Fun Poem Extravaganza

Hey, everyone! As you know, March 21st is World Poetry Day. I’ve decided to write a poem and add a poem from last year and this year to celebrate. Here are some related blog posts: http://lilliandarnell.com/2016/10/17/lillians-triple-poems/http://lilliandarnell.com/2014/03/13/easter-poems/, and http://lilliandarnell.com/2014/03/12/what-am-i-poems/. I hope you enjoy!

Here’s the first poem I wrote today:

A flower blooms in
the midst of winter
knowingly lasting

Forever running in
a sea of white
as the sun shines.

As its golden petals laid its petals
softly to its soft comfy bed as
it rests in winter.

Here’s the second poem that I wrote last year:

Birds dance in the breeze like ballet dancers
Flowers flow from trees like a waterfall
Trees dance in the sea of grass

Here’s the final poem:

Water is a land
of freedom

Freedom is a gift
of emotion and pride.

While pride is a sea
full of joy.

Emotion is an ocean
full of joy and happiness
with anger and sad falling behind it

As water waves
like a sea of freedom
knowing its beauty awaits.

That’s the end of the poem extravaganza. I hope you enjoyed!

How Flowers Got Their Color

Hey, everyone! Since March 20th is the first day of spring this year, I decided to do a flower story. Here are some other blog posts that are related: http://lilliandarnell.com/2018/03/19/what-if-rainbows-were-magical/http://lilliandarnell.com/2017/04/24/fairy-shadows/, and http://lilliandarnell.com/2017/04/10/princess-beauty/. I hope you enjoy!

Once long ago, there lived a tree called Magic Olaf and in that tree was tons of flower colors that Magic didn’t know what to do with. One day, Rose said, “Do you mind if I grab 2 colors for the game?”. Magic said, “Sure, you can. I was just trying to figure out what I should do with these colors. ”

“Thank you, Magic! I will have my flower friends pick some colors too which will fix your problem,” suggested Rose as she walked off with the colors pink and red. Shortly after Rose said those words, Dandelion walked up and asked, “May I have the yellow and neon orange for the game?” and Magic said, “Yes, you may.”

So Dandelion grabbed yellow and orange while Daffodil grabbed pale yellow and creamy yellow. So Rose wrapped the red color around the outside of her petals and the pink on the inside of her petals and she had borrowed a beautiful green to wrap around the stem.

The other flowers including Dandelion and Daffodil were doing the same as Rose. The game was to camouflage into the color they matched. Little did they know that an evil flower fairy put roots on all the flowers and they stayed with the colors they chose except the colors had melted into the ground.

So if you see any pretty colored flowers, chances are that they were in the game many years ago. That’s the end of the story. I hope you enjoyed this story! I also hope this story got you into a springy mood!

What If Rainbows Were Magical?

Hey, everyone! Last week, I saw a rainbow on me through a prism and I wondered about what would happen if rainbows could heal aches and pains. So I came up with this story you are about to read. By the way, here are some related stories:http://lilliandarnell.com/2018/02/26/why-trees-sparkle-with-water/http://lilliandarnell.com/2018/02/02/how-rain-came-to-be-natures-glitter/, and http://lilliandarnell.com/2017/03/09/angel-island/. I hope you enjoy!

Once long ago, a little girl had scratched her arm and her guardian angel came to her and said, “See this rainbow? If you touch your arm to the rainbow, it will call my presence into the rainbow and heal you.”

So the little girl touched her arm to the rainbow and to her amazement, she saw a beautiful glow coming from the rainbow and the glow was on her arm where the scratch had been.

Many years passed and the little girl was now 16 and her name is Sparkle. Sparkle wondered how she could have the rainbow heal everyone’s aches and pains. She decided to make her own rainbow to help her adjust her theories and ideas.

Finally, Sparkle had the final result called Magical Rainbow. After she made Magical Rainbow, she began to wonder what would happen if she made food and drinks even more tasty with a rainbow.

