Autumn

Autumn

Colourful, bright adorable, who completed your mission as a life-giver.

Now you send the message of peace and recovery, a necessity from the expectation of the soul.

After summer’s wild affirmations when life and breath were gasping, follows a time for reflection, when we gather wisdom and tranquility.

In the glow of light’s limitation and low-energy mode, we handle metamorphosis to the best of our ability.

To See

Jakob spegel

The sensual in the eye’s mysteries, signals and draws complexity from within.
The message in the gazes is the body’s response, the brain’s interpretation of each and every one of us.
Feelings flowing through the purposeful momentum, it cannot hide its direction.
A way to communicate at a high level, what our inside wants and what it understands.
Vision is a wonderful tool, in an honest, true and real community.

Freedom

Freedom
You fly with the wind beyond infinity 
Under the wings breathe freedom 
To see you flying gives strength and courage
 In this quiet moment 
A gift you gave to me, to bring my dreams close 
And to teach the beauty of the freedom

Dazzled

Dazzled by old feelings, I searched in the darkness for a glimmer of light.
Like a blind woman, listening, trying, I created an image of reality.
A beautiful, colourful, bubbling healthy dream, just the way only an illusion can be.
It does not exist and does not physically touch me, but still so close.
In a sudden awakening, I question my dream.
The beautiful path troubled me, almost led me astray. Rays of light briefly lightened up the sky, a comet entering the atmosphere.
It sparked an interest but it died as soon as it appeared.
Away from the unreal, I understand my heart’s fire.
I look up at the starry sky and now I see clearly that dimension of life.

Bländad

Bländad av känslor från förr, trevade jag fram i mörkret mot en strimma ljus.
Likt en blind, aktivt lyssnande, tolkande, skapade jag en bild av verkligheten.
En vacker, färgrik, porlande frisk dröm, så som bara en illusion kan vara.
Den existerar inte och berör mig inte fysiskt, men är ändå så närvarande.
I ett plötsligt uppvaknande ifrågasätter jag min dröm.
Besväras över den vackra stigen, som så nära lett mig på villovägar. Strimman av ljus lyste tillfälligt upp himlavalvet, en komets inträdande i atmosfären.
Skapade fascination, men slocknar sedan lika fort som den uppenbarat sig.
På avstånd från det overkliga förstår jag mitt hjärtas brand.
Jag tittar upp mot stjärnhimlen och den dimension av livet jag istället tydligt ser.

Do you watch, or do you see?

 

The drops is hiding in the rain, but the rain sees the drops.

The colours is hiding in the rainbow, but the rainbow sees the colours.

The tree are hiding in the forest, but the forest sees the tree.

The word is hiding in the language, but the language sees the word.

So, how is it with you? Do you watch, or do you see?

For the love of Dragonflies and Damselflies

The logo for the blog Blue Think Dive is a damselfly, the beautiful demoiselle (Calopteryx virgo), petite libellule bleue in French. This image was chosen partly because of the intense blue colour, which was perfect considering the name of the blog but also because of a deep fascination with damselflies and dragonflies.

These remarkable insects has been hovering across our planet for the past 325m years and sadly many of these ancient insects are threatened by extinction. Loss of wetland habits, insecticides as well as pesticides threatens these beautiful creatures that has inspired artists in many different ways –  jewellery, pottery and poems.

Dragonflies and damselflies are key indicators of the quality of water and wetland habitats. They spend much of their lives underwater as nymphs, larva. The life as a winged adult can be very short, a couple of weeks, even though some larger species may live for a few years.

Damselflies are insects in the sub-order Zygoptera, which means “paired-wings”. the wings are almost equal in shape and size and when a damselfly is resting they hold their wings along the length of their abdomen. Yet there are exceptions such as the emerald damselfly. The eyes are also separated.

Dragonflies have unequal wings, sub-order Anisoptera, and they hold their wings out from the body. Dragonflies have large eyes that often touch each.

Changes in the climate may also contribute to the decline. Around 15 percent of dragonfly and damselfly species  in Europe are regarded as being threatened by extinction.  Better management of wetlands  are required to save these beautiful insects. Also building networks of volunteer that can help to monitor the populations are important.

The big butterfly count has recently taken place in the UK. Cannot wait for the spending a summer day counting the number of  dragonflies and damselflies. And yes, I did the count butterflies and I did report a zero count – I saw no butterflies in my garden at all the day I did the count. I have since seen a couple.

The Dragon-fly

Today I saw the dragon-fly

Come from the wells where he did lie.

An inner impulse rent the veil

Of his old husk: from head to tail

Came out of clear plates of sapphire mail.

He dried his wings: like gauze the grew;

Thro’ crofts and pastures wet with dew

A living flash of light he flew.

 Alfred Lord Tennyson

Nature

Visdom hartNature is my role model.

It soothes and heals and provides ultimate love.

Giving without asking for anything in return.

When someone or something makes me feel love, I try to live

after the lessons that Nature has taught me.

Sharing and helping others.

You’ll get it back when you least expect it.
