Transition into 2016

Like a river reaching it's cross road,
leaving behind all dreams not fully filled,
I will keep on trying to follow them
by crossing countries,mountains and oceans,
I won't be caught in the sandstorms of this world,
but swim I shall until a shore I will find,
the sand will be my bed, the sun my blanket,
the stars my friends but mainly I will wish well
to all who can stand with me for a little longer
to reach the transition into hopefully a great and peaceful
2016...". 

It's coming down

Oh what a beauty there is outside.
It's all white just to despite old and
young for having missed us this
past week.
Now with a vengeance it's coming down,
but people are laughing, they are
inside enjoying a great bon fire.
Let it come, let it come, I won't mind
I have no desire other than see the
young ones fooling around.
Something is crackling, but I don't
know what... is it the log in the fireplace
or my bones that protest the big change.
Let it come down, I will just make some
hot coffee and warm ginger bread for
company. Oh I wished for a change but
never expected mother nature would take
my world and it was not even a prayer...
but it's coming down slowly, furiously,
it stops and than starts all over again.
So now I close this box in front of me,
and slowly dressing up like frosty going
out and see what's like it to embrace the
white and cool snow coming down on me...

Smart Nature

Nature the teacher of  excellence
of all subjects.
She will fool you in believing that
you can play around with
without having a price tag.
Nature is smart and subtle, it
create life to feed our whims and
pleasures.
Most of the times nature speaks
to us in her mysterious language
but we pretend deafness and
more intelligent and neglect to react.
Nature is pureless only if man knows
how to ignore it's cries for help or
tears of panic.  It's telling us not to
invade her space in so many ways.
Leave it be, nature knows what it is
doing but us the human fool, we master
abuse and laugh about it.
Nature one day will say: "Enough is
enough, you either listen to my advice
or I will use force to make you listen".
Will it be too late or are we so fools
that we wish our own destruction???

Turmoil

When on you feel sad and lonely,
never look in a mirror.
Never shut yourself in, but go out,
go out and see the world.
You will see that your sadness is not
as dark as you believe.  In the sky
there's always a light that shines for all of us.

I just wish I had a friend to keep me company,
one who would keep silence until I speak.
One that would walk at my pace and offer me
a hand should I find a pebble sticking to my shoe,
or a soft and gentle hand who offers me a handkerchief
to wipe that salty taste that would eventually reach
my lips chapped by the cold or the heat...
That's what I would need to keep on living one
day at the time.

Mistress

"The sea, like a mistress or a secret lover,
gets hold of you so softly, gently that eventually
you fall in love with it's moods and charms.
Don't try to runaway from it, you can even
curse it, adore it, for sure you will be fed  of
her goods or be your last resting sight during
one of her furious anger.
All try, but no one can conquer her fully,
she's like the mistress that keeps showing you
the most beautiful beauties until you
stupidly betray her, then it becomes
merciless and with just cause.
Oh how I wish it was my backyard view
at the opening of my eyes, never making
her a solid promise, but respectfully I would
be honest, I would show her charm and
beauty that fills me just at her sight..."
That's my love for the sea.

Ray of light

There's no eternal darkness in one's heart,
a ray of light will pass through the darkness.
Darkness is for incredulous humans who
loose the innocence they were born with.
Light is for the eyes the child believing
the world is his.
Look up and wish for your innocence
to be given back to you the looker of that
ray of light and hope.....

Feelings and emotions

Feelings are strange emotions that live within us.
Feelings maybe sad or joyous, controlling
our daily life. 
Don't hide your feelings, don't lock them away
and throw out the key.
they will resurface when you least expect it.
Live your feelings, show your emotions to
the world, you will see that you are not
the only one on this planet with those
feelings and emotions.
WE ARE ALL humans, let's not forget it.

A flower's prayer

The prayer of a flower to the world.


"Pitch dark is the world for sure,
but a ray of light is a gift to enjoy
nature sparkles.
Don't envy my darkness but be happy
that my senses distinguishes
what's around me nightly or
in full daylight..."

Magic dragon adventure

If I could have one and only one
wish, it would be a magic dragon
to follow around the world.
Nothing would be smooth, for sure encounters
would try to stop our voyage.
But perseverance and courage,
hope and faith Me and my friend the dragon
will ride through clouds and sunny days,
won't need shelter from the rain,
following the bright stars along with the rainbows,
we will be FRIENDS for ever or until we reach our
destiny.

Where is the snow?


