Look closely

Look closely

Even a drop of water

Holds a world captivating

With rainbow hues and

Wonder caught in it

Look closely

At the world around you

And you will be blown away

With the beauty in everything

A feeling of immense gratitude

Will overwhelm you

Being gifted with

A world of beauty

Look closely!

Clean energy project

The image is from shutterstock.com.

For the visually challenged writer, the photo shows a schoolboy pushing a table with his science fair project, which is on wind energy.


I woke from a sound sleep with a start, turned on my nightstand light, and realized that I had fallen asleep before I had put finishing touches to my clean energy project for the science fair being held in our school tomorrow.

Frantically, I started making the labels for the different parts of my project and making sure that the wind Mills blades were glued on properly and could move when I blew on them. At last, when I was done I gave my project a satisfied look. I thought I had done a great job and was sure that tomorrow I would win at least a recommendation from the judges. Maybe a prize too.

My parents had helped me think up this idea for the project and they were great proponents of advocating clean renewable energy.

I went back to sleep with a smile on my face!

A letter a week- S- Samual the seal

Place – snow

Emotion – smiling

Adjective – smug

Verb – slide

My animal – seal

Samual, the seal liked to slide in the snow. You would often see him smiling and enjoying his favorite hobby.

Sonny was his brother but wasn’t as friendly as Samual. He hated that his brother was so popular so he planned a prank to sabotage him.

He lured Samual to a place where the snow wasn’t firm and watched smugly expecting Samual to fall into the fresh snow needing help to get out. But Samual was no novice! He expertly navigated the snowy curves and came up a winner.

Neither black or white but grey

For some people grey color to equates to dull

But I love all shades of grey for its calmness

I love wearing grey with a splash of bright colors

And grey sky is a harbinger of welcome rains

Smoky eyes used to be my favored makeup look

And what could be better than a pair of grey shoes

You might have guessed from my poem

That I really love all shades of grey

WDYS # 145 -A Roundup post

The canvas of life is blank at the start

We carve our path, our design on it as we grow

Some people offer us love and support

Other award us harsh criticism and judgment

Everything serves a purpose as we move along

The finished painting at the end is a result of

Both the good and the bad we have faced

Never be afraid to paint your own canvas!
