A life finishes ... while some others come into the world ...




L'anima dovrebbe sempre stare socchiusa,
pronta ad accogliere l'esperienza dell'estasi.

Emily Dickinson





Accade, spesso, sempre più spesso che il tempo scorra in fretta e non ci si renda conto di quanto velocemente i mesi, gli anni passino ... a giugno il nostro Anacleto avrebbe compiuto 17 anni, un micio dalle dimensioni minute come prima non mi era mai capitato di vedere, che venne alla luce presso la casa di alcuni vicini, nella borgata dove allora abitavamo, ma non appena cominciò con il muovere i primi passi venne da noi ed ... aveva già fatto la sua scelta, voleva che fossimo noi la sua famiglia ... divenne il piccolino di mamma e papà coccolato da quella che allora era una grande famigliola fatta di tanti 'fratelli' per lui, famigliola che purtroppo, con il trascorrere del tempo, divenne sempre più piccola fino a che egli si trovò a rimanere l'ultimo, sempre più gioioso, sempre più coccolato ed amato ... 

Da alcuni mesi l'età era divenuta un peso per lui ed il suo brio è andato sfumando a poco a poco, ma davvero non ci voleva lasciare ... fino a che questa mattina la troppa debolezza lo ha vinto ed è tornato al cielo ... sì, da oggi in cielo vi è un piccolo angelo in più ... grazie piccolino per tutto quello che ci hai donato ...



Il dolore che si prova in questi casi lo può comprendere solo chi abita in compagnia di creature che ci accompagnano durante il cammino della vita di ogni giorno, talvolta facendoci sorridere, talvolta consolandoci in momenti di sconforto, sempre comunque al nostro fianco, creature che si fanno dono per noi ...

Ma la vita è sempre pronta a sorprenderci, e, poco dopo la scomparsa di Anacleto, con gli occhi ancora velati dal pianto ed il cuore in preda allo sconforto, passeggiando nel nostro portico in compagnia di Bea e Giannotto, con il cuore gonfio di tristezza e di malinconia, ho udito un trillo che ben conosco ... erano i primi gemiti di una nidiata di codirossi 





... si trattava solo di scoprire dove fosse, l'unica cosa che compresi subito era che questi suoni finissimi provenivano dall'alto e Giannotto sembrava averlo compreso con me




 ... tanti, tantissimi sono i nidi di cinciallegre, fringuelli, merli, usignoli, allodole, ballerine, picchi, ghiandaie, passeri, pettirossi, codibugnoli ed altri ancora che ogni giorno brulicano di vita sui nostri alberi e tra le fessure dei nostri vecchi muri, ma oggi davvero non credevo mi attendesse una tale meraviglia: da anni alcuni passeracei trovano albergo nel nostro portico durante l'inverno e con ogni probabilità vi è chi, in mezzo ai cesti che tengo appesi alle vecchie travi del soffitto,




ha scorto il luogo ideale, sicuro e protetto, per deporre le proprie uova e crescere i propri piccoli .... 




il cuore mi si è riconfortato, è stato come se una mano dal cielo avesse voluto lenire le mie pene mostrandomi come la vita sia un continuo rinnovarsi e come sempre, anche tra le lacrime, vi possa essere spazio per un sorriso di incanto, di commozione, quello che solo un abbraccio celeste può donare ... 

E comunque non eravamo soli, altri occhi incuriositi, ma tutt'altro che spaventati, ci stavano osservando, proprio a pochi passi da noi ...




 



un'altra nidiata, questa volta di quattro coniglietti, stava compiendo, indisturbata, la propria passeggiata quotidiana ... mi correggo, non erano quattro, bensì cinque, 




uno, ancor più tranquillo di tutti gli altri, e di sicuro da poco sveglio, era un po' più in disparte a fare toilette ... 




Mi ricordai allora di una frase che lessi tempo fa tra le pagine del romanzo Emma di Jane Austen:


Nessun incanto è pari alla tenerezza del cuore.





Ho scritto commossa queste righe, perché ancora la tristezza non mi abbandona, ci vuole tempo per accettare certi accadimenti che fanno parte della vita, anche se sono consapevole di avere tanti, davvero tanti motivi per cui gioire in ogni attimo delle mie giornate ...




Un dolore è più forte in primavera,
per contrasto alle cose che cantano -
non soltanto gli uccelli - ma le menti -
e i minuti splendori e le brezze -
quando ciò per cui cantano è distrutto,
a che serve un'azzurra melodia -
ma la resurrezione ebbe da attendere
finché non fosse rimossa una pietra -


Emily Dickinson, 1530




A presto 💕



















The soul should always stand ajar, 

ready to welcome the ecstatic experience.


