Happy Monday friends! Welcome to another edition of Monday Travels

So today we are in Chile and we will explore:


Let's get to know Pablo Neruda:
Pablo Neruda  (born Ricardo Eliécer Neftalí Reyes Basoalto, July 12, 1904 – September 23, 1973) was a poet and a diplomat. Neruda became known as a poet when he was 10 years old. He wrote in a variety of styles, including surrealist poems, historical epics, overtly political manifestos, a prose autobiography, and passionate love poems. During his lifetime, Neruda occupied many diplomatic positions and served a term as a Senator for the Chilean Communist Party. He later went into exile with his wife as the president threatened to arrest him. In his lifetime he received Nobel Prizes for both Peace and Literature.


Everything on the earth bristled, the bramble
pricked and the green thread
nibbled away, the petal fell, falling
until the only flower was the falling itself.
Water is another matter,
has no direction but its own bright grace,
runs through all imaginable colors,
takes limpid lessons
from stone,
and in those functionings plays out
the unrealized ambitions of the foam.


I agree with Mrs. Pablo, water has is another matter. I LOVE water it's just so magical. 
I mean up to date scientist had explored only like 5% of ocean (according to the internet), so an you imagine how many more secrets the water still has to show us? A lot I bet!
And I still say, that mermaids are real!

So, I leave you with this beautiful poem! 
Stay healthy and warm!

See you next Monday!
