Daily Prompt: Dulled

Daily Prompt: Dulled

You encounter a mysterious man offering you a magic potion that, once sipped, will make one of your senses (sight, hearing, taste, smell, touch) super sharp — but dull the others. Will you sip it, and if so, what sense do you choose?

Do not dull my eyes lest I could not see everything I love dearly

Or the sense of smell which makes me smell all the fragrances lovingly

I can’t do without hearing the sounds all around me clearly

Or the touch of my dear ones which will make me very lonely

Now who can live by making dull the sense of taste foolishly

O mysterious man, go away with your potion to the one

Who has a choice to make a sense super sharp

At the cost of making other senses dull readily

Prompts for the Promptless – Ep. 11 – Remake!

Prompts for the Promptless – Ep. 11 – Remake!

 Remake/ Change

If I have the power to remake

I’ll change everything which is fake

The attitude of people towards life

towards environment, poverty, religion

and their consumption of natures gift

without sharing equally,

which will lessen their strife.

Then I’ll remake the nature of law about death

Let death come with all its novelty

to carry on nature’s law

but

Let old age keep its

innocence, fearlessness, and cheer

like a child

it will make death less fearful and

make its impact mild.

Prompts for the Promptless – Ep. 10 – Saudade

Posted on

.Prompts for the Promptless – Ep. 10 – Saudade

Saudade is a Portuguese word that describes a deep emotional state of nostalgic longing for an absent something/someone that one loves. Moreover, it often carries a repressed knowledge that the object of longing will never return.

Saudade was once described as “the love that remains” after someone is gone. Saudade is the recollection of feelings, experiences, places or events that once brought excitement, pleasure, well-being, which now triggers the senses and makes one live again. It can be described as an emptiness, like someone (e.g., one’s children, parents, sibling, grandparents, friends, pets) or something (e.g., places, things one used to do in childhood, or other activities performed in the past) that should be there in a particular moment is missing, and the individual feels this absence. It brings sad and happy feelings all together, sadness for missing and happiness for having experienced the feeling.

                                                           Father

My father expired when i was 20 years old, just out of my college  after my graduation. Few things he said I always remember , he was witty, humorous and fun loving. He could not stand silence, he will always turned  on the radio. He never said a harsh word to  my mother and his children. Here is my little poem for him,

 

Father said,

get up you lazy bones,

birds are out of nest,

chirping, jumping on the branches.

Getting up late is unhealthy habit                                                                   Image0632

do some exercise or play,

I never listened and slept.

Father said,

only dreaming and playing,

will take you nowhere,

Study hard  and get some knowledge.

Knowledge is power

knowledge will get you connected with all.

I paused and

to play,  I left.

Now father is no more,

my life is in shambles,

my bones all grumble,

all those teachings of  my father,

I remembered and wept.

Prompts for the Promptless – Ep. 7 – True Cost

Prompts for the Promptless – Ep. 7 – True Cost

True Cost is a term for the often-overlooked, comprehensive expense of something, including the time-related and emotional costs.

There is so much to write on this subject and I could not decide how to make it short so I wrote this piece.

The true cost of anything can be judged by the rewards it gives. So while investing in anything be careful and invest wisely.

invest commitment in the marriage get lifetime partnership
invest time in prayer get peace and serenity
invest concern in the environment get a healthy and wealthy environment
invest honesty and support in friendship get true friends and joy
invest love and sincerity in a relationship get a strong relationship
invest money in seeds, flower and trees get healthy, beautiful surrounding
invest hard work and zeal in everything you do get success in every field
invest in buying pets get love, loyalty, and unconditional love

SUNDAY POST : Sentimental Value

SUNDAY POST : Sentimental Value

I’m  sentimental about people but not about things or places, so I thought but when  I saw my mother’s swing, all  alone waiting for someone to caress, as if waiting for my mothers touch not knowing she will never come back.

Strength

Posted on

So you think you are a very wise woman

you let go  your children to  grow

you never interfered in their matters

you allowed them to fight their own battle

you made them tough and positive

you smile proudly on your achievements

But,

the moment you hear they are sick, suffering

all you want to do to is to hug them, cuddle them

wrap your arms around them

to hide them from all evils

you don’t want them to suffer

you want to be there always to protect them

knowing well

you will not be there forever to look after them

how love makes one weak

Or

it is your strength?          kids5

Aspiration

Posted on

There comes a stage or rather age in life

Where aspiration, expectations, and needs

All merge into each other and you aspire,

Expect and need a world,

Without hunger, poverty and sickness

A world

Without boundaries, discrimination and terrorism

A world full of

Love, compassion,  and friendship

A world where religion is compatibility and respect for each other

A religion which embraces every one with open heart.

 

Pride

Posted on

Life is a mixed bag of
hopes and disappointments
dreams and realities
victories and defeats
triumphs and disasters
sometimes you win
sometimes you lose
sometimes you have to  run against the tide
sometimes you have to run with the tide
make compromises
don’t lose your heart
don’t complain
count your blessings
be proud of what you have achieved
keep your composure
spine stretched
shoulders straight
heart full of gratitude
head held with pride

~ Indira

Elegance

is all about keeping one’s grace,style and composure

in all aspects of life

whether having success and happiness

or feeling little low and  down

or elegance is rather being like The Sun

who keeps its elegance, beauty and composure

always intact

whether rising up or whether setting down
