COLLEEN’S WEEKLY #TANKA TUESDAY #POETRY CHALLENGE NO. 91, “Magic & Green,” #SYNONYMSONLY

The dry spell no more
rain god waves  conjuring wand
sea water turns  grey
the trees become fresh and bathed
making earth lush emerald
—————————-
need incantations 
to put the unripened fruits
back where they belonged
unluckily plucked in haste 
before they were fully ripe

Weekend Writing Prompt #61 – Quarantine

Can

Someone

help me

find a way

to put

some files in my mind

to 

Quarantine

which do not let me 

forgive and forget

past

allow me to 

live in the present

making my and others life

difficult

so

they cannot

corrupt my mind to

take control

over my brain

with its evil design

to disrupt

my present

allow me

to

live in peace

and enjoy

life

to pass through successfully
or grant me the charge
to control it like my way
accept defeat gracefully

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

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.