My beautiful country with no snow.
I miss that fine cold powder,
sure at time it was bitter to be pelted by
it.  But other times in the late hours of the
day, one could just stroll and feel the
beauty caressing your face. A gentle flake
would pose itself on my eyelashes or
sticking out my tongue I could feel that
feathered tingle of flake just caress it.
What have we done that the snow does not
fall on my house, my city, my country,
pretty soon it will stop all together and
future generations will not have the privilege
of knowing what is a flake of snow.....

Red

Never whore anything red in my life,
but always admired people who could
and did.
Never received a red flower
but then could never manage to photograph
one that gave me the perfect shade of red.
So to help this phobia of mine,
I'm going to buy a RED flower,
try to conquer my fears of RED,
pass it on to someone who like me
never managed RED properly.

PS: I'm glad to see people who can still come
and read the few feelings that I still have
these days, believe me it's a hard life but
still worth living it.

Loosing battle

"A moon or a flower,
broken music notes,
maybe just a bad dream
when December arrives
is enough to put you down.
So don't let sorrow stop
you.  Get up and fight the
loosing battle that became
your life.
It's worth every breaths,
every your movements,
every steps you take,
even if they are baby steps. 
You are fighting back to stop
the loosing battle of sickness..."

When I am ....

"When I'm young and foolish,
I turn my back on friends and family.
When I'm old and senile, I answer
back to protect myself.
When no one want to look at me
no matter how old I am,
I turn my back to them and suffer
in silence...."

Souvenirs...

Souvenirs are made
to go back to in
good times and in bad times.
Good times we feel warm inside
when we remember.
Bad times induces us to reflect
on what we could have done
better for a brighter future.

Fly away

"Fly away little beauty,
when you need a friend
I'll be here for you.
You know that my love for
you comes from the heart
withing me, so I'll let you
fly until you come back to me ...".

Morning dew

"Let me catch the morning dew,
save it for creatures with a dry mouth.
I will not spoil this dew, but offer it as
a sign of peace and love to those who
will come and drink the fresh morning dew
that I saved for them..."

Search of perfectness

"As my eyes first open,
I search for a perfectness
around me and the world.
At the passing of the hours,
I can only anticipate what
lays ahead. 
In the evening, with a calm
shadow following me ,  I
finally enjoy the spectacle that
I have anticipated all day long,
A bright ball of fire shinning
on my land before wishing me a
serene goodnight again and
again until I tire of this phase
and run to another that will be
mine for eternity..."

Mish mash

Life is a mish mash
a friend who doesn't believe
in himself anymore.
We all get curves in life,
dark, somber, diabolic, they
hurt way down to the pits
of the stomach,
don't allow certain taught
darken life, in reality they
only render you sad,
are good to create havoc
with your head and
sickens your heart. What is
meant to be will be,
it's written in the stars,
are you fortunate to be born
on the good star, then maybe
your path will be smother than
mine.....


I read some words almost like
these a long time ago when I was young
and foolish. I believed that all stars
and mish mash were the same for all.

Fading stress

"For a while in your day stop
give yourself time for the stress
to fade away.
Let your eyes search the golden
surroundings and maybe you might
see the dancing of a gorgeous tree.
Open your ears and softly you will hear
the wind running and singing clearly.
Tomorrow might only be, neons back time
have gone. A future can and can't be,
but today is your day to embrace and
squeeze life for another day..."

the mist

"Let your body be enveloped
by the morning mist to cleanse
your body and walk in the
evening fog to shake out the
miseries accumulated since
the morning mist..."

Cherokee Prayer

Hold on to what is good, even if it's a handful of earth...
Hold on to what you believe, even if it's a tree that stands by itself...
Hold on to what you must do, even if it's a long way from here...
Hold on to your life, even if it's easier to let go....
Hold on to my hand, even if I've gone away from you.

Why publish these words is beyond me at this time,
but it's good to go back to the words of the wiseman....

And here is the italian version by  Gabriela Balaj.
Tieni stretto ciò che è buono, anche se è un pugno di terra.
Tieni stretto ciò in cui credi, anche se è un albero solitario.
Tieni stretto ciò che devi fare, anche se è molto lontano da qui.
Tieni stretta la vita, anche se è più facile lasciarsi andare.
Tieni stretta la mia mano, anche quando mi sono allontanato da te

A friend...

A friend you will at times take
more time than you imagine
to recognize.  It is not your fault
but circumstances of life that
makes it difficult to see through
oneself and others.
A friend is he who offers you not
is clean kerchief but instead is
dirty one. That's how you can see
that he passed many miseries in
his life and he will be able to understand
yours and forget his.
A friend is the penny that keeps coming
and back and back.
Eventually you will start to look at it
and see that the friend is what you
needed in good times, in bad times,
in poorness or richness....

