The next morning Palma thought in the morning on his Pigeon.
He had intensive feelings and felt a warm connection from heart to heart with her.

Suddenly he heard in his heart Palmina playing a short Melody several time.

»Hm, I should write this Melody down…«

11 3- 22 44 3- 1-

»Well, I think this Melody Palmina played, in D- Major
then it is:

»…Maybe Palmina wants me to make some variations about this Melody?«

And Palma went this day to a little Organ and tried this Melody out on an little Organ in Venice (at San Zulian)

And after he finished it he felt a warm energy in his heart as if Palmina did listen this organ music also in this moments.

And later at 23 o’clock, at their Peony Gondola hour, in their cosmic Peony Gondola, they met again and Palmina looked innocent smiling but with ‚knowing‘ – eyes.

»Palma?«, she said observing Palma’s reaction but soft and very friendly.

»You played today for me on your Italian Organ…«

»Yes, Palmina, I did..«

»You played a Melody…
…this morning you thought on me very intensive and I felt all your thoughts and what you thoughts where about…and you kissed my hands in your thoughts…the golden light, you know…so I took my music instrument and played for you these few notes…«

»Several times?…«, Palma il Giovane wanted to know.

»Yes, Palma, several times…«

Palma showed her his manuscript:
Palmina Melody.jpg

»Oh, you revived this in your heart…«

Palmina smiled and shined and Palma was also lucky to receive her music from heart-to-heart.

The Peony Gondola was still on Planet Mars and they looked silent out of the Peony Gondola and were impressed to see the little so called „Adriatic Sea“ slowly moving down.

»…Palma?«

»Hmm?…«

»…Your uncle and his colleague, the physician, did survive the cosmic radiation and the other radiation on planet Mars because they stayed long in the bus and then at the base-camp…

But, but why didn’t both come back to earth?«

»…Oh, that’s a long story…
The physician felt not strong enough and he stayed after medical analysis: that if he comes to earth he will die much faster than if he will stay on Mars….and he can make all the scientific research staying at the base camp…«
»So…why your uncle came back and did not stay with him on Mars…«
»Oh, yes, he wanted to bring all the material, the photos and films, also the film of the landing and flying with the dragon fly over Mars, which they made there and the text papers and all scientific material to earth.
He came for 2 reasons:

First the earth should be warned that a Man mission will be too difficult in the future until the Mars surface is not replanted with plants by automats…

The second reason and most important reason: He wanted to see my mother and all his brothers and sisters back at earth – even he will die sooner then his colleague on Mars…It was medical fact that if you return to earth then the body is too week to survive more then one year…but to see us again…yes… this was worth he said and: he could tell us this story to our family…later he could communicate with each other by using wireless radio message (which Nicola Teslar invented²) sending radio-message as written text between Planet Earth and Planet Mars. (A=01 B=02 C=03…)«

»Oh, fine, my Palma, my writer, my painter, my composer, my deep love!!!

…and it will take 800 years after intensive re-planting this planet to make it possible for man to visit planet Mars…«

»But we both – you and me – can meet us anytime on Mars with our Peony Gondola…«

»Yes, our dreaming Gondola, the place of our common dreams, the place of our heart…«

And the Peony Gondola started again to fly over the surface of Mars to show them a lot of landscape of Mars.

And Palma stared to made fast drawings all he saw and he painted Palmina shining in golden-light color and it was as if the time stopped and was running slower and both smiled at each other and they listened to Palma’s 8th music creation „Mars Suite – part 8″

Palma smiled – Palmina smiled…

And they continued to dream their Peony-Gondola-Dream and they saw this at 11 p.m.:

* * *

And the Choir and the Musicians continued to make music during the feast mass in the San Marco Cathedral in Venice.
Palmina smiled from the music-gallery on the left upper side down to Palma who is very lucky to see her and to hear her performing his artwork.

The famous Cardinale Borromeo listened to Palma’s music compositions very interested.

