If Poems lead to healing, so let's write poems to Masha Sharapova for her total recovery and return to the court.


Во глубине сибирских руд
Храните гордое терпенье,
Не пропадет ваш скорбный труд
И дум высокое стремленье.


Несчастью верная сестра,
Надежда в мрачном подземелье
Разбудит бодрость и веселье,
Придет желанная пора:


Любовь и дружество до вас
Дойдут сквозь мрачные затворы,
Как в ваши каторжные норы
Доходит мой свободный глас.


Оковы тяжкие падут,
Темницы рухнут — и свобода
Вас примет радостно у входа,
И братья меч вам отдадут.


Alexander Pushkin


 


 

"I'd love to open a tennis school for children in my hometown of Sochi." said Sharapova Maria.

Someone told me that Poems lead to healing, let's write poems for Maria Sharapova for her total recovery.


 Searching for Healing?


I don’t know what works for you
Sunshine on a cloudy day?
Is it the warmth-like passion,
Of a luminous solar ray?


Maybe it’s the odor
Of freshly baking bread,
That crawls up your nose
And bursts in your head?


I don’t know what works for you
I rarely know what helps me,
But certain elements bring strength
In a life desperate for glee.


A funny slapstick movie,
A Donald Duck cartoon,
A childhood “funny bone” memory
A cow jumping over the moon?


I don’t know what works for you
But I know laughter explodes like a bomb
Just don’t take pain too seriously
As it may rob you of all your aplomb.


There are some wonders of nature
Which behave like a miracle drug.
They occur when you least expect it
Like an impetuous warm hug.


I don’t know what works for you
But there are experiences we share
Like the courage it takes each day
To face all that we must bear.


A child dripping water from a pool?
Your spouse laughing out loud?
A Shasta daisy bursting with bloom
As if it’s satiated and proud?


I don’t know what works for you
But I know we both have pain
As we search for meaning in our lives
So all this won’t be in vane.


A grandchild who expresses herself
By constantly saying, “Oh, phooey!”
Or a warm, chocolate devil’s food cake
With frosting hot, drippy and gooey?


I’m thinking of you while you search
‘Cause I’ll be searching, too,
For healing elements hidden in life
Which are sometimes in plain view.

Good Enough


Look into the mirror of my eyes
See your radiant image that
Stares back
You are a gift to this world
Perfect daughter
You are good enough.



Feel the breath that
Flows in your throat
Place your hand on
Your chest, feel it rise
You are a gift to this world
Perfect daughter
You are good enough.


Feel the rhythm of life that
Dances in your hips
Your blood roars with passion
Perfect daughter
Believe in yourself
You are a gift to this world
That's what I see
I see you in me
You are good enough.

Do you get enough nature? Many of us are suffering from what one author calls “Nature Deficit Disorder.” Because we are evolved to spend time in nature, when we can’t get enough of it, we get tense, stressed, and depressed. This poem is a beautiful antidote, a reminder of the natural spirit world that is waiting for us. Simply reading it will calm you and nourish your soul.


The Quiet Listeners


Go into the woods
and tell your story
to the trees.
They are wise
standing in their folds of silence
among white crystals of rock
and dying limbs.
And they have time.
Time for the swaying of leaves,
the floating down,
the dust.
They have time for gathering
and holding the earth about their feet.
Do this.
It is something I have learned.
How they will bend down to you
so softly.
They will bend down to you
and listen.

God's Warm Smile!


 


Sometimes, I walk in the rain,
just because I like the smell.
Sometimes when I get mad,
I tend to yell.
Sometimes I feel, like I'm all alone,
sometimes I am. 


But I know, 


no matter where or when or why,
God smiles at me, 


watches me from the sky!
He's always there, 


he never leaves,
so I know I'm safe.
Sometimes I get scared,
but I think of sunny days.
'Cause, I like to pretend,
the sun is God's warm smile,
and then I'm okay for a while.
When I start to doubt, I pray,
and all the sadness goes away!

Земля и море




Когда по синеве морей
Зефир скользит и тихо веет
В ветрила гордых кораблей
И челны на волнах лелеет;


Забот и дум слогая груз,
Тогда ленюсь я веселее -
И забываю песни Муз:
Мне моря сладкий шум милее.


