We must live first, then we can see whether we live poetically or not. Xiaoyi is a contributing writer of the magazine. The fourth edition of the magazine is her column "poetry of life". And Xiaoyi's love for poetry has reached the point of fanaticism, and she has organized a famous poetry club in the local area. Every weekend, my aunt would like to meet an important festival, dress up, and get together with the members, talk about poetry, poetry appreciation.
Aunt is a peasant woman who can't beat the poem "eight poles", but she is a famous figure in the farmer's market. Her cabbage is the most green and tender, her apple and grape are the most watery, her eggs are famous for their nutrition, and even some people say that the chicken bought from her can be cured by boiling soup! In fact, I know that customers would rather go all the way to my aunt's place, for her enthusiasm and honesty.
I've been to my aunt's house. It's like the classic and standard Chinese "Sutra Pavilion". When I came in, I saw a new "road is long and far away, I will go up and down to seek", and then I went a few steps further. Li Bai, Du Fu, Wang Bo and Li Qingzhao greeted me one by one; when I opened the bedroom door, Thoreau's sentence "living poetically on Walden Lake" was particularly striking. In the face of a room full of books and my uncle's whispers, my aunt spits out her tongue and says mischievously, "don't pay attention to him, my daughter, I love books."
I have also been to my aunt's house, the green brick house, the dim light. My aunt is busy inside and outside, never stopping. In her kitchen, the pots and pans are playing percussion music arbitrarily; in her yard, chickens, ducks, geese and pigs are singing a chorus happily. Seeing me coming, my aunt was very embarrassed: "my family is in a mess. Don't mind. Come and sit down."
My little aunt is the so-called "literary youth", "ten fingers do not touch the spring water", living a "cultural man" life.
My aunt is a "big old man" in other people's eyes. She is used to heavy work and lives a life of an ordinary peasant woman.
I've been trying to figure out why, when talking about their lives, two people who are so different see the brilliance of happiness, satisfaction and even pride so similar?
My aunt thinks that she has been living a poetic life. My aunt doesn't understand what poetry is, but in other people's eyes, she also has a poetic life.
Perhaps because they are optimistic and live upward, they can do their best in their own field and get satisfaction.
Perhaps because life itself is a poem, optimism and enrichment is poetry.
My "elegant" aunt and "vulgar" aunt live in the same blue sky poetically.
Poetry is close to us, we live, we live optimistically and fully, we can declare——
I am living poetically.
Through the sharp contrast of two different life styles of "little aunt" and "aunt", this paper interprets "living poetically", that is, "living optimistically and fully", and "doing the best in your own field". Know simplicity but truth. Contrast narration, two contrast, can be said to be ingenious. But the image of "little aunt" and "aunt" is clear and interesting, which is still a good work for the examination room.
