The Gondolier was waiting for them with the beautiful shining lanterns in the Gondola. He will bring them later, after the walk on this Isola Giorgio Maggiore, to Giudecca Island at the Le Zitelle where Palmina has her 2nd flat and is protected by the Jesuits from her violent father and violent brother.
Other girls at the Le Zitelle have also problems with their fathers and brothers. They are reading their private messages and letters, erasing them and changing their content to isolate them from others. That’s why the girls are living here on Gudecca Island at the Jesuits.
The local authorities do not allow this and have strict laws against this and that’s why some fathers or brothers had been arrested for doing this to their relatives; arrested by the Republic of Venice – the R.O.V. – the mightiest Republic in the 16th century.

Now, not even the Gondolier could see what Palma and Palmina are doing at the secret gardens of Giorgio Maggiore, here where so much famous painters had deep inspirations (Claude Monet, 200 years later, had also big inspirations here on Giorgio Maggiore and painted a lot of paintings here and he painted also this little island).

After a while of silence Palmina asked whispering:
»Palma?«
»Yes, my Music-Angel?«
»You would really paint a white pure Pigeon in your big painting for this Church when it is ready build in a few years¹, as remembering to our spiritual walks and travels with the Gondola in Venice?«


¹ the church was finished in the year 1610 – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Giorgio_Maggiore_(church),_Venice

»San Giorgio Maggiore is a 16th-century Benedictine church on the island of the same name in Venice, northern Italy, designed by Andrea Palladio, and built between 1566 and 1610. The church is a basilica in the classical renaissance style and its brilliant white marble gleams above the blue water of the lagoon opposite the Piazzetta and forms the focal point of the view from every part of the Riva degli Schiavoni.«


»Yes, Palmina, and if we see us again in 400 years we will stand here in front of this painting and we can say this white pigeon I painted to remember our deep spiritual love.«

And they saw now in this Peony-Vision all the paintings which will be painted for this church San Giorgio Maggiore.*)

picture 6 – painting «Venus and Cupido« by Sebastiano Ricci inspired by the love of Palma and Palmina, symbolised as 2 white pigeons

The saw in their Peony-Vision that Sebastiano Ricci will also be inspired by this future- painting of Palma il Giovane with the 2 white pigeons on the right side (the 2nd pigeon is in the basked) – he studied it very intensive – and painted also two white Pigons in his famous »Venus and Cupido«


¹ Sebastiano Ricci (1659 – 1734) – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sebastiano_Ricci

»Sebastiano Ricci (1 August 1659 – 15 May 1734) was an Italian painter of the late Baroque school of VENICE. About the same age as Piazzetta, and an elder contemporary of Tiepolo, he represents a late version of the vigorous and luminous Cortonesque style of grand manner fresco painting. «


»But it is not easy for a man to be in love with Saint Cecilia…«, Palmina said innocent but very direct.

»Why, Palmina?«, Palma asked like a wise man.

»Saint Cecilia was a saint and a virgin and she wanted to keep her virginity and she wanted only to have a spiritual love relation so it was difficult for a man to marry Saint Cecillia…«

»…Hmm…, but a spiritual love…. if it is really a high dimension love, then it is like two pigeons are marring from heart to heart. They need only the spiritual arrangement of the heaven, nothing else…and this the two pigeons can feel deep inside their hearts«

»I know, Palma, this I mean with ‚It is difficult for a man to be in love with a saint virgin‘. But you, Palma, you are different. You understand the principles of a deep spiritual love. As artists we can live this spiritual love as real and the results of our deep love are great artworks and great thoughts for the culture and history – We will inspire the next generations of artists. Our children are our artworks.«

Palmina and Palma hugged standing in the secret gardens of »Giorgio Maggiore« where no one is watching then; only the planets and stars, the angels and the saint of the heaven can see them; and they smiled down to them, down to planet earth, down to Venice, down to the little small island Isola San Giorgio Maggiore, called in Venetian language »San Zorzi Mazor«.

»My Pigeon…«
»My Palma…«

»My Inspiration…«
»My composer…«

»My composing lute playing angel«
»My secret writer…«

»My yellow canary bird…- Let us work together in the next centuries – if the heaven is allowing this to us – Let’s make this wish«

»My astronomer – Yes, let us work together – Let us make this wish – Dreams come sometimes through – All we do in our artworks will be connected through our Peony Gondola, Yes, Palma – Yes Palma, – I love you and I feel it: you respect how Saint Cecilia is…«

»Yes, Palmina, I respect you…«

And in a common Vision they saw the big painting Palma il Giovane should paint for this church on that small island.

picture 7 – »Presentation of Jesus in Temple« by Palma il Giovane (Isola Giorgio Maggiore, Venice )

Palma hold her head with his strong hands, but tender, and kissed her and her beautiful lips, very soft and slow and short.
But in their heart the kiss started also, they could feel it, and this beautiful feeling they kept in their heart, even after the short tender kiss.
And this feeling stayed for day and night.
Both looked at the Vision of the painting and they saw that Palma should paint the Pigeon held by a women and the Pigeon seemed to smile with its eyes. And an other Pigeon in the basked

After this beautiful inspiration Palma and Palmina went long along the green gardens and sometimes they heart an bird or a cicada or a tiny little mouse moving.

It was a beautiful »inspiration-walk« here on that island. All the monks are now sleeping in their monastery and there was no light in their windows any more. It was now very late and they went back to the Gondola with the shining lantern where the Gondolier was respectfully waiting.

Now the Gondola moved very slow to the neighbour island Giudecca where after a few meters the »Le Zitelle« Building was. Palma brought Palmina up to her flat in the 3rd floor and she played again on her lute for him and on her harpsichord like the Saint Cecilia. Palma made again some paintings of her and continued to paint on the white pigeon.

