Inspirational Friday

Inspirational Friday a day that dedicated to art. The day when Muse come down to the Earth and gives inspiration to us. By the way our nickname consist a “Muse” too, because in Ukrainian “Muse” would sound like “Muza”. But what is more interesting in Ancient Greece Muses were considered as goddess of inspiration of literature, science and the arts. According to mythology they are daughters of Zeus. Sometimes Muses referred as a water nymphs – a young, beautiful ladies, whose soul personifies water’s spirit in a woman’s body. So today is the right day to do arts: writing poems, drawing or painting pictures etc. Many of us forget to devote time to creativity, but it’s really important to do it at times. Creativity distracts us from boring and usual work, problems etc. That is very important to take a rest and to take care of our mental health.

It seems like a muse swam near me, I felt her push in my chest and a way of an inspiration swept over me. I couldn’t do anything except of creativity. So I sat on the seaside and trusted up in my arms, they carried me on the fantasy’s flow. And I could do nothing to it.

I smell the air
and taste the breeze.
I sense a presence there;
a kindred spirit next to me
that hovers everywhere.

Jiminy Cricket




Where art thou, Muse, that thou forget’st so long
To speak of that which gives thee all thy might?
Spend’st thou thy fury on some worthless song,
Darkening thy power to lend base subjects light?

Return, forgetful Muse, and straight redeem
In gentle numbers time so idly spent;
Sing to the ear that doth thy lays esteem,
And gives thy pen both skill and argument
.
Rise, resty Muse, my love’s sweet face survey
If time have any wrinkle graven there;
If any, be a satire to decay,
And make time’s spoils despisèd everywhere.

Give my love fame faster than Time wastes life;
So thou prevent’st his scythe and crooked knife. 

William Shakespeare

We hope after this post of #summer_serenade all of us will think about adding time to create.

Independent Thursday

Independent Thursday is day of #summer_serenade to show world our uniq and independence. Not without reason we called this day Independent Thursday also because today is Independence Day that celebrate in USA. Because independence it isn’t only about freedom of country it’s also about freedom of choice. Today is a day to show up all your possibilities and ambitions, don’t bother yourself with someone’s opinion. The right decision is to follow yourself.

In one of meanings of the word independence is to do what you want, wear clothes what you want. Be yourself at all. So in this picture the artist portrayed an independent woman.

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
for my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

William Ernest Henley

We hope that this day was really productive for all of us.

Floral Wednesday

Floral Wednesday is first day of #summer_serenade, a day dedicated for values of our environment and it’s beauty. Look at all of this flowers. They are so wonderful and soaked with love, aren’t they? We grow up and blossom like they do. But sometimes we need help to open up in full our beauty .Wednesday gives us this hope that we can do this, that we can change something. This energy full us at all, that we with out thinking go forward, do work and change world. There is no tiredness only inspiration. And after hard, productive day we sit on the soft sofa with someone we like, get some hugs and enjoy this wonderful life and it’s beauty. Because life like our own picture that full of different colors, different feelings and experiences.

“Wet Irises” is the best picture to hang it on the living’s room wall. This beautiful flowers symbolize friendship, loyalty and respect. The beauty of iris consist in uniq building of flower: accreted petals form a tubule with six fancifully fold back tips. Wonderful color gamma is presented with all colors of rainbow and you involuntarily begin enjoy the life.

Not a yellow or blue iris
that flowers in a cup right through the winter
not a pepper tree
that throws shadows the whole time

but to me you are
purple-blue morning glories
that folds open with the sun, 
trailing everywhere

and when the dark days come, 
with rain falling almost unstoppable
your grow densely
and with the first sunshine
there are flower upon flower.

Beneath a sun
That constantly
Makes love
To the horizon.”

Summer novelties

We’ve got new summer pics. This time of year is so wonderful that artist couldn’t leave it behind.

Now it is two arts called “Summer Bay” and “Summer Romance”

We called artworks with the word summer in the name of this magical season.

Summer Bay

What do you love in summer maybe warm weather or lots of berries?
But what will you say about warm water? When you dive in this water, it covered up all your body . And you and water become one whole.

I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;
And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking.
 
I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied; 

And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.
 
I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull’s way and the whale’s way where the wind’s like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over.

— John Masefield
Summer Romance

Summer is the time when more and more flowers start blossoming, so author try to convey all beauty of these flowers.

“Buttercups have honeyed hearts,
Bees they love the clover,
But I love the daisies’ dance
All the meadow over “
