Today, recalling the victims of fires in Portugal in 2017 and the actual fires in California, a photograph and the winning poem of the 2020-2021 International Nature Literature Competition are shared.
“A PRIMAL COLLOQUY” by Joseph (USA)
Resplendent in red,
Wing to wing
they stood on
the telephone wire,
in seamless synchronization,
against a putty-gray sky,
and orange clouds,
thick and heavy as
wet paint; a gusting wind
heralding the approaching
Heads, turning rapidly and
their language of love
while standing on the
words, grasping at
the conversations of a different
both long-ago evolved
from a universal
common ancestor —
as Darwin believed.

In this Edition of the International Literary Contest Nature (2020-21) we would like to thank you to:
Maximum Potential Education
and the Adjudicators “The Green Sparrows” and “The Green Cat”.
We would also like to drop a few words about the works received. Today we disclose here the winners, but a few other works will be included in this year’s Anthology. The pieces of poetry and short stories received portray feelings about humanity, the relation with mother nature and, sometimes, the impact of the pandemics in our life. Nature always blooms during Spring and, for many of us, the results of this Contest are known during that season of flowers and hope. Nevertheless, it is always time to be in deep connection with nature. There is always a sunset to light our lives.
During the next weeks we will share here some of the winning works.
Due to the pandemic we changed our plans and we are about to reveal the results of the Literary Contest Nature 2020-2021 by the end of May.
With our kind regards.
While we wait for the results of our Contest why not fly with our Dreams?
See you tomorrow.
"Flower’s Perspectives", by Rui M.
In a long dale, a white dot.
Petals in a green sea…
Uncanny survivor: as if life, was corpsing,
when she is on stage of nature.
The flower dyes alone, she´s a ruin.
Ruination of white after white.
The flower is picked up and offered,
She´s heritage, of behaviors’ meanings.
If the flower is really, there, at the green dale,
Then possible is everything.
Today we share a poem.
A SAND PIPER SHARES HIS BEACH, by DEBRA Manske (USA, 2021)
Suited in brown and white
he pokes the sand with pointed bill
for a breakfast of bugs.
He’s made tiny web-foot shapes
in the sand, so many for such a small soul
and my footprints are as confounded as his.
Though, I took my breakfast elsewhere,
I suspect it was for his counsel
that I came.
Thank you for the inspiration I recieved for nature conservation.
Thank you David!
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:
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?