Field mouse

I'm a tiny field mouse.
No one pays attention to me if they happen
to look at me.
Sorry people if you believe I'm not a living
being.  Like you I eat, I drink, I play and I sleep
and make babies also.
So when you see me don't start screaming,
my ears are very sensitive and I get headaches
just like you.
I love to be cute to children, they don't know
the difference between a mean animal and a playing
one.  Most of the time it's the parents that annoy me,
the point at me and laugh at me.
Oh well there's a saying in the human language that
goes like this:

"Don't spit in the air -
eventually it will come back on your face..."
Please be kind and considerate towards
us animals.

Ciao little one from heaven

A letter from heaven from a father to
his daughter on her wedding day.
"Hi there my darling little girl it's daddy
from heaven coming to see you on this
special occasion.  I'm sorry little one
if I can't be with you physically, but
believe me I'm right beside you even if
you don't see me.
How I dreamed of this day, since your
first scream at your birth, I knew deep in
me that you would be a bundle of joy and
pride to me.
I know your heart is heavy and I (as your
father) can feel your heartbreak and your
fitting tears trying to push through me.
I'm trying hard not to let these sentiments
take possession of your body, you really
don't need them and don't deserve them,
TODAY it's your day to shine bright in
the crowd that will surround you and the
young man you brought to me to accept
my approval of your choice.  He is a good
fellow, be good to him and he will be good
to you and the family you will together
create when you feel ready to accept and
take responsibility for a tiny screaming read
head like the one I held in my arms as soon
as you come into this world.
Today I will eat and joke with you, I will try
my best not to step on your feet on your first
dance as a married women, you will feel my
arms around you and like in the older days
you tried to make yourself comfortable  on
my feet and saying "Daddy make me dance..."
Little one I thank you for your continuous love,
for your taughts when you remember me, I know
that deep in that little heart of yours there's always
a place that is mine.  So little one I bless you from
heaven and when you need me, you just say that
little word that came out of your instantly when
you needed me....
"Daddy, stop and listen to me, I need you".
and I will stop what I'm doing in heaven and
come to you.  It's my promisse to you on your
wedding day.
Love angel Daddy.

It's starting...

Why do my bones complain,
they should be happy, no more
humidity in the air.
The nights have started to cool down,
the critters of the night don't really
sing anymore.  The fireflies are
gone, it's too cold for them, now
I know why my bones complain,
it's started, the sun is slowly loosing
it's warm power. Oh colors you
decided from one day to another
to just up and change, from rich
dark green, you have now rubbed
the golden color from the sun,
and the moon is putting a drop
of dew on twigs and leaves,
on branches and flowers just to
remind them that soon they
will become fire and then just
drop and die.....

Rebel

My heart bleeds from despair,
my mind is rebelling from stupidities,
my body never tires from telling me
to slow down, but I stubborn as I can be
don't want to stop and reflect on life
has I see fit to live it.
Do I make any sense, how can anyone
reading these words can judge me for
what I am or am not.
Don't judge me and for sure I will not
judge you in anyway or shape.
Don't ask me to do things I don't want to,
it's against my rules and rules are made
to be followed and not broken just because
they do not fit my life style....

Paradise

Paradise is not for all people.
Only a few are born under the lucky
star and find paradise on this life.
We can look around but not all is gold that
shines. So paradise is in our mind and maybe in
our hearts...
Never despair in joyful moments,
but be happy when you are in sorrow.
Sorrow is what makes you win your paradise
either on earth or elsewhere.

Beauty

In Cherokee - just enjoy in silence

Please after reading these few words below,
click on the image and just listen....

Some people no matter
how old they get
never loose their beauty,
they merely move it from their
Faces to their Hearts.
Facility with words that reaches
the deepest crevices of your
inner world or facial expressions
and words that even trying to hold
yourself, you will burst of laughter.
Be yourself and don't worry, you
can reach all those around you who
need your love and laughter .....

Sanctuary of ignorance

There is a new dawn for selected people.
There is a sundown for those who make the day.
Why is it that all day and evening are not
the same to population around the globe.
I don't believe anyone can answer me,
do not wish to hear lies or fantasies of writers
or prophets. 
So let me live, my life, in the sanctuary of ignorance...

A trickle...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lC2Fu20X_KY

Click on photo to ...
 
A trickle at a time,
a drop just for me,
another drop followed
the initial ... until it
created a downpour.
Never believe a weatherman
but you can rely on your
aches & pains announcing
changes in the weather.
We try to outsmart nature
but then nature outsmarts
all of us either a simple man
of the land or a high appraised
scientist.
So listen and feel and you will
not get caught off guard.

