When six birds became one angel

birds flying over body of water during golden hour

One flew down to earth contemplating the safetiness of the mountains;

one flew down to water contemplating the infinite waves;

one flew up towards the sun feeling it’s strenght and bravery;

one flew up to air feeling a kind and loving breeze, singing softly;

one flew up into a bright light beyond the sunrise;

the last bird flew up beyond the sky limits singing: I am Free.., and spreading it’s golden dust upon earth..

When this last bird accomplished this, the other ones flew into his direction and they became One bright light revealed in the most peaceful and eternal melody.

The Journey must go on

If i climb the mountain and don’t look down, if i look at the light in the horizon,

If i pray to God to not leave me alone, if i carry on even if my legs are still fragile,

If the sun gives me the courage and energy to go on, if my heart is filled with love and peace,

I will reborn on the top of that mountain again, looking down gratefuly and sending my humble love to the world..

Storms and bitter winds will pass, as anything else in this world. Remain calm, fearless,  humble and trust in God, he will give you the strength.

Keep on climbing…

Northern lights

and northern wishes…

A Northern light:

for the lives that were born, for the lives that were lost;

for the trees that fell, for the flowers that bloomed;

for the stars that shone, for the falling stars;

for all the seeds planted and the fruits harvested,

for the ones who fell in love and for the ones who let go,

for the ones who seeked, and the ones who found..

Light a candle for hope and love..

M.L.

“Uma aurora boreal:

pelas vidas que nasceram; pelas vidas que se perderam;

pelas árvores que caíram, pelas flores que floresceram;

pelas estrelas que brilharam, pelas estrelas que caíram;

por todas as sementes plantadas e todos os frutos colhidos,

pelos que se apaixonaram e pelos que terminaram,

pelos que procuraram e pelos que encontraram..

Acende uma vela pela esperanca e pelo amor.

Somos todos seres da Natureza, vimos e vamos.

A minha mae foi uma pessoa linda, não só por fora, mas por dentro também. A alma dela sempre irradiou luz, amor e um carinho bondoso de mae.

Na sua vida, ela foi atormentada por sombras e muito sofrimento, mas teve sempre o amor da sua família a tentar puxar-lhe de volta para a luz da vida. A luz que víamos no seu olhar e sorriso lindo quando lhe demonstrávamos o nosso amor e afeição.

A nossa vida ensinou-nos a semear e colher mais amor do que bens materiais. O seu amor por nós e o nosso por ela uniu-nos como família, nas alegrias e tristezas.

A sua alma já nos deixou, Livre e Leve, na Paz e Amor eterno; na Graca de Deus. Uma estrela no céu que nos ilumina, um anjinho que nos guarda e nos vigia.

Querida mae: serás para sempre invencível, indestrutível; para além da vida e da morte; para além da alegria e da dor; para além do karma e da forma. Amen

We are all beings of Nature, we come and go.
My mother was a beautiful person, not only from the outside but also from the inside. Her soul always radiated light, love and a loving kindness of a mother.

In her life she was plagued by shadows and much suffering, but she always had the love of her family trying to pull her back into the light of life. The light we saw in her look and beautiful smile when we showed her our love and affection.

Our life has taught us to sow and reap more love than material goods. Her love for us and ours for her united us as family, in joys and sorrows.

Her soul has already left us, Free, in Peace, and eternal Love, by the Grace of God. A star in the sky that illuminates us, an angel who guards and watches over us. 

Dear mother: you will be forever invincible, indestructible; beyond life and death; beyond joy and pain; beyond karma and form. Amen

What is being an artist?

Photo by Pixabay on pexels.com

Genuine artists express their feelings authentically. Later on, the urge to share their gift, by giving and inspire others grows in their hearts.

They create with a humble attitude without second intentions or too high expectations. Recognition is good, but it should not be the final goal. They know One single feedback is precious: that is how they are remembered in someones life for a long time, if they influence positively that one single person.

Light your spark: keep on singing, dancing, painting, writing, making someone laugh, cooking that special meal, teaching, helping people, whatever is your art..you do with love and passion, that makes you feel whole and healed.

