The Eurovision Song Contest in Portugal was a very lively event. From the Terreiro do Paço to the Parque das Nações, there was a lively excitement that made it possible to feel the music and see the day with new eyes. The poetry of the good disposition, of the endless waits in the queues, of the musical tourism, of the multiple flags.

It was worth knowing the Eurovision radio ...

It was worth seeing friends from Australia.
There is poetry even in kangaroos.

And although the winning song is not the one that, in poetic terms or the transmitted message, is the favorite of this blog, it has a happy rhythm that is worth knowing. Congratulations to Israel!

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. The suffering of the people was enormous and to note the replacement of a green cloak by the color of ash, it is sad. In the world, the fact that the concentrations of CO2 in the atmosphere are at very high levels can only make us aware.
It is time to act, so here is also the invitation to participate in this contest and then the conditions of participation and other details.

Flower Reborn (In Pedrógão)

Stubborn; As only a woman knows how to be.
Knowledgeable; As only a Goddess knows how to be.
Feminine and beautiful among the black of death,
reborn, alive, dependent on strength and not on luck.

Beautiful is your strength that gives color to the Morning.
Sunrise agape renewing Hope.
And the wind packs it, shrouded in gray dust,
that everything around him contemplates her Dance.

It is she, the Flower, who rises on the mountain,
Again, to prove that, who sowed her, was right  ...
To prove that a Goddess looks at us from the front:
without fear, despite the lifes the wind took.