Sparkle sprinkled her Magical Rainbow potion onto the food and drinks she could adjust her theories and thoughts. After a lot of tasting, she came up with Tasty Magical Rainbow which is the final result.

After Sparkle made Tasty Magical Rainbow, she wondered how else she could improve both potions. Suddenly she got an awesome idea, she could mix the potions together and add a few touches of rainbows that can do anything.

At long last, Sparkle had her final product called YummyBear Magic Rainbow. Everyone wanted to try the new product. So remember Sparkle whenever a rainbow shines on you or see a rainbow.

That’s the end of the story! I hope you enjoyed the story!

Lillian’s Top 9 Ways To Stay Healthy

Hey, everyone! I decided to do an informative blog post on staying healthy.  Here’s a blog post that relates: http://lilliandarnell.com/2017/01/10/beauty-in-you/. I hope you enjoy!

Food

  1. Eat fruit at least 3 times a day. Dried apricot, pear, and apple are all ideal fruit. If you don’t like fruit you should at least drink a little fruit juice. It always helps if you have a variety of fruit to eat. I eat strawberries, cantaloupe, pineapple when available. I also eat a lot of apples (which is anti-inflammatory) and pear (which is semi anti-inflammatory).
  2. Eat vegetables at least 3 times a day as well. Broccoli, carrot, and cucumber are good choices for vegetables. If you don’t like vegetables, try to drink vegetable juice. I eat carrot, broccoli, cucumber (if available), and beets (if available).

Exercise

  1. Yoga is a great way to stretch your body. Yoga can help you with almost any kind of pain. Do yoga at least 3 days a week. I try to do yoga twice a week.
  2. Swimming is an awesome and fun summer exercise to do. Swimming is a great way to cool off and get plenty exercise. Do swimming at least every other day except on weekends (really it’s up to you) while the pool is open. I try to go almost every day in the summer excluding weekends.
  3. Dancing is a good every day exercise you can do. Dancing can help your muscles get stronger. Do dancing at least once a week. I dance at least once a month.
  4. Walking is a great everyday exercise you can do. Walking is a great way to take in nature. Do walking 3 times a week or more (really it should be up to you). I try to go for walks once a week or more.
  5. Running is a fantastic every day exercise you can do. Running can help your leg muscles get a lot stronger. Do running at least 3 times a week or more (it’s up to you really). I try to run at least once a week.

Drinks

  1. Juice can be a great alternative to water sometimes. Drink at least one cup of not from concrete juice a day. For me, I prefer to have one cup of juice (with water) a day when available. It is also a great help for slushies (in the summer or anytime you eat them).
  2. Drink at least 2 cups of room temperature spring water a day. Water can be used to make a flavorless slushie as well. For me though, I prefer to have 2 cups of water every day.

I hope you enjoyed this blog post!

Why Trees Sparkle with Water

Hey, everyone! On February 13th, I saw the trees sparkle with melted snow and it inspired me to write this story. Here are some other stories: http://lilliandarnell.com/2018/02/02/how-rain-came-to-be-natures-glitter/http://lilliandarnell.com/2016/07/20/a-happy-world/,  and http://lilliandarnell.com/2017/03/09/angel-island/. I hope you enjoy!

Once long ago, there lived a family of trees in a faraway land of Tree Land. The trees names were Pine, Cherry, Apple, and Fire (also known as Delphine). They all lived happily in their home which was called the Palace of Fruit. One day,  an invitation arrived at the Palace of Fruit.

The invitation had said that the Ice King was having a tree ball to find the perfect tree for him to decorate. After the family of trees read the invitation, they knew that they had to have the most beautiful dress ever.

So Cherry and Apple went to Fashionable Blooms Store to look for a gorgeous dress. Meanwhile, Pine and Fire went to Fairytale Blossoms Store for a pretty dress. Cherry and Apple realized that they were in the wrong store so they went to Fairytale Blossoms Store instead.

