Actually few perfect days with loving people that I miss here. 🙂 Complete this sentence: My favorite place in the whole world….. When I was a child it was my grandma’s house. Behind the house was big yard and when I was little girl, I liked to imagine that there were magical fairies or fairy-like creatures who lived in the greenery and flowers. My grandma made up together with me stories and I was happy smiling and pretending ability to perform magic.

Translate

English is the most universal language. I know English well enough to communicate, but to write poetry is hard, to find beautiful words to express thoughts and feelings, when poetry is written in a foreign language is like you translate your thoughts. I have some poetry here translated in English. And I wrote some haiku in English, fun with creative writing using another language. The language of poetry is rich and finest expresses feelings, emotions, art of literature. Sometimes there are no perfect word equivalents between languages. Poetry is neither just words, nor just metre. Literal translations do not make a poem, rhythm, sound, images, obvious meaning and implied meaning, can never be the same after translation. one word prompt Translate

Conventional Wisdom

The myth of the suffering artist and Black & White photo art. I don’t believe that you have to suffer in order to create real art. I think not every B&W photo is art. They are not instantly artistic. The myth of extra-special suffering just for artists, “it’s not real art unless you suffer”. Sensitive people are often quite creative, creative people glorify pain in creative way through dark times and painful moments. But artist isn’t always suffering, also experiences positive emotions as deeply as does negative ones. In fact, without effort, artist create artworks, because the artist is an artist and it is just part of nature, artistic ability in creative way to express themselves and find personal fulfillment, connect with others and the courage to share their visions. Creativity has a rhythm that flows, sensitivity mental and emotional can be both a blessing and a curse, can make life more difficult, but is also a gift. To a highly sensitive people the world may appear to be more dramatic and tragic, but also …

Marigolds

Marigolds are beautiful, strong smelling herbaceous flowers in the sunflower family. Most of the marigolds have pungent, piquant, peppery, spicy odor. Modern hybrids have been developed to minimize that characteristic marigold scent. But gardeners love the ones that have that strong marigold scent you may remember from Grandma’s garden. Fall and late Autumn are a great time for saving flower seeds. Collect the dried marigold flowers, carefully open the marigold seed pods, separate seeds and spread them on the paper towel. Put the seeds in a paper envelope and store them in a cool, dark place. They like lots of sun and can be planted out as soon as the danger of frost has past. Plants produce bright flowers and maintain their vigor until late in fall, fancy pretty cheerful petals and delicately scalloped leaves. Marigold, beautiful saffron color and piquant smell  🙂 Some people can’t abide the smell of marigolds.
