Daily Prompts- Creating Divide

In your grandiose way of viewing things

You see not one nation but people divided

On color, ethnicity and language

If it were up to you, big planes load of people

Would be refused entry into your country

Rebuffed and ridiculed, rejected and slammed

Yet you want to implement your policies

And don’t care about decency or humanity

We don’t identify each other as them and us

We see all as brothers and sisters

Building walls and creating hatred won’t stop

The common people from opposing your creed

Daily Prompts- Looking back

Looking out of my back door, I see the world on a pause. People in their gardens, basking in the sun and tending to their flower beds. I feel content and peaceful out here not affected by the hectic pace of life out front. Here the hammock is swaying lazily in the wind, a blanket tossed carelessly if needed. It is clear to me, if I take a little time from my busy life and step out from the back door, I will have a different view of life!

Daily Prompts- I refuse

I refuse to be picture perfect

No more an advocate for the poster girl beauty

I am me, with all my imperfections and flaws

And I won’t surrender to the convention

I say goodbye with no regrets to youth

And welcome with open arms the comfort of age

Gone are the days when I would sacrifice

My ease for the sake of looking pretty

If there are bags under my eyes, no worries

For they are testimony to a life lived well

The lines on my face tell the story of my enjoyment

Of what absurdities I’ve seen in the world

I am keen to acknowledge that I am no longer

A spring chicken, but a lady in my golden age

With no necessity for hiding under makeup

The grace old age has bestowed on me

Let the wisdom of years guide me

And make my life even richer and better

Daily Prompts- Birds At play

Red-breasted Robin tries to play hide and seek

The green leaves of the tree cannot camouflage

Its beautiful colors and hues in the spring

As I look through the glass pane, I see

The antics of these brilliantly colored birds in nature

And I am entranced with their tricks and tactics

I can spend hours watching them twittering and chirping

No movie has held my attention as these feathered friends do

No need for any validation to sit here and watch

( This poem is inspired by Marilyn and her beautiful pictures of birds)

Daily Prompts- Gimme some tea!

A tiring trip to the mall

Ends in fatigue and aching feet

Gimme a cup of sweet strong tea

Or invite me to nap on your couch

I know it’s an egregious abuse of your hospitality

But my needs make me selfish and demanding

Shed some light on the reason for which

We scour the shops to find the best bargains

If I could torch all my ambitions to be

The best-dressed lady of my acquaintance

I could just count my zzzz and slumber on the mat

And never head to a store or mall again

JusJoJan # 19- Gobbledygook & Daily Prompts

Linda is the host of JusJoJan

Today the prompt is;

Gobbledygook

Given to us by; Jim

~*~

Beth barely suppressed her yawn. The technical gibberish, or as her pa was fond of saying, gobbledygook was boring in the extreme. But she was attending this class so that she could help her dad with the paperwork at the farm. She had just finished high school and her pa wanted her to learn how to maintain the financial records of the farm. He had even bought a used computer from his friend. Beth was no fan of book learning but she loved working on her dad’s farm. If she learned to use the computer, the pressure on her to find a job would ease off. Now all she had to do was to learn how to make excel sheets on the computer so that the farm’s expenses could be recorded properly. It was the time that they too moved into the twenty-first century.

She was happy mucking out the horse stables and keeping the cows fed and clean. Her brother had simply said that he can’t do it. He was interested in frivolous things like cars and movies and liked to spend all his time with his friends. That’s why pa had pinned all his hopes on Beth.

Daily Prompts- Smiles

What is my best treasure, you ask

That clinches at the strings of my soul

And yet lightens my days when I look at

The memories that I have stored away

In that cherished place of my heart

The childhood days, the innocent things were used to do

Rarely they fail to put a smile on my face

Even when it is wet with tears of today’s troubles

Things which have become extinct with time

Still live on in my memories, on and on

Daily Prompts- Can I ?

Vast waters beckon me to try

Pitting my strength against its might

If I strike out by myself in an attempt

To conquer this great expanse

Can I overcome my inhibitions

And the fear that stops me from venturing

Into the unknown territory

Can I?

Or should I give up this false notion

Abandon the idea before I even try

Be the coward I’ve always been

Giving up on adventure because

Of fear of failing and being ridiculed

No ones deserve a hurrah

When they have never tested their strength

Never dreamed of reaching the wonderland

Come on!

It is time to show the world the

The backbone that I possess and the grit

That this hesitant heart hides in its core

JusJoJan # 16- Experience & Daily Prompts.

Linda is the host of JusJoJan .

Today’s prompt:

Experience

was given to is by; Dan

~*~

Do you have enough experience?

No one asks this when we decide to become parents. And being parents is the hardest job imaginable, at least for me. The mistakes we make can affect the lives of our children for a long time. It is sheer luck when they turn out alright. Because we really don’t possess the instincts other animals have when it comes to looking after your child. We learn on the job, so to speak.

There are a lot of crises that teaches us how to not do things during our parenthood. We make mistakes and then learn how to do things right.

Nowadays, new parents have the help of millions of online articles about taking care of babies but they also have to learn many things by doing them wrong first. I think the secret of being a good parent is the willingness to learn from your own experience and also from that of your parents.

Nothing prepares us in advance for parenthood till we finally are there. And all said and done, being a parent is the most awesome job!
