A Rainy Day


~~~

Dear Diary,

I don't know how to say this because, well, it's indescribable. 
You had to be there, you see. 
It was... 
something else. 
For sure. 
It's still drifting euphorically through my mind.
Tells you how memorable life can be sometimes. 
Memorable enough to stay with you for days... 
probably more.

If I were to go back in time, and experience all of it again,
would I do something differently?
Would I change anything, or...

First Day

PROMPT: A Piece of Good News  | GROUP: In This Together

Today, i went to school. Yeah, surprising since the cases of COVID have only risen since we did online schooling. I'm just really happy that i get to finally see my friends and everybody. I actually felt something other than darkness today. But today wasn't the best, too. Ashlee decided i wasn't good enough for her and dropped the whole group, also the same day that Jada and Kiaya decided to leave the group. So it was only me, Emily,...

Dear diary,
"Your name is so simple yet full of secrets." -me 2020
I had one of the worst days I ever had today, I accidentally skipped a class and I feel soooooo bad. I never skip class. I guess I'm just stupid like that. I'm hoping things will turn around so I'm gonna name ten things that I'm looking forward to.
1. Horseback riding: because it makes me feel free
2. writing letters to covid-19 patients: because it will...

Dear Journey,

    Do you like my play on words? You're a journal, right, and so I was going to nickname you "Journie" but I changed the spelling to "Journey." Like a travel through my life. I've been keeping you since I was eight years old, so you've seen all my early teenage angst and stupid self-obsession. Luckily, I am over that by now, and ready to begin a new life as a mature young girl.

The Daisy Bush

PROMPT: A Piece of Good News  | GROUP: In This Together

A small bush of daisies blooms, in the corner of our garden. It is only about a foot long on the longest side, with flowers the size of Australian fifty cent coins. The flowers are such a vibrant pink, it is hard not to be happy when you are around them. Yellowed dead leaves fall of the peach tree, they die now, but it is just a reminder that peach blossoms will come soon, in the spring. When golden light...

Best Friend Hopes

PROMPT: A Piece of Good News  | GROUP: In This Together

Dear Diary, or maybe I should say: Dear part-time psychologist,

It has been some rough few days but I keep praying that everything will be all right. My best friend was also very down today. He is very mood-y, but he is always there for me and makes me laugh during my worse times. Yesterday was my turn to help him. He is going through quite a hard time and is having problems learning through a totally different way in...

i know it feels like it's been 
raining for too long and that
the sun may never show. but
i have hope, that the sky will
bleed of sunlight someday, once

i know it feels like your breath
has been pulled out of you and 
that inhaling old air hurts more
than it helps. but i have hope,
that the air will bleed of fresh
oxygen someday, once again.

Believing... We are survivors

PROMPT: A Piece of Good News  | GROUP: In This Together

Everyday less cases are found. We will get through this. People are stressed because we hear on the news all the complaints of the day. The world will grow as we always do and we will be okay.

Look at the joy you find in things and focus on the fun. Your day is as dreary as you make it so look for the things that shine in your life. We will get through this.

Birthday Celebrations

PROMPT: A Piece of Good News  | GROUP: In This Together

My sibling celebrated her birthday, 
their last year as a youngster to be exact. 
While we forced to be seperated, 
our hearts were near. 

We spread the cheer
with videos and laughter. 
Cake and cookies, 
where were the brookies? (brownie-cookies)

We talked into the night, 
sharing light into the dark. 

I smile, 
this day truly worthwhile. 

And I can't help but think, 
maybe quarantine made me closer
to my sibling 
for the better.

Slamming lockers
Footsteps in crowded hallways
Laughter

The last time I walked through school hallways, the lights were dim and there were not enough people to fill the space. The school gave us the opportunity to collect our possessions; we did not know when we would return. I met only a few people on the way to my locker: a teacher, a classmate, and an office staff member.

My locker creaked as I opened it; I had never noticed...

One Day At A Time

PROMPT: A Piece of Good News  | GROUP: In This Together

A staircase to the sun
Shimmering on the river beyond
Water droplets twinkling
Catching her light as she shines down

Stormclouds brewing
Rain pitter-pattering on the roof, bring life to those below
The sky filled with shades of grey
A renewal, a rebirth of growth for the parched earth

For most
The outside is unfamilar
Dreams and wishes
existing only on a pinboard, or a desktop background

Though, don't despair
She's here still
Existing quietly
Waiting for you to come...

New Beginnings

PROMPT: A Piece of Good News  | GROUP: In This Together

Today I went for a walk. I was alone, my sister having been out once already today, and so I was quiet. Sometimes on walks like these I take the time to hear my feet clap the pavement, to slow my breathing, to search for my edges and will myself into existence again.

Today instead of footsteps the cheerful chirps of goldfinches and competitive whistles of three or maybe four blackbirds were audible above the houses. There were no cars...

Dear Diary,

I just finished doing some homework, and now I can finally relax. As I'm typing away, I wonder if I should say this, or that? I just put on my headphones to listen to some music, and I play my favourite song. As the music begins to play, it feels as if I am being transported into another world. A world of its own. A world of joy and no disease. The music brings me...

Quotes of Good News

PROMPT: A Piece of Good News  | GROUP: In This Together

This too shall pass

The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain

Nothing lasts forever

In spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart

Be the change you wish to see in the world

Sometimes good things fall apart, so better things can fall together!

There is good in this world, and it's worth fighting for

Don't be afraid to give up the good do go...

Today, is the third day of the homemade birdhouse trial run. The first two days were unsuccessful, much to my sister’s despair. But today, luck has finally shown it’s shining face. Two birds, plump as could be, sat on our fence and pecked at the stale oat breadcrumbs we had left them. Joy to the world! My sister wanted to shout but I shushed her- she would scare them off. It seemed the simple movement of her running into the...

The sky was a canvas of  glittering jewels shining above the moonlit roads. My feeble fingers clutched to the window sill to let my body lean into the gorgeous mystique of  Kolkata under the stars- something that I'd never seen before.  Kolkata had been always been a vast crowd for me- from the dusty railway stations, to the smoky Park Street . Along the broken pavements, under the  ancient  crossovers smoldering  with cars, lived a small family. Their clothes clinging...

I have a lot of siblings, so my mom is always prepared for holidays before they come. Easter morning I woke up and my mom said, "There are 64 eggs in this room. 32 are for you, and 32 are for your brother. There's also a gift with your name on it somewhere." I tried to wake my brother up to no avail, but I also didn't try very hard; I don't like being woken up either. I told him...

Bright Side of Quarantine

April 23, 2020

For the past several weeks, there have been many precautions taken to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, including social distancing. This means everything involving getting together physically has been cancelled, including school, and many big events. Though I'm disappointed about some of these events, I've been happy to have a lot more time on my hands. I've been able to persue my passions, such as theoretical physics, pure mathematics, writing, and playing my instruments (especially piano)....

You could be writer of Fiction, create the worlds that dance in your mind,
the story could be short with less than three lines.

Or maybe write a Novella with 30 to 50 thousand words,
possibly a Novel that is about the birds!

Do Scripts and Screenplays play a part for you?
Lets not forget being a planner do you want to dive into something new?

Take up Nonfiction creating to bring the facts one by one.