Later he asked her:
»Do you like the white Pigeon? Should I paint her like that in the future painting?…I will also paint a second Pigeon in a basked on that painting. The two Pigeons are we…The basked represents the Peony Gondala«

Palmina smiled and was lucky to feel connected with Palma’s heart.

Palmina sat on her little bed looking through her window to the San Marco Place, which is far a way but some lanterns are shining also in the night there.
Palma sat also on her bed. Palmina took Palma’s right hand and both looked long through the window.
Palma remembered her words about the virginity of Saint Cecilia and respected her.
»Do you know the love relation and legend between the unicorn and the virgin, Palma…?«

Palma smiled and looked to her side and he put his arm around Palmina.

Now they are sitting and Palmina’s little small bed, looking in the direction of San Marco Place at the Dogan’s Palace where still hundreds of candles are shining through the windows.
Yes, now they are sitting holding their hands like two little children who became deeply loving friends.

Palmina turned her smiling face to his side and she was lucky to have a loving friend like him – A loving friend that is understanding her deep spiritual secret.

»Look, I will also paint a clerical person looking like a pope with a white Pileolus on his head, looking from behind to the fresh born baby…Hmm, he looks as if this fresh born baby is his…«

»Oh…why that? …this is also a symbol of something real of our century…hmm, isn’t it, Palma? You always painted something from the present in your images…«

158. The big deal, the honour of three women and the saved friendship

And Palmina thought on Palma. Palma could feel it and smiled.
She touched in her thoughts Palma’s right hand and Palma could feel it.
Palma was lucky and smiled. In her thought at their Peony-hour Palmina gave Palma a little cheek kiss on his right cheek and Palma could feel it and smiled.

»My Du Liniang«, Palma said in his Peony-dream.
»My Liu Mengmei«, Palmina said to Palma in her Peony-dream.

Palma plugged on this Viola:

c – g- d‘- a‘

Palmina answered and plugged on her Lute:

A – D – E – a

Both smiled in the same moment.

Palma hugged her with his right arm. And Palmina hold Palma with her left arm.

»Now we saw two different visions…from two different moments«, Palma said.

»I remember,… that 2nd vision is nearly 11 years earlier then that first vision in 1593…«

»Oh, Palmina, my soft innocent Pigeon. I love you as you are…«
And in that moment they saw again a vision, sitting together in their soft seats of their Peony Gondola and they saw this:

* * *

Palmina was very sad that the priest did not like Palma’s artworks.
This day she went her way carefully to the Island Giudecca in Venice.

She took an other way with the Gondola so that she will not suddenly meet the priest on the streets of Giudecca.

At a little Pizzeria the restaurant owner greeted Palmina:
»Ciao, Palmina. Principessa, tutto bene? Fa bene? Are you ok?«

Palmina shows with her finger on her mouth that he should be silent in this moment.
»What’s up in Venice? Palmina, I heard that your father was seen in the city with an unknown women….«

Palmina stopped walking so fast and then she asked him:
»Porca Miseria! My father is back…!? After so much years….? Sure?«

»I did not see him but an other Pizzeria owner on San Marco Place said today he is back.«

»Hm? Mother did say nothing and at our bakery she was the whole morning alone. And was my brother also with him?«

»Mi dispiace, Io nolo so – I don’t know, Palmina…«

* * *

Palma il Giovane was now teaching in his Titian School and today was the open day for the public. The public was only on this day allowed to enter free this famous Titian-Art-School to see Palma’s famous students getting public painting lessons by him.

A lot of interested people from all over the world wanted to see how the students are getting teaching lessons by Palma il Giovane.

Palmina’s father said to a women: »Come, let us visit the Titian School. Let us see how the teaching painting lessons are. Normally no one can enter this famous Venice Palazzi…«

As they entered the big representative hall they saw Palma il Giovane teaching.

Palma said: »…And there is a beautiful legend here in Venice about a Lute player women, she was very beautiful and Titian wanted to have her playing for his painting school. And she played very beautifully. But there was a priest who did not want that. He went on one day to her father to talk with him secretly…«

As Palmina’s father heard that legend he was very nervous and the women beside him looked surprised at him.

»What is with you?«, she asked him.

* * *

In the meanwhile Palmina went slowly along the long Promenade on the little Giudecca Island in the direction to the „La Zitelle“.

There was a pure women on the house side sitting and opening her hand for something because she is poor and needy.
For a moment Palmina did not see the needy women.
Then her pure and friendly heart was stronger: She went back and gave to the needy women some of her fresh white fine breads.

Now she has something to eat.
The women was very thankful and Palmina made a little sigh and looked how lucky the women was to get such a good food, such a fine little bread, handmade and baked by Palmina’s mother.
She wanted to caress the head of the poor women and she smiled very lucky.

As she stood there Palmina heard the voice of two man from a window of the 1.floor of this house.
There are the rooms of the priests and a priest said:

»No thank you, we don’t buy any dark sugar from your institution. How often I told you: We do not make a business with the devil, your dark-sugar-earth organisation…«
»Oh no, father…today I want to tell you that a Millionaire asked me to ask you if you can make it possible that Palmina will not play Palma’s compositions in the next time, you know. Today he said you will get several millions of money if you can influence Palmina’s father to tell his daughter that he, her father, will finance her music career with his own money if she promise him that he will not play the compositions of Palma il Giovane in the next future.
And if he agrees then he also will get some millions and he can finance Palmina’s music career with that money. – Hm??«

For a moment the priest looked left, then right, if there is no one else here in this room.
»How much will I get? How much will Palmina’s father get?«
And the men from the church of the dark sugar earth social network whispered him some words.
»Ooooh, so much…I am sure this is enough money to make him agree. He will believe every lie for money. I will tell him some lies about Palma il Giovane. If a priest says that then he believes it for sure.«

* * *

»…and Master Titian was surprised that his Lute Playing Women did not come to the Titian school. But as he asked her why she should not play lute at the Titian school she answered Master Titian: „I am so sorry, but I had to promise my father not to play for you in the Titian School“ – „Why?“, Master Titian asked her. And she answered: „My father took a lot of money from a priest and he promised to take this money to pay for a big concert for me for a tour abroad, outside of Venice“, Palma explained to the painting students.