Don’t wait for the whole world out there to accept you to move on with your art. You will inspire the ones that need to be inspired, while sharing a feeling, thought and a light when they need the most. That is how the Universe “works”. Have you ever felt that before with one single melody that touches your heart? Seems like that song was specially writen for you!

And finally, the most important is that you should create to express yourself and not with the intention to please everybody. Since we are different in the way we don’t listen to the same songs, read the same kind of books or watch the same shows, you can’t please everybody with your art. It is natural that not everyone will understand it and likewise support it.

Create to spread your light and love. No fortune, fame can replace the joy and love you earn back by touching someone’s heart deeply and purely. And remember to stay true to yourself.

That is for me what means to be a genuine artist..

A mother’s contemplation

photo on pixabay, pexels.com

I have heard before that a mother’s love to their child is unconditional.

Maybe that is the reason why i can’t describe it. Believe me i’ve tried it before, to write a poem, a description, but the words don’t flow naturally.

It’s incredible that the most overwhelming love i am experiencing is extremely hard to put into words. It’s truly beyond all of them.

What i can write about is that, through all my dotters phases since she was newborn i have been feeling and experiencing a roller coaster of emotions that i didn’t even knew it existed in me: good and bad!

She has the ability to make my hair grow gray only for worrying.. to want to yell at a pillow when she cries endlessly or is having her crisis.. to make my breath and my heart stop while i get scared she is going to fall or hit a table, to make me feel like the queen of cleaning..but to make my heart literally melt when i look at her sleeping.

It doesn’t matter how chaotic, frustrating, the day has been as somedays are.. When i see her sleeping I forget about what the day brought and am so GRATEFUL for having her in my life.

God blessed me with such a precious gift in my life..

Echoing melodies

Where are you? I can’t hear..

abstract art artistic blur

He sang a song deeply from his heart

from so far away,

but she could hear him in her mind

so close that she could almost touch his face again.

She singed back to him,

She knew he could hear her too.

“Where are you? I can’t hear”..

She could not hear him anymore.

Their melody began to reach the emptiness,

but she will always remember

the moment they sang the same song

above any poem, through a misterious melody,

with the ultimate bond, spiritually

She wished to hear his voice again

wherever she would go,

But their song had been whispered towards silence,

and their lights began to fade

as ice diamonds melting in the spring..

photo by M.L., Arvidsjaur, an old one (2013/2014)

Their frozen hearts turned into stars,

shining apart in the darkest skies,

though bonded for all eternity,

with a hidden melody, echoing through infinity.

p.s. this poem is specially dedicated to my best friend and sister, D..

Little sys, i admire your strength and i support you ❤ : It’s your time to expand even if it hurts right now. You will be alright..

Diamonds in the snow

What doesn’t freeze me, makes me stronger.. ;p

Today i felt a “call from nature”. I decided to stop with the excuses that it is too cold (10 below zero), took my warmer clothes and shoes, ready to go out.

It’s been a long time i don’t take a walk in the forest. And even with all frozen lakes, plants, silence, because there are so few birds now, i saw a shade of beauty, of divine..

Moments like this makes me feel alive, inspired, strong, ready for fight again. Ready to handle this winter blues with a new strength..

I may not be strong enough to walk on ice right now, but i will be strong enough to defeat these winter blues symptoms ;p.. After all i have been through in my life, this is the least i expect from myself.

This is some photos i took in my morning walk here in Arvidsjaur. Hope you enjoy it as much as i do 😉

We are human

 

We fall and rise..

Arvidsjaur, spring 2018, by M.L.

 

We make mistakes and learn

We teach , predict,

when nobody understands

we fall as shooting stars.

We rise and shine again

ready to spread our wisdom

with a reborn strength.

We are human

learning to live

not ready to meet darkness

not allways ready to leave

we are human searching for hope,

through all the imperfections

we can’t see it all the time..

and when we finally do,

we glow again as the light of the sun

spreading warm, joy and love

after all..we are only human, for now..

Not every day the sun shines, and when it Finally does, just enjoy it 🌞

Namaste ❤
