Street art

Aveiro – Portugal

Campos de Aveiro,
Manchas verdes de arroz,
E a vela dum barco moliceiro,
Que um pirata ali pôs.
A servir de moldura
O velho mar cansado;
E o céu alto a descer e a ter fundura
Na quilha dum arado.

Art is everywhere!

Reprise

I have my own rules, so street art comes on Sunday. Don’t ask me why. It’s just the way it is. Some rules are made to be broken. And this one is one of them. I couldn’t wait! The week has been long and exhausting. I was counting the minutes to get home. Literally. And then… I saw it!
A huge wall painted with colourful flowers and fearless animals. Who could have guessed? In a parking lot. Yes, in the garden supply store car park. And I don’t even have a house with a garden. I live in an apartment with a tiny little balcony. I presume my eyes (well, my left eye) was meant to see this beauty just before the week ends.
I must thank my son because every Friday he goes to kayak and I pick him up before the sun sets. Usually, the meeting place is at the beach but this time I found myself at this empty parking.
I’m blessed and grateful. Open your eyes. Seize the day. Always.

Fields of gold

Reprise

Rolling over the hill
Spinning around
Again and again
Bountiful harvest
Sore hands
Happy faces
Blissful landcsape
Children running
And laughing out loud
Chasing the dogs
And counting the cows.

Une église, une chapelle
Un château du XVIème siècle
Un manoir, un jardin, des caves à vin
Et une impressionnante forteresse souterraine
Le « château sous le château »
Date du XIème siècle et mérite une visite.

Purple or violet?

The violets in the mountains have broken the rocks.

Tennessee Williams

Don’t order any black things. (…) Wear violet and purple.

George Bernard Shaw

I don’t have a purple problem, I have a purple passion!

Jackie Harmon Sweeney

Be eccentric now. Don’t wait for old age to wear purple.

Perfect day

Don’t wait for the perfect moment
Take the moment
And make it perfect.

Street art

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.

Rabindranath Tagore

Clouds in the sky very much resembles the thoughts in our minds! Both changes perpetually from one second to another!

Street art

If it takes more than 5 minutes, it’s not graffiti.

Mint Serf

I laugh at the way some people think graffiti is all selfish tagging and vandalism. Thoughtful street art is like good fiction – it speaks out on behalf of everyone, for us all to see.

Em cacos

O meu corpo já curou quase todas as feridas
Mas a minha alma continua em sangue
Devastada
Fechada a sete chaves
Destruída
Perdida no turbilhão da vida
Desleixada
Sou memória do que fui
Derrotada
E uma miragem do que não serei
Dividida
O medo vagueia sozinho
E eu sigo a estrada.

Coup sur coup…

Reprise

J’ai jeté un coup d’oeil
Je n’osais pas le déranger
Après le coup de téléphone
Je l’ai posé la question
Sa réponse a eu l’effet d’un coup de poing
Autant vous dire
Que j’aurais préféré me guérir d’un coup de soleil
Juste ma peau serait abîmée
Il était si loin le coup de foudre
L’ amour dure trois jours
Tout d’un coup
Il change d’avis
Et il part d’un coup de vent
J’essaie de le persuader
Cela ne coûte rien de tenter le coup
Hélas…
Il est impulsif et agit souvent sur un coup de tête
Son comportement m’agace
D’un seul coup, je me rends compte
Que sa patisserie est restée sur la table
Alors, pour éviter le coup de barre
Je la mange, sans aucun regret.
