International Literary Contest "Nature 2020-2021"

talesforlove

Nature is our mother. It is our baby crib to where we “return” everytime we feel we need comfort and renewed hope. Hope: that feeling made of insights into a peaceful, happy and green future and present.

A tree help us to see the good “flavors” of a garden with her shadow that protects us from our stellar parent: the Sun.

He is also the source of our energy, he is also the source of our poetry; and poetry, maybe just another way of living or another tool to live in community.

Today, Covid-19 make us feel like a prey, thinking in a new condition inside a world built by mother nature. Hope, to face this reality is needed more than ever and we will move forward albeit not ignoring this new “map of life” and new mindset.

Our Contest Nature 2020/2021 is a new opportunity that we, as organizers, create to reach the rest of the world. Every Contest is a challenge for authors participating and to people that make it happen. This year we prepare new relations of Nature and Love; Nature and Ecology; Nature and Energy; Nature and Friendship; Nature and Gardens; Nature and Cinema; Nature and Music and Nature and Family. Family, that fundamental asset during these pandemic times.

This year we would like to share with you some inspirational photos and “horizons” and we kindly invite all authors to visit the following places/websites:

https://www.lisbonlux.com/green-lisbon-10-beautiful-parks

https://www.proflowers.com/15-best-botanical-gardens-california

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_botanical_gardens_in_Canada

https://www.worldwildlife.org/places/amazon

https://www.gorongosa.org/

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peneda-Gerês_National_Park

 

 

 

Additionally, we invite all authors to Honor one cinema director, for example, Hoody Allen, specially considering the eventual relationships of Nature with his work. The work by Hoody Allen is inspirational because he portrays many aspects of Human Nature. Nevertheless, you are free to even criticize his work. Who knows, for example, if there is still a human characteristic, so inspirational, that should take him to give us the pleasure to see a new cinema creation? A new screenplot?

Poetry and Hope

talesforlove

Es así

 

Es la luz de tus poemas

Que deslindo mil teoremas

Primero el del amor, después el del dolor

y por fin el de ese sideral calor.

 

Es por la luz de tu poesía

Que en esa tristeza melancólica

Siento la alegría paradójica

De quien sufre y está contento.

 

Y es así que desde la hombrera deseo,

Hechas a lápizes de colores, los colores de este mi amor,

Rendido al temblor poético de este ardor.

 

Soy finalmenete el allende aquende,

Sin nexo, sin nada mas solamente

Sinopsis de frío azul con la luz distante.

 

And so

 

It is in the light of your poems

That bypassing a thousand theorems

First of love, then of pain

And finally the heat of that sidereal.

 

It is by the light of your poetry

What in this sorrowful sorrow

I feel the paradoxical joy

Of those who suffer and are content.

 

And this is how the desire,

Made in colored pencil, the colors of this my love,

Rendered to the poetic tremor of this ardor.

 

I am finally beyond short,

Without a link, without anything else

Synopsis of the blue cold with the distant light.

Enjoy.

A Poetry and a Prevention Advice

talesforlove

Alone

 

Alone, we are the deep abyss,

For the roads, pieces of nothing.

The monologue without interlocutor and

The lonely enchanted forest ...

 

Recently, there has been a lot of information on television regarding the use of alcohol to disinfect surfaces. One of these reports that alcohol must be 70% in order to be truly useful in killing covid-19.


It turns out that many people, including myself, bought 95 or 96% alcohol and therefore less effective. Therefore, the challenge is to transform 96% alcohol into alcohol with a concentration between 61% and about 70%. The fact that we buy a bottle with 96% alcohol means that it has a 4% portion of water and the rest is alcohol. Knowing this is a matter of making a simple account. That said, I suggest mixing, for example, 36 parts of alcohol (95 or 96%) with 14 parts of water or a different number of parts but maintaining the same proportion. The idea is to prevent the alcohol from evaporating too quickly, even before killing the virus. Water slows down the alcohol evaporation process.

 

Enjoy.

Poetry, Music: Stronger than covid-19

talesforlove

Assente immaginaria


Tu, tu sei la mia assenza.
Quando scendono le tue parole,
Ti sento vicino alla mia porta.
Tu sei il fuoco, e dentro le mie labbra.

Forse il candore che riposa su di loro
è  il motivo per il quale io sento.
O l’affanno malinconico di colei/ di quella che osa.
Il tragico presagio dell'amore che sento.

Ma tu non sempre sei/ vieni con me.
Sei anche lontano!
Fiume tempestoso/agitato ... liberato!

Le parole,che ricordo, mi passano tra le mani.
Hanno ormeggi, ami e ganci!
Ma il vento li avvolge al sidereo lontano ...

 

Ausente imaginaria

 

Tú eres mi Ausente.

Cuando desojas tus palabras,

Te siento cerca, a mi puerta.

Eres el fuego, y dentro de mí cavas.

 

Tal vez el candor que sobre ellas descansa

Es la razón de lo que siento.

O el silbido lo melancolico de aquella que se atreve.

El presagio trágico del amor que siento.

 

Pero, no siempre vienes conmigo.

También eres lejanos distantes!

Rio revuelto ... suelto!

 

Palabras, que recuerdo, me pasan por las manos.

Tienen amarras, anzuelos y agujas!

Pero el viento se las lleva para el sideral lejos ...

 

 

Imaginary absent

 

You, you're my Away.

When you drop your words,

I feel you near my door.

You are the fire, and you are mine.

 

Perhaps the candor that rests on them

Be the reason for what I feel.

Or the hissing hiss of the dumb one.

The tragic presage of the love I feel.

 

But you do not always come with me.

You are also far away!

Rio uprooted ... loose!

 

Words, I remember, pass through my hands.

They have moorings, hooks and hooks!

But, the wind winds them to the sidereal far ...

 

The Mission - "Gabriel's Oboe" (cover by Bevani flute)

A poem "Green clippings" by Rui M.

talesforlove

Green clippings, by Rui M.

 

One night I photographed leaves in the skies ...

Black sailboats, cut out of moonlight

and I evaporated in that cold,

of backlight, immensity and proximity.

I felt like I wasn't already there,

but in the firmament, far away ...

 

Heat breath exhales ...

 

In the lens of the camera I held her during a moment,

but she is there, eternalized for those who want to see her;

the Tree lends the branches, I the hands,

God the light, the moon seduces us,

and us, the others: the illusion, which paints with magic,

this life, that, one day, was born in us.

 

Enjoy.
