I am reminded of Spring
By little roses

Door Haiku

I always prefer
Of the two sides of a door
Inside looking out...

O meu amigo Gordo... My friend Gordo...



"And how do you know that you're mad?"

"To begin with," the Cat said, "a dog's not mad. You grant that?"

"I suppose so," said Alice.

"Well then," the Cat went on, "you see a dog growls when it's angry, and wags its tail when it's pleased. Now I growl when I'm pleased, and wag my tail when I'm angry. Therefore I'm mad."

Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

A LDG (13 de Abril, 1914 - 20 de Fevereiro, 2005)



Do not stand on my grave and weep;
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn's rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in the circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

Hoje, antes da chuva... Today, before the rain...



Like a meteor, like darkness, as a flickering lamp,
An illusion, like hoar-frost or a bubble,
Like clouds, a flash of lightning, or a dream:
So is all conditioned existence to be seen.
Buddha (The Diamond Sutra)

Rainbow today...


bridge of light so bright
that the oceans cross in flight
rainbow clears my sight

Respondendo ao desafio de M.P.


"Cada bloguista participante tem de enumerar cinco manias suas, hábitos muito pessoais que os diferenciem do comum dos mortais. E além de dar ao público conhecimento dessas particularidades, tem de escolher cinco outros bloguistas para entrarem, igualmente, no jogo, não se esquecendo de deixar nos respectivos blogues aviso do "recrutamento". Além disso, cada participante deve reproduzir este "regulamento" no seu blogue."

Cinco manias:

1. Rolos de papel fixos na horizontal (higiénico e de cozinha) têm que ter as folhas viradas de lá para cá.
2. Cabides e roupa pendurada têm que estar todos virados para o mesmo lado: ESQUERDA!
3. Casa bem cheirosa e arejada.
4. Material de escrita em quantidade: canetas, lápis e blocos de apontamentos.
5. Óculos escuros e jeans.

P.S. Embora o possa parecer, nem tenho a mania das arrumações nem sou obcessiva-compulsiva. Mas tenho mais manias…

Risco... Risk...


RiskRisco

And then the day came,
E chegou o dia
when the risk em que o risco
to remain tight de permanecer fechada,
in a bud num botão,
was more painful era mais doloroso
than the risk que o risco
it took
necessário

to Blossom. para Florir.
