It’s snowing




It’s snowing the winter through mind
And whitening matters apart.
The whispers of wind fall behind
While light shines the bliss in my heart.

The tales are in dance to the moon
To bring magic fairies to sphere.
Yet singing with force yearning’s tune
While sunlight its sparkling may dare. 

It’s snowing with warmth over ways
Embracing the struggle with peace.
A marvellous season lights days
While shaping its white masterpiece.

Raining pouring tears and fears
Calling times in memories.
Winter cold and darkness deep
Play with light while try to keep
Sun to temperate the days.
Hope to bright with its warm rays.

Stepping mind on my way home
See the coldness walks alone
Through the vision magic place
Seeking kind smile to embrace
From the snowflakes magic dance.
Mellow smile on Winter own.

Raining just became a dance
Of the magic with snowflakes.
Radiate the light and shine
Warming souls till up the line
Of a marvel to embrace.
Smiling Sun comforts the place.

My Dear October

My Dear October, you will be full of Dreams

which spark on the nights through mirth of the angels.

With joy and with hope I’m dancing the waltz 

of leaving and getting the treasures of times.  



My Dear October, you will make up my ons

while nostalgic embrace my  memories back

but tying the tales through your foggy dawns 

and eyes of surrender are catching your snaps.


My Dear October, you will be full of hope

and joy, while my waltz could become so much sober

Through colors and music I’m catching the rope

while dear to me will remain, my October. 



Deepest dream

Behind of smiling flowers, behind of lights of stars
I saw on other worldliness the bridge up to my peace.
I’m still behind of shadows and write in other books
A long poem to Life while dancing with my tears.
While running in the darkness in winter’s nights to reach
The whole embrace of mornings and giving up the scream
Of all the painful hours, still looking to my bridge,
I dare myself, while singing and live the deepest    dream!
While heavy rain is falling in all my winter days,
While singing with a faker which just broke out my faith,
I dare myself to walk through hope’s and mornings rays
Ahead of lately hours, to catch the dream onset.

Life’s Waltz

I  woke up that morning and saw
on other peculiar seconds
how dreams were dancing on floor.

They told to the walls to break away
while stars were embracing the game
and showed me the magical way.

In whispers I got kindly  charm
From all the wishes I thought
I lost them while passing the road.

I woke up that morning and felt like
a part of my heart has been hugged
In a dance of the grace with the angels.

Still shy and still looking for light
I stepped to follow my heart on that dance,
embracing the time, embracing the space.

I woke up that morning and now
We still are on dance with the stars
which color the tales like the fairies.

Three steps for a dream to become,
Three steps for the power to be,
I follow my heart on life’s waltz.

I woke up that morning to Me.

Martha Graham

“Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.” – Voltaire

My Dear Spring

My Dear Spring, on this night
I kindly ask you save for me a dance.
A dance of hope, of lights or might
Switch them on in thousands ways of chance
My Dear Spring, please  listen to the wind.
It has blown-up the wishes from my heart.
I run my race through space but I was finding
Eventually I felt from stars apart.
My Dear Spring, in this night
I kindly ask you save for me a dance.
And let the music fall in love so blind
With my hope eyes, with my soul glance.

Nottingham – Dancing with Sun


Dancing with  Sun, in a lovely Summer day…

No rain  has washed  my laugh away.

Falling in love again and again

With hope’s awesome aims…

Linking to the Robin Hood Legend, Nottingham is  the largest city in the East Midlands and the second largest in the Midlands.

The geographical centre of Nottingham is usually defined as the Old Market Square, the largest city square in the UK. The square is dominated by the Council House, which replaced The Nottingham Exchange Building, built in 1726. The Council House was built in the 1920s to display civic pride, ostentatiously using baroque columns and placing stone statues of two lions at the front to stand watch over the square. The Exchange Arcade, on the ground floor, is an upmarket shopping centre containing boutiques.

Tall office buildings line Maid Marian Way. The Georgian area around Oxford and Regent Streets is dominated by small professional firms. The Albert Hall,faces the Gothic revival, St, Barnabas’ Roman Catholic Cathedral  by Pugin.  Nottingham Castle   and its grounds are located further south in the western third of the city. The central third descends from the University district in the north, past Nottingham Trent University’s Gothic revival Arkwright Building. The University also owns many other buildings in this area. The Theatre Royal on Theatre Square, with its pillared façade, was built in 1865. King and Queen Streets are home to striking  Victorian buildings designed by such architects as Alfred Waterhouse  and  Watson Fothergill.

To the south, is Broadmarsh Shopping Centre.  The Canal-side further south of this is adjacent to Nottingham railway station  and home to numerous redeveloped 19th-century industrial buildings, reused as bars and restaurants.

The eastern third of the city centre contains the Victoria Shopping Centre, built in the 1970s on the site of the demolished Victoria Railway Station. All that remains of the old station is the clock tower and the station hotel, now the Nottingham Hilton Hotel. The 250 feet-high Victoria Centre flats stand above the shopping centre and are the tallest buildings in the city. The eastern third contains Hockley Village . Hockley is where many of Nottingham’s unique, independent shops are to be found. It is also home to two alternative cinemas.

The traditional requirement of city status is a (Church of England) cathedral. Nottingham, however, does not have one, having only been designated a city in 1897, in celebration of Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee. From around AD 1100 Nottingham was part of the  Diocese of Lichfield, controlled as an archdeaconry from  Lichfield Cathedral in Staffordshire. However, in 1837 the archdeaconry was placed under the control of the  Diocese of Lincoln. In 1884 it became part of the newly created  Diocese of Southwell,  which it, and the city, are still part of today. The bishop is based at Southwell Minster,  14 miles (23 km) north-east of the city. In 2005 the diocese was renamed the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham. 

Despite not having a cathedral, Nottingham has three notable historic Anglican parish churches,   all of which date back to the Middle Ages. St. Mary the Virgin, in the Lace Market, is the oldest and largest. The church dates from the eighth or ninth centuries, but the present building is at least the third on the site, dating primarily from 1377 to 1485. St. Mary’s is considered the mother church of the city and civic services are held here, including the welcome to the new Lord Mayor of Nottingham  each year. It is a member of the  Greatest Churches Group. St. Peter’s  in  the heart of the city is the oldest building in continuous use in Nottingham, with traces of building starting in 1180.  St. Nicholas’was rebuilt after destruction in the Civil War.

A variety of chapels and meeting rooms are in the town. Many of these grand buildings have been demolished, including Halifax Place Wesleyan Chapel,  but some have been re-used, notably High Pavement Chapel  which is now a public house. The national headquarters of the Congregational Federation is in Nottingham.

Nottingham is one of 18 British cities that do not have an Anglican cathedral.  It is, however, home to the Roman Catholic Cathedral of St. Barnabas,  which was designed by Augustus Pugin  and  consecrated  in 1844. It is the cathedral church for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Nottingham.  

Today there are places of worship for all major religions, including Christianity, Islam  with 32 Mosques in Nottingham,] Hinduism, Sikhism, Taoism and Judaism.  The Nottingham Inter-faith Council works to make connections between faith groups and show the wider public the importance of spiritual aspects of life and the contribution faith groups make to the community.