While Cherry and Apple were at Fairytale Blossoms Store, Pine and Fire also had realized that they had been in the wrong store. So Pine and Fire went to Fashionable Blooms Store instead.

Cherry and Apple found a gorgeous sparkly dress aisle made from ice and snow all made from the Ice King. Cherry found a stunning glittery pink dress while Apple found an identical dress except it was a beautiful neon red color.

Pine and Fire found a flaming nutty dress aisle made from pinecones and fires made by the Fire King and Pine King. Fire found a flaming hot red dress while Pine found a pointy brown pine needle dress. Of course, Fire thought it looked a little dull so Fire sprinkled a bit of pinecone dust with glitter on it.

After Cherry and Apple paid for their dresses, they headed to Tree Lane. As they left, Fire and Pine paid for their dresses and they headed to Tree Lane as well to meet up at Olive’s Treet Diner to eat a celebratory meal together.

At the diner, the family of trees chose a peppermint bark salad with a lemon flavored fruit as a side. The family of trees talked about their dresses and Pine & Fire had admitted that they didn’t care about the Ice King. They did care for Pine King and Fire King who also happened to have a ball the same night.

So the family of trees split up for that big night but the big night wasn’t until the end of the month. The month flew by and the big night came, the family of trees got ready together but they split up so they could go to their balls.

That night when the Ice King saw Cherry and Apple in their stunning dresses, he asked to have an icy tree dance with them both separately. Of course, when the ball came to an end, the Ice King couldn’t decide who to decorate so he chose both Cherry and Apple.

Naturally Apple and Cherry were very surprised when he announced that Apple and Cherry were to live and be decorated at his home. Apple and Cherry glanced at each other wondering if Pine and Fire were having the same reaction at their ball.

Meanwhile, when the Fire King and Pine King saw Pine and Fire, the Fire King asked to have a flaming tree dance with Fire while the Pine King asked to have a pointy tree dance with Pine. When the ball was over, Fire King announced that Fire got to stay with him. While the Pine King announced that Pine got to stay with him.

Fire and Pine asked if they could go tell Apple and Cherry the good news. The Fire King and Pine King both agreed. Meanwhile Apple and Cherry were heading to Cherry’s Treat Palace so they could tell the good news to Cherry and Apple.

Fire and Pine had already been at Cherry’s Treat Palace for an hour when Apple and Cherry showed up. Once Cherry and Apple sat down, Cherry and Apple announced that they get to be decorated and stay with the Ice King.

After Cherry and Apple said their news, Fire announced her news and Pine also shared her news. They congratulated each other and went on their way. So if you see any trees sparkling with water, that is Cherry or Apple.

How The Sun Came To Be

Hey, everyone! You’re about to enter an interview with Lady Weather. Here are some other weather-related blog posts: http://lilliandarnell.com/2018/02/02/how-rain-came-to-be-natures-glitter/ and http://lilliandarnell.com/2015/06/05/latest-weather-thunderstorms/. I hope you enjoy!

Lady Wendy Weather: Welcome to Sunny Fields! Are you ready to get started, Mrs. Alice?

Alice: Thank you! Please just call me Alice, Lady Wendy Weather. Yes, I’m so thrilled to get started!

Lady Wendy Weather: Ok then. By the way, please just call me Wendy. Here’s the first question: How did the sun evolve?

Alice: Scientists believe that the sun and the foundation of the solar system were made from an enormous, changing cloud of gas and particles known as the solar nebula. As the nebula gave away because of the force the nebula had, the nebula rotated faster and grew into a disk. A lot of the matter was dragged to the center to create the sun we see today.

Lady Wendy Weather: Wow, that’s very important. How are the sun and its atmosphere divided?

Alice: The sun and its environment are divided into individual zones and bands. The solar center, from the interior out, is formed up of the heart, radiative zone, and the convective zone. The solar air over that consists of the photosphere, chromosphere, a development region and the corona. Behind that is the solar wind, an outpouring of gas from the corona.

