In Barbara Kingsolver’s story, “The Bean Trees”, something that makes it so effective is her use of figurative language to depict scenery. In chapter 12, Mattie takes Taylor, Esperanza and Estevan to a beautiful desert at the time of the first rain, so they can see the natural world come to life. In order to make the scene come alive, Kingsolver uses sillies, metaphors and personification as a mean of figurative language. Kingsolver personifies the mountains and city. “The sloped desert plain that lay between us and the city was like a palm stretched out for a fortuneteller to read, with its mounds and hillocks, its life lines and heart lines of dry stream beds”.
When Antonio fails, he believes he cannot be a priest, like his mother wishes. It is traumatic not only because Lupito dies right in front of him, but because Antonio isn’t able to help in anyway. Beside that, another reason that leads to him becoming mature is where Lupito died. Under the bridge, Lupito dies next to where Antonio was hiding observing the confrontation. The llano and the
A bright full moon was shining down on them illuminating the road, a slightly cold breeze blew by, rustling up a few leaves from the ground right into the air. The tall, dark forest loomed in the distance, it was then a shadow passed over the right side of the road, moving quickly. An eerie, strange sound began emanating from the dark tree 's. Out of the corner of his eye, Wayfarer spotted a dark shadow suddenly run by them. All he saw was a flash of black and grey.
The second set suggested that Simpson had in fact used his opportunity to kill his ex-wife and Ronald Goldman. The first group of witness included relatives and friends of Nicole, friend of OJ and a 9-1-1 dispatcher, all produced to demonstrate Simpsons motive and his history of domestic abuse.

He entered the miner’s house with a gun, but someone saw him and persuaded Billy to return it. Not long after, the person who convinced Billy to return the gun, took part in a fight. During the fight, Billy ran into the crowd holding a pocket knife and that night he became a murderer (Garrett 10). He would never see his mother again after that night. Conversely, he would never see his mother again, he had no more good influences in his life (Garrett 11).
The poem”Stars” by Sara Teasdale was a poem that drew me in. I immediately shared Teasdale 's perspective on the stars. The title, “Stars” made me think about how many stars are in the sky and reminded me of when I go camping with my dad and we go to the observatory to look at stars, therefore giving me a happy connotation. It made me wonder whether the poem would be about physical stars or if it was going to be about metaphorical stars. My paraphrase of the poem is: Alone in the woods at night, I look up at the beautiful stars.
The lunar phase or phase of the moon is the shape of the illuminated (sunlit) portion of the Moon as seen by an observer on Earth. The lunar phases change cyclically as the Moon orbits the Earth, according to the changing positions of the Moon and Sun relative to the Earth. The Moon 's rotation is tidally locked by the Earth 's gravity, therefore the same lunar surface always faces Earth. This face is variously sunlit depending on the position of the Moon in its orbit. Therefore, the portion of this hemisphere that is visible to an observer on Earth can vary from about 100% (full moon) to 0% (new moon).
When the reader understands that adobe is a type of brick used in western culture for many structures and buildings, they can draw the conclusion that the writer is on a ranch in a western part of the United States, probably in the desert. From there the reader can imagine the setting. As I read this poem and imagine the setting: an average ranch house, made of adobe, with a large porch cluttered with some cheap green lawn chairs facing the fields. I can see the tumbleweeds and dirt surrounding the
Tonight was no different, and I held on tightly to my father’s hand while the rest of the camp group started walking. We planned to go to a nearby meadow, to stargaze. The mountains were a perfect place to look at the sky, as they were unadulterated by city lights. Nothing terrified me more than the night sky, which seemed like an endless void. There was so much space that it felt as if I would get sucked in.
Intermediate cratering was smaller asteroids and debris smashing into the moon, creating smaller craters in the surface of the mare. From this time, until today, ray cratering has been taking place (Evolution of the Moon. 2012). These are the craters that have bright rays coming off of them. Lunar exploration began when the Soviets’ Luna flew by the moon in 1959.
