Daily Prompt ~Dust in the Wind

Posted on

Daily Prompt- Dust in the Wind- Have you made your bucket list? Now’s the time — write about the things you want to do and see before you become dust in the wind.

 

The Things I Want To Do

 

Whatever I’m today 

Because of the choices I have made

By following decisions I took

By following the path I choose 

And do whatever I could

In given circumstances.

Still some desires are there unfulfilled.

Though my age may not permit me,

I would like to climb The Himalayas

Travel around the world

 Dance on the clouds

 Go on a voyage

 Fly with the birds.

 But this is what I can still accomplish 

 Sing a lovely song of love and peace

 Write a poem on friendship, compassion and compatibility

 Give a smile to everyone I meet

 Help someone living his/her dream

 I pray to God please help me to fulfill

 Whatever whimsy ideas come in my mind

 Before I become dust in the wind.

Memories

Forlorn grandmother sitting in a chair at old age home, suddenly smiles visualizing her two grandchildren, a boy and a girl playing their favorite game ‘ Mermaids in trouble’.

They took all the cushions and hid under them, as if trapped inside the sea reefs, while she, forced by them to join the game, wearing a sea diver’s mask pretended to save them.

Their favorite part was her feigning that the damn mask obstructed her view, run here and there clumsily and fall on them; they will roll over each other on the floor laughing hysterically.

How she longs for those days.

Everyday is Friendship Day

Posted on

Somewhere in life

There must be someone

To take your hand

And share the torride day.

Without the touch of friendship

There is no life, and we must fade away.

- RUSKIN BOND

Sourse- Healing into Wholeness

Sourse- Healing into Wholeness

My take on friends and friendship

What are friends there for ?

If not for 
Care, concern and adulation
For being comfortable
In silence and communication
For supporting each other
In every difficult situation
For helping each other
Without humiliation
For accepting each other
Without any discrimination.
———————————

Some Haiku(s) 

1- Friendship can unite

     Different species together

     Miraculous bond

2- True friend and friendship

     Most rare and valuable gift

     Treasure it with care

3- Love, trust, compassion

    Synonymous with friendship

    True friends are a bliss 

4-  If all religions 

      Shed their animosity

       Friendliness survives

5- Who cares for color

     When bond of love is strong

     Friendship matters more

black and white

 

Size does not matter

Caste and creed may be different

Friendship cares for none

affection

Friends! What’s your take on friendship, share with me .

Five Sentence Fiction – Whimsical

wimsical playhouse

Whimsyland

My husband brought me to this place ‘Whimsy land’  to have fun as I always complain of living a boring life, now here  I can dance with the clouds, fly with the butterflies, play with the dolphins or whatever damned activities I can think off and now I should be thankful to him for fulfilling my dreams.

 I have to live here alone for a few days as he has some urgent work to complete then he will come back and take me back.

 It is one month passed and he has not yet come back.

 The staff here said that it is a mental asylum where rich people leave their burdens and pay a good some for that and now I’m to live here forever.

 I’m not complaining as it’s better here as compared to his ‘all work and no fun’ gloomy house which was like a tomb,I’m having lots of fun with the inmates.
