A Fiery Sonnet

I couldn’t resist sharing these brilliant works: “To the Stars,” “Ancient Greek Ornament,” and a vivid self-portrait, masterfully crafted by Vasilisa.

  2. I find writing sonnets to be so difficult, but this one is so beautiful and flows so smoothly! I love it so much! 🙂

      1. Translating poetry is so hard, I agree! And normally poetry sounds much better in its original language, which makes me wish I knew Russian to read that version… but still, I love it! You’re welcome 🙂

  3. You speak English really well given it isn’t your native language. When my husband and I visited Russia, we struggled mightily to utter a few words in Russian.

    I was born and raised in Canada, and all of my family still lives there, so I’m wondering where you’re living. Thanks for taking time away from your studies and writing to visit my blog!

    1. Thank you, Lily! I’m pleased to meet you.

      It it astounding to know you’ve visited Russia. Which city/cities have you been to? Russian is a daunting language, indeed. Even native speakers, like me, frequently make mistakes.😉

      It’s exciting to learn you are Canadian! This is my favourite country, although I’ve only lived there for two years, finalizing my high school studies abroad.

      After graduation, I’ve returned to my hometown, Yekaterinburg, which borders remorseless Siberia and the Ural Mountains. Alas, due to the pandemic, returning to Canada is impossible until January. Fortunately, the University of Toronto offers online courses for the Fall semester, so I’m going to begin my freshman year at home.

      I love your blog and all the writing advice you offer! It’s an excellent initiative, and I’m glad I’ve found your enlightening articles!

      Warmest regards & stay safe✨
