Definition

One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, nor till the autocrats among us can be “literalists of the imagination”—above insolence and triviality and can present for inspection, imaginary gardens with real toads in them, shall we have it.

Transforming Friday with Nature's Wonders

Hello poetic friends!! It's Hannah here with yet another inspiring nature place to allow our muses to feast upon.

Red Beach, Panjin, China...


via photobucket- (Home to more than 236 types of birds)

Red Beach is located in the Liaohe River Delta, about 30 kilometers southwest of Panjin City in China. The beach’s unique color is caused by a type of plant called Suaeda vera or Shrubby Sea-blite which is a coastal species that flourishes in the saline-alkali soil. The plant remains green during the summer but in the fall, when the plant has matured, it takes on a deep red color creating a stunning red sea landscape. Most of Red Beach is a nature reserve and closed to the public. Only a small, remote section is open to tourists.

Some interesting facts I found in my travels...

The Suaeda fruticosa A.K.A. Shrubby Seablite are used as a poultice in the treatment of ophthalmia, (also called ophthalmitis, is inflammation of the eye).When infused in water, they have been used as an emetic, (a medicine or other substance that causes vomiting).  Also, the plant is rich in potassium and is often burnt as a source of potash which is a potassium or a potassium compound especially as used in agriculture or industry for making soap and glass.

I found this intriguing...

Potash /ˈpɒtæʃ/ is any of various mined and manufactured salts that contain potassium in water-soluble form.The name derives from "pot ash", which refers to plant ashes soaked in water in a pot, the primary means of manufacturing the product before the industrial era. The word "potassium" is derived from potash.

Okay, so run with it...er...write with it. Go in any direction you please...play with the place, color, pictures I featured, facts that I found or ones that you might find...be inspired and have fun!

Please write something new today and be sure to take the time to support your fellow blogging friends that link up here!! 

Thank you, in advance for playing along with your words and voices that are unique and treasured. :)

Thanks for another intriguing location, Hannah.

Hannah said...

You're so welcome, Kerry!

I hope that poets will find some inspiration in it. :)

I echo a sentiment that our Margaret recently stated about the Friday prompts...in my own words though...please, feel free to catch up with this prompt later if need be. I realize that Friday can be a busy day for people with weekend plans and what not.

On that note...a blessed weekend to all! :)

I'm on a writing break but taking time out (lunch break) to write for your lovely prompt Hannah ~

Happy Friday to all ~

Oh goody! Transforming Friday. I so love them! I had seen photos of this place and found your explanation very informative. I had no idea why the fields were so red. Spectacular. Am relieved to note most of it is kept as a nature preserve, thank HEAVENS! I shall transform my brain from its current sludgy state and, hopefully, return.

Beautiful photos and inspiration on this Friday! My computer had a virus for two days-beware of Pinterest~
I suspect this is where I become under attack...this is my bug out month-I guess?!

Thank you Hannah...how glorious is this enchanting red!

I keep it simple this time, Hannah. I sure would like to visit this wonder.

Margaret said...

This was challenging for me - so I did some research on the color red and cranes. Thanks, Hannah.

Marian said...

Thank you everyone for your responses and comments!!

I look forward to reading each of you.

I'm having difficulty accessing the commenting portion of your blog, Sumana. Is anyone else having that issue.
