Up far too late reading poetry and fell in love with this one.
Icarus is widely known for flying too close to the sun, melting his wings of wax, and falling. But in order to fall, Icarus also had to fly. To lose something, we have to gain it first. The loss or the fall is just a small chapter in the complete story, yet it often becomes our entire focus.
I love the heavy use of contrast in this poem... light and dark, day and night, sun and moon, success and failure, flying and falling. Almost as if it's encouraging a shift in perception or maybe a highlighting the importance of the journey instead of the destination. Maybe it's just showing the vast differences between optimism and pessimism.

The Myths (Part 3)
Before we can continue observing more details, we need to know the location of Avantia, the fictional country in the Beast Quest Books. To do that, we need to look at the mythical monsters. The creatures seen in the first arc are a dragon, a sea serpent, a Bigfoot, a centaur, a Yeti, and a phoenix. While the number of limbs are inaccurate, the dragon seen in the books most likely resembles the European dragon. Sea serpents are generally found in Norse Mythology, which originated in Northern Germany. While Bigfoot originates from North America, the title of the book gives us details that prove otherwise. In the title, the Bigfoot is described as a mountain giant. In Norse Mythology, Jotun are often proposed to the gods. While Jotun is often translated as "giants", most are described to be roughly the size of humans. However, there are some Jotun that are portrayed to be huge such as frost giants, fire giants, and mountain giants. Centaurs are also found in Europe since they originated in Greek Mythology. Yetis are known to be restricted to the Himalayas, but there is an incident in 2016 that proved this otherwise. Published in Dailystar.co.uk in the 9th of February 2016, there has been a Yeti sighting in the Spanish mountains with a tape recording. Another man has also stumbled across a large set of footprints on the remote mountainside; indicating that yetis are also located in Europe. Finally, phoenixes are found in Egyptian, Arab, and Greek mythologies. According to this, Avantia is located in Europe; but which country is it? Calculating the area of Avantia gives us a rough estimate of 12,175 square kilometers. The closest country to Avantia in area is Montenegro, with an area of 13,812 square kilometers; indicating that Avantia is located in Montenegro. Further evidence comes from geography. #beastquest#Mythology#Location
Pashupatinath Temple complex, Kathmandu, Nepal. In the center, two-tiered pagoda styled temple that you see is the Pashupatinath Temple. It thought to be built in 5th century, destroyed and rebuilt over next few centuries by many invaders and rulers in the region.
According to a legend, the Hindu god Shiva once fled from the other gods in Varanasi to Mrigasthali, the forest on the opposite bank of this Bagmati River from the temple. There he spent time in the form of a gazelle. When the gods discovered him there and tried to bring him back to Varanasi, he leapt across the river to the opposite bank, where one of his horns broke into four pieces. After this, Shiva became manifest as Pashupati (Lord of Animals) in a four-face (chaturmukha) linga.
The energy in this place is surreal and sublime. A personal subjective experience for each individual. In admist of all the chaos and conundrum of the devotees and mourning relatives of deceased individuals, it's not hard to find some peaceful moments in some corner of this vast perhaps scenic complex. Foreigners flock this place sitting at the ghats for hours looking/clicking burning pyres. I have never seen such a fascination for death than here (perhaps in Varanasi too). Coming to think of it, death is something at which all the logic of all the knowledgeable people ends. It's a single most powerful thing infront of which even the wealthiests and the strongests feel helpless. Places like these do make you introspect if you allow them to, however one doesn't need to go this far to do that either. 😊
~ Suite à une journée de pluie, les éclairs se mirent à jouer leur rôle à la perfection. Elle alluma donc une bougie de couleur bleue, au cas où elle serait seule, dans le noir total, puisque son ordinateur pouvait se fermer d'un instant à l'autre. ~

P.S. J'avais oublié de préciser la partie "et calmer mes chiens qui ont peur des éclairs ainsi que des feux d'artifices" 🎉 ,puisque c'est la #sainjeanbaptiste 🙈🐶
En passant, bonne Saint-Jean-Baptiste à tout le monde 😉 !
