#weekly-photo-challenge #natural-beauty 2/6

One more from my Walk Along the White River in Auburn, Washington. It gets its name from it normal grayish appearance due to the volume of clay it carries off Mount Rainier about 100km Away. The White River is born from the Emmons Glacier on the Mountain’s northeast flank. Today, the water appears much bluer because the sky was clear and bright, and the river is reflecting back the color of the sky. This is but a side channel carved out by the last high water surge. A river is a living thing and constantly changing. That is why the Greek philosopher, Heraclytis observed, “You can never step into the same river twice.”

My granddaughter, Arianna, age 10, made her acting debut this weekend in the CYT (Christian Youth Theater) production of Annie, Jr., a version of Little Orphan Annie for younger actors. She played Kate, one of the orphans. Do you think, Papa is proud of his little thespian? She performed at Auburn-Riverside High School’s Theater, Auburn, Washington . Reminds me of her mother, Bekah (my daughter, center picture) who never met a play challenge she would pass on. She was a scene stealer every time, and Ari is well on her way following Mama’s footsteps.

#PhotoPrompt-for-inSIGHT-76. #Home

Invited by +Gel Poetry Garden

Home (Sonnet #589)

Is home a lakeside cottage bungalow
Of blue and white, sweet shutters by the panes?
Or, penthouse on the East Side where the strains
Of Mozart and Vivaldi drift below?
If fill’d with pretty things but nothing more
No more than testament to broken dreams
It be, a prison now guarded by schemes,
Things which cannot love you nor e’er adore.
Love cannot be a place, but a person
In he or she, your soul has found its rest
Where’er you wander, put this to the test
She be your scenery, your sweet portion.
If this is the future you dream to be
Please come and build this paradise with me.

#Structured-Poetry-Class #Tetractys

Back to Italy via Poetry. Pythagoras was not only a mathematician, he built an entire religious cultus around numbers. Believing that “10” was the perfect number, and noting that the first four numbers 1, 2, 3, and 4 added up to ten, he called anything using this sequence a tetractys. In the illustration for this class, today, notice the sequence of 1,2,3,4, added together forms the Equilateral Triangle. The poet, Ray Stebbing formalized rules for its presentation poetically

A simple tetractys stanza is a quintain containing 20 syllables
First line, one syllable; Second, two; Third, three, Fourth, four; Fifth, ten.

Multiple stanzas are encouraged, but for each stanza, invert the order. Thus, in my example, my stanzas are: 1, 2, 3, 4, 10. 10, 4, 3, 2, 1 1, 1, 2, 3, 4, 10

Andalusia (Triple Tetractys)

My darling,
Through the beauty
These water gardens offer your senses.

Wisteria in fragrance to seduce,
Arcing waters
To delight
Eyes and

Do complete
The Alhambra’s
Magical allure, my Moorish Princess.

Along the White River, in Auburn, Washington is this public trail that runs 10 kilometers. It is beautiful year round, but it’s beauty is remarkable in the Autumn. Posting tomorrow’s picture now because I have to work on Sunday.
