Beauty in the Dark

For the visually challenged reader, this image shows a bank of nimbostratus clouds refracting the setting sun, which gives it a grayish-red hue. This is reflected in the water below it.

Alessia was going through a tough time in her life. She had lost her job, and her father had fallen seriously ill. She was feeling sad and without joy. One day, she decided to go for a walk on the beach to clear her mind. While she was there, she noticed a bank of dark clouds in the sky that looked scary at first, but then she noticed how beautiful they were with their shades of gray and blue blending together.

As the sun set, the clouds reflected a stunning grayish-red color in the water below. This made Alessia realize that even in tough and dark times, there is still beauty to be found. From then on, she didn’t just look for positive things in life but rather made a conscious effort to seek them out. She focused on appreciating the beauty around her, even when life was difficult, and made a habit of finding joy in the small things. This new mindset helped her to stay positive and hopeful, even in the face of adversity.

With her new mindset, Alessia found a new job and was able to care for her father, who recovered from his illness. She had learned to appreciate the beauty in the world, and this helped her to stay positive and find hope in difficult situations. From then on, Alessia was able to face the challenges of life with a new perspective, knowing that even in the darkest times, there is always something beautiful to be found.

Reverie#TankaTuesday  No. 312

Our host this week is Colleen M. Using the painting as inspiration, write either a syllabic poetry form or a freestyle poem, and feel free to include a syllabic form in your post.


Le Jardin de l’artiste à Giverny
English: The Artist’s Garden at Givernyhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Artist%27s_Garden_at_Giverny

Rows of irises sway,

Bathed in Monet’s color play,

Spring’s symphony sung.

Dappled light dances through trees,

Nature’s canvas, art that breathes.

The tanka above follows a 5-7-5-7-7 syllable structure, which is a traditional format for tanka poetry. However, it is a contemporary tanka, which incorporates modern themes and imagery while still adhering to the syllable count. The poem vividly describes the beauty of Monet’s garden with language such as “sway,” “color play,” and “symphony,” while also emphasizing the importance of nature as an ever-changing art form that breathes life into the world.

Pure joy takes over, all night we’ll play.

My Grandma’s Dialect

“My grandma’s dialect was a catalyst for introspection, encouraging me to reflect on the cultural influences that have shaped my own identity. Her dialect remained as steadfast as rain-beaten stones. Her way of speaking was a symbol of the equinox, where the old meets the new, reflecting the awakening of a new era. Each phrase and expression that she used was like a renewal, breathing new life into old traditions and customs. Her dialect was a precious gem, filled with cultural knowledge and wisdom that had been passed down from generations. It was through her language that I gained a deeper appreciation for the diversity and richness of human experience.”

My 2 wishes #Truthful Tuesday- 14th March

Di, the host of Truthful Tuesday, has presented us with an intriguing question. According to her prompt, if I were to receive two wishes due to some inexplicable quirk of fate, what would I choose to wish for?

If I were granted two wishes, my first would be to retrieve my lost engagement ring that I lost on my wedding day. It was the most precious possession that my husband gifted to me, I would do anything to have it back on my finger, shining and reminding me of the beautiful memories of that day.

Though I have tried all possible ways to find it, it seems to have vanished into thin air and it seems like it’s just a wish that will remain unfulfilled. However, I have learned to cherish the memories it holds and the love it symbolized. That ring will always hold a special place in my heart, lost or found.

My second wish would be to never leave the school where I used to teach. It’s been my home away from home, and I cherish the relationships I’ve built with my students and colleagues. This wish would allow me to continue making a positive impact on their lives and grow as an educator in a place where I feel appreciated and valued.

Rory’s- Dawdler 03/09/23

Rory has posed some additional questions for us to answer.

Have you ever watched a long-running televised series from start to finish, and once you have reached the end, you wanted to watch it again or is once enough for you and time for a new long-running series?

My husband and I watched all 8 seasons of Game of Thrones and quickly became invested in the complex storyline and characters. After finishing, we discussed the plotlines and characters for weeks, re-watching scenes for a deeper understanding. We particularly enjoyed the character development and relationships throughout the series. While we haven’t re-watched it all, we have revisited certain episodes or clips. Overall, Game of Thrones is a captivating show worth watching more than once.

Do you think traditions are essential to society – if so, why and if not, why not?

Traditions can be good, but not all of them are helpful. Some traditions can be limiting and unfair, especially if they’re based on old-fashioned ideas. Sometimes, people use traditions to keep others down or justify unequal treatment. It’s important to think about whether a tradition is really helpful or not. By doing this, we can create a fairer and more equal society where everyone is included.

What would be easier to throw away deep love or deeply lined rich pockets – flipside – can money buy love?

When it comes to choosing between deep love and a fat wallet, it’s like comparing apples and oranges – both have their own unique appeal. While some folks may prioritize financial security and the perks that come with it, others may find nothing more valuable than a profound emotional connection.

As for whether money can buy love, it’s unlikely that throwing wads of cash at someone will make them fall deeply and madly in love. Sure, money can make life easier and open doors to new experiences, but it can’t replace the warmth and intimacy of a genuine and long-lasting relationship.

That being said, it’s true that having a healthy bank balance can make one more attractive and open up opportunities for meeting new people. But let’s be real – true love can’t be bought or sold like a commodity. It’s an organic process that takes time, effort, and a whole lot of mutual understanding, respect, and shared experiences to flourish.

Rory asks more interesting questions of us

How long will you be remembered for once you are no more?

As a parent, I find comfort in knowing that the impact I have on my children’s lives will extend beyond my time here on Earth.

It’s not easy to balance a career and raising kids, but I did my best. I worked hard to take care of my children and prepare them for success in life.if anything were to happen to me, I know that my children will always remember the sacrifices I made for them during their formative years. They will carry the lessons I taught them and the love I gave them for the rest of their lives.

As the saying goes, time flies when you’re having fun, and the same applies to raising children. It’s hard work, but it’s also incredibly rewarding. Even though I may not be around forever, I take comfort in knowing that the impact I have on my children’s lives will last a lifetime.

Considering that only 5% of the world’s oceans have been explored and charted, what do you think lurks in our world’s hidden and unknown waters?

The oceans cover a big part of the Earth and if only 5% has been explored This means there is a lot we still don’t know about what’s living in the water. It’s possible that there are creatures that are much bigger or more dangerous than what we’ve seen before, and some have evolved to live in really harsh environments. There could also be places in the ocean that we don’t even know about yet, and exploring them could help us understand more about how our planet works. Overall, the ocean is a really interesting place for scientists to study and there are probably a lot of new things waiting to be discovered.

Are soul mates a real thing?

Absolutely, I have a mate who is my better half, my soul mate, and the apple of my eye. He completes me in every way imaginable and we share a bond that is as strong as iron. Some may say that finding your soul mate is like finding a needle in a haystack, but I feel like I hit the jackpot when I found my husband and I truly believe that fate brought us together. We were two peas in a pod from the moment we met and it was love at first sight. They say that love is blind, but in our case, it was a match made in heaven.

thank you Rory for the beautiful questions