»He is not only painting very good, he is also composing sacred music…Why a so famous painter of Venice, like Jacopo Palma il Giovane is composing this music…?
Hm, maybe he is in love and he is composing for a women to express his love for her… Composing for love…So beautiful…
Maybe a music dedication to a musician like the Lute Playing Girl? Or it is a dedication to Emperor Rudolf II or also a dedication to me? Hm, interesting, interesting… Yes, yes, I learned now something from him: Music will save the world once… I am sure! Palma is right – Palestrina, the famous composer in Rome; I have to order that he has to compose a Holy Mass for Rome! – That’s a good idea, Palma…«, Cardinale Borromeo was inspired to hear that music and was silently thinking.
And they heard also the »Benedictus« which was sung by Mihaela, Palma’s talented cousin, and she was very lucky and she smiled and smiled as she wants to jump of luckiness in the air because she is the first Mezzo-Soprano to perform this music in music history. Palmina played the Lute-part (it can be played also by a Pipa lute).

* * *

* * *

And as they listened this music in their Peony Vision Palmina smiled and looked into Palma’s eyes.

And they saw now this in their Peony Vision:

* * *

Palmina had a big success in the San Marco Cathedral and in order to that she got an official Invitation to play with the »La Zitelle Chamber Orchestra«, the LZCO to have a concert in Vienna, Austria, the city of music.

But that means again an new sponsored concert tour.
But sponsored by whom? Who gives so much money to lead again Palmina out of the Republic of Venice? And again Palma can not see Palmina for a long time. What a pity!

Palma was lucky that his »Benedictus« was a big success in Venice, also for Palmina, but it means also that Palmina is on concert-tour for long.

She will not be in the morning at the little fine bakery store to sell mothers fine fresh little Venetian breads and to meet Palma there in the morning to smile for him.

And for her: It means not to see Palma painting in the San Antonin Church and not to play for him at the scaffolding.

It means also not to see her in the little atelier at the »Fondamenta dei Furlani« House Nr. 3291« where Palma paints during Palmina is playing for hours for him to inspire him.
It means also for them: Not to see each other at the beautiful Garden of »Giardino«. Not to speak to each other. Not to write to each other (As long the criminals of the dark sugar earth Administrators are not arrested by the Republic no letter will be un-stolen by them).

But they have the Peony Gondola !!!

* * *

Today Palma will finish his famous painting »La Pieta« and Palmina will play the last day before she is invited to travel to Vienna, to give a concert for mighty Emperor Rudolf II, the emperor of Austria.

picture - La Pieta by Palma il Giovane (See also »Lacrimosa« by Gerald Spitzner
picture 2 – »La Pieta by Palma in Giovane«

»Palmina, you played so beautiful here in my little atelier… Your little sweet compositions for me are so amazing. I love you Palmina!
He laid his paint brush to the side and looked a last time on his finished painting.
Palmina said: »Well done, Jacopo Palma il Giovane. You painted me also wonderfully with my red concert cloth and with golden hairs like on Master Titians »Pieta«.
And Palma took Palmina’s talented hands and kissed her carefully several times.
»And I have to thank this talented hands that they played over 40 minutes music for me now. Thank you my Pigeon.«

»Oh Palma, its ok. I like you Palma, you know, it makes me lucky to inspire you and to help you to go your way here in Venice.«.

»Yes, my pigeon, my inspiration, my deep love.«
Palma kissed her arms several times.
Now they are the last time alone and they hugged deeply and tender and long.
Yes, after today’s invitation at the Giudecca Island, and they will go there, there where the gardens of the Chinese friends are, there where the members Family of the Ming Dynasty are living, after that concert they will not be alone. Tomorrow Palmina will leave Venice for a long time to travel to Vienna with the »La Zitelle Chamber Orchestra« to make it famous in Europe.