Lady Wendy Weather: That’s very informational! How strong is the magnetic field? What is a flare?

Alice: The power of the sun’s magnetic field is usually only about twice as powerful as Earth’s field. Nonetheless, the sun becomes extremely concentrated in small areas, leading up to three thousand times powerful than normal. These difficulties and twists in the magnetic field happen because the sun revolves more swiftly at the tropics than at the larger latitudes and because the internal parts of the sun revolve faster than the exterior. These distortions form features varying from sunspots to thrilling explosions known as flares and coronal mass ejections. Flares are the most powerful eruptions in the solar system, while coronal mass ejections are less powerful but require remarkable amounts of matter which can make a particular ejection spout approximately 20 billion tons (18 billion metric tons) of matter into space.

Lady Wendy Weather: That’s very impressive! Next question: What is the sun made of?

Alice: That is a hard question but luckily I have the answer for you. Here is the answer: Just like utmost additional stars, the sun is formed essentially of hydrogen, accompanied with helium. Nearly all the leftover matter consists of 7 other parts which are oxygen, carbon, neon, nitrogen, magnesium, iron, and silicon. For every 1, 000, 000 molecules of hydrogen in the sun, there are ninety-eight thousand of helium in the sun, eight-hundred fifty of oxygen in the sun, three-hundred sixty of carbon in the sun, a hundred twenty of neon in the sun, a hundred ten of nitrogen in the sun, forty of magnesium in the sun, thirty five of iron in the sun,  and thirty five of silicon. Still, hydrogen is considered the lightest of all elements, so it only values for about seventy-two percent of the sun’s core, while helium forms about twenty-six percent of the sun’s core.

Lady Wendy Weather: How fascinating! What are sunspots? Do solar cycles have anything to do with sunspots?

Alice: Sunspots are comparatively cool, hidden features on the sun’s exterior that are usually approximately circular. Sunspots surface where thick bunches of magnetic field lines from the sun’s inside cut through the surface. Yes, solar cycles have a lot to do with sunspots. The amount of sunspots modifies as solar magnetic activity does and the difference in this number, from a minimum of none to a maximum of about two-hundred-fifty sunspots or bunches of sunspots and then back to a minimum, is identified as the solar cycle, and norms about eleven cycles long. At the end of a cycle, the magnetic field quickly changes its polarity.

Lady Wendy Weather: Wow, very impressive! Are you ready to wrap today’s interview up?

Alice; Most definitely. See you again soon, everyone!

Lady Wendy Weather: Bye, Alice. That’s a wrap for Sunny Fields’ interview. See you next time!

How Rain Came To Be Nature’s Glitter

Hey, everyone! This story is about nature’s natural glitter. You are about to enter a story about rain. Here are more stories: http://lilliandarnell.com/2018/01/28/amazing-nature-party-who-the-special-guests-were/http://lilliandarnell.com/2017/04/10/princess-beauty/, and http://lilliandarnell.com/2017/03/09/angel-island/. I hope you enjoy!

Once long ago, there lived Raine and her friend Storm who lived happily in their home. One day, Raine and Storm saw an advertisement that read, “Mother Nature is looking for weather assistants. Please visit Mother Nature at 8989 Snowy Sun Lane about the job. ”

“Should we visit Mother Nature about the job?”, said Raine to Storm. “Yes, we should. I just hope that Mother Nature is paying a good price”, said Storm.

So, Raine and Storm walked over to Mother Nature’s home. When Raine and Storm got there, here’s the people they saw Hailey, Thunder, Lightning, and Sunny all waiting for Mother Nature to open the door.

Just as Raine and Storm arrived, Mother Nature opened her door and her eyes widened in surprise. “My goodness, I didn’t expect so many people to show up. Well, I guess I better get started,” exclaimed Mother Nature.

Fortunately, Raine and Storm were first to head inside Mother Nature’s home. Mother Nature had white marble pillars arching high over their head, a large winding staircase leading to the meeting room, and a gorgeous chandelier overhead.

