
     Já não há perguntas sem respostas.
     Já não há corpo, agonia e morte.
E a minha alma inteira, sem recortes,
realiza todas as minhas fantasias.
Razão e sentimento se fundem em harmonia.
    Minha alma andarilha avança no infinito
    desvendando veredas na eternidade.

March 2018 - Month of Flowers

talesforlove

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.

Literary Contest - "Nature 2017-2018" Soon...

talesforlove

 

It is with great joy that we announce the beginning of the International Literature Contest "Nature 2017-2018", which this year runs from 1 December 2017 to 1 April 2018. On 19 April are announced the pre-finalists and the April 28 the main winners.
We refer to joy in this announcement because this is the reunion of all of us in this adventure that has one of its great objectives to raise awareness for the protection of nature. A reunion between friends. This year, for example, California fires have made climate change evident.

International Literary Contest "Nature 2016"

talesforlove

 Follow us at: http://talesforlove.blogs.sapo.pt/data/rss

 

Dear Friends,
It is with great pleasure that today I inform you that the International Literary Contest "Nature 2016" has begun!
Unfortunately, regardless of the efforts of many people all across the globe, our mother land, planet earth,
 continues under the threat of the non sustainable activities that all of us believe are needed to our daily life.
In this context, the text of this contest in 2015 deserves to be published again here

____________________________________________________________________________________________________

The forest breaths and as a result the planet Earth also breaths, giving us the oxigen that we need to live.
 During the Winter, in the north of the planet, where the majority of the dry land exists, many trees
 lose their leafs and the carbon dioxide increases in the atmosphere producing a small increase in global temperature.
 During the Spring and Summer all the trees of the planet grow leafes and they capture carbon dioxide making the weather
 lightly fresher than it would be without their action.

To tell you the truth the trees are pressious everywhere, even if they are alone in a grey street of
 a city or together with a small group of other in a beautiful artificial garden. To grow a tree is to grow a friend,
 it is an act of poetry and who knows of the tales that the sun beams crossing their branches can inspire.

All the insects of the world and all the animals don’t care about written poetry because they have the visual
 poetry of flowers in a bed and the colorful grace of reefs. They purely enjoy the beautiful gifts of life!

But, do you know that if the mean world sea temperature rises by 2 degrees celcious that would cause serious
 damage to reefs? And do you know that the big secret of dogs is their friendship and friendly approach towards us?
Certainly, you feel that every living creature is Nature; we are Nature and we also deserve a poem…
 To protect flowers is to protect us.

Life is special and this is the reason why we invite you to submit your best poem or your perfect tale.

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The objective this year is to inspire you to write poetry that might be for
songs’ lyrics, taking into acount the connection between Nature and Freedom (Nature
linked with other connected words: Love; Peace; Justice; etc).

We want to select 20 poems and 4 stories for an anthology that will be published as an e-book in Windows System.

Rules:

    Every person in the world can participate as long as the submitted work is written in English;
    Each person can submit one or two poems, with no word limit, and one story, with maximum 3000 words;
    A First place, a Second place and a Third place will be identified.
    All the selected works will be part of the Anthology, that will be available for free for at least 100 countries;
    Free entrance
    Deadline date: 31 December 2016;
    By 31 January 2017 results will be announced at http://talesforlove.blogs.sapo.pt;
    The Anthology will be published during November 2015 and the first prize will be given as soon as possible;
    Works should be sent to Rui M. at ruiprcar@gmail.com together with name, works, country and e-mail contact. Put "International Literary Contest “Poems and Short Fiction for Nature – 2015”" in subject line. Payment of the donation must be done using PayPal to ruimigcar@gmail.com.

Alberta!


I'm sure that everyone knows about the environmental tragedy that took place in Alberta (Canada). An enormous fire destroyed during
many weeks the forest of this region and, at the same time, also consumed a substantial part of the lives of many people...
their memories and dreams. Nevertheless, we believe, they keep their willingness to build a new FUTURE!

This year we try to help in the reforestation of Alberta! If you wish to DONATE to plant trees, please contact:

http://worldpoetry.ca/


THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