»And you can see that our big Master Titian had problems with a priest who did pay a lot of money against that connection.

And Palmina’s father started to shake nervous like he is afraid and suddenly he stood up from the seat and went straight ahead in direction of the exit of the big hall.
All the spectators looked surprised an started to whisper:

»Isn’t that the father of Palmina Albina, the best lute player of the Republic of Venice?«

»Look the baker from the Campo Bandiera e Moro is back from his Island…«

»Oh, whole Venice are talking about him…he left his wife because of an other wife from that island, isn’t it?«

»He left his wife and his daughter. He took with him his sun on that island…«
»And I heard he and his sun is member of the Church of Sec…how was the name?«
»Oh, yes, look, he has a new women with him…«
Palmina’s father was very nervous and wanted to go.
»Hm…the Chinese emperor had also several woman…«, Palmina’s father thought by himself.

He took the woman on his hand and tried to force her brutally to leave the hall.

»Let me, let me, I don’t want to be hurt by you again…Let me.. What are the others telling? You have a wife and a daughter? – What, YOU are still married with an other women – YOU LIER! – You hurt my feelings and my honour as women!!!«

And she gave him a loud slap in the face…«.

And the Venetian and Italian people are clapping with their hands:

»Bravi, bravi …amore! Give him another slap… He hurt two women’s heart and an innocent beautiful daughter…«
»Bravi.. Bravi!«
And there was a big applause in the big hall.
Palmina’s father run away.

The unknown women shouted loud behind him: »You lier!!! Porceria! Today I will find your wife and will tell her how cruel you have been to me…«
And she also went fast away and all people said »Bravi, Bravi…« and applauded.
A lot of whispering was in the hall and some said:

»Does the lute player made the concert tour with the money of that priest? And who was the talented young lady who played on Titian’s death bed in the year 1576?«

Palma smiled as he heart the question from the audience.

* * *

As Palmina realized what the priest and the man spoke, standing under the window, listening she realized also that the poor women stood up and was looking like a very, very beautiful Chinese women, with white cloths, like a saint.
She smiled and went slowly away.
Palmina looked behind her a little bit wondering.
Then she went up in the 3rd floor where she has her music teaching rooms at the la Zitelle.

After a few hours Palmina looked out of the window and saw down on the promenade her father speaking with a priest.
She listened carefully, not to be seen by them.
The priest and Palmina’s father does not know that Palmina has her three Windows to that Promenade.
Palmina shook her head and could not believe what she heard; what those both are speaking.

»Oh, no…my father takes money from the priest. Oh no, poor Palma il Giovane…
Oh, father left mother only for money. But I will stand with my lonely mother!
Oh, father payed a lot of money against Palma il Giovane’s artworks. But I will stand with Palma il Giovane!
Oh, the people are taking money to destroy the »La Zitelle« Institution and it’s girls choir and orchestra – I will stand with the poor ladies!«

* * *

And after they saw this Vision Palma said to her:

»Palmina that’s why we are here in our Peony Gondola.

We have to learn and to remember what in these years happened against our relation.

Especially around the year 1582.

It was not your father who supported your music career with his own money.
It was the money from the priest.
And the priest got the money from the members of the Criminal Security Organization, which is trying to destroy our Republic! Think on Cyprus-Island.

Your father took a lot of money from that priest who did not want that I compose for you and that you play for me on your lute.
The Peony Gondola will help us to understand what happened behind our backs.
To understand what people are doing for money.

They even lie to their own children, only to get some millions for their secret private life.
And as your father got the millions from the priest he left your mother and he left also you to go to that island, to start a new love with an other women.
Don’t forget that. Why you should not also have your own friendship with a famous artist?
He promised your mother to stay with her and what he did to her?
He started a relation with an other woman.
And the women did not know that he was married and has two children.
She thought that she is the only women loved by him.
So your father hurt the feelings of three women! The feeling of your mother, who supported his baker tradition with her family money, the feelings of the unknown other women and the feelings of you, Palmina.
You trusted him, you promised him not to play…
He is not the nice sugar-daddy that loves his daughter and is supporting her career.
You can not get his love back, what he did is not a »promise« worth.
He took the money from the priest to have a new secret life with an other women to leave your family in Venice.
He supported also the Church of Security, they maybe expected this from him, with its connections to the Dark Sugar Earth Social Network Administrators. They are erasing the letters of other people, they read the letters of other people, and they are selling the letters to those who pay for it. They sell dark sugar to little children so they also sell the children for men who want to be alone with them in a room.

It was our luck that some one from the Dogan’s Palace found out these crimes against children. There are world-wide protests against these Criminal Administrators of the Dark Sugar Earth Social Network. The Europeans founded in these days new commissions to avoid these crimes against privacy and to bring them now into prison. Today they arrested a few of them. The founder will have a big hearing in the public and all the people will hear what the crimes of this so called »Security Organization« are – Whole Venice is expecting the big trial against this criminal organization and all are expecting results against these crimes.