Emily Dickinson





- picture 1  




It happens, more and more often, that the time passes quickly and we don't realize how fast days, months and years go by ... in June our Anacleto would have turned 17 years old, a kitten from such a minute size as I had never seen before, which came into the world at the house of some neighbors in the little village where we lived then, but as soon as he began moving his first steps, he came to us and ... he had already made his choice, he wanted us to become his family ...  he became mom and dad's little one, spoiled by what was then a great family made up of many little cats, 'siblings' for him, family that unfortunately, with the flowing  of the time, became smaller and smaller until he remained the last, always more joyful, pampered and loved more and more ...

For some months his age had become a burden to him and his liveliness went vanishing little by little, but he really didn't want to leave us ... until this morning, the far too much weakness  won him and he returned to heaven. .. yes, now in heaven there is one more little angel ... thank you, my little one, for everything you've given us during these so lovely years ...




- picture 2




The pain you feel in such cases may understood just by those who live in the company of creatures that lead us along the way of life every day, sometimes making us laugh, sometimes consoling us in moments of despair, but always by our side, creatures which make themselves a gift for us ...

But life is always ready to surprise us, and, shortly after Anacleto's death, with my eyes still veiled by tears and my heart in despair, walking along our porch together with Bea and Giannotto, with my soul full of sadness and melancholy, I heard a trill which I know so well ... they were the first groans of a brood of redstarts




- picture 3


- picture 4




... It was just to find out where the nest was, the only thing I quickly realized was that these fine sounds came from above and Giannotto seemed to have understood it together with me




- picture 5




... Such a lot are the nests of titmice, finches, blackbirds, warblers, skylarks, dancers, woodpeckers, jays, sparrows, robins, long-tailed tits and others which every day are teeming with life on our trees and between the cracks of our old walls, but today really I didn't think tha such a wonder was awaiting me: for years some passerines find housing in our porch during the Winter and in all probability one of them, in the midst of the baskets that I keep hanging on the old ceiling beams,




- picture 6


- picture 7




She has chosen the perfect location, safe and secure, where to lay her eggs and raise her little ones ....




- picture 8


- picture 9




my heart was comforted, it was as if a hand coming from heaven had wanted to soothe my pain showing me that life is a continuous renewal and as always, even through tears, there may be room for a smile of enchantment, of emotion, which only a celestial hug can donate ...

Anyway, we were not alone, other curious - but not scared at all - little eyes were looking at us, just a few steps from us ...




- picture 10


- picture 11


- picture 12


- picture 13




one litter, this time of four bunnies, was fulfilling, undisturbed, its daily walk ...I'm correcting myself, they weren't four, but five,




- picture 14 




one, even quieter than everyone else, and certainly just woken up, was a little more on the sidelines to make toilet ...




- picture 15




Then I remembered a phrase that I read long ago amongst the pages of the novel Emma by Jane Austen:



No wonder is equal to the tenderness of the heart.





- picture 16




I wrote down these lines so moved, this sadness still doesn't leave me, it takes some time to accept certain events that are part of life, even though I have many, so very many reasons for which to rejoice in every moment of my day ...



A Pang is more conspicuous in Spring
In contrast with the things that sing
Not Birds entirely—but Minds—
Minute Effulgencies and Winds—
When what they sung for is undone
Who cares about a Blue Bird’s Tune—
Why, Resurrection had to wait
Till they had moved a Stone—


Emily Dickinson, 1530

  2. Oh Dany, so moving post and sad news. We love our pets but their life is shorter than ours. There is always the tragic separation. Your sorrow needs time to get more bearable but you have the lovely memories - and the thought that Anacleto has it well now might help. - Our dear dog passed away last summer and still today my husband gets tears in his eyes... For me it's easier already.

    I love your photos, your gees, bunnies and new born birds. We have a lot of birds too and they are so fun to watch.

    Dear Dany, I send you my warm comfort, thoughts and hugs. Be grateful of the long years Anacleto brought joy to your life. When the deepest sorrow gets lighter, the memories turn brighter.

