      What an apt thing to reflect on at this time of year. I can relate to this as I go around my garden and see new growth. It is very consoling how life goes on.

        Hello Mary!
        What a beautiful comment!
        I am happy that my thoughts resonated with you. We need to find happiness in smaller things.
        Life is much more smoother, if we have least expectations, and be satisfied with whatever we get.
        Many thanks for reading and sharing your thoughts.
        Happy New Year to you.

    Chitrangada creates her version of "beginnings" through a series of haikus that talk about nature, from the sun shining on a new day to the farmers welcoming fresh blossoms and seedlings to fresh flowers blooming. She ends her fantastic work with some thought-provoking quotes from greats like Seneca and Plato.Thanks, Chitrangada, for writing such a beautiful response to Brenda's prompt.

    Thanks John for sharing.

    I enjoyed reading Chitrangada's poems. The first one contains some good advice, and the second one is beautiful. A positive approach to life can certainly help us to deal with many worries, and a rising sun is a lovely symbol. The quotations are interesting and memorable.

    Thank you for sharing the article, John.

    Chitrangada...
    I did this on Tuesday at 12:15 pm., but I have no idea why it's not showing.

    Here's my response.

    Chitrangada
    In your article, "Beginnings and Hopes: Poem and Quotes" I love the idea of new beginnings happening with the sun.

    For each new day we get another chance to start anew.

    Your pictures & Haikus show beginnings quite well.

    We do have new hopes with each morning sunrise.

    The farmer's definitely delight when they see those crops popping up.

    The Blossoms, breeze, butterflies and birds, always brings us hope.

    My favorite quote
    Every moment is a fresh beginning.”—T S Eliot

      I don’t know why your earlier comment is not visible in the thread.

      Appreciate you for reading and analysing my response to the word prompt.
      Glad that you liked the Haikus and quotes. I usually find my motivation through Nature, and early morning is my favourite time of the day.
      Thank you so much for inspiring us with another wonderful word prompt.
      My Best Wishes to you.

    Hi Chitrangada,
    Great work on the word prompt beginnings. I especially loved the one for the farmers. Your images work perfectly for the haikus and overall, for the article. I also clicked into your previous poem about beginning a new year. Excellent and smart, as you have created an evergreen New Year's gift for readers.

    I love how you associate beginnings with the morning sun, symbolizing new opportunities and a fresh start. Life is indeed a mix of challenges and joys, but adopting a positive approach can help us navigate through the ups and downs. Your haikus beautifully capture the essence of beginnings, highlighting the rejuvenation of nature and the hope it brings. The images you've shared complement the poetic imagery.