And it was also our luck that some one from the government of the Republic of Venice tried to repair our friendship with protecting the honour of the »La Zitelle« – Institution.
And it was our luck that they make it possible that you, Palmina, could see me officially daily at the Jesuits at the »Ospedaletto« where I painted during 10 years. These concerts were not supported by your father, but by the Republic of Venice. Your career was not at an end, it continued now in little fine concerts, playing for poor women, teaching poor children, and playing the openings of my painting presentations in famous churches of Venice, famous palazzi and also outside of Venice, which is a big honor. And only the best music artists can play for these events for the Republic of Venice. I arranged it also that your mother’s bakery gets more interest by the pilgrims for San SABA at Chiesa San Antonin. With my paintings of the life of San SABA the miracle was »Miracolo del fornaio«², the bakers-miracle…« was documented and the pilgrims had to come to this church and to eat the breads of your mother’s bakery.
So your family is financial independent from your father.«
Palmina cried a little bit because of the big shame of her father.

https://youtu.be/jN7tpvVgMS0

Her heart now understood that her father was not fair to her mother and to Palma and to the unknown other women. And now she understood that not her father supported her music career; it was only money against the relation of Palma il Giovane and Palmina Albina. And this was also not fair. How often he was violent to her and she was afraid from her father. With brutal violence he tried to force her to do after his will. What father did endangered Palmina’s place in the music history. But the miracle of the Peony Gondola saved all.
Now her heart understood that this was not correct.

He caress her head and hold her like a big brother, like a father, like a husband, like a good, old friend and a deeply loving soul.

»Oh, Palma you saved my music career and my honour! The big money deal between father, who was so violent and brutal to me, and the Organised Security, the „Security Organisation“ could have destroy our music-painting friendship and my position in the Republic of Venice. Thank you Palma, thank you Palma, you are a hero, you are my hero!«

And she gave him a tender cheek kiss and laid her head on Palma’s side.
And she heard how strong Palma’s heart is beating, beating for her.

This was a soft music: Yes, Palma is forgiving her, she is not responsible for her father. She was innocent and not knowing about the million money deal. Palmina, his big love, did not know that she was promising her father not to play a composition from Palma if he is supporting her music career with the money from a dangerous priest, a priest who gave him money for an other 2nd unknown women, to leave Palmina’s mother.

Yes, Palma is a very, very good music-painting friend. In good times and »in evil times…«

Now all misunderstandings had been cleared by the Peony Gondola.
(But our story is not finished; it is only an important moment of our story)
Now they can go their tender Peony-Gondola-Way, together.
Together, from Heart to heart, blessed by the heaven.

And both smiled and hugged, sitting in their soft seats of their Peony Gondola at 23 o’clock at 11 p.m.

Palma touched with his nose her nose and both smiled.
Palmina touched with her sweet nose Palma’s nose and they smiled.

And as they made this several times they looked like two Pigeons which love themselves with their heart, like pigeons who tender bill and coo.

And they heard the music »Peony Gondola Song« like this:

¹ the word »father« is also used if you mean a priest. In the Western tradition a Christian monk or priest is often called »father« not because he is a father of a child, because he is thought to be a spiritual father.

149. The secret common music dream

In their Peony-Gondola-Vision they saw this:

* * *

And as Palmina also laid down beside Palma il Giovane, in the nature, under the stars of Venice, on their secret little island, she looked up to the stars. Then she gave Palma a little kiss on his cheek during he slept, but carefully, not to wake him up…

The stars seemed to shine a little bit brighter and the silent red-orange Planet Mars seemed to be more colourful then ever.

Palmina whispered with a sigh: »Oh, my Palma, my composer and painter…«

And they dreamed now together a music and it was like that:

148. The Secret of the »Marco Polo Variation«

148. The Secret of the »Marco Polo Variation«

West_Lake

picture – West Lake in China

And both saw now during this little Mandolin solo a common Peony-Vision:

* * *

They saw Marco Polo sitting in a Chinese Chunk at the West-Lake together with his Chinese Princess.

Marco Polo is playing this »Spring Melody Hymn« and Palmina is sitting with him in the Chinese Chunk.
It is a very romantic atmosphere, here on the West-Lake.
She is looking very beautifully like an innocent Princess, smiling and listening to this Melody of the 8-Images *) Melody Marco Polo played on his Mandolin.

Palma, as Marco Polo, expressed his deep love to her with this Melody and was lucky to have her back in his life. She came through a Peony-Miracle***) suddenly back in his live. (see also the Miracle in the Chinese Opera »The Peony Pavilion« (Mǔdān tíng / 牡丹亭) **)


**) »The Peony Pavillion« (Mu Dang Ting) – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Peony_Pavilion

»[…] also named The Return of Soul at the Peony Pavilion, is a romantic tragicomedy play written by dramatist Tang Xianzu in 1598, and the plot was drawn from the short story Du Liniang Revives For Love. It depictes a love story between Du Liniang and Liu Mengmei, overcomes all difficulties, transcending time and space, life and death, and finally get together.«

***) A legend, told in Venice, says that Marco Polo’s Chinese princess came through a miracle back into his live as he took the Chunk over the West-Lake in China. A similar miracle like this is depicted in the Chinese Opera »The Peony Pavillion« / Mǔdān tíng 牡丹亭 – Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Peony_Pavilion


 

* * *

And also during this Melody they saw as Vision Palma il Giovane composing a »Marco Polo Variation« about this »Spring-Melody-Hymn«.
A Variation for Pipa solo, Viola solo and Harpsichord (or Organ, or 4 Flutes (S,A,T,B).

