Daily Prompts- Have Pity

Have pity on me

Don’t ask me to

Ascend the scales

And that too under

Your scrutiny, I can’t bear

It sends shivers through my body

To face this humiliation

It’s a subtle plot to make me feel

Wretched and marginalized

I know you are collaborating

With my mortal enemies

To embarrass me because

I weigh more than you think I should

JusJoJan # 27- Dazzle & Daily Prompts

Linda is the host of JusJoJan.

Today’s prompt is; Dazzle

Given to us by : Debbie

~*~

Blinking in the sunlight that dazzles my eyes,

Here I am sitting in the shade of that big tree in my yard

It peaks through the green leaves, playing hide and seek

Showing me how nature can be out teacher

All things that live, live in harmony with each other

I sit and ponder upon the intricacies of my life

Scarce is the wisdom that I seek

Sagacity of an owl, or that of an old woman

Either will work for me, for I am floundering

For many a blunders I have made

Learning cannot teach wisdom, only experience can

But we shy away from new challenges, preferring the routine

I have to be bold like the rays of sunshine

That travel huge distances and venture everywhere

JusJoJan # 26- Busy & Daily Prompts

Linda is the host of JusJoJan.

Today’s prompt is: Busy

Given to us by Saumya

Thank you for this prompt!

~*~

Are you too busy to talk?

Too busy to get in touch with your family?

I understand that your life is hectic and even chaotic.

And when you move out of your parents home, you don’t feel the obligation to keep in touch.

But do you know that they wait for you to call or text? To let them know how you are doing, faring in life. The wistful glances towards the phone or the front door tells of their desire to hear from you.

They wander to your room and rearrange the stuff you’ve left behind with love and care.

Live your life but never be too busy to say hello to your family. They long to hear your voice.

Daily Prompts- Creating Divide

In your grandiose way of viewing things

You see not one nation but people divided

On color, ethnicity and language

If it were up to you, big planes load of people

Would be refused entry into your country

Rebuffed and ridiculed, rejected and slammed

Yet you want to implement your policies

And don’t care about decency or humanity

We don’t identify each other as them and us

We see all as brothers and sisters

Building walls and creating hatred won’t stop

The common people from opposing your creed

Daily Prompts- Looking back

Looking out of my back door, I see the world on a pause. People in their gardens, basking in the sun and tending to their flower beds. I feel content and peaceful out here not affected by the hectic pace of life out front. Here the hammock is swaying lazily in the wind, a blanket tossed carelessly if needed. It is clear to me, if I take a little time from my busy life and step out from the back door, I will have a different view of life!

Daily Prompts- I refuse

I refuse to be picture perfect

No more an advocate for the poster girl beauty

I am me, with all my imperfections and flaws

And I won’t surrender to the convention

I say goodbye with no regrets to youth

And welcome with open arms the comfort of age

Gone are the days when I would sacrifice

My ease for the sake of looking pretty

If there are bags under my eyes, no worries

For they are testimony to a life lived well

The lines on my face tell the story of my enjoyment

Of what absurdities I’ve seen in the world

I am keen to acknowledge that I am no longer

A spring chicken, but a lady in my golden age

With no necessity for hiding under makeup

The grace old age has bestowed on me

Let the wisdom of years guide me

And make my life even richer and better

Daily Prompts- Birds At play

Red-breasted Robin tries to play hide and seek

The green leaves of the tree cannot camouflage

Its beautiful colors and hues in the spring

As I look through the glass pane, I see

The antics of these brilliantly colored birds in nature

And I am entranced with their tricks and tactics

I can spend hours watching them twittering and chirping

No movie has held my attention as these feathered friends do

No need for any validation to sit here and watch

( This poem is inspired by Marilyn and her beautiful pictures of birds)

Daily Prompts- Gimme some tea!

A tiring trip to the mall

Ends in fatigue and aching feet

Gimme a cup of sweet strong tea

Or invite me to nap on your couch

I know it’s an egregious abuse of your hospitality

But my needs make me selfish and demanding

Shed some light on the reason for which

We scour the shops to find the best bargains

If I could torch all my ambitions to be

The best-dressed lady of my acquaintance

I could just count my zzzz and slumber on the mat

And never head to a store or mall again

JusJoJan # 19- Gobbledygook & Daily Prompts

Linda is the host of JusJoJan

Today the prompt is;

Gobbledygook

Given to us by; Jim

~*~

Beth barely suppressed her yawn. The technical gibberish, or as her pa was fond of saying, gobbledygook was boring in the extreme. But she was attending this class so that she could help her dad with the paperwork at the farm. She had just finished high school and her pa wanted her to learn how to maintain the financial records of the farm. He had even bought a used computer from his friend. Beth was no fan of book learning but she loved working on her dad’s farm. If she learned to use the computer, the pressure on her to find a job would ease off. Now all she had to do was to learn how to make excel sheets on the computer so that the farm’s expenses could be recorded properly. It was the time that they too moved into the twenty-first century.

She was happy mucking out the horse stables and keeping the cows fed and clean. Her brother had simply said that he can’t do it. He was interested in frivolous things like cars and movies and liked to spend all his time with his friends. That’s why pa had pinned all his hopes on Beth.