  3. My dear Dany,
    it is always so sad when we lost a family member and our pets are family members. For myself I love my dogs and cats and goose an piggys and hens more than most of the people I know. I´m sorry for that, but it is the truth!
    But on the countryside there are always wonders to watch. Yes sometimes the little sweeties choose a very special new home like the baskets under the roof. There´s an old tin can in my garden and a tomtit couple had chosen it for building a nest years ago. Every year they come back and my haart is full of joy when I see that. That is happiness for me, these little unpayable things makes my life worth while.
    Wish you more little wonders, even when your Anacleto has gone over the rainbow bridge, he has taken your love with him and that keeps him safe and warm. Even our pets get a place in heaven and isn´t it comforting to know, that´s they will waiting for us?

    Hugs and kisses, Barbara

      oh, I so understand you when you talk about the inner joy that the wonder that the Nature gives you makes your life worth living, for me it's the same, animals enrich our life and make it so very much more precious ... you should have a look at me every year when the swallows come back ... it's a party of joy to me ... indeed, for us all !

      I'm so very grateful to you for your words of solace ... you know, I also love all my 'babies' much more than some people I know, for they love me and know they may trust me because my love for them is boundless ... we're like a big family, aren't we ?
      Animals don't know envy and wickedness, they're God's creature ... people also are, but they too often know malice ...

      I hug you with so much love, my dearest, wonderful friend, and thank you most sincerely, thinking of you with deep gratitude ❀≼♥≽❀

  8. Dear Dany, my heart is breaking for your loss. Your sweet Anacleto reminds me so much of my Lizzie Cosette with that wonderful face. and I know he gave you much joy, many moments of laughter and great love. I know, also, that you gave him so very much in return.

    I have been in your shoes with my own sweet Marmelade Gypsy, namesake of my blog, and I know how the heart breaks in many pieces you think may never come together again. Yet as you have seen, little miracles happen that help to heal the heart, though the loss remains forever. I'm glad you were blessed with baby birds and bunnies, a sweet sign of the renewal of life, even in deep sadness.

    Across the miles I send you hugs and wishes for peace and healing.

As you know we lost 2 cats last year that were 17 years old and I know the pain, it is so hard to believe it has been a year for us since Anna's passing and in a couple months will be a year for Jip's passing, they do leave a whole but I do pray that the pain of this loss for you will lighten and when you think of him there will no longer be tears of loss but of the happiness you shared together, big (((HUGS))) to you my friend!

  31. Oh I can so relate how sad you felt with the passing of your dear Ancleto... our animals become like family to us, and they add so much beauty to our world. I'm so thankful you were able to witness the beauty of new life even as you were grieving the passing of the life of your dear cat. Such a lovely spot for the new little lives to come forth too... and the pictures of the rabbit so precious... I do so love your porch area, just beautiful! Hoping that your heart is comforted in the joy of the new life that you have witnessed. Hugs to you today!!!

  34. Dany I'm touched by this post, so sad to loose your sweet friend Anacleto and I know how you feel for it's only 3 months that we lost our border collie Snarf, and we still miss him so much, despite we know that we survive our animals. It is nice to see the new life in the basket hanging on the ceiling of your porch, what a sweet little baby birds. That's life there is a coming and a going....
    By the way I'm a fan of Emily Dickinson's poems, so beautiful.
    Such fun to see rabbits in your garden too, I'm often watching them in the garden, there are sometimes 6 at one time in the garden and they have fun together running around, eating my plants, but I cannot resist them. I love my flowers but the animals come on first place. Hope you can enjoy the new life growing in the basket during these sad days.
    Hugs, Janneke

  46. Cara Daniela, quando queste creature entrano nelle nostre case, nelle nostre famiglie, fanno parte integrante di esse. E proprio per questo, quando non ci sono più, è uno strappo al cuore. Capisco, più di quanto immagini. La vita continua comunque, ogni giorno torna l'alba e la sera il tramonto. Ogni giorno c'è una nuova vita, che sia di un essere umano, o di un cucciolo a quattro zampe, questo è il CICLO DELLA VITA. Doloroso, faticoso, certamente, e non sai come vorrei abbracciarti forte. Nuove vite arriveranno a caricare il tuo cuore di gioia. Un bacione grande grande grande. Paola

  49. Dear Daniela, I'm sorry my visit is so belated. We are in Kansas City visiting my husband's only sister. It is a two day drive to come here and my sweet Blue Monday friends did not get timely visits. We are very happy to take this vacation. I will be posting for Blue Monday on May 30th. and I hope to have more time to visit then.

    Your post about the loss of your kitty and then the rebirth of the birds and the bunnies is so sad and happy. We have felt the pain of losing two of our dear pets over the years. It is the way of life and I think in after thought, it makes us love the creatures and pets even more. I love the photos you shared.

    Happy Blue Monday.