Palma felt so inspired from that moment as he saw Palmina the first time playing her Lute for his presentation at the Chiesa San Zulian.
Palma felt inspired as he spoke with her for 8 minutes after the concert on the 4th September in the year 1580.
She played so beautifully 40 minutes of his composition »8 Soli for Pipa« for his Speech in Venice with international guests of the Republic, that he felt thankful and composed this little »Marco Polo Variation«
as love-dedication for her.

* * *

After this beautiful Vision they looked long from their little island in the direction of Venice. They looked to the evening stars.
They hugged and spoke about their future music projects and Palmina started silently to sing the »Spring Melody Hymn«

»Sun, Moon, Stars, Wind and Weather, Water, Fire, Mother Earth,
Heaven, Water, Wood and Thunder, Lake, Fire, Earth and Mountain.«

Palma leaned his head on her, being a little bit tired.
Palmina felt that he worked hard, with painting, but what did him make so tired.»…did he compose something bigger for me?« Later he laid down and Palma felt asleep while Palmina caress his head tender, soft and slow.

Palmina observed him sleeping and smiled. »…like a little boy…«, she whispered

The little fire under the stars of Venice shined soft and made a warm light all over the little place in the nature. This golden light made Palmina’s smile very harmonic and beautiful. If Palma could see her he would paint her, but now he is sleeping.
A soft Wind breeze moved her beautiful hairs and moved Palma’s drawing-folder, beside her.
A second Wind breeze opened the folder and Palmina turned interested her head to the open folder.

Palmina wanted to close the drawing folder but she saw all the beautiful drawings Palma made of her in the last time.
She smiled. She looked on all his drawings. A lot of her are with lute – Venetian Lute and Chinese Pipa Lute. He painted her also in Asian traditional cloths, which he saw from the Chinese friends living now in Venice.
Then she saw some papers looking like a music score. She discovered 21 sheet of music score.

»Hm, what did Palma compose for me…? Oh a Marco Polo Variation…Like we dreamed in our Peony-Vision«

She looked at the music scores and tried to find out what these compositions are about.

The first four pages are the »Marco Polo Variations« as Pipa score and the next 17 pages are the same music as an Orchestral-Version for a lot of music instruments, but a little bit longer…

»…Oh, my Palma, my secret composer, it is an orchestral Version for a longer Music Piece… Ah, he puts the Marco Polo Variation into a bigger Composition so it is now for Pipa and orchestra. …Hm, hm…and this is a smaller music score, a so called »particell« – a part of a bigger orchestral music score hm…..Wow, how big is then the whole music score? I will ask him tomorrow….He needs his sleep now, my Palma…He wrote this »particell« for me, so that I can orientate and so I can rehearsal my Pipa Part in the whole music piece…ah, here are some Vocalists, he wrote for me the vocal parts, so I follow the score…«, Palmina thought.

Palmina was lucky about his creativity and she feels that she is the reason for that music, she inspired him and he composed secretly as surprise for this music.

Soft she kissed Palma several times tender, during he slept and Palma smiled and had a beautiful dream of an Angel bringing him spiritual food during he is painting and he saw the painting »Elia nutrito dall’angelo« he will paint once during his dream.

And the music scores she found were like that:

Palma was long very silent.

Palmina, sitting beside him in the Peony Gondola at 23 h (11 p.m.), she realized that and she thought on the beautiful high inspiring moments they had together…
»You are so silent in the last time, Palma…?«
»Oh, my beloved Palmina, my inspiration…
You are inspiring me so much, also now.
I am thinking always about you and me.
Signore Ridolfi is now coming in a few days to Venice.
He has interest to write a book about my live as artist or a longer biography about my live.
And he will listen to my speech in a few days in Venice.
I will tell also about the beautiful time as you played your Lute in the year 1574-1576….«
Palmina put her head on Palmas shoulder and then she kissed soft his cheek.
»Oh, Palma…You will really do that?
You will tell about me playing at Master Titian during he was painting at the very famous artwork ‚Pieta’…?«
»Yes, my Pigeon, my Inspiration, my deep love…
Do you want again to play your Lutes during my speech in Venice…?«
»Oh yes, Palma! I am so looking forward to play for your speech in Venice…«
Palmina’s cheeks went a little bit red being shy.
And Signore Ridolfi*) can not write all I will write it so that even the people in 300 or 400 years will hear about you, my inspiring Lute playing Angel…«


*) Carlo Ridolfi – Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carlo_Ridolfi
Carlo Ridolfi (1594–1658) was an Italian art biographer and painter of the Baroque period.

Ridolfi is Palma’s Biographer who printed the first biography of his live in the 17 century
»Le maraviglie dell’Arte ovvero, Le vite degli Illustri Pittori Veneti e dello Stato.«


And Palma put his strong arm around Palmina and he gave her a good hold and kissed also her cheek.
Palmina smiled and Palma smiled.

And now they continued to see their Peony dream and Vision and it was like that:

* * *

After Palma gave a copy of the music score to the moon princes all the beautiful moon princesses beside her looked and whispered.
»We want also to have some copies of Palma’s music score – we love his music…«
A little moon princes with a 2 year old girl-baby came and pointed to Palma il Giovane.
»Oh, look, she likes you, Palma«, Palmina said.
And as the little moon princess with her baby came near to Palma with his Mandolin the princess said:
»Dear Palma il Giovane, we heard you Organ playing here from the moon…
Can you play on our moon-palace-organ some music for us all?
This is was my little baby daughter princess wanted you to ask…«
Palma made a very respectful Venetian gesture in front of the little princess mother and her baby.
»Yes, It is a big honour to play for you on your organ here on the moon…«
And Palma went to the Organ which has not been played long time.
The moon princess whispered and said: »Ooooooh! An Organ Concert for us!«
»Palma looked into Palmina’s eyes.
»I am proud of you, Palma«, Palmina said smiling and sending him Inspirations from her heart to his heart and it felt so warm in his heart to get her deep love every evening at 23 h ( 11 p.m.)

