Just Pay Me Enough

Just Pay Me Enough

I remember so vividly the day we met

It was my interview for the job but I felt the connect

The team was so good and the promises of growth, even better

I was on the moon when I got the appointment letter

 

I was full of zeal and energy

To show that passion and ambition, mine and yours were, in complete synergy

I worked hard to contribute the best I could

And you appreciated it all as a leader should

 

Together you had said we will grow

I agreed to your every word without beating a brow

The days were good, weeks better

I worked hard to keep up with your directives in words and letter

 

Time flew and together we grew

Your appreciation would make us happy, at times one and at times a few

There were opportunities from your peers and foes

But we were your team and they always would get our no’s

 

Time changed with the slump and slowdown

But we stayed with you agreeing not to bow down

There were no raises and there were no increments

But we never looked elsewhere and stuck by you through these predicaments

 

Then came the pandemic that made us all shiver

But my trust in you did not even once quiver

I thought we would see the times through together 

Grow out of it with our bonds yet stronger

Then came the news of redundancies and layoff

But it didn’t bother me as I thought I have the bonds of togetherness to show off 

Struck me like a blow that my name was on the list

I took it in my stride as I thought you would have tried everything against the tryst

 

How much money you want when you asked

I was taken aback was the bond of togetherness all masked

I am not greedy don’t want a fortune

But wish you could hold my hand till the times were more opportune

Can I put a value on the gone by time?

And forget my zeal, enthusiasm, hard work of years just over a chime?

I wish you well know your monies will come as once again you reach your prime

So just pay me enough to buy back that opportune time

Weekend Writing Prompt #32 – Reflection

Challenge

Prose Challenge – Write a story in 150 words where a character sees their reflection and is surprised by what they find.

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

REFLECTION

Reflection of inner thoughts

Escapes not

From wise eyes

Let, then,  reflect

Empathy and compassion

Care and  love

Trust and gratitude

In your eyes

Or wear the real face with courage

Never deceit with a mask

 

Nest- The Daily Post

Nest- The Daily Post

Come quickly with me lest the sun sinks into the luring west!

So there’s light to see where an eagle built its lofty nest.

Daring, youthful thinking slipped into this proud bird’s brain.

Or was it confident trust resting in its regal veins.

You see the tree the eagle chose its days in which to live

Looks old and weak and gnarled, like naught it ere could give.

You may be the mighty eagle.

You may be the worn out tree.

No matter what your role is here.

There is still a need for thee.

Solitary- The Daily Post

solitary
not a sing leaf for its glory
remembering 
the days of its youth
birds and children
chirping and playing 
around it
when a single day 
would not pass
without a jamboree

Limerick Challenge Week 50: Goals

All I want to write like others with an ease 

My mind goes blank as if to tease

Words keep dancing

I keep pouncing

To arrange them for a story to please

The Daily Post- Inevitable

Posted on

Inevitable

Inevitable is

Failing and falling

Inevitable is

Life and death

Inevitable is

Faults and failures

Inevitable is

Disappointments

But never give up

Faith, courage and 

Dedication

As giving up is a sin

And an obstacle

In your path to win

FLOWER OF THE DAY- HIBISCUS

Flower of the Day – January 17, 2016 – Tulip

 

Hibiscus

Hibiscus-

Hibiscus Flowers where ever I look,
Reds and blues and the pretty white,
Freshly taken from a picture book,
They fill me with great delight.
Indoor Hibiscus Flowers delicate yellow,
Potted plants in my snug flat,
Great beauty that turns me mellow,
To all Gardeners I take off my hat.
The hibiscus is a flower to please,
Grown in a warm and temperate clime.
Reds, blues and whites do tease,
With glowing colours so sublime.

Writing 101, day 11: Writing and not writing

Writing 101, day 11: Writing and not writing-

What do you do when you’re not writing? How do you reset and return to this dashboard, refreshed? What do you need in your day-to-day life to maintain balance-Running? Yoga? Gardening? Painting? Cooking?

 

My day to day life is well balanced between three to four hours, one in the morning and three at night when there is no disturbance, for reading and writing, morning walks, as and when my body permits, household jobs, yoga exercises, breathing exercises, reading books, watching my favorite TV reality shows of music and dance.

I have assigned three to four hours, one hour in the morning and three hours at night when there is no disturbance, for reading and writing on my laptop.

I feel fresh and recharged whenever I’m brimming with an idea to write.

I firmly believe that to keep up a balance in life always take a break.

When there is unrest or apprehension

When in life there is lots of tension

Take a break and retrospect

When you are overworked and tired

When you are stuck in old routines

Take a break and take good rest

When there is no fun in life

Life is taking you for a ride

Take a break and meditate

Daily Prompt- I Want to Know What Love Is

Posted on

Daily Prompt- I Want to Know What Love Is

Love is an amalgam of many emotions. It has different meaning for different persons.

One thing is certain that love is the binding force between every creature in this universe.

“The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. And that’s what you’ve given me. That’s what I’d hoped to give you forever.” ―Nicholas Sparks

I can’t define what love is but I can definitely say what is not love.

 

प्यार

प्रेम क्या है मुझे पता नहीं प्रेम क्या नहीं है वो बताती हूँ |

प्यार रास नहीं,रंग रोमांस नहीं
मन में पल भर को उठा
कोई खुमार नहीं|
प्यार सौदा नहीं,कोई व्यापर नहीं
तू ना दे तो में ना दूं
ऐसा कारोबार नहीं|
सृष्टि बस मेरी,किसीऔर का अधिकार नहीं
जब हो सोच ऐसी
फिर तो वहां प्यार नहीं|
प्यार अकृतज्ञता नहीं
इर्ष्या और स्वार्थ नहीं
कटुता और हिंसा से
इसको सरोकार नहीं|
इसके बाद जो भी बचे वोही तो प्यार है
तुम स्वयं प्यार हो बाकि सब बेकार है|