Gorgeous day

Today it is a gorgeous day outside ...
But I can't really enjoy it ....
A wedding is on my agenda....
NOT MINE that is ...
but a relative and who am I
not to attend this type of occasion.

No tears .... please



Tears are lost on people,
like the rain trickling down
from the white clouds  above
the heart freezes and is oblivious
to the shape and sounds the dark
or white fluffy cloud makes ...

As it turns....

Let the world turn and you follow it....
Let your eyes do the walking,
your ears the sentinels that will go on
alert at the first sound.
Do not be a passive creature but an
active to the fullest power you have in
your hands.



Colorssssssss


Colors be it sharp or just fainted are exceptional to
one's eyes.

The beauty of a flower has no limit........

Yellow sun

When the sun is not present on a daily basis,
then you have no choice than to brighten
your day by yourself.

Rain, rain and more rain....

As a child when we were tired
and impatient of the rain that came
down day in - day out, my grandmother
used to make us say a few words like these:
..." rain rain go away please come back
another day..."
So we repeated these words maybe
20, 40, 50 times and either because
we were small children we kind of
believed them. The trick was that we
had to say them just before going to bed
so I won't go on about this  saying..........

You make your own opinion and prove
my granny right or wrong!

Wild Rose land

I dreamed of a country called Wild Rose...
Where the night and day are
amalgamated one to another,
a stranger wouldn't make a difference
to this phenomenon after a while.
A land with little dancing clouds
day in and day out.
Horses born in this harsh land run wild
and other times parched with creeks and rivers
they just roam for survival.
Alongside coyotes they will stop at one of
a million lakes to salute a goose or geese
who playfully release their never ending melodies
to the moody wind.
Is it a roar or is it a warning to baby bear not to
adventure too far in the wild, or will it send the
groundhog back in his hole for fear of the
unknown until all the termination of the commotion
reaches his safe sanctuary.
A heat blanket surges from the belly of the land
swayng fearlessly up and down the horizon.
A gentle wind passes close to the caked cracked land
and from the mouth of the heart, emerges a tiny bug,
one can't tell what it will produce in a week or maybe
a day or two.  Experience tells the viewer it will be the
most beautiful and respected flower of these prairies
and harsh land ... none other than the WILD ROSE to
embellish the scenery of a hard earned name,
respect and beauty in a land with no name.

Our world


Sun rays accompany you while
on vacation.
It runs with you and around you,
nothing could stop their run
searching for a little spot to rest a while,
not knowing that they were born
to renew itself every and each time the
sun commands it.
Oh rays you are the joy on ones face
you give out your smile and cries freely.
You dance on the oceans and play
hide seek in the forests of Amazon or
the tundra of the north poles.
You burn faces of the laborer and
those who do nothing than smile or
people who build castles then just
washed away by your friend the ocean.
Along with your best friend the wind
you can create havoc or just give out
a little breeze and warmth to those who
suffer in silence.
Early morning little creatures await your
waking up to start their days from the
depth of the ocean to the highest mountain
known to mankind.

Leave a note please...

I see so many people or I should say people
from so many countries who come,
look around and I really don't know what
they think of my initiative.
I don't pretend for a looker or a reader to
leave a long, elaborate message,
but just "Hi I'm from (your country)
and just stopped by for a moment...."
My passion is to reach as many people
as I can either with my photos that are not
professional ones but just from another
human who love to show my world.
Thank you and happy to see you coming.

Our lives!

Yes our lives are full of sunshine
or at other times dark with
black clouds hovering over our
heads.
At times we feel happy like
children and will jump in a puddle
of rain accumulated on a side
walk hoping that no one will see
us and think we need to be seen
by a medic.
Other times we will walk out
on a balcony and just look at
the stars twinkling in a pitch
dark sky.
But my best time is when I
talk to the moon, telling her that
she looks beautiful withher
orange look, or her gray and
black face. Or simply I ask her
to walk with me in silence so
both we can enjoy a few minutes
of peace in this tormented world...
So if you excuse me I'm going to
join the moon outside and just
ask her to be my companion for
a while before I go and sleep
for the night.

Good night or good morning
wherever you are on this planet.

I'm back....

Finally I'm back on this side of
my two blogs.  The Italian one I
had a chance to keep it going.
This one in multi languages had
a bit of problems and also lack of
time to dedicate to it.
But now I'm determined to come back
and bring it back to life. Hope you
will join me in my adventures in nature,
in short stories or at times only a one
line.
Thank you all.


shhhhhh. just listen
