Something very Beautiful

There is something very beautiful with an old couple … growing old together! This is something I have always liked and every time I see a couple like this i feel so much warmth in my heart. I am thinking about old couples – relatives of mine … I really admire men and women who values the lifelong marriage together and find it worth struggling for.

Imagine … growing old together … a life long journey together … so special and so beautiful ❤

This lovely couple is looking at the Opera House in Budapest. I guess they are thinking about special memories connected to happenings in this fantastic building.

A beautiful old couple in Budapest.

We have a dream

I went to Lund Art Hall today because I wanted to see the photo exhibition ”We have a dream”. Wonderful photo portraits all of them. Only one I didn’t like and also didn’t understan why it was there. I will tell you in the end of my post about this.

It was strong feelings when reading about these fantastic humans. So strong I couldn’t see and read about all of them so I must go back another day. Actually I often go to the Art Hall.

culture in life
feelings in every cell – strong
soul of human art

So strong women!
I remember when I first heard about the yazidi women and how they were treated I wrote a poem …

sisters holding hands
were brutally torn apart
the cold knife spoke death

… after reading this.


When I saw Jan Eliasson 2nd in UN I thought he should be changed …. and that Anders Kompass should be there in his place! Anders Kompass did a great thing for the abused children – abused by UN soldiers. Jan E didn’s stand up for Anders K or for the children!
What has Jan Eliasson done except being true to his political party in Sweden!!!!


 

 

Waterfall of Questions

I sat on the bench …. like so many other enjoying the sun … leaning my back on the Cathedral wall. Sometimes closing my eye to feel the sun in my face … even stronger … sometimes I watched people passing by … crossing the square … and I saw you …

a middle age couple
though looking older – facing
different ways

… you … the woman … covered up in clothes and veil … looking forward … eyes in walk direction … not at us  … and … your man … beside … looking att us … all the way while walking … watching us … sitting on the bench … in clothes we have chosen ourselves … and with our hair free for the sun and the wind … some with boyfriends … some with girlfriends … and me just alone …

my thoughts
about your thoughts – two
patterns of life requirements

… requirement by yourself, by somebody else or by something else … like culture, religion, or what so ever …

– What were you – veiled woman – thinking? I wondered.
– What did you think about your man looking at … and so interested in us?
Maybe you thought about us as ‘hores’ … I know some do … both men and women … no that is not what I am curious about … giving other people etikettes … that’s low …
I am curious about what you really was thinking … about … our different terms of life styles … the free and the one with many requirements … and having a man obviously interested in other women …

why stand up
for a man interested in other – women
in unveiled eyes

… probably your are … not free … to talk about … what you fell and think …

Life  conditions are so different!

I would never stand with a man … thinking he could tell me … how to live my life!

Never!

Hot Passion

Some fun ends … and some fun goes on … and most I love … is  … the tango… with you … soon to take place again. I love it! Passion and close bodies!
In control!

determined legs
yours – and mine capturing
your insistent moves

You will also give classes this week. So many dancers will be there. Me too – though shooting. Oh how I have looked forward to this. Only once before I have been to the dance studio to shoot photos. Now I will again. Soon!

I like to say to everybody – go and take classes in tango!

like a flower
bursting out promising – spring
for hot passion

And then comes the summer … best of all … best of everything … now ahead … soon …

The Hunter Philosophy

Sometimes … when I read poetry … out there … well here too … I think … POETRY SHOULD HAVE A PLACE IN EVERY SCHOOL … I have always advocated for philosophy as a base subject.


The more technic take place – in our life – the more philosophy we need … is my mantra.


I still believe that!

Poetry … inspire for interpretations … challenge the readers in many ways … explore feelings … other persons feelings … helps to change perspective … may strengthen ability for empathy … most needed in the harsh sometimes very hostile social world … not to forget in social medias …

How romantic and safe wasn’t my life as young … now it seems to be the opposite for young people. Even when it comes to equality between girls and boys. It’s worse now and this is so sad.

Is it about hunting or beeing hunted. As young I loved beeing hunted by boys. It was so innocent and so beautiful. Exploring each other in a way. Life schooling for relations and love.
At the same time I knew more about boys than girls because for me it was much more interesting being with boys than girls. Climbing trees, playing football, sneaking in to other gardens picking fruits … and I was very good at slingshots … playing with dolls wasn’t my kind at all, not girls ‘backtalking’ either. I like the straight … and I found boys much more straight. Always have.
I am still amazed that my parents let me be my personality. My dad bought me football boots with studs. He went to every basket game I played in. My mother sewed jeans and caps for me mostly.  Sometimes also dresses – me and my sisters – looking so nice in same cloth. My mother even sew dresses to the princesses of Sweden before her marriage.

Mina gamla klänningar som mamma sytt

Dresses I have saved with much love. Dresses my granddaughters also have used.


I’m … writing my thinking … that’s why it takes some odd ways … and I like that. That’s being alive … lively …thinking … about the tiny and great … close and far away …

Back to where I started thinking today ….Inspired by … The Hunter tanka … I respond …

I’m also out hunting
dressed in philosophy
and questions
my belt has many pockets
one secret – only for you