And Palma sat down at the Organ and played some Inspirations like that:

140. Music for the moon palace

140. Music for the moon palace

Now they continued to see their Peony Vision at their 23 h ( 11 p.m.) and they saw this:

»You played so wonderful. Signore Palma il Giovane.«, Chang’e, the Moon princess said.
»He played so wonderful – he touched our heart« all the other princesses of the court said.
Palmina smiled.
»Also the composition for two instruments we could also hear here on the moon. Can you also give us a copy of the composition?« princess Chang’e asked.
»I can give the music score to our musicians on our court and we will play it every time when the moon festival is on earth and our princesses will dance to it with the beautiful cloth to express your composition, Palma, which came directly from your heart.«

picture – music score of »Mandolin solo at the Chinese Princess« (Variation I of Bird Hasun Melody)

»How wonderful you played. It sounds like a traditional Chinese and Venetian Composition… Welcome on our moon palace my dear guests and friends…«, said the Moon Princess.
»We never heart such a beautiful music surprise…. And Palmina played so fine the triplets fast but fine. No one can play like her. She is the best of the Republic. Palma, you can be proud to have her as your music partner and that she loves your compositions so much…You are sure the happiest composer in the world. I can see it on your smile«

»…thank you my princess. We feel very honoured that your majesty, our beloved moon princess, is loving our music performance. My composition is about the I-Ging natural philosophic image of WATER…and has a Moon-Melody composed after the 8 bars of the introduction«, Palmina answered very respectful.
Palma knows how to have good behaviour speaking with the moon princess. Yes, Palmina knows that Palma is her prince, the prince of Palmina.

There was also an ancient painting of the Trigramm, the Image of the old I-Ging Sign of the lunar WATER: 3 Lines, Ying-Yang-Ying (1 Yang-line between 2 Ying-lines).

Palma pointed to this painting at the wall of the moon palace.

»Yes, we know the I-GING Image of WATER, named K’an is associated to the spear of our sister MOON«, after the 5000 Year old Text of the I-Ging.«, a female princess from the court said friendly and the Moon princess smiled and nodded thankfully for her explanations.
»Oh,… and now, please play a Venetian love song…A love Song composed from heart-to heart…From a real loving composer…who wants to express his deep love…a romantic love song…like it was on the West lake in China in the Chinese Chunk as Marco Polo played a composition for his mystic Chinese princess, you Palmina, who came with him to Venice with 600 people from the Chinese court…with him, Marco Polo – Palma.

So often the loving pairs are kissing and looking to the moon during the moon festival…
…how often I can see them on earth looking up to me here on the moon…trying to see me and I bless them.
And I know Palma, you love Palmina. So it would be for me and all of us here on the moon palace a big honour to hear a Venetian love song. Play it for your beloved Palmina….Oh, please Palma….play a self composed love song on your Mandolin!«

All the princess on the moon palace nodded to each other and whispered meaning »this would be very nice…«

»Yes, Palma il Giovane, this would be very nice… play something self-composed for your love Palmina…«

Palma did not hesitate; he took his Mandolin and Palmina smiled and supported him with her friendly Venetian-Asian shining eyes.
He feels now strong enough to play his Love-song on the Mandolin here in-front of the famous Chinese Moon Princess.

Yes, she is very friendly and sends always her blessings to the really loving pairs down to the earth. She blesses the humans, not caring if they are Chinese or not. If they are old or young, rich or poor or even which tradition their culture is from.

Now Palma il Giovane who often painted mythological paintings with allegories about the moon deity is now here as honour guest of the moon princess with his beloved Palmina, and he will play his love-song here on the moon.

All the moon princesses looked expecting to hear an original Venetian-Love song here on the Chinese moon palace.

Palma, he looked good. He looked good with his typical Venetian cloth of the 16 century, was now ready to play his composition. He will play a little variation of the »Bird Hasun melody«, which the little bird composed for his little yellow female bird, which comes flying every morning to his cage in Venice at the window to listen his music for a while.
Palma composed a Mandolin solo from this melody and today he will make a little Variation of this Mandolin solo.

The Moon Princess was touched by his beautiful composition and dried with her long sleeve of her cloth two little tears from her left eye.

Also the little princess ladies from the court, standing and listening Palma’s Mandolin playing for Palmina were touched.
»How he loves his little Pipa princess…«
And they also had tears in their eyes and dried them with their long sleeves of their beautiful traditional cloth.
The servants brought silver tablets with little »Yuèbing«, with little Moon Cakes.

And after a little silent prayer they ate the moon-cake during they listened to
Palmas deep loving music composition for his heart princess.

The whole court of the Moon Princess Chang’e listened Palma playing full of Passion and love for his Palmina and it was like that:

And they did not stop hugging deep and tender and very heartfelt in their Peony-Gondola at 23h (11 p.m.)