As soon as Raine and Storm reached the meeting room, Mother Nature asked a few questions like “what’s your name?” and “what’s your age?”. Eventually, Raine and Storm were told to explore Mother Nature’s home.

The next people were called in from outside were Thunder and Lightning. Mother Nature asked them different questions like “what weather do you like the most?” and “which one would you like to be the most if you got the job?”.

After Mother Nature finished those questions, Thunder and Lightning were also asked to explore Mother Nature’s home or talk to Storm and Raine. Mother Nature went outside to ask Hailey and Sunny questions like “Are you enjoying this weather?” and “Have you ever expressed your feelings before?”.

After Mother Nature finished those questions for Hailey and Sunny, she went to get Raine, Storm, Thunder, and Lightning. Storm and Raine were checking out the weather art gallery while Thunder and Lightning were watching a movie called Singin’ in the Rain in the weather theater.

After Mother Nature got Raine, Storm, Thunder, and Lightning, they all headed for the grass outside. Mother Nature said, “Sunny, you got the job for sunshine. Raine, you got the job for rain. Thunder, you got the job for thunder. Lightning, you got the job for lightning and you also get to help Thunder. Hailey, you got the job for hail you can help with Raine, Thunder, Lightning. Storm, you got the job for storm which means you get help Raine, Thunder, Lightning, Hailey.”

So Mother Nature sent them all on their way to pack some belongings at their homes. As Raine and Storm walked home, Raine asked,”Should I change my name to Rain since I got the rain job?”.

Storm replied, “Yes, that sounds like a great idea!”. Meanwhile, Hailey was asking, “Should I change my name to Hail since I got the hail job?”. Sunny responded,”Yes, great idea. I will shorten my name to Sun.”

So when Storm and Raine got home, Raine called Mother Nature to tell her that she changed her name to Rain. Meanwhile, Hailey and Sunny called Mother Nature to tell her that Hailey and Sunny changed their names to Hail and Sun.

Mother Nature asked,”Can you be my natural glitter for when Sunny shines on you?” when Raine called and Raine happily agreed. Hailey and Sunny also agreed to be nature’s glitter for colder months and that’s how Rain became nature’s glitter.

 

Amazing Nature Party: Who The Special Guests Were

Hey, everyone! This is part 7 of the Amazing Nature Party series. In this part of the series, you’ll find the answers to the questions asked in Part 6. I hope you enjoy!

The party leader and the party guests added more expressions to help the special guests feel welcome, impressed, and have fun.

The people who were willing to give the Nature Party a try were a nymph, a sprite named Daisy,  a countess named Lavender, a king named Miles, a queen named Lila, and a superhero named Abby the Magnificent.

The party guests were very gratified and honored to have a king, nymph, countess, and superhero to be at the party. Here’s what Daisy said, “What a blooming party, this should happen every day!”. The nymph said, “What a beautiful party about nature!”

Miles said, “This is such an extravaganza! As King and wife to Lila, I would like to politely request that this nature party happens every day.” The party guests cheered happily at the demand.

Lila said, “I very much agree with Miles and everyone else at this party. As Queen and wife of Miles, I would also like to cordially ask that this nature party goes on every day.”

Everyone again applauded and cheered at the request and agreement. Abby said, “This is the most adventurous party I’ve ever seen in ages. I’ve also brought someone back with me you might like to see again.”

As soon as Abby said those words, the nature Fairy; her unicorn, and the Fairy Queen came out from beneath the tree. The Nature party guests as well as the Nature Party leader applauded cheerfully.

The Nature Fairy said, “Is there a wish I can grant all of you?” and the party guests, as well as the special guests, said, “Yes, the wish is that the nature party lasts more than a day and night.”

At those words, the Nature fairy summoned her mother who is the Fairy Queen to help her grant the wish. And so, that’s how nature gets along so well to this day.

That’s the end of the Amazing Nature Party series. I hope you enjoyed the series!
