Passion Fire

Filed under: poetry — looking4good @ 8:56 pm

The Creator’s pilot light flames eternally deep within me.

Mis-matches have struck against me.
Some have caused sparks or brief sputtering eruptions.
Some even burst into roaring bonfires.
Few have brushed down my mountains for years on end.

My soul has third degree burns from the third degree
I get when society asks me
Repeatedly …
“How’s your love life?”

Water evaporates when it hits these flames.
Thus, the rivers of tears cannot stop the burning.
And lately … I cannot cry for long.

Yet, peace be still …
The Flame simmers eternally within me and
Expectation licks at these lips in anticipation of the Passion to come.

un poco de niño

Filed under: Uncategorized — looking4good @ 6:03 pm

Voy a citarme la seriedad,
y te voy a comprar un helado,
me voy a sentar en la calle,
y voy a jugar a gritar sin sentido,
me diran loco,
me llamaran extraño,
me mandaran a callar,
pero creo que no lo puedo evitar.
Voy a empezar a ser niño,
jugare con mis juguetes,
viajare en mi nave interplanetaria,
llegare a tocar la luna,
y traere queso para mis ratones.
Sere de chocolate,
y buscare comerme unas fresas,
saltare una cama,
brincare un costal,
subire a tu espalda y me llevaras a caminar,
subiras a la mia, y te llevare a volar,
y tendre un par de marcadores,
para pintar en las paredes que quiera,
y de nuevo, dormire como duere un niño,
en un mundo imaginario
bajo un arbol de manzanas
para comer una diaria,
antes de que me duela la panza.

Know What You Want…

Filed under: Inspirational — looking4good @ 12:29 pm

MASA sangat berharga..the time is so precious!

Always pay attention and know what you want-you just might get it,otherwise you are doomed to get what you worry about – that one which you do not want.

The best communicators and the most persuasive presenters know exactly what they want to say and how they want to impact their audience.If they want you to laugh they tell a good joke, if they want you to listen up they might speak more softly or even pause and use silence to capture your attention.And if they want to feel relaxed and confident for a big event they prepare diligently in advance of the big day.

Be highly specific about your intentions and you will find the steps to take you where you want to go.Your steps to success are actually out there – you just have to find the way and find your gold.

Laozi

Filed under: Uncategorized — looking4good @ 4:36 am

Wise men don’t need to prove their point;
men who need to prove their point aren’t wise.
The Master has no possessions.
The more he does for others, the happier he is.
The more he gives to others, the wealthier he is.
The Tao nourishes by not forcing.
By not dominating, the Master leads.”

Laozi Chapter 81


I have always been very fond of the Laozi and its teachings. One could spend a lifetime studying a single section of the vast Taoist poem and come up with something new every day. I think we can all learn something from this passage in particular.

It is often those that try to convince you of their truth with the most vigor that are lost. Those that have the truth show it with their actions, not their words. Those with truth allow the results of their wisdom to speak for them. Those that remain deaf after such a display are often the same ones who spend their time doing nothing but talking of their virtue.

 

Vesperal – António Sardinha

Olaia em céu azul

Se eu te pintasse, posta na tardinha,
pintava-te num fundo cor de olaia,
na mão suspensa, nessa mão que é minha,
o lenço fino acompanhando a saia!

Vejo-te assim, ó asa de andorinha,
em ar de infanta que perdeu a aia,
envolta numa luz que te acarinha,
na luz que desfalece e que desmaia!

Com teu encanto os dias me adamasques,
linda menina ingénua de Velásquez
a flutuar num mar de seda e renda.

Deixa cair dos lábios de medronho
a perfumada voz do nosso sonho,
mas tão baixinho que só eu entenda.

António Maria de Sousa Sardinha (n. em Monforte, Alentejo a 9 Set 1887; m. em Elvas a 10 Jan de 1925)