»Palmina, you are my deep and only one love…«

»Did you know that as I was 12 years old and I was assisting as painting student at Master Titian at his painting »Transfiguratione« that I saw you the first time in my live?«

»What? As you where a young student at Master Titian…me?????«

»Yes, there was a female lute player playing for Titian’s painting lessons in the big church »San Salvador« *) there. And your parents went through the church and had a look at our students class to look at his painting. Your mother hold you as little baby and you pointed to the lute playing lady and then you pointed to me and you smiled so lucky and looked at me and I smiled back to you.
Your mum allowed me to hold you a few moments and it was so beautiful to hold you in my arms. I did not know that you will once be the young women who will play for my presentation of my new paintings in the »Chiesa San Antonin« church and the »Chiesa San Zulian« Church near the San Marco Place.
Holding you in my arms it was the same warm feeling as I hold you now In my arms, but now you are a young adult women and I love you…


*) San Salvador, Venice – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Salvador,_Venice

»The Chiesa di San Salvatore (of the Holy Savior) is a church in Venice, northern Italy. Known in Venetian as San Salvador, is located on the Campo San Salvador, along the Merceria, the main shopping street of Venice. The church was first consecrated in 1177 by Pope Alexander III shortly after his reconciliation with Emperor Frederick Barbarossa at nearby San Marco.[…]«

»Really,.. you hold me in your arms as you was a young student?«

»Yes, Palmina and there was a light beam from a top window of the church for a short moment coming to us both. Your mother smiled about this light.
And…you gave me a kiss on my cheek…and I was shy and my face was red being shy…I remember that the other students said in this moment ‚Oooh ..eterno amore..this is a big,big love… an eternal love…«

»Palma…this is really true…hmmmm?«, Palmina wanted to know.

»Yes, really this was told long time in the Titian School, but the students did not know who you are…
Only Titian looked long and very serious as if he was knowing that you, Palmina, will play the Lute during his last painting sessions during his last 3 living years before he died.

picture 3 -  Pietà by Titian (finished by Palma il Giovane).jpg

picture 3 – Pietà by Titian (finished by Palma il Giovane)

As the light beam came from heaven to you and me as I hold you as baby Titian felt that you are the artist who will play Lute for him in the last moments before he closed slowly his eyes in the year 1576. Palmina, Titian could feel the saint moment…«

Palmina smiled, but she was thinking about the music-art mission with Palma il Giovane and Titian.

»Titian really felt that I will be his Lute playing artist on his death bed as I was a baby?…Amazing!!«

»Yes, your mother knows that till today, Palmina. She feels that I love you and there was a magic between us both from the first encounter. She understood also that you like the sound of the lute…«

* * *

After a while of silence Palma and Palmina heard a beautiful Violin solo played during the glowing clouds on the heaven and it was like that:

130. The composing bird in the cage

130. The composing bird in the cage

picture 1 - La Zitelle is seen from Venice San Marco Place

picture 1 – »La Zitelle« is on the right side visible

»Purrr, purrr, purrrrrrrrrrr…«, made black-white cat Kalu after they saw this beautiful Peony-Vision.
Palma caressed the head of Kalu and Palmina also.

And they saw now this vision:

* * *

Palma il Giovane has finished his painting session in the famous »Titian Art School« and it was a sunny beautiful late summer day in September. His heart was now at Palmina. He will take the next Gondola to Giudecca Isola where Palmina is teaching her music students at the »La Zitelle« during the day. He went a little bit faster in the small street in Venice. Suddenly he heard a little bird singing very fast c-d-e-c-d and again c-d-e-c-d.

»Oh, how nice is this bird composing!…«

»C-d-e-c-d« and again »c-d-e-c-d« he tweeted.

Palma took a little piece of paper and wrote the notes on it: c-d-e-c-d

As he wrote, he suddenly observed that this little talented bird in the little wooden cage sung his melody for a little bird sitting in front at another window listening the little concert.

»Oh, the composer bird is singing for his big love, the female little yellow bird at the window over there….«

Palma was amazed and inspired by this composing bird.

Yes, Palma will see this scene every day there. Every day the free flying female bird came to the window to listen to the little talented bird in the cage.

Palma went now to take the Gondola to be in a few minutes at Palmina. Sitting in the Gondola Palma took his Mandolin and composed a variation of this melody c-d-e-c-d.

During these minutes driving to »Giudecca Isola« he wrote this melody, inspired by the little sweet bird and his love song for his little yellow bird.

»Sure they love each other secretly and very deep…«, Palma thought, during he is writing down his inspiration to the music score.

picture 2 - Bird Hasun Melody (Palma il Giovane).jpg

picture – music score »Mandolin solo – Bird Hasun Melody«

  And as he saw Palmina standing at the middle window, at the 3rd floor, on the left side of the building of the »La Zitelle« waving with her talented hand and holding her Pipa Lute he felt so much luck in his heart. He was sure today he will play for her like the little deep loving bird, who composed today on her mandolin for her.

As she came with her Lute and entering the Gondola Palma kissed her talented hands and Palmina smiled wordless and looked Palma into his eyes.
They started a little tour along the lagoon waters of Venice.

The Gondola took now her way to San Marco place where the Saint Marco Cathedral is.

»You composed something new for me, Palma?«, Palmina asked.

Palma took her talented hands and kissed them like saying »YES,
(kissing)
my Pigeon,
(kissing)
my little yellow bird,
(kissing)
my eternal love
(kissing)
…listen:

And Palma took his Mandolin and started to play during the Gondola moved in the rhythm of the waves and he played like that:

128. Tender walk under the stars of Venice

128. Tender walk under the stars of Venice

And they continued to dream their common vision in the Peony Gondola at 23 h (11 p.m.). They hugged and smiled and cat Kalu purred silently and friendly.
Now they saw this:

* * *

As Palma and Palmina made their walk for hours under the stars of Venice, suddenly Palmina said:
»Let us never stop to fight for our deep love, Palma….we can see us at the daily concerts, we can make walks, you can paint me as »L’Assunta«, you can give me your compositions for my daily new concerts… I will be a good music teacher at the »la Zitelle«… Venice gives our love the best opportunities… We are artists and we are inspiring each other…I will help you if you need me…Let me be your Pigeon till the end of our life and longer…. in hundred years… Yes, I will be your yellow canary bird beside and so we can see us 300 years earlier and then we can met us again with my Pipa lute on the bridge in 400 years…«

»My Pigeon…my innocent deer…you will be a good music pedagogue …and the poor young girls will need your lute playing and music teaching lessons like a MUSIC ART-THERAPY for the young poor girls…isn’t it?« Palma answered and Palma hugged and kissed her talented hands and her cheeks and her ears (very tender).