Today they will meet at afternoon tea time at the Chinese Ming Family, with princess Lin and all the famous artists of the Ming Dynasty who survived the military attack against the Ming in the year 1583.
Maybe in later years, at peaceful times, they can go to China an live there as artists with big honours.
Today there will be a friendship concert – for a friendship between the mighty Republic of Venice and family members of the Ming-Dynasty.
The Chinese musician will play traditional Asian Music and the La Zitelle Chamber orchestra will play European and traditional Venice music pieces.
Today they can speak with Master Lao, who is a wise old man who can tell them some of his Visions he had last night.

mnigPalma and Palmina, after they hugged and kissed full of sympathy and love, they went both along the »Fondamenta del Furlani« along the San Antonin Church, along the big place »Campo Bandiera e Moro« to visit mum in the bakers shop, to get some fine fresh breads, to go along the »Calle de la Pieta« in the direction to the long Promenade »Riva degli Schiavoni«.
They went slowly along the clear sea water in the south direction to the famous »Giardino« garden.
There was also the bank to sit in front of the statue and they sat down again like on other important days in their life.
Palma hugged her. He kissed her on her cheek. She smiled but both were silent and they know, these are their last hours to be alone together.
How often they sat here on this bank and looked to the stars. How often they drove with the Peony Gondola to the Moon-palace to visit the Moon Princess Chang’e and how often they visited planet Mars to great the Mars princess there in their common Peony-Dreams.
Yes, their dreams are sometimes more real then some real days which seems to be sometimes unreal and hard.
How much people died in the last century in Venice on the pest… 30 precent of the people died in Venice. Therefore the Venetian Republic build the »Chiesa Il Redentore« Church on Giudecca Island as »thank you« for surviving that hard time and the Republic ordered also paintings by Palma il Giovane for that beautiful Church.

¹ »Chiesa Il Redentore« – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Il_Redentore

»Il Redentore was built as a votive church in thanksgiving for deliverance from a major outbreak of the plague that decimated Venice between 1575 and 1576, in which some 46,000 people (25–30% of the population) died.«
»Il Redentore contains paintings by Francesco Bassano, Lazzaro Bastiani, Carlo Saraceni, Leandro Bassano, PALMA IL GIOVANE, Jacopo Bassano, Francesco Bissolo, Rocco Marconi, Paolo Veronese, Alvise Vivarini and the workshop of Tintoretto. «

* * *

Exactly this thoughts were also spoken at the friendship concert at the Gardens on Giudecca Island where the Chinese People are living under the protection of the Republic of Venice.

»…and we also are thankful for surviving the pest and also the attacks by the dark sugar earth network here in Venice like you, my Chinese friends, you also survived the war attacks of the Qing Dynasty, who will now own whole China for a long time. So we are thankful for your invitation and your beautiful friendship concert…«, Cardinale Carolus Borromeo continued to speak:
»…and we can announce that there will be a charity concert in Vienna against child-prostitution by our La Zitelle Chamber Orchestra and if some of you will come with them to Vienna to see this beautiful old city and to listen our concerts there the Republic of Venice will send a lot of Bodyguards to protect you during your travel. Palmina Albina, our best Lute player will have 6000 Varanguards to protect her during her concert travel to Vienna…«.

And all spectators applauded here in the big wild gardens of Giudecca-Island.
The buildings and gardens are surrounded by walls and a lot of Soldiers are protecting all entrances: Chinese Soldiers in traditional Ming-Dynasty-Uniforms and Venetian Soldiers, and also some Varanguards for Palmina are standing to protect them all.

* * *

The afternoon concert went very well. Palmina played also a solo composed by Palma and a solo composed by Palmina on her lutes.
After the concerts a lot of Chinese servants brought fresh cooked Chinese traditional food, some specially adapted for the European taste.

Palma went to the stage to see Palmina and he asked the musicians if he can try out the traditional Asian Instruments.

»Oh, you know how to hold a traditional Pipa¹ lute and to make a few tones…?« a very young Chinese musician in white traditional Asian cloth said friendly smiling.
She allowed him to play on her Pipa and Palma played and (he tried it) played.
»Thank you, Xie Xie«, Palma said smiling after he played (tryed) a long time
Later Palma tried the traditional GuZheng² instrument and made some tones.
»Oh, that’s interesting…I would like to learn to play…«

¹ Pipa – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pipa
² GuZheng – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guzheng

The musician smiled and said »Signore Palma il Giovane, you painted us so beautiful in the last years here in Venice. If we can take painting lessons from you, here in our gardens we would feel very honoured. If you like, our talented princess can teach you and show you the secrets of our Asian culture and arts, especially of our music. They would love to explain you how this instruments are played. And…, and if you like you can write some music for our little Ming-Dynasty-Orchestra…«
And Palma was surprised for this friendly invitation.
»Palma, say yes! This is a big honour…!«, Palmina said.
Palmina was 2 years in China at the pacific island and learned not only the language a little bit, she knows how Asian people are fealing inside their heart.