Когда же волны по брегам
Ревут, кипят и пеной плещут,
И гром гремит по небесам,
И молнии во мраке блещут -


Я удаляюсь от морей
В гостеприимные дубровы;
Земля мне кажется верней,
И жалок мне рыбак суровый;


Живет на утлом он челне,
Игралище слепой пучины.
А я в надежной тишине
Внимаю шум ручья долины.


 


А.С. Пушкин

Petal by Petal


I love you
You love me not,
Petal by petal
we shear our family flower
until magically
new petals grow
and they all say
I love you
and we grow a
chryansthemum of hope.

Healing :


    No greater healing i know of, than the healing found in Jesus.(isaiah53)


   And this healing is not just for the body ,but for the sin sick soul, for our mind and our emotions.


  (Do you feel far from God? you dont have to .God has given us a way to come back to God and even to understand his ways.)  ...


  There was a time where i felt far from God, but then i cried out in desperation and ive gotten closer to God ever since.(i cant say its always been easy but there is a peace so sweet that ive found countless times when i spend my time drawing closer to God."draw nigh unto God and he will draw nigh unto you"(james4:8).Once a person experiences it he can no longer live for anything else, you'll  want more of it! .And unlike the addictions that the devil brings to man , this addiction leads to heaven on earth now  (without any side effects ) and  a greater desire for God. It'll keep you up most of the night!....a light from God to enlighten you , in the midst of your darkness .Then as you open your heart to it and it  makes you a light in the world too!.


   Sin causes seperation from God


  What is sin? sin is anything contrary to God's Law .


  What bring's man back to God ? faith in believing what Jesus did for you 2,000 years ago Then walking in that faith by following what God has told us to do, in His Word .Believe it and follow it !!


  (john7) "my words they are spirit and they are life"jesus said!. Find it! Hold onto it! recite it, meditate upon it,let it sing in your soul  until it empowers you!.The apostle paul said "meditate upon these things and give thyself wholly unto them"(1 timothy 4:15)


  2,000 years ago jesus walked by, to a group of men and spoke 2 simple words "follow me" and the bible says those who heard it, "left all to follow Jesus." .2  simple words!...In another place  a man named lazarus was dead for 4 days and jesus walked up to his tomb and spoke 3 simple words "Lazarus come forth!" and the bible says he arose grave clothes and all ! ..Simple words yet when God is behind it, it  becomes great!!!


Jesus calls unto us today! if you can hear his voice you can arise unto New life too.2 simple words! 3 simple words! the power of Gods Word!!!.come forth! arise! whew!.Makes me feel better just saying it!


Even if God seems far hold on with all you have "faith conquers the world"." And whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world even our faith" 1 john5:4.


   Some think God is not real?? yet millions have come out of darkness by believing Gods Word. David said "the entrance of the Words giveth light , it giveth understanding unto the simple"(psalm119).whew ! giving light!!


  A person  doesnt have to travel the world to find it.  A prisoner being confined in a jail cell can find it?.His pain causes his sprirt and soul to travel out and search for something beyond this natural world , to fill the void in his soul!


"  repent therefore and be converted that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord"acts3:19.....Gods presence can be experienced, he's not a God afar off!!.


   There is a refreshing, there is a sweet peace, a love light  so divine...........God bless you Maria......    ....from ..michael

Towards the Light


By moonlight,
or starlight,
or in the sun's bright rays,
I journey,
guiding my way
by keeping
to the light
as best I can.
Sometimes all seems dark,
then I remember
how the poppy turns its head,
follows the sun's passage across the sky,
then rests in night's cool shadows,
bowing in thanks
to whatever power
makes the stalk
stand straight and strong,
drawing deep from its roots
a wine dark love.
In moonlight,
the garden glows,
silvering the poppies.
And even by starlight
you can tell
shades of darkness
if you try.
So do not lose heart
when vision dims.
Journey forth
as best you can-
bloom when you are able,
rest when you must,
keep faith,
keep always
towards the light.

Признание




 



Я вас люблю, хоть я бешусь,
Хоть это труд и стыд напрасный,
И в этой глупости несчастной
У ваших ног я признаюсь!


