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...

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”

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”.

 

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.

 

hat 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.

 

Finally, we inform you that the Lisbon Book Faire 2019 is almost starting: already 29th May, until 16th June.

Remember our Literary Contest "Nature 2018-2019"

talesforlove

Dear Friends,

Here is our Literary Contest:

https://talesforlove.blogs.sapo.pt/literary-contest-soon-nature-75427?utm_source=posts&utm_content=1542838166

Please sends us your valuable work.

 

A poem to all poets by Mr. Ben, Chimezie Ihekuna.

In his Book "The Array of Thoughts"

 

Loving My Poetry

I love my poetry

That’s our matrimony

 

I treat her like my wife

That’s why our union has no strife!

 

How?

The praises of her virtues I’ve Poured

Her excesses of words I’ve taken Out

She made known our undying love through her Emotions

Everything about her has been a reflection of her Reality

She has been a success through her Yearning

 

In a nutshell, loving my poetry is loving my Poured Out Thoughts

My Poured Out Thoughts are made possible through the reality of my yearning.

 

Thanks.

Smoke in California...

talesforlove
We share a photograph that was kindly sent us from California, right now, just before the escape to the sea, to escape the smoke that threatens all the inhabitants ... some more than others.

The situation recalls the tragedies in Portugal in 2017 and Greece, but one that is feared will become even greater. We hope things get better soon.

 
Good readings and see you soon.

Literary Contest Soon - Nature 2018-2019 - "The Nature of the Universe"

talesforlove

 

From space, the earth is a small point of blue light. We are a little big nothing, hope made alive. Of course most of us just had the chance to see this blue on television or computer screens ... or in a photograph in a book. There is, however, a strange emotion in the chest when we come across this image.
This state of mind does not bind us, however, and we are tempted to look around at the universe: at the deep unknown beyond our imagination, which imposes upon us, its colors, its chemistry, its laws of Physics, their lives.

While our action on earth makes us think, given the reactions of nature in the form of floods, typhoons and huge forest fires, the universe remains a "land" of opportunities. Even literature seems to have an obligation not to repeat the mistakes of the past; everything should be better.

The nature of the universe serves as muse for this literary contest. And even a novel by Nicholas Sparks seems to be different if thought of in this immense and cosmic context. So impossible when a love said impossible, as impetuous as life in the middle of nowhere ...

It is in this context that, with great joy, we announce the beginning of the International Literature Contest "Nature 2018-2019", which this year runs from 15 October 2018 to 15 December 2018. On 1 February 2019 are announced the pre-finalists and on the 28 February 2019 the main winners.

Can poetry survive a universe that seems so contrary to life? What do we have to say about something that is still so unknown to us? Is there any connection, any comparison, that we can make with our terrestrial reality? How can science emerge in literature in our context? All this is a challenge and makes us think. Above all, it should be seen as an action of good mood and joy: an exercise of writing among friends.
It is time to act, to write, so here is also the invitation to participate in this contest and then the conditions of participation and other details.
Everyone is welcome.
