Yes girls, reading and writing, time to BE, that's wonderful.
We had a long walk today at the Villa Borghese, Pincio ... and an Apéritif at Doney's in Via Veneto. The day was sunny, but cold. I soooo loved the cold breeze on my cheeks..... and wonder of wonders in the green grass of the Park, there were already some Margheritine, the small daisies!

I wrote:



Park Villa Borghese


Wow, what emotion in finding this picture ... Spring at Villa Borghese ... and look what the girl picks!!


Love, Margherita Smile
I was so happy to see all your images today, as I was a bit moody....so much beauty! While dreaming...I found this picture from another passed season..(Inda, I have been thinking of what you said somewhere, that you are not a poet...I doubt it...

Love,
Lilie



Schneemaenner ..

Fund to build and fun to look at!

Dear Lilie, my brother used to build enormous "houses of snow-ice" in our garden ... there was so much snow then ... quite some years back! And we sat in there to chat with friends ...

Love and Happy Epiphany ...

do you immerse in water Lilie?

Margherita Smile
Dear Karima, PureBeauty on chopra sent Epiphany wishes today and speaks of a tradition in Northern countries of immersing in water on this day to assure blessings for the New Year.
So I see you are in synthony, as you choose the water. I love it too, that's also my element, but snow is water after all and I love to plunge into it too.


and ice skating ... ohhh what nostalgie ...

Love, Margherita
Dear Margeritha, I never heard of that ritual...so...also feel a need to say...I don´t know really how to say this...but life was never something for me...because of tragic reasons of my heritage



With Love

Lilie

Lilie, sweetheart, your words are so sad and I feel an urge to reach out to hug you.

I know that life can be extremely difficult, especially when we carry with us experiences of childhood. I guess through the picture you posted ... maybe you were a lonely girl, or there was little sunshine in your heart. And then in Sweden it is really also true, that melancholy is more diffused than in Southern countries, where there is more sunshine. I think for myself it has been important to live in a Mediterranean country, because I also have my deeply melancholic moments. Nonetheless my faith and the belief that we are loved and cared for from Above, whatever, always helps me to get through those dark tunnels into the Light again. As you know I often describe this in my poems.
You are loved, Lilie, you have a beautiful soul and your poems also reveal that you connect to the Divine spirit, residing within.
Meditate and let love flow into you and surround you. Heritage can be heavy I know, we must learn to detach and to walk in the light.
I am doing this now with you, hand in hand.

With love, Margherita

I’m open to love
my heart invites you to dance
come share my delight


senryu by Margherita
Wonderful Margeritha, you have touched me so deeply now. Thank you! I am not there where I take delight in this world..if not for a rose, a dew drop, a beautiful sunset...or some touching musical tones...or poems...beautiful loving eyes...words of wisdom



Much Love

Karima
What a beautiful picture, Karima. When we are here for each other, then we fulfill the commandment of love.

You take delight in beauty which reflects you. You have mentioned beautiful loving eyes ... this is soul touching, soul communication .... wow, this reminds me of a poem by Tim "Soul touching". Must see if I can find it.

Be fine, my friend!
I love you. Margherita
Found it on chopra: Tim Cannon's poem

"Soul touching"


Together,
Yet absent of form,
Your presence,
It illuminates,
As an aura,
Images a flame,
It surrounds,
And enters my heart.
Soul touching,
Each other,
Releasing,
To one another,
Our spirits,
Unite,
Ascend in eternity,
As a fragrant essence,
Unseen,
Awakening,
All senses within,
Heaven is this tender love.

Always can we be with another, whether it is our creator, a friend or companion, a loved one that has passed on;
Through soul touching you can feel the presence, just close your eyes…

I’m open to love
my heart invites you to dance
come share my delight


senryu by Margherita
Thank you Lilie, Margherita and Tim.
You touch me deeply with your grace and beauty.

Soon I am going to leave the fields of snow
and dip into the waters of a warmer place.

May the Hawaiian Goddess Laka embrace you with love and light.
****************

O Goddess Laka!
O wildwood bouquet, O Laka!
O Laka, queen of the voice!
O Laka, giver of gifts!
O Laka, giver of bounty!
O Laka, giver of all things!

Hawaiian prayer to the Goddess laka

And in Italy we say: Quando non c'è il gatto, i topi ballano ... exact translation. Today this was not the case ... a busy day back at work, like you dear Lilie ...
but I wish Inda a wonderful time in Hawaii!
Tired now.
Hugging you all and going to sleep ... hmmm DREAM ...

Love, Margherita Smile

I’m open to love
my heart invites you to dance
come share my delight

Island dreams by Jim Warren

Thinking of Inda on the island ... sending her love.

Dear Karima, yes we do need to rest, to sit with a book, to think, just to BE.


Another senryu for you:


Today we shall rest
to absorb beauty and light:
to just love our life


Hugs. Margherita Smile

Haiku is a Japanese verse form that relies on brevity and simplicity to convey its message. It is usually three lines of five, seven, and five syllables, and frequently includes natural images or themes. It is believed to have been first written in the seventeenth century and is based on a Zen Buddhist philosophy of simplicity and the idea of perfection that excludes the extraneous.


This is the very brief explanation of haiku on www.poetry.com where they run a daily contest of haikus. I participate quite often and I have once won the mousepad with a haiku I submitted (it's a question of luck though, hundreds and hundreds of senryus/haikus are sent everyday, but it's fun!). With the following senryu (they actually call haiku everything, even if to be called a haiku, there must be a seasonal element in the verse - all other compositions are called senryu):

Life flows placidly
we have the choice to be free
to cry or to laugh




Have a beautiful Sunday, dear Karima.
Love and light. Margherita
