#Poetic Short Story- Grand Performance

a single light
in the empty sky,
agreed that it was
Mother Nature’s
cue to flourish.

Her sultry figure illuminated
once Dawn’s sun rays rose above
the curtain of shadows
in the forest that lies beyond
the horizon.

In the spotlight,
Mother Nature bloomed as she gave
the finest performance of her life
charming her lovely floral audience
that is basking in her ravishing presence.

Her singsong voice
echoes throughout the fields
that seem to stretch
for miles and miles.

“When your nights are cold
and filled with misery,
look inside your heart.”

“Realize that I’m here
to give you my sympathy
and my love belongs to you.”

    These are really impressive ideas in on the topic of blogging.

    You have touched some fastidious points here. Any way keep up
    wrinting. Hello there! This post could not be written much
    better! Looking at this article reminds me of my previous roommate!

    He continually kept talking about this. I’ll send this article to him.
    Fairly certain he’ll have a great read. Thanks for sharing!
    I could not resist commenting. Very well written! http://Samsung.com/

    Hello, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just
    wondering if you get a lot of spam feedback? If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything
    you can suggest? I get so much lately it’s driving me mad
    so any support is very much appreciated. I’ll immediately snatch your rss feed as I can’t in finding your e-mail subscription hyperlink or e-newsletter service.

    Do you have any? Please let me realize so that I may just
    subscribe. Thanks. I’ve been surfing online more than 3 hours lately, yet I never found any fascinating
    article like yours. It is pretty worth sufficient for me.
    In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content as you
    probably did, the internet will likely be
    a lot more useful than ever before. http://pepsi.net/

    1. theresaly520 says:

      Yes, I have plenty of spam feedback, but I haven’t found a plugin to manage it yet! I’ve added a few widgets to help readers subscribe to my blog which are at the bottom of my website. Haven’t created a newsletter yet, but that’s a great idea! Thank you again for stopping by! I appreciate you! πŸ™‚

    Very good blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost
    on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free
    platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
    Any ideas? Thank you!

    1. theresaly520 says:

      Hello Elizabeth! Thank you for stopping by! πŸ™‚ I started off with a free platform (WordPress) because I wasn’t sure if I would stick with it long. I wanted to test my commitment levels. Over time, some bloggers eventually inform their readers of moving to a paid option that has more features. I participated in several prompts hosted by other writers so other followers I knew was there. I left some tips on this post: https://theresaly520.wordpress.com/2019/05/07/qa-the-truly-inspired-series/

      Good luck to you! Wishing you the best experience! ❀
