Daily Prompts- Accidental meeting

Sometimes an accidental meet up can vivify your day

I collided with someone at the exit to a store

It was an inexorable collision as the momentum of both of us was great

But after we each rubbed the part hurt in head-on meeting

We took a fresh look at each other and had a simultaneous epiphany

Oh it’s you! We said at the same time giving each other a hug

A friend from school reunited by a happy accident

Daily Prompts- I’m feeling….

Yes! We all can correlate our emotions with our circumstances

Anticipating something good about to happen and you are happy

The climate of dread and gloom awakens feelings of apprehension

Feelings of elation act like a torch to the haystack and light up

The mood all around with sparks of joy and pleasure

Sometimes the anticipation of something generates feelings which are

Often more powerful than those that actual events arouse in us

Daily Prompts- Enough is enough

There is a limit

To what any reasonable person would put up with

That someone you thought was perfect is perfidious and agastopic

Can cause intense frustration and results in chaffed ego

Can one reconcile the facts with expectations and accept

Can one compromise to that extent as to let go of valued standards

Or is it better to cut one’s losses there and then and move on

Because we all have a limit which cannot be crossed

Daily Prompts- In love

How will you describe love

Falling in love or rising with it

It’s a sentiment that can make us act differently

Bizarre antics and behaviors to attract the one we love

We profess undying devotion and attachment

In loving others we sometimes grow introspective

We think about all that is important for us in life

How we live and leave our footprints in the world

How love changes us and makes us better

The seasons of love come and go and what remains

Is what we learn in giving selflessly and unconditionally

Daily Prompts- Lets Suppose

Let’s suppose for a minute here

That this terrible pandemic hasn’t happened

That we are still living the life we were living

Enjoying the carefree lifestyle and its perks

Using up earth’s resources and spewing fumes into its atmosphere

The din created by the felling of trees is loud in the air

No cool zephyr stirring the leaves of the trees

The terrain of mountains getting effected by climate change

Temperatures rising and icecaps melting at alarming rate

Now let us get back to reality and ask ourselves

This pandemic has given us all a pause to think about

Where we are headed and what we are doing

Is this the right way to treat the only home we have

I know it is unlikely, but we really should change

They way we live, travel, consume and abuse the treasures

Given to us in abundance by nature!

Daily Prompts- Stay a while

Stay a while and sit beside me

Stay so that this incessant clamoring

Of my needy heart quieten a little

The turmoil of my emotions subsides a bit

Stay till I catch my breath and breathe in

Your fragrance and presence my love

Stay till the evening turns to dusk

And we are together in the sapphire stardust

Daily Prompts- Words and thoughts

One after the other they arrive

Traveling in a caravan, in a straight line

Some are sensible others just gibberish

I am proud of only some of them

The rest can fall into the same old same old category

Don’t listen to them for its yada yada yada

You might have guessed that I am talking about my words and thoughts

That I write and try to arrange in poems or prose

It is actually feasible to avoid the trauma

If you just pick up the ones you like and leave the others behind

YDWP;

Proud

Feasible, Sensible, Trauma

Daily Prompts- Eyes shut tight

Kate has asked us for her Friday Fun challenge;

Post a photo, write a verse, get creative on what vastness means to you
link it back here to share with others

How unfortunate that we humans are so arrogant

That we’re bent on destroying this blue sphere

Smiling and not caring a jot for the havoc

We have brought upon our home in a thoughtless way

We cannot survive independent of our habitat

The woodsy forests and sandy beaches

Majestic mountains rising high into the sky

The vastness and beauty of our oceans

All marred by our actions and so-called progress

This attitude has to be replaced by a more sane approach

(All images aren’t my own)

Daily Prompts- Time traveler

A time traveler from bygone years

Suddenly arrives in the world of today

He would think that all of the modern technology

As magical and the users of it as witches and wizards

Television in every home would give him the illusion

That we all possess super powers which enable us

To look into future and the past with the click of one button

What fun it would be to play the host to him

And show him all the things that we can achieve

Using new devices and inventions at our disposal

How we can cover wide tracts of land in minutes

And fly in air for thousands of miles in huge metal birds

But do we, the users of these incredible facilities

Ever appreciate all that is gifted to us by the power of invention?

Daily Prompts- Whims

Your actions and demands are so whimsical

I would say you are persnickety and a bit batty

The demands you make are like electric flux

Up one moment and down the other, ever changing

I am exhausted with the effort to meet your wants

One day I will end up in a cage and then it will be

Game over for me for I am at the end of my tether