»…yes in hundred years also… Even you will be a yellow little canary bird« and he kissed her left and right cheek.
»…and yes we want to meet again in 100 years and in 400 years at the bridge…let us believe in our eternal love…I love you. Ti amo. Wo ai ni!«.

»Yes, my painter, my composer, once you will be a famous composer and I will be again your inspiration…«.

And as they walked along the »Giardino of Venice« in the south of Venice they came to the little bank in front of a stone statue where they sat the last time during Palma played his Mandolin solo for her. They sat down and looked to their left side to the stars.

They looked a long time at the stars:

picture 1 - view of SIRIUS-SOTIS (left) - Orion (Riegel-Beteilgeuze) - Aldeberan of the Taurus (middle) - moon-jupiter-saturn at Venice on the 5thSeptember 1583 in Venice at 3 a.m. in th

picture 1 – view of SIRIUS-SOTIS (left) – Orion (Riegel-Beteilgeuze) – Aldeberan of the Taurus (middle) – Moon-Jupiter-Saturn at Venice on the 5th September 1583 in Venice at 3 a.m. in the morning

»Look, the stars moved along the sky. Here left, the ORION had risen with Sirius-Sotis in the east…Aldeberan in the South…Moon, Jupiter and Saturn… Look Saturn seemed to move in the direction of the West-Horizon… «

»..Did he move in these hours?…The line between moon-Jupiter-Saturn is now not any more along the horizon and has moved in the West-direction 45° degrees to the horizon.«

»No, Saturn did not move so much within these hours… the whole sky with all its stars is moving from east to south and then to west. And so it looks as if they are moving »up« and »down«…«

»Oh, my Palma…you are not only my composer, my painter and writer…You are also my astronomer…Hmm?…«

And Palmina put her head on Palma’s shoulder and smiled right up looking to the stars.
Palma was lucky to be with her here in the Giardino in the south-part of Venice. He put his arm around her and gave her tender but secure hold.

Yes, Palma will be a secure hold for Palmina for the whole life. They are like to eternal loving Pigeons, they never let the other one alone.

The «Cicala» sung her tender and soft song now a little bit softer and slower. She sung since hours there »only for Palma and Palmina«.

Palmina and Palma had this thought in their same moment.

The moon shined strongly, so the light of their lanterns seemed to shine golden-orange and the moon shined like silver light.

The moonlight made Palmina’s amazing silver-light-blue-angel-winged metallic reflecting concert cloth shining in the moonlight on her skin and free shoulder.

It looked as if the stars are reflecting the moonlight around her neck like little diamonds on a decent necklace.

Palma loved her as she is, but her beautiful cloth is sooooo amazing. As painter he likes often to paint and to draw her with different coloured cloth.

Palma kissed her talented hands and their hearts spoke secretly with each other.
Palma kissed her cheeks and kissed her arms and hugged her and explained her the other stars.

»Yes. my Master, your little yellow bird has learned fast.
Pi – Pi -Pi -Pi – …«

»….Pa – Pa – Pa -Pa -Pa«

»Pi-…
»…pa.

(»Liuto-kiss«)

»Pi-
»pa.

(»Liuto-kiss«)

»Pi-«
»pa.«

(»Liuto-kiss«)

picture 2 - Aldeberan in the star sign TAURUS
picture 2 – Aldeberan in the star sign TAURUS

»You see this is »Aldeberan« of the »Taurus«

»Hmmm…«, Palmina made with her high, innocent, soft voice.

– Taurus is one of the 12 Astrological star-sign. and here are the two corns of the Taurus on the heaven – The lower star is named »Tianguan and the upper is Elnath«

»Tianguan*) sounds like a Chinese name? Tien is HEAVEN and Guan means GATE…?«
Palmina looked up to the star »Aldeberan« and thought about her and Palma’s common future here in Venice.

picture 3 - Aldeberan - Tianguan and Elnath in TAURUS

»In Chinese astronomy, Zeta Tauri is called 天關 [ Tiānguān ] meaning Celestial Gate«


Palmina was sure: Never she wants to leave Venice without her Palma il Giovane. Now she travelled along the world and now she knows what she really wants. To be with Palma means to be at home. This is where Palma is living, painting, composing, writing, smiling helping poor women and poor girls.

And after a while a little yellow golden light was visible between the bush.
Palma an Palmina looked searching from where the golden light was coming.

There was a light over the lagoon water coming from the south east direction directly to them.

»Isn’t it our….?«, Palmina asked like a little girl.

»Yes, this is our…«, Palma said surprised.

Now both said together: »Si, Certo…, Dui, dui…, this is our Peony Gondola!!!«

And the Peony Gondola came bright shining yellow-golden from the inner room of the Gondola and all around looked bright from the light of the Gondola.

Palma stood up and Palmina stood up. He took her hand and kissed her talented hand.

Palmina smiled like a little princess.
Palma made a gallant gesture of the 16th century and invited her to enter the Peony-Gondola.

picture 4 – »Peony Gondola Song« at Venice

And now both entered their Peony Gondola and the Gondola started to move soft and slowly and made a nice tour around the whole city of Venice and they heard the music of the »Peony Gondola Song« during this and they heard like that:
