Storm

If I am safely sheltered in a dry secure place, I love storms. The rain and thunderstorms, that is. Not the ones at sea.

Sitting by the window and looking outside at the pitter-patter of the rain, the fragrance of earth slowly soaking the water (petrichor), and the forks of lightning the sky in a spectacular way, it’s a visual and sensual treat.

I’ve never been on the sea in a storm, but what I’ve seen in the movies or tv, it sure is a scary experience. The mere dimensions of them make me glad that I never faced any.

Then there are the storms in teacups. Many people I know are fond of creating these sorts of storms. Any little issue or problem is blown up beyond recognition into a massive thing. I’m glad I am not one of those people. It gets so exhausting to deal with them.

A repost- Three Things Challenge; January 1st

I am sharing this post from 1st January 2019 as a part of Fandango Friday Flashback

Facts

I am not a theorist, in fact I am not a philosopher at all

I go with the fact and get to a conclusion to satisfy the mind

Fact can be funny in a way that sometimes contradict one another

But my shop sells facts only and no theory or conjecture is allowed

The sign at the door says, ” Please leave all fiction and bring facts only”

Then we can sit over a cup of tea and sort out all that bamboozles us

One fact can fit in the reality, but where to put the other that negates it

There must be missing link which I haven’t foreseen, to make a bridge

The true picture will be painted by linking all the points to each other

Much like a dot to dot picture we give our children to play and draw with

Theorist, funny ,shop

Dire

Things are dire when the flag is at half-mast

We don’t know the way home and have succumbed

A victim to those dark whispers in our hearts

Go on, pick up the fallen staff

It’s time to rekindle the flame

Daily Prompts- Begone

Begone racism, scurry away to a dark corner

Where you and others like you belong

It is unfair, echoes the perfunctory sentiments

When faced with this deadly demon of inequality

Our words fall short of the experience that others feel

These typical responses won’t cut the deal this time around

We may be unready to herald this change right now

But the reality is that it’s way past the time for it

Take out the carcass of racism and bury it deep

Let not its’ specter escape, let’s get rid of it altogether

Daily Prompts- Sights and smells of past!

My memory often takes a walk in the past

The sights and smell of favorite places evoking redolence

Remembering the hustle and bustle of bygone days

Breath-less with excitement, running wild with happiness

Hand in the hand of that favorite uncle, who was simpatico

Cognizant of what a six year old would like to do

Taking me to the fair and letting me enjoy all that sticky food

In my memories I go a generation back when I was

A child myself, and not an aging relic that I am now

Daily Prompts- Forgotten

Her inky fingernails scribble on the canvas of life

What are her thoughts that she wants to tell us

Can you ascertain what goes on behind those eyes

That she has screwed shut against the ungracious world

Sitting under the antique pergola of deserted garden

She is waiting for someone to find her truth

Daily Prompts- Blessings

Trust and faith sometimes can be frangible

We pay penalty for losing hope with unhappiness

I would rather sing odes to the blessings which

I and my household are endowed with, innumerable

Nothing epic, all simple ordinary things I can count

But each and everyone one of them makes my heart stout

This gratitude starts the journey initially

And takes me to the road of marvelous discoveries

In response to the following prompts;

YDWP;

Frangible

Blessing, Household, Penalty

Epic

RDP;

Stout

Daily Prompts- A font of wisdom

He sits on that bench under the tree

Gently seeding young mind with wisdom

Children playing around him are now familiar

With his way of starting a conversation

He would come to their aid, his efficacy very valid

His knowledge a font of wisdom, a source of learning

It’s designed to help them unobtrusively without irritation

The children don’t even mind the occasional burp

Always looking for that gentleman in a purple shirt

Daily Prompts- Magical Chariot

Driving my car in those days of yore

I felt as if I had stepped into a magical chariot

It would take me seamlessly to my destination

I didn’t have to cajole or beg for favors

Just a discreet pressure on the paddle and off I went

Enjoying the rush of hot air in winter days

Or blast of cooling waves in summer drives

Sadly it has become a little passé with time

The novelty and wonder faded with constant exposure

How I would like to rekindle that sense of awe and wonder

In response to the following prompts;

YDWP;

Discrete

3TC;

Rush, Hot, Pressure

FOWC;

Cajole

RDP;

Magical