»During I am in Vienna you will be here with the Ming Dynasty Family, here on that little beautiful secure Island in our Republic.«

Palma made a big sigh because he will miss Palmina and agreed to that big honour of cultural exchange.
Yes, Palma wants to learn about Asian cultures. Palmina lived on that Pacific Island for years. It is now a part of Palmina’s live and experience. He wants to understand this because he loves her.
»Yes, we have to learn from each other. The East from us West and we, West from your Eastern traditions.«

The little musician in the white beautiful cloth said: »Marco Polo was a Venetian and he married a Buddhist nun, a real Chinese Princess and lived here on that Island with her, the Chinese legend is telling.«

And as he saw that her eyes shined very beautifully Palma begun to study her eyes to be prepared to paint her and to teach her and to give her painting lessons in the future.

»I see you both are understanding very well, hm?«, Palmina said and hoped that Palma will manage now the time without her here in Venice.

»And..and…can I have some Violin lessons by your mother…Xíng ma?« the little Chinese Princess asked innocent and hoped that Palma will say yes.

* * *

The beautiful and ceremonial afternoon transformed into a long evening with lanterns – Chinese lanterns and Venetian Lanterns – with Chinese music and Venetian music from the 16th century.

It was a little fine feast and all enjoyed it but Palma did know that if Palmina will now go to Vienna with her orchestra and some Chinese delegation Palma will be again lonely for a long time.
Again it is a sponsored concert tour. Will Palma again have to wait on Palmina for years?

* * *

And after they saw this Peony-Vision at this 23 o clock time (11 p.m.) they dreamed what they say today at the »Giardino«-Garden. Palmina and Palma remembered this and they saw this in their Peony Vision sitting together now at the Peony-Gondola:

* * *

Today they saw a white Pigeon at the Giardino of South Venice and the Pigeon landed on a leave.

dav

picture 3 – white pigeon

In their dream the Pigeon spoke to them with a soft voice:

»Dear Palma and Palmina! Be careful the next time! The Criminal Church of Security took money from the Administrators of the Dark Sugar Earth Network to make an attack to you. Don’t go alone on the streets of Venice. Stay at the Chinese Family at their gardens. For a while the Titian Art School should take place there. Till the secret service of the republic found out and arrest the criminals of the international child-prostitution network stay at them as long as you can. There are good security Elite-soldiers protecting you. Chinese Soldiers and Venetian Soldiers and Varangian Guards¹!«


¹ Varangian Guard -Wikipedia –
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Varangian_Guard

»The Varangian Guard (Greek: Τάγμα τῶν Βαράγγων, Tágma tōn Varángōn) was an elite unit of the Byzantine Army, from the 10th to the 14th centuries, whose members served as personal bodyguards to the Byzantine Emperors.«


Palma and Palmina looked surprised to the white speaking pigeon.

»And you Palmina, be careful: One of the Bodyguards is a FAKE BODYGUARD and he is paid by the international child-prostitution-network of the Dark Sugar Earth Dealers. He wants to isolate you and destroy your concert-career in Vienna. He has orders not to allow cultural exchange with the famous artists of Vienna so that no one will know your name as lute player in music history. Don’t trust him, don’t eat his dark sugar earth. He cancels your artist contacts and meetings without your permission! And don’t be alone with a man or a fake priest (an »Ostary³« which wears false priest cloth). The false Bodyguard will try to isolate you the whole concert in order to destroy your future music career. Don’t be alone with any man in a room also if this bodyguard said that this is expected from you otherwise you will loose your position as solist. Order always two, listen: two soldiers to protect you: A Chinese Soldier and an European Soldier. Good luck Palma and Palmina. Groo, Grooooo.«.

³ »Ostiarius« – Wikipedia – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ostiarius
Is NOT priest, »In the Roman Catholic Church, this „porter“ became the lowest of the four minor orders prescribed by the Council of Trent. This was the first order a seminarian…«

dav

picture 4 –  starting white pigeon

After that the white Pigeon started to fly high in the heaven and was not seen after a while.

dav

picture 5 – heart leave

As Palma looked down to earth he saw that old leave.
It had a tiny hole like a heart.

»The white Pigeon showed us to find this symbol of an old, old, old love, my Wang Chun chao – my Marco-Polo Princess, My Du Liniang, My Palmina, my white Pigeon.«

Palmina laid her head on Palma’s beating heart and Palma reacted with putting his strong arm around his little Palmina Albina.

She thought also on the old vision of the little yellow canary bird in the wooden cage who will inspire the most famous composer of Europe to do his artwork in over 100 years.

And they heard now this mystic music:

Palmina was proud about his Palma, that he can play the organ on the moon palace of the moon princess Chang’e without preparations.

All the moon princesses and also the little 2 year old moon princess baby of the little moon princess mum gave a fine applause on the moon palace.

»Oh, Signore Palma il Giovane can you play again the organ solo for Palmina’s birthday which you played so full of love for your beloved Palmina….? We heard it once here on the moon as you played it in Venice for her birthday.«

Palma looked smiling a little bit questioning in Palmina’s direction.
Palmina smiled and she could read in his heart and his heart asked Palmina »should I…?«

Palmina send him again so much love from her heart to his heart that he felt strong enough to play the Organ solo for Palmina which was dedicated for her birthday.

»Oh, fine, master Palma will play for us the happy birthday organ solo for Palmina…« all the fine moon princesses with beautiful traditional Chinese cloths whispered decently.

Palma prepared the organ with switching the registers on that moon palace organ and played after a moment of silence like that:

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.«

139. »Mandolin solo at the Chinese Moon Princess«

139. »Mandolin solo at the Chinese Moon Princess«

2018-09-28 »Mandolin solo at the chinese princess« (Variation I of Bird Hasun Melody).jpg

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:

picture 1 – Moon princess Cháng’é 嫦娥 on her moon castle with musicians (left)

Now they continued to dream their common »Peony Vision« and they saw this:

* * *

»Oh, your composition for two Instruments is so beautiful Palma! It is like a MUSIC MOON CAKE. Your heart, Palma, composed it especially for me to show your love and to give me a spiritual music present from heart-to-heart«, Palmina said and she hugged him and she gave him a kiss on his nose.

»I am proud of you, Palma!«

Palma smiled very, very lucky about her direct spontaneity.

»Can you write it down for me and transmit the music score to me so that I can play it also in my concerts?!… Transmit it via the Peony Gondola so that the ‚Church of Security‘ and the ‚Church of Control‘ can not destroy our eternal deep music love and relation…«

»Yes, I will give you the music score as soon I have written it to a music score. You can play it as composition for VIOLIN AND VIOLA or as composition for PIPA AND VIOLA…like you want to use it…I give you the permission, my sweet princess, my deep old love, my pigeon, my inspiration…«

»Thank you, my composer, my painter , my philosopher and girls protecting unicorn, and…and my secret love-story writer…
Palma,….
Is it also possible to play it with 2 Pipa lutes?…«

»Oh, yes you can play the Viola part also as 2nd Pipa part. Why not? You can play it with princess Lin, she is also playing the Pipa…or her relatives from the Ming dynasty. The female princess learned all to play the traditional Pipa.«

»Fine, Palma. Oh, look….«, Palmina pointed at the moon to a big building.

»…here is the beautiful castle of the moon princess… Look they invite us to come on their castle…Can you see there the moon princess dancing princess ladies? They are dancing as ‚welcome‘ for us…«, Palmina said exited and she took Palma’s hand.

