THE SATURDAY SYMPHONY #18 (Darkness and Light)

Happy greetings to all you symphoneers and those passing through.

Welcome to the 18th edition of The Saturday Symphony. Here are some thoughts to kick us off;

Acknowledging that something so beautiful can have a very ugly side is often difficult. Is ignorance bliss or denial?

Where there is light, darkness is close by.

I have shown you my light
And you have basked in its beauty
If I show you my darkness
Will you stay all the same
Will you take the good with the bad
And see me for who I truly am.

See the darkness, then learn to lull it to a wakeless slumber

This week’s three featured posts

  1. What do we do with a drunken sailor by Richard DaybellAmazingly told.
  2. Empty by ZoewiezoeBeautifully Deep poetry.
  3. An autumn night tragedy by CaleeRemarkable storytelling.
See me, then you can have me.

PONDEROUS THOUGHT

DARKNESS AND LIGHT
This week, portray the beautiful and ugly of something you hold dear.

It can be a person, a concept, an idea or anything you adore.

Show or tell of that darkness and that light, and how one outweighs the other

Ponderous thought prompt

You can use all forms of writing, images and even art. All are most welcome.

Light or darkness? Why do you love what you love?

Don’t forget to pingback to this post so I can find you, and so others can join in too.

Ponderous writers from last week’s edition

RIDDLE ME THIS…

Reviewing a riddle is so much of a spoiler. This week I’m leaving the links for you, to go on over and enjoy the riddles for yourself. M

Thank you all, lots of love.

Finishing the symphony after my morning workout.

Remember to pingback to this post, and to paste the link to your post in the comments section, just to be sure I find you.

Stay safe, enjoy your weekend, and conquer your dark side.

    Ohh – thank you so much for the feature!
    That’s awesome!

    And I love the prompt (even though I’ve never been a prompt-writer). I feel like I write about that light-dark divide a lot though, maybe unconsciously so. We all sort of do, right? – since it’s present in pretty much everything around us I think…

      My pleasure to feature you 🌷

      And I guess you’re right about subconsciously writing about this theme.
      I figured it would be interesting and enriching to consciously express it though for this week’s theme

    Balancing opposites is always something we wrestle with. One of the hardest things about relationships is accepting both sides. (K)

      Yeah I agree, and those that get to know the dark side can decide early enough if it’s one they can work with. Rather than convincing oneself that all is rosy, and everything spilling out at the most inopportune moment.

  9. A very good theme to be writing about. Lovely take on darkness and light. Since we live in this world of illusion this duality will keep on existing always. Lovely post Jude.πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™

      Thank you so much Kamal. We can tame our dark sides but it’s dangerous to ignore them.

    Reblogged this on Marsha Ingrao – Always Write and commented:
    This is Jude’s 18 edition of his challenge The Saturday Symphony. Already 51 people are excited about it. I love his first picture. Jude is soon to be featured on Always Write, but you can get to know him first on his site.
