“If you feel lost, disappointed, hesitant, or weak, return to yourself, to who you are,
here and now and when you get there, you will discover yourself, like a lotus flower in full bloom,
even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong.”

~ Masaru Emoto - Secret Life of Water

Good Morning, Book Loving Friends... Image

No doubt in Holland,
when van Gogh was a boy,
there were swans drifting
over the green sea
of the meadows, and no doubt
on some warm afternoon
he lay down and watched them,
and almost thought: this is everything.
What drove him
to get up and look further
is what saves this world,
even as it breaks
the hearts of men.

~ Mary Oliver, from “Everything,” House of Light




Image


What we must do,
I suppose,
is to hope the world keeps its balance;

what we are to do, however,
with out hearts
waiting and watching - truly
I don't know.

~ Mary Oliver




Image


Does that girl,
eyes like flowers, gathering flowers
from pools for her garlands, driving away the parrots
from the millet fields,
does that girl know at all
or doesn’t she,
that my heart is still there with her?

~ Kapilar, excerpt of Kur 142




Image


But spring is mine.
In the heat trapped between our cupped palms,
I hold every spring on earth.

~ Dulce María Loynaz

Hope you have a beautiful day, canims. Stay safe! hugsmle tdaisy

This is the most beautifully filmed video of grass blowing in the wind that I think I’ve ever seen - BUT the sounds from the highway next to it ruin it. So sad... sadmavi

Hi dears
Hope you are all fine. battlecry

Seems that we have to come along with this Corona virus spinsmiley can't imagine how far we can maintain this way. deprosmiley I missed my previous life, orageodesespoir Anyway we have to sustain and make our self strong and be hopeful [default_yoga-smiley.gif]

Yesterday I heard a song from Emel Mathlouthi named Holm (A Dream) the voice of Emel is amazing and strong. Loved this song and I'm repeatedly listening it. I couldn't find a subtitled version but I'll put the lyrics here.



The melody belongs to an Iranian composer Anushiravan Ruhani. The name of the original song is "Soltane ghalbha" means the king of hearts and It was played more than 50 years ago in an Iraninan film.



A new performance of Aref and leyla (Iranian singers)

Hi canim tcupid tcupid
Here the Arabic lines with phonetic and English translation heartshower

لو كنت نغمّض عينيّا
la konto ghamez aynaya
If I could close my eyes

و تاخذني الأحلام من يديّا
takhezni ahlam men aydiya
And the dreams take me by the hand


و نعلى و نحلّق في سماء جديدة
nala ve nahlegh fi sema jadide
I would rise and fly in a new sky


و ننسى الوجايع ،
nense vejaya
And I will forget my sorrows

لو كنت نسافر في خيالي
la konte nesafer fi khiyali
If I could travel in my imagination

نزرع و نبني قصور ليالي
nezre ve nebbi ghusuro liyali
I would build palaces and nights


يكبر فيها الحب و آمالي
ekber fiha hob ve amali
Where love and my hopes can grow

و نمحي الآلام
nemhi alam
And we will erase the pain


دنيا ترى فيها ملامح ناس
donya tera fiha mameh nas
A world in which you see people

قوسها الظلم و البؤس و القهر
gosa zolmo o alboso ve alghahr
Features are clouded by oppression, misery and suffering

من واقع عاسر يعبث بكلّ ما نبنيه
From a bitter reality that destroys everything we build

دنيا علت فيها أسوار طغيان
A world where you see rising walls of tyranny

سحق فينا أحلاما أحلامْ
That crushes in us dreams and dreams

و عمّ الظّلام و الأنانيّة في كل القلوب
And reign darkness and in all hearts


Amel is named the voice of Tunes for the Arabic revolution. Here she is in the crowd starting to sing
