De prin liceu adunate - poeme uitate

In caz ca nu stiai inca umbla vorba in targ despre o noua traditie. Conform acesteia in fiecare an la 21 Martie de Ziua Internationala a Poeziei are loc miscarea globala "Plateste cu Poezie". Cei de la Julius Meinl au lansat in urma cu 4 ani o campanie minunata prin care o data pe an, timp de o zi, platesti cafeaua cu o poezie in locatiile partenere.


Astazi am aflat ca aceasta frumoasa campanie a aparut chiar la noi in tara.
Pentru prima data, pe 25 octombrie 2013, consumatorii din toata tara au platit cu poezie in 80 de locaţii Julius Meinl si au strans in total 6.300 de poezii.
Urmatorul an, de Ziua Internationala a Poeziei, s-au scris nici mai mult, nici mai putin de 15.365 poezii in cele 150 de cafenele Julius Meinl participante din două tari – Romania si Croatia.
Anul 2015 a adus si lansarea globala a campaniei in peste 1.100 de locatii partenere Julius Meinl, in 27 de tari, pe patru continente, fiind scrise peste 100.000 de poezii.
Anul trecut numarul de tari in care a avut loc campania a crescut la 34.


Saptamana viitoare, pe 21 Martie, poti avea si tu parte de experienta de a primi cafea sau ceai in schimbul unor versuri, chiar de Ziua Internationala a Poeziei.
Vezi AICI cea mai apropiata cafenea partenera si poti incepe sa scrii versuri inca de pe-acum.


Cu aceasta ocazie am calatorit in timp si am scormonit prin biblioteca dupa cateva poezii publicate in revista liceului, pe care le impartasesc cu voi mai jos.


 "Eclipsa"

Moment,
O clipa de-asta data sparta
De ganduri impanzind lumina toata
Ramane-n ceruri ca o pata.

Al vietii
Rob sunt si in cant o spun:
De va sa vie, vie-acum
Noian de negura si fum.

Soare-nselator
Imi impanzeste cautarea
Deasupra-i cer, in fata-i marea,
Sunt ametit si-mi pierd rabdarea.

Eu vreau
Dintr-un moment in alt
Sa nu ma las, sa fac un salt,
S-ating inaltul cel inalt.


"In iarna unui vis urat"

Taram al linistii nebune
De lumea-ntreaga suprimat,
De zgomote si de rafale
Alungat.

O mare-ntreaga de suspine
Ce valu-n stanca-si arunca,
In anotimpul cel ce vine
Ingheta.

Un geamat scurt si ascutit
Din pieptul unei ciocarlii,
Ce in inaltul amortit
Se zdrobi.

O floare sta in iarna grea,
In ger cumplit, de nepatruns
Toti fulgii ii plangeau soarta
La apus.

Intreg taram de fulgi si stea
Se prapadea-n pustietate,
Doar visul meu se repeta
Inc-o noapte.


"Ploaie"

E toamna.
Cioburi de-oglinda zboara-n nestire
Se-aduna, se raspandesc si apoi cad.
Cad in absurd, in nefiinta si tac.
Tacere robusta, indoliata de lucire.
Cerul tuna.
Tuna cu ploaie, ploaie de lut
Si-mi pare ca muntii se-ndoaie si plang.
Lacrimi de stanca rece si-un gand
Ma duce-n visare si uit.
E noapte.
Si-afara ploaia de stele nu a-ncetat
Pomii asteapta si luna se-ntreaba:
Ce e cu noaptea cea grea si neagra
Nimeni nu stie si vantu-a uitat.


Ce parere aveti despre aceasta campanie? Veti participa la Ziua Internationala a Poeziei anul acesta?

Daca esti in cautare de un serial nou sau o carte, arunca un ochi si peste Jumpin'Journal.
Vara se apropie cu pasi marunti dar siguri, ce-ai zice sa te conving cu 10 Motive pentru care ai alege Kefalonia?!

