A NOTE FROM THE CO-EDITORS AND CO-FOUNDERS

Welcome to this first issue of Auroras & Blossoms Creative Arts Journal!

A little over a year ago, Auroras & Blossoms took its first official steps with the release of the first issue of its poetry journal.

The rapid success of the digital magazine triggered our desire to welcome more art forms to the platform. In April 2020, we launched a submissions call for short stories, six-word stories, paintings, drawings, essays, and flash fiction. After a slow few months, momentum picked up. Submissions started to pile up, many of which left us incredibly inspired. And now, here we are!

Auroras & Blossoms Creative Arts Journal follows the same model as Auroras & Blossoms Poetry Journal. Each issue will feature at least 10 artists from around the world whose work has moved us in a positive way. We will also include our usual social media tips and recommended creativity tools.

In this issue, we are very excited to introduce you to the works of Elizabeth Smith, Venkatesh Govindarajan, Azelle Elric, Bharati Bolloju, Debra Murphy, Analia Adorni, Emma Wells, Anushka Mishra, Gloria Keh, and Thirupurasundari C J.

Thank you for joining us. We look forward to reading your comments and sharing your inspirational art with the world!

FEATURED WORKS

Will you have a cup of coffee with me?

Short story by G. Venkatesh

Varshita’s passing away left an unpluggable vacuum in Venkat’s life. At 48, he was clueless. No progeny. Must he embrace his solitude in Sweden, and quickly come to terms with it, so as to live the rest of his life usefully, working hard to make the world a better place to live in — a purpose which had guided Varshita in her life? Or must he hope and yearn for true love to feature in his life again? True love which would be an exact replica of what he had received from Varshita.

Här är din cappuccino,’ the girl at the coffee shop called out to Venkat. Here is your cappuccino. He had sought and gotten asylum in coffee, so to say...sipping on the bitter brew which reminded him that life was not sweet. Love had not been a bed of roses, despite the fact that he and Varshita had tried very hard to make it so. They loved each other a lot, but that had not been enough to keep off the evil winds of misfortune from wreaking havoc in their lives, every now and then. Venkat never added sugar to his coffee for that very reason. Why adulterate sorrow with happiness, he thought? Why taint pure pain with pleasure? Why fool oneself with fairy tales? Well, he had seen fairy tales playing out in people’s lives around him over the years. He had seen people complaining about the littlest of sorrows in an otherwise gloriously happy life; refusing to endure a little momentary pain which threatened to sully a continuous stream of pleasure. For him, it had been the opposite. He had acknowledged whatever little joy and pleasure Fate had bestowed on him. Varshita had too, with the utmost generosity in her heart. The fond hope was that being grateful to God for these little joys would bring many more in due course . Innocent desires emanating from innocent, pure, humane hearts.

He asked for another cup of coffee...a large Americano this time, and pondered on. If he could yearn for true love again, though none — friend or family member — had ever mentioned this to him explicitly, how on earth, heaven or hell was he supposed to go with it? What must he actually do? List himself on half a dozen dating websites and wait patiently for something to happen, after sending out ‘letters of interest’ to women he thought were compatible? He was a Professor, and had a lot of work on his plate, and would not really find time to
