BrewNSpew Cafe -July 29, 2019


 listen as it nears

a red robin deep in song

beauty after rain

July 29th is Lasagna Day! Did you know that lasagna is the singular for lasagne, a wide flat pasta? In recent years the terms are used both to refer to the pasta and the dish made with the pasta.

Presenting the week’s challenge – You may use the word, quote or any part of it and/or the image for this week’s prompt.

Word prompt – rainbow- (noun)  —  an arc or circle that exhibits in concentric bands the colors of the spectrum and that is formed opposite the sun by the refraction and reflection of the sun’s rays in raindrops, spray, or mist; a multicolored array; a wide assortment or range; from the impossibility of reaching the rainbow, at whose foot a pot of gold is said to be buried; an illusory goal or hope


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

arcs of transformation

splendid hues make them grand.

red represents wisdom and energy

orange offers creativity and enjoyment

while sunny yellow offers lucidity

and feeds the ego.

green is life’s growth and equalization

and blue, quieting, unceasing and

musings of The Unknown.

indigo and its otherworldly powers

enhancing intuitiveness.

majestic violet, its velvety tones

inspirational and spiritual.

nature’s paintings made quiet
