Treasure hunting for the crown’s jewels

The crown’s jewels

To me, the sea, mountains & its creatures living on premises are the crown’s jewels & when we go out there, I like hunting with my loved ones bringing back a testimony to share with all of you the extraordinary every day miracles of a planet we tend to take for granted because we have it & see it on a daily basis.
I’ve got a collection of seventeen photos which I carefully selected including some of the every day occurrence to put you in the ambiance of the unusually sunny, windless shores two days ago!
I hope you’ll enjoy this post too 🙂

Wriggling vegetable worm?

As we were taking a stroll in a park on a wonderfully peaceful rainy day where scent, mist & hue mingle, I came across this weird looking leaf which appeared to be on the move 😉
I took a few with different shapes, colors & composed a setting nearby to try & bring out to the eyes of my viewers, its tones & curves.
Anyone out there with a name for this vegetable-worm?

As a Jack in the box spring
Just popped out of a winter
Never begun not wanting to
Be forgotten fighting for
Its place in the kingdom
Of seasons…

It was so good today to imbrue
In nature feel our footstep
Sink in soft soaked soil
Covered with the tree’s
Fallen festoons and pick
The fruit of its labor…

Ascoltare e scrivere (Poem written in t(h)ree languages…English, Italian & French)

“Ascoltare e ripetere” is something I have heard very often twenty five years ago in my three years of Italian language studies. This poem was probably lying in my subconscious because the first words that popped into my minds for this poem was Ascoltare e scrivere which was not far from the classical audio tape’s repetitive phrase… as a result, it’s the first time I’m writing a poem in three languages. I hope the Italian version is correct, it took me some time to polish it 🙂
Let me know!

Fallen leaf
———

Listen & write the
Emotions that makes
The beating of your
Heart the quiver of
Your body as the
Fallen leaf from
The tree sinking
Back to earth in
Perpetual renaissance.
————–

Foglia caduta
————

Ascoltare e scrivere
Le emozioni che rende
Il battito del tuo
Cuore la faretra
Del tuo corpo come
La foglia caduta
Dall’albero naufragio
Di nuovo a terra in
Una rinascita perpetua
————-

Feuille tombée
————-

Ecouter et écrire
Les émotions qui
Produisent le
battement de ton
Coeur le frémissement
De ton corps comme
La feuille tombée
De l’arbre faisant
Naufrage vers la
Terre dans une
Renaissance perpetuelle
