Nightmare or dreams

I dream of the grand halls, gleaming marble

Being welcomed warmly by the hosts like royalty

A smile plastered on my face, hiding the fears

Of failure and tripping up in my way to the dias

I come up and face all those waiting for me there

Am I the representative of the masses gathered

Or am I the one responsible of the running of the

Affairs of this grandiose setup, the one in charge

This thought is enough to jerk me out of that very

Uncomfortable and uncharacteristic dream at once

The burdens of this liability can wreck your peace

So dreaming of power and grandeur are not for me

Dreams which are a derivative of a desire to fix

The issues which we face today or a wish to be rid of them

Three Things Challenge

The Halloween party was over and a tired and sleepy Sam accompanied his mom home. All the kids had a smashing time at the party, which was co-hosted by parents of a couple of kids from his class. They had come up with this idea last year and now they would be doing it on a rotation basis. The idea was simple. The kids would gather after school , at chosen venue. They all chipped in for the refreshments and the kids would dress up in their costumes and go together for trick and treating to the neighborhood. After they were done, a pizza dinner followed and then back home.

Today Sam was a wearing a Batman costume. He was in love with this superhero character and was always looking of ways to put on his cape and mask. ” Mom, I am going to put my costume in the washing machine. I spilled some apple juice on it” Sam said. His mom suppressed her smile and agreed, ruffling his hair. Thank God, Halloween is over for another yeas, she thought to herself.

Riding my bike to and from school

Every day morning and afternoon

How I enjoy the wind touching my face

Every day morning and afternoon

The helmet is a bit of nuisance I feel

But I know I have to follow the rules

When I pedal my bike faster and faster

My one foot working in tandem with other

It feels like I am flying through the air

The feeling has no parallel, I think it is

Far better than sitting on my couch at home

Watching the Telly, and hibernating not for me

Riding my bike to and from the school

Every morning and afternoon

 

You can guess from this poem that I loved to ride my bike and enjoyed it better than sitting at home in front of the television.

The unexpected happening

 

Jane was sitting and working on her laptop in a street side bistro. A slight cough intruded on her concentration. As she turned around, a man was standing behind her. Jane gave him a curious look. Something seemed strange about him. “May I help you?” She asked. “I am the representative of a pet food company, I was wondering if you would like to try our brand of pet food for your dog?”The man explained and tried to give a can of dog food to her. “But, I don’t have a dog or any pet for that matter” Jane clarified. “So this dog isn’t yours” He asked. “Which dog?” “This cute little guy sitting near you” replied the man.

Jane looked around, she didn’t see any dog, cute or otherwise near them. She began to think that this man was playing a practical joke on her. She forced out a laugh and said ” I think you are trying to trick me into some sort of prank, there is no dog around here that I see” The man looked incredulous, ” What do you call this?” He was pointing to a spot in front of her. Jane looked down and said that there was nothing there. ” Nothing! This is nothing?” He stooped down an in an instant he had picked up a small, unique looking dog from the pavement, into his arms! The dog licked his hand with a tiny pink tongue and gave a small bark. Jane didn’t know what to believe. This man had, to her mind conjured the dog out of thin air!

Jane was amazed and bewildered at the same time. She had to believe the evidence of her own eyes and she knew that it wasn’t possible to just imagine the dog out of thin air.

Tell a story # 2

Given this prompt by Tom, The slumdog Soldier to tell a story about this picture

He was a handsome animal. One red fox, looking to survive and the find a mate. He wasn’t very fussy about food. Carnivores or herbivores, it was all according to the availability of food. Today the bees were in the field, buzzing and collecting nectar for honey, and he was following the scent of a vixen. He hoped that he won’t have much of a competition in wooing her.

And now he could smell the scent of her. A careful survey of the field and he caught a glimpse of golden red fur. All his senses on alert, he approached the vixen to impress her with his beautiful bushy tail. He was going to have a family soon, before the spring season was over

Hang man

Do you remember this game? One of us would write the required number of dashes on the black board, after the class was over, and the friends playing would try to guess the name or word that was in the first players mind. The fishing for the clues was fun. Often the whole game was nuked by a lucky guess from one of the other group. I remember once a friend asked the name of a movie, and one luck guess was the letter ‘ J’ ! Today’s prompt took me to that game today. The name of the movie was;

Those daring young men in their Jaunty jalopies.

I wonder if kids still play this game. Have you done that?

Mitigating circumstances

What do you mean, it was a mixup? How can you cook this instead of the five course dinner I ordered? she demanded. The woman was besides herself with anger. There was a number of gourmet pizzas arrangement on the kitchen table, ready to be cooked and served piping hot to the guests. The chef hired for catering the party tried to explain the mitigating circumstances behind the mixup but she was so busy berating him that it was difficult to get a word in. Her tirade laced with calumny and insults was making the matters worse.

“Hey, Tracy” intervened her husband in a calming manner. “There has to be an intelligent solution to this problem. Let’s think and work out something before the guests start arriving” ” Sir, if I may” the chef tried to offer his opinion again. “Yes, go ahead” said the husband, gesturing his wife to listen to the poor guy. ” Sir if you could tell your guests that today is a theme party tonight and today’s theme is Italy, then if we serve gourmet pizza in all the different flavors of Italy, they will think it is great fun”

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “television.” Talk about your favorite show, past, present, or future, or about the apparatus itself. Enjoy!

Nopes, thank you!

I don’t enjoy watching television these days. I have much better things to do with my time. In the good old days, that is, when I was younger,I did enjoy some of the tv programs but now it seems to be more of the same. I absolutely don’t want to watch any news related programs and same about the rest of the entertainment. I would rather write my blog or read a book. I would even prefer to do my jigsaw puzzle than watch television.

And for my entertainment I like to catch a movie. Specially with family or besties. I even enjoy going on my own, specially if it’s a movie that only I have a taste for.

So thanks but no, thanks. I rather not watch television

The Friday Four #2

Rory’s new Questions for Friday

A New feature for Our Friday’s Together –

The Friday Four

1] Do you think our society could exist without laws?

It can exist, but not like a civilized society. We have to have some sort of rules to govern our behavior with. We either have the laws a government imposes or those made by individuals themselves. Without laws it will be chaos only.

2] How important is the freedom of speech?

Very, as long as I am not hurting anyone else’s dignity and infringing on the sentiment of others. That is my feelings. Someone else might disagree.

3] How long do you think humans have left on planet earth?

As long as they will act as human beings and not lunatics. If they are going to drain all the resources and wage war on each other they will accelerate their own destruction.

4] Using your mind or losing your mind, where is the fine line between madness and creativity?

Using one’s mind to create something good or beneficial for the humanity is on one side of the scale and getting obsessed with something to the extent of losing one’s ability to reason is on the other side of the scale. There is a wide gulf between these two points. Only a mad scientist can be in the cusp of the two!

If you like to try these questions, head over to A Guy Called Bloke and K9 Doodlepips, and have a go at them.

I have a dream

I have a dream that I deem

Has the power to change us all,

If we could just adapt ourselves to it

Being affable and kind, Loving and thoughtful

And treat each other with due consideration

Not to be adamant in our demand of unjust return

It need not be a chore but a choice of our good nature

To be the best that we can be, with the generosity and good will
