Weekend Writing Prompt #60 – Weave

26 words

weaved a dream
with the rainbow colors
the colors faded with
the wear and tear of time
leaving the contentment
at least I
dared to 
dream

Weekend Writing Prompt #59 – Typewriter

Weekend Writing Prompt #59 – Typewriter

If I had an option, I would have presented every Doctor I went for my treatment, with a typewriter.

They are the lot blessed with the most illegible handwriting, of course after me, but I’m no doctor so no one is compelled to read my writing except my poor teachers.

Nowadays Doctors are using computers but in the prescription sheet, they still oblige us, with the matter god knows who can understand.

The typewriters were the most modern thing for us, in my childhood, which was used in offices only. Or maybe some people who could afford personal typewriter used it. I was ignorant about that.

All my colleagues, in the office I worked, knew how to type with a good speed and that too without even a glance at the keyboard. I found it amazing.

Though I tried really very hard, this one skill I couldn’t master, yet.

Weekend Writing Prompt #51 – Raindrops

Weekend Writing Prompt #51 – Raindrops

Word Prompt- Raindrops

Photo Prompt

Thanks, Sammi for the prompts.

Challenge

Prose Challenge – Write a story on any theme, with an upper limit of 250 words, set in the rain.

Poetry Challenge – Write an acrostic poem, where the first letter of each line spells “Raindrops” as it is read from top to bottom.

 

I was watching raindrops falling on the tree leaves and sliding down on the floor playing sliding game as we used to do in our childhood.

We siblings used to drench in the rains requesting mother to make hot pakoras and tea.

She did, after scolding for dirtying the house with mud but the fun digested everything.

Though old had taken such fun away, but we had our share of fun. 

So calming down and enjoying the bicker of rain against the glass window is still so much fun.

The first shower of monsoon made me nostalgic.

 I went out to get some fun and get drenched as I did in the childhood.

My neighbors, hearing me sneezing hard and shivering poured advises, like what I should do and what should I take.

Someone brought black pepper Rasam, the best cure for the cold, while the other one ginger tea. They did not rest until they made me change my wet clothes and wrapped me in the blanket.

They started telling each other all sorts of stories about how a simple cold can cause pneumonia or some other dangerous disease if not treated properly and one even recited how her distant relative died after suffering from a simple looking cough and cold.

Between all this hullabaloo one thing became clear that everyone is a doctor of some sort and my neighbors loved and cared for me their old neighbor and am not a lonely and abandoned person in this world.

Weekend Writing Prompt #33 – Time

https://sammiscribbles.wordpress.com/2017/12/16/weekend-writing-prompt-33-time

Word Prompt

 Time

Photo Prompt

Challenge

Prose Challenge – Write a story in 175 words where the central theme is time travel.

Poetry Challenge – Write a poem of no more than 20 lines where the first line:

  • starts with the word “Time”
  • is repeated at least twice

 

Time, I thought, would teach me

How to forget the pain as 

time is a great healer they say

Time would teach me, I thought,

how to face the storms

and sail through

I thought time would teach me

to accept and live in harmony

with the universe

But at the end I found

Time stands still

neither stops you

Nor forces you

in your journey through life

You learn yourself 

art of living 

or fail

Time is just a mute spectator,

of your arrival, your journey

and your departure
