July and August (1) 2019

talesforlove
Right now, almost simultaneously, we are experiencing drought in Angola (is the Namib desert growing?), fires in Portugal (have we realized the real impacts of climate change, or is it just the eucalyptus problem?), a wave of heat in the rest of Europe (we will in the future go on vacation to the UK to have hot days and a long enough blue summer?) and the heat in New York (will it be normal?). These are only questions, and we realize that often the question is even more important than an answer.
 
This is another text on this blog, to make us think, nothing more. Now is time to read some poetry, perhaps the softness of the words will inspire us.
 
Little Fishies, by Karina Aldrighis
 
Gold little fish,
Stripy little fish,
Bubbles in the aquarium
Blu, blu, blu, blu...

Knocking on the glasses,
Pacing forth and back.
It gets stressed!
Blu, blu, blu, blu...

Lifted Flippers,
Steep Tail,
Synchronized swim,
Blu, blu, blu, blu...

Seaweeds in aquarium,
Pirate box
The Giant Oyster.
Blu, blu, blu, blu...

It opens and closes
Its funny mouth,
And hilarious bubbles!
Blu, blu, blu, blu...

Little stones on deep sea
Multicolours tones
It up and down goes.
Blu, blu, blu, blu...
 
Doesn’t it get tired of living
In a square world
Shaped by transparent glass?
Blu, blu, blu, blu...

Until now as far as I know
No one has died drowned,
it’d be an unusual fact!
Blu, blu, blu, blu...

June and New Poetry

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.

 

What 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.


By Claire O' C.

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:

 

“Santa In Two Worlds”

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07RDYKQD6

 

“Twists of Life”

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07RC8JGFP

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”.

In memory of the victims of the Idai siclone

talesforlove

A poem by Stelio F. (Mozambique), second place in the Poetry category of the Nature Literary Contest 2018-2019:

 

Paint me
 
Paint with forgetfulness
like the wall of time
with smoke flashing souvenirs
in all private emotions
Paint me with a brush
Paint me
grab me
No brush
With coal
  ripping me off the ground
slowly paint without haste
with dry ink
that prides itself
on this screen that is life
without coming
in the roots of my being
from my intimate pleasure
 
Rui M.'s translation into Portuguese:
 
Pinta-me
 
Pinta com esquecimento
tal como a parede do tempo
com lembranças psicadélicas de fumo
com todas as emoções privadas
Pinta-me com uma escova
Pinta-me
Agarra-me
Sem pincel
Com carvão
   arranca-me do chão
pinta-me lentamente sem pressa
com tinta em pó
que se orgulha
neste ecrã que é a vida
sem vir
nas raízes do meu ser
do meu prazer íntimo

Winner - Poem - Invitation Literary Contest "Nature 2018-2019"

talesforlove

Dear Friends and Authors,

 

We are very happy to share with you this beautiful poem, by Clair O. (Cork – Ireland), the winner of the “International Literary Contest Nature 2018-2019”.

 

The Lady of Coram

 

Who is she wish of hand?

Fainted lady of Coram,

Calling to the frozen abyss,

Hush to the dead-

-Fast asleep.

 

Floating frozen ocean shore,

Lost of sight and broken sea floors,

Simple words that string the line,

Gain of nothing; lost of the divine.

 

She taunts them to escape frozen shores,

Under her rule of taunting pain,

Giving false hope to the frozen souls,

The lady of Coram owns the game.

 

 

 

What is her aim but to win?

She surely carries out her task,

Stay a moment and hear her callous laugh,

To silence the lost is her forte,

All the souls trapped in ocean ice,

Victims of directed fallen Angels winged in black,

The being of many names traps them,

Still to me she is the lady of Coram,

Calling to the dark I hear their roars,

It’s all I ever really hear,

Frozen soul, Ocean Sea,

I wait for the sun to set the shore alight,

Still all that is before me is the Ocean Coram,

I walk away all alone,

I ignore the lost and frozen,

Does that make me worse?

Still under all the façade-

Am I just like her - the lady of the dark.

 

Thank you for reading this website.

At the moment, with a small donation to use in the plantation of trees and other plants, we can send you some original art work. Here is the contact, to get more informed: ruiprcar@gmail.com.

See you soon.
