21 December 2018

Copyright – Adam Ickes

Sunny, who’s both feet had been amputated,  when he was four had long back accepted his disability and tried to be always happy lest grandma becomes sad, suddenly requested his grandma’ I want shoes! ‘
Grandma, who was taking him for a ride on his wheelchair, looked sadly at him.
‘ Don’t look so sad dear, I want them for my best friend, he cannot buy shoes and cannot play without them,’ said he.
Grandma lovingly showered blessings on him.
He laughed ‘ One day, with your blessings I am going to climb Mount Everest.

You want to bet?

Poem For Halloween

Posted on

A Month of Mini Writing Challenges 2017- day 30

Write a spooky poem in 13 lines for Halloween.

 

‘Your neighbor is spooky’ 

warned my friend  

but I never paid a heed

how can I believe until I see her

performing a  spooky deed

then one day when she cut hand 

and spilled not a drop of blood

I found it terrifying indeed

but she danced and sang swirling her head

with one hand in full speed

so blood-curdling was the sight 

I thought of taking a flight 

and to the nearest exit, I hurried

A Month of Mini Writing Challenges 2017- Day 28

Write a story in less than 100 words that open with, “There once was a castle…”

 

There once was a castle, standing in its full glory serving its masters, witnessing many battles. Masters came and gone, seasons came and gone but it was unaffected hiding in its womb many secrets about its masters like a loyal servant.

 It witnessed hanging and burning of people in the pretext of practicing witchcraft till one queen ended all this. 

Some believed witchcraft was an important religious, cultural as well as political issue and for vendetta or greed at local and national level. 

The castle must have felt ashamed for the cruelty of its masters.

A Month of Mini Writing Challenges 2017- Day 25

Write a story in  75 words or less about an encounter with a stranger.

 

 

‘The stranger was asking me, ‘what shall I do now?’ 

‘You should know, why ask me?

‘It’s your dream, you should know. You might have seen me somewhere.’ 

‘No I haven’t get lost.’

 ‘’For that, you’ll have to wake up from your sleep.’ See the impudence, he was smiling.

Irritated I pushed him and got a hard slap in return.

My sister was shaking me, ‘why did you push me off the bed, you idiot’.


 

I opened the door as soon as the doorbell rang.

A stranger was standing there.

‘Why did you open the door without asking? You should see from the peephole first.’

‘I was expecting the pizza boy’, I mumbled as if giving an excuse.

I was irritated,’ strangers shouldn’t come knocking on the door.’

‘I’m your new neighbor, next time don’t open the door without inquiring.’

I was feeling like an idiot.

You’re on your way to work and a new, strange-looking shop has opened overnight.  You are drawn to it and go in but what – or who – is inside?  Tell us in less than 100 words.

 

A blood red painted shop with a signboard in white ‘KILLING IS FUN, JOIN IN’ was strange enough for me to enter the shop. It was full of various kinds of Mannequins.

The receptionist, with a counter full of knives, invited,’  choose any knife, put the face of the one you want to kill on any mannequin and stab as much you like, you’ll feel light-hearted.’

My obvious choice was my rude boss.

I stabbed to my heart’s content.

Delight, I turned and noticed my boss entering the shop.

His face was still intact on the mannequin.

A Month of Mini Writing Challenges 2017-Day 18- Shopping List

Posted on

A Month of Mini Writing Challenges 2017-Day 18– The prompt is “shopping list”.  The format and length are your choice.

shopping list, oh shopping list

where do you hide when I need you most

enormous products in the market

confuse me and without you, I’m lost

you know well I am dependent on you

so please don’t play hide and seek with me

or I’ll load my home with the things 

I don’t need

and not with the things I needed most

Vengeance Spree

‘Can you see the horses talking in human voice?’

‘There is nothing you drunken fool and after one bottle even stones talk to you. ‘She switched off the light and was gone.

They came near haughtily, ‘we are ghost of horses you killed either take either to revenge or for meat.’

‘I can’t even dream of that, I love horses,’ I stammered.

‘You human beings are not reliable; you’ll not shy away from eating even human beings if starving.’

’I can’t even dream of it. ‘I was shaking.

‘Better not.’ They said menacingly, ‘we are on a vengeance spree tonight.’
