And there was night and there was day ~

A Story by Marianne

Some days assume the cloak of darkest night, when the moonless sky frowns with an ice-cold stare at the merriment of people without a care. My soul's anguish devours their laughter. Past pain, long buried, rises from the shallow ground, seeking life inside a room without a view, and a door locked tight.

Some days light up the fragrant air, when I inhale fresh Frangipani blooms, dream of white Magnolia petals, and walk on blue Jacaranda carpets above evergreen earth. The sun stands still, caressing every step I take, while shadows hide from her sight. Gentle music opens the chambers of my heart, every note dances to the rhythm of my enchanted mind.

She lives another day.

ahh magic descriptions indeed! the sense of freedom in some of the lines - the unlimited boundaries of nature - to twist between the greens and colours! heart opening like a flower to embrace the rhythm and cadence of the tune - so nice!! nice to see new stuff from you!!

I adore your metaphors and phrasing here, especially how a moonless sky frowns! You actually brought the dark feeling to life in characterization with your style. And then you throw the light switch and the sun caresses your steps, allowing the music of your soul to sing aloud... such a beautiful tune, my friend.

Yes... life is a song of contrasts... of dark and light... shadows and sunshine... And nights that overwhelm are themselves oft overwhelmed by day of hope and heaven itself... This is a beautiful message of life and all it holds... and that we must hold on for another day.

This reminds me of a dark, deep and wild river that gradually runs into a sweetly flowing stream. Beautiful.

For every dark day that befalls you may a hundred light days follow. It pains me to read that sorrow ever darkens your door. Always find comfort in the love you evokeand in those that appreciate your love!
