POEMS: “Shinto” by Jorge Luis Borges

When misfortune confounds usin an instant we are savedby the humblest actionsof memory or attention:the taste of fruit, the taste of water,that face returned to us in dream,the first jasmine flowers of November,the infinite yearning of the compass,a book we thought forever lost,the pulsing of a hexameter,the little key that opens a house,the smell of…

POEMS: “A plain life” by William H. Davies

  A Plain Life No idle gold — since this fine sun, my friend, Is no mean miser, but doth freely spend. No prescious stones — since these green mornings show, Without a charge, their pearls where’er I go. No lifeless books — since birds with their sweet tongues Will read aloud to me their…

A quote on “unspeakable perfect miracles” by Walt Whitman

To me, every hour of the light and dark is a miracle, Every cubic inch of space is a miracle, Every square yard of the surface of the earth is spread with the same, Every foot of the interior swarms with the same; Every spear of grass – the frames, limbs, organs, of men and…

POEMS: “Days too short” by William H. Davies

MYSTICAL POEMS: “Bliss” by May Sarton

Bliss   In the middle of the night, My bedroom washed in moonlight And outside The faint hush-husing Of an ebbing tide, I see Venus Close to The waning moon. I hear the bubbling hoot Of a playful owl. Pierrot’s purrs Ripple under my hand, And all this is bathed In the scent of roses…

NATURE POEMS: “The clematis flower” by Amira (La flor de clemátide)

The clematis flower Delicate little tendrils, like soft hands Reaching up as if in prayer, up and up they expand Searching  for the light…   They sense their path, they have foresight Their inner compass is their guidance While they grow in silence   Until they reach the perfect height To blossom like open hearts…
