Daily Prompts -No short Cut

Every night before sleep, I take a stroll

Down the memory lane, revisiting

All that has happened, today and in past

It is reviewed and analyzed one by one

Daily events or those of monumental importance

Everything is put under a microscope to examine

There is no short cut in this process

I have to go the long way around and relive

My past over and over again every night

Just as the darkness descends the game starts

I lob the ball in the court of my former self

To ask if I could have done things differently

But as there is no way to change the past

I should give up this futile exercise

( I used to be this person until I realized the truth that worrying over the past events just spoils our present and future)

Daily Prompts- Happily ever after

After the festivities are done with

And it’s time for the couple to leave

Standing on the stairs of the church

Bride tosses the bouquet towards her friends

Though they are envious of her happiness

None of them are ready for tying the knot at present

They don’t want wedding bells tolling for them

All want to avoid the flying flowery bunch

Stepping sideways and ducking down

Wishing this fate for someone else but them

Daily Prompts- Another one bites the dust!

 

Not able to face the reckoning

Another one bites the dust

We sure would love to collar them

All those who are responsible for this

They prop them up with great aplomb and fanfare

But invariably, failure is their fate

A fall on the face, a shamefaced retreat

Why oh why they make such grand promises

It’s either the fault of the gullible people

Or those feeding us such trash

One after the other these resolves

Made by our great leaders lies broken, lifeless

And we mourn the trust that is torn to pieces

By the naked greed and avarice

We see in the eyes of these manipulators

Daily Prompts- Good luck???

The speaker was delivering a fiery speech when a bird dropped something on his head. The audience roared with laughter while he was red in the face with embarrassment. He left his address in the mid and strode off to the water pump to wash off the bird’s poop. Taking his hanky out with a flourish, he wiped his head and strode back to the podium to finish his speech! “If a bird poops on your head, it brings good luck!” He said in a belated apology for his hasty mid-speech departure.

Daily Prompts- Keeping Guard

The crimson blushing sky heralds nightfall

It’s not the time for eternal sleep yet

There are many tasks to be finished until then

The lone wolf stands and keeps guard

Rare shells scattered on the shoreline

He sees the keeper of the secrets approach

And bends its head in acquiescence

Now the duty entrusted to him is done

He retreats and leaves others to complete

The mission that was of utmost importance

Daily Prompts- Pearls of wisdom

The ocean cannot be drained of water

The mind never vacant of ideas

A rule of thumb you can say is that

Never touch live electricity wires

Some truths of life are obvious and

Then there are others that you need to search

If you don’t tie a knot in the learning thread

You can gather wisdom pearl by pearl

Daily Prompts- The power of praise

What is the biggest asset in public and personal dealing?

Lift up the spirit of your co-workers and employees with due praise. Giving the credit they deserve and praising them for a job well done does wonder for the morale. The same principle can be employed for close family and friends.

This doesn’t mean that one shows complete and flagrant disregard for the truth, and heap praise undeservedly. It means that you recognize the positive traits in people around you and encourage them in their strengths.

The simple acknowledgment of a job well done can make someone’s day, and give their morale a big boost. This really increases productivity and builds up the team spirit. Indulging and inspiring others so that they feel valued will benefit us too. Similarly in our personal relationships, if we praise anything good or positive, the people around us not only feel cheered up but our interpersonal relationships are strengthened too.

Daily Prompts – Be the hero

Set the scene and be the hero of your own story

Rescue your own self from the dangers of drudgery

Find something fabulous in each day and enjoy

The feeling of achievement that it gives you

Once you’ve cleaned up the litter of discarded thoughts

Go ahead and do the charitable deeds for others

Because it is best to start from your own home first

And then fix the problems of those around you

Daily Prompts- The play

Her excitement was high as she entered the hall. She finally got the tickets to see the play she wanted to, after a long wait. A bit extra had gotten her a seat with the best view of the stage.

The play was better than her expectations. The actors cruised through the lengthy dialogues with professional ease, holding the audience captive with their performance. After the play, she enjoyed a leisurely dinner at her favorite restaurant.

Only one regret was in her heart and mind. She wished that her husband of forty years could have been here with her today. In his life, they never had enough money to pay for the tickets at the Broadway theater. Now she had gotten the insurance money and could finally fulfill her dream.

Well, that’s life, she thought as she raised a frosty glass to his memory.

Daily Prompts- Translation please!

It is a difficult task to understand the younger generation these days. I sometimes feel as if we need a translator for communicating with them. The new slangs, terms and acronyms are totally confusing for me, and I think people of my generation.

Turns and twists on the modern day terminology are bamboozling and can mean something entirely different than what we think. Alternating between amusement and frustration I try to get what my grand son and his friends mean when they use words like “savage” “goat” “snatched” “100“!!! And don’t get me started on the acronyms! I have to google what these letters stand for. Apparently being a “savage” is a good thing and so is a “goat“- Greatest of all times! I must be spending my life under a stone or something to be so out of touch with the language of today!

The map for language used these days is obscure to me and I have lost the ability to communicate with the younger people.

I am afraid to use old complimentary phrases, however tasteful they maybe because they may mean the total opposite of what I think. One day being a Scrooge may mean something good!