Мне не к лицу и не по летам...
Пора, пора мне быть умней!
Но узнаю по всем приметам
Болезнь любви в душе моей:


Без вас мне скучно, — я зеваю;
При вас мне грустно, — я терплю;
И, мочи нет, сказать желаю,
Мой ангел, как я вас люблю!


Когда я слышу из гостиной
Ваш легкий шаг, иль платья шум,
Иль голос девственный, невинный,
Я вдруг теряю весь свой ум.


Вы улыбнетесь, — мне отрада;
Вы отвернетесь, — мне тоска;
За день мучения — награда
Мне ваша бледная рука.


Когда за пяльцами прилежно
Сидите вы, склонясь небрежно,
Глаза и кудри опустя, —
Я в умиленье, молча, нежно
Любуюсь вами, как дитя!..


Сказать ли вам мое несчастье,
Мою ревнивую печаль,
Когда гулять, порой в ненастье,
Вы собираетеся вдаль?


И ваши слезы в одиночку,
И речи в уголку вдвоем,
И путешествия в Опочку,
И фортепьяно вечерком?..


Алина! сжальтесь надо мною.
Не смею требовать любви.
Быть может, за грехи мои,
Мой ангел, я любви не стою!


Но притворитесь! Этот взгляд
Все может выразить так чудно!
Ах, обмануть меня нетрудно!..
Я сам обманываться рад!


А.С. Пушкина

Great!!! My mother translate me this song, but not everything, just the parts of song that she can understand... And I really like it!!! When she was a kid she have learnd Russian language in Budapest in one Russian school- she knew Russian perfect to speak, but today she forgot Russian and now she knows it just a little... I would like to learn Russian and I think that Russian is not too hard language for me, because Serbian language is very similar to Russian ( I'm from Serbia)... Anyway, what's your name? My name is Sonja.

Я вас любил


Я вас любил: любовь еще, быть может,
В душе моей угасла не совсем;
Но пусть она вас больше не тревожит;
Я не хочу печалить вас ничем.

Я вас любил безмолвно, безнадежно,
То робостью, то ревностью томим;
Я вас любил так искренно, так нежно,
Как дай вам бог любимой быть другим.

Nice to meet you, Pasha! I'm from Belgrade, Serbia. I'm 17 and I am going to gymnasium( I don't know how can I say this kind of school in english, I hope that you understand me) and there I learn English and German. French is a nice language too, I like it. I love many languages like Russian, Spanish, French, Italian and German, but I don't like English!!! Maybe because I'm not good at it, I don't know...

Зимняя дорога




 



Сквозь волнистые туманы
Пробирается луна,
На печальные поляны
Льет печально свет она.


По дороге зимней, скучной
Тройка борзая бежит,
Колокольчик однозвучный
Утомительно гремит.


Что-то слышится родное
В долгих песнях ямщика:
То разгулье удалое,
То сердечная тоска...


Ни огня, ни черной хаты,
Глушь и снег... Навстречу мне
Только версты полосаты
Попадаются одне...


Скучно, грустно... завтра, Нина,
Завтра к милой возвратясь,
Я забудусь у камина,
Загляжусь, не наглядясь.


Звучно стрелка часовая
Мерный круг свой совершит,
И, докучных удаляя,
Полночь нас не разлучит.


Грустно, Нина: путь мой скучен,
Дремля смолкнул мой ямщик.
Колокольчик однозвучен,
Отуманен лунный лик.

"I'd love to open a tennis school for children in my hometown of Sochi." said Sharapova Maria.

I am not studing, but I will !!! And I think that everybody can study if they want, we all have opportunities, but somebody use it and somebody don't... it's sad... Sometimes I really love to learn- because you learn a lot of fun things and a lot of things that you can use in your privite life. For example this year, on the class of geographic,  we learn about Russia and I was very surprised about some things!!! Sometimes it can be fun when you're learning!!! But I really DON"T LIKE MATHEMATICS and physic, simply they are not for me!!!!!


I like Marias tennis and I like her fashion, her style!!! I really love that feminine style, when you're wearing dresses, high hills it's pretty nice.


I like Safins' tennis, too!!! He's MY FAVOURITE tennis player!!! I LOVE HIM!!! And what about you- what's your fav. male player?

Marat Safin is a good tennis player. He is not the best but anyway he is good.


Yes at the moment I am supporting Dinara Safina at the olympics, she plays very well. She won today again.
