Daily Prompts- A leader, or not!

You would think that they would be perspicacious

Wise and way ahead of the curve

But it comes as no surprise to any of us

These so-called leaders failing in all departments

Their concerns are for their own safety

Not for the people they swore to serve

Their bank accounts are not affected

Their families safe in isolated luxury

When questioned, they wrangle and complicate

Never a straight answer you can expect

It is time to really think about the course of action

For safeguarding the future of the country

Weekend Writing Prompt # 151- Keepsake

Sammi Cox is the host of Weekend Writing Prompt

Word Prompt





A worn-out book, pages yellow with age

Yet it is a keepsake too precious for me

It was owned by someone I never remembered knowing

She passed away when I was a child myself

In it, I see her name written in her childish handwriting

My mother’s memento!

Blogging Insights # 23. Blogging during Pandemic

Dr Tanya Asks;


1.How has the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic affected your blogging? Are you posting more or less than you used to?

This current crisis has made me busier than usual. I am currently with my daughter and am helping her with the homeschooling of my grandkid. That activity has lessened the time I spend on writing my posts. But since I don’t go out except to walk, so the reading and commenting have increased slightly.

2.What is the tone of your posts these days, happy, sad , serious, worried?

I am an optimist person by nature and if I am not exactly happy, I still am hopeful. My posts are reflecting my mood. I am disturbed by the loss of life and health all over the world. But since worrying never helps with anything, I try to be positive, hopeful and uplifting in my writing.

3. Have you written any posts specifically about the crisis and its effect on your life? If so, please share a link?

I haven’t written any post addressing this pandemic exactly. Yet most of my poems and writing are influenced by it.

Here are a few links;

Daily Prompts- A Message

4. What kinds of posts do you like to read these days? 

I like informative posts that provide genuine information, not the same gloom doom scenarios projected by the media these days.

Besides that, I like to read humor, thought-provoking posts and poems and something that gives us hope. Hope, to my mind is even more important now than ever before. Too much negativity and gloomy outlook have made people depressed these days.



Daily Prompts- Colors

Psychedelic hues swirling

The colors of my mind churning

I laugh

I cry

I am contrite sometimes

And boastful at others

The colors of my mind ever changing

I need grace and elegance to portray

The state of my mind concealed cleverly

Lest I reveal the shambles of thoughts

I maintain my demeanor

Yet a whirlpool is in my thoughts

If we learn from our mistakes, why are we always so afraid to make them?

It is human nature to try to be perfect and making mistakes is an admission that we are not perfect. That’s why we want to avoid making mistakes. It is with living to the age of wisdom that we stop beating ourselves up on making mistakes and actually start learning from them.

How do we know that pleasure is good and pain is bad?

By experiencing them first hand. Like a baby doesn’t know that the bright colorful flame is very hot and can burn. So either some wise parental guidance or by some unfortunate accident, they find it out and are forever wary of touching the flame. The same is with pleasure.

What problem or situation did TV/movies make you think would be common, but when you grew up you found out it wasn’t?

I think it was the concept of happy families in most of the tv shows, that raised my expectations which were dashed down by reality. Siblings are often at odds with each other and the kids with parents.

If you drive, do you speed when no one is watching?   Have you ever run a red light late at night on purpose, particularly if it doesn’t seem to change very quickly?   If you don’t drive, what minor law may you have broken?

When I used to drive, I loved to listen to music and take advantage of empty roads and drive as fast as the law allowed. Intentionally I never broke the law, or drive through the red light.

What positive things are you finding to do to occupy your time right now?


I am having long walks, the weather is beautiful and very few people are around when I walk, early in the morning. It is refreshing and invigorating. And then there is homeschooling too.