Jumpin'Journal - pages of a diary (IV)

It's been a long time since my last Jumpin'Journal post. Today I'll dive straight into some music, movie and book recommendations while "jumping" in pictures from different locations. Let's start.

Sinaia - Cota 2000(1,3) , West Park Ploiesti(2)

How much I love music biography documentaries: the combination of hard work, struggle and talent is hypnotizing. My favourites are:
3. Amy - the life of Amy Winehouse struggling between drug problems, love triangles and childhood problems, a talent that we lost too soon.
2. Get On Up - the life of James Brown overcoming his poor childhood, a dismembered family and later drug and alchool addiction - a strict and driven man with a very clear vision, talent and passion.
1. La Môme(La Vie en Rose) - the life of the incredible Edith Piaf, a movie that makes me cry every time I watch it; Marion Cotillard is beyond amazing in this character - love, lost, tragedy, talent - a must see.

When it comes to music I am all the time searching for something new while the playlist on my phone slightly changes - I'm still listening to most of the same songs as I use to hear years ago.
Meanwhile I'm becoming a fan of the british singer Nao whose mix of electro and soul relaxes me - find more in my album review HERE!
Bruno Mars stole again the limelight with his latest hits collection intitled "24K MAGIC". While the first single with the same name reached number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, the second one, "That's what I like", surpassed it and reaches number 3 on this week's chart. Bruno has it all in my opinion: the voice, the swag, the moves. Check out his Grammy performance below.



If you are a fan of TV series well then maybe we have some in common or I can recommend you couple of them. Lately I was absorbed by "Taboo" and "Vikings".
I absolutely adored the "Night Manager" mini serie with one of my favourite actors, Hugh Laurie (did you know he is also a singer?! - check out his blues album HERE!).


"The Night Manager" was nominated for 31 awards and has won twelve, including two Emmy Awards for director Susanne Bier and music composer Victor Reyes and three Golden Globes for Best Performance by an Actor for Tom Hiddleston, Best Performance for an Actress in a Supporting Role for Olivia Colman, and Best Performance for a Supporting Actor for Hugh Laurie.

Ploiesti(1), Suceava(2), Alexandru Ioan Cuza Park Bucharest(3)

When it comes to books I have to admit I read more in the past 3 months than I did in the last year. If you're in the mood for an easy yet interesting reading I recommend you "La disparition de Richard Taylor" by Arnaud Cathrine: On May 16, 1998 Richard Taylor disappears without a trace and without apparent reason. The book is a serie of testimonies of women in the life of Richard or of those that he meets in the years that follow his getaway. In the game of shadows and lights, we discover fragments of an existence of a man who grew up by the book, doing all that it was expected from him and that suddenly wakes up not knowing who he truly is or what he really wants.

Another book that got me hooked from the first page is "The Magus" by John Fowles.
"This daring literary thriller, rich with eroticism and suspense, is one of John Fowles's best-loved and bestselling novels and has contributed significantly to his international reputation as a writer of the first rank. At the center of The Magus is Nicholas Urfe, a young Englishman who accepts a teaching position on a remote Greek island, where he befriends a local millionaire. The friendship soon evolves into a deadly game in which reality and fantasy are deliberately manipulated, and Nicholas finds that he must fight not only for his sanity but for his very survival."(Goodreads) 

Cantacuzino Castle Busteni(1,2), Mt. Ainos Kefalonia Greece(3)

Right now I just started reading "The Road less traveled" by M. Scott Peck. This book is by now a classic in the field of psychology. Yet, it's written for a mainstream audience and goes through some of the basic tenets of psychological theory (e.g. attachment, individuation, boundaries, delayed gratification) but does so through the lense of spiritual growth. Peck is an excellent writer and fine therapist who is sensitive to the issues of spirituality.

Here is how the book starts:
"Life is difficult. This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths. It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth, we transcend it. Once we truly know that life is difficult--once we truly understand and accept it--then life is no longer difficult. Because once it is accepted, the fact that life is difficult no longer matters."