Palma smiled and felt that NOW is the moment to hold Palmina with his arm, to give her a good hold, to give her the feeling to be protected by him and his strong arm.

»Yes, Palmina, they seemed to dance only for us both as welcome gesture. – Look, at this beautiful traditional Asian/Chinese cloths! And look, how beautiful they are moving…! It is like an ancient Chinese painting. Oh, I want to paint them all! These beautiful princesses…«, Palma said excited.

»Yes, they are very beautiful. You have to draw them. But Palma…? Don’t look too much at them…You are my prince…hmmmm?…«

»Yes, my princess…I will only look at you long time…In our Peony Gondola…my byzantine Eurasian princess«

And they heard a very beautiful Chinese orchestra music like it was often to hear at the gardens in Venice, where Princess Lin is living with her family members in Venice.

Slowly the Peony Gondola entered the area before the beautiful pink white castle.

In the gardens of the moon princess the dancers where dressed in the same pink(magenta)-white colours as once the dancers of the Chinese delegation were dressed.

The dances also with Peony-flowers (Peony Rose) which are shining with pink coloured light.

It was so aesthetic that Palma said to Palmina: »Very beautiful, very beautiful! Look, this dancing group is also dressed in the byzantine-chinese style like once in the Dogan’s Palace as the Chinese People gave you the Pipa-Lute as friendship-present by their asian culture.«

»Oh, yes, this is amazing! Exactly the same dressing style and also the magic pink shining Peony flowers…«, Palmina also reflected to Palma’s words.

Slowly the Peony Gondola decreased the moving speed and stopped at the steps of the big entrance of the pink-white shining moon castle.

»Hmm, they are so friendly here to us. We have to make also some music for them. A thank-you-concert.
How about your compositions for Venetian Lute, Mandolin and Pipa Lute? As cultural exchange between Venetian and Chinese Culture?«, Palmina said like a music teacher.

»Fa bene, principessa…Dui,dui,dui…Wode Xinaide Gongzi…Let us play the 2nd Pipa solo in version for Pipa and Viola…«

»This is a good idea, my Palma… Your music piece describes the atmosphere of the lunar world of the natural-philosophical image of the I-Ging WATER! I love to perform your creations so much, Palma..«

Now she gave him a tender cheek kiss, looked observing in his eyes, as she saw that his eyes shined happy she smiled heartfelt.

»Fine.. Palma, let us give them a little concert as greeting from the mother earth…I play Pipa lute, representing the Asian/Chinese culture and you play the Viola part, representing the Venetian European Culture…Oooooh, I am so looking forward to give a little concert with you: YOU AND ME. Here on the moon-castle of the lovely moon princess all are loving so much!«, Palmina said so lucky like a little Chinese princess and her eyes are beautifully small looking beautifully like Asian eyes. (It Is Palmina’s secret looking sometimes Venetian and sometimes Asian)

Palma helped Palmina to come out of the Peony Gondola and helped her to go up the steps: step by step and Palmina followed Palma: step by step. From lower level to higher level.

As they entered the castle they looked at the beauty of the architecture – It was like in a dream.

»Palma?«

»Hmmm?«

»Am I dreaming or are we really on the moon castle of the famous moon princess?«

»We are really in our Peony-reality…All we are dreaming together in the Peony Gondola is real. It is our deep and tender love… As long we are loving us, we are together in this Peony Gondola.«, Palma said very wise.

Do the other stars like Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, the Fixed stars, and the Primum Mobile also have such castles with princess?…«

»Hm, good question…I think so…Dante writes it in his love declaration to his beloved Beatrice… I think he was there and wrote also about this…«, Palma answered like an old wise master.

And now they saw the beautiful moon princess with her beautiful cloth in Chinese Asian style.
She also looks Chinese and sometimes she looks European.

»Fascinating!«, Palma thought.

The Moon princess welcome them and the dancers of the court danced several beautiful welcome-dances. The Chinese orchestra played Chinese music and some well known Venetian European tunes of the 16th century.

As they finished their performance Palmina and Palma played with Pipa lute and Viola like that:
