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!

Daily Prompts – Caprice

Standing in front of the mirror she cursed her love of food. How hard she has worked for her weight loss, only to go off at a tangent through her caprice and regain all that weight and then some more. What a daffy I am! She thought berating her yo-yo dieting and inability to stick to healthy eating. Though no fan of complete lifestyle change, she was coming to the conclusion that the answer to her troubles lay there.

~*~

Though this is written on response to multiple prompts, this is very much the story of my weight struggle.

I’ve also come to the conclusion that a complete lifestyle change is the answer to my weight problems.

~*~

Just hot off the press, my book is published recently

I am offering you my latest creation

It’s a fruit of intense labor, my blood and sweat

If you chart the working hours that have gone into it

You will surely realize that I had to move

Many stationary mountains to get this done

It’s a story of an adventure that super heroes had

They saved humanity from mortal danger

And it all ended in a wonderful finale

With happiness and joy reigning supreme

I can assure you, it’s a completely origin tale

Not a single idea has been ever written about

I can also autograph a copy for you

If you just pay the price for the copy

I will even pose for a selfie with you

I do hope you are buying a few copies for your friends too

Daily Prompts & JusJoJan- Subscribe

Linda is the host of JusJoJan;

Today the prompt is Subscribe.

It is provided to us by; Willow.

~*~

The amount of paper we waste every day is mind boggling. Paper bags, newspapers, magazines posters, flyers, etc….

It surely is time to let go of this custom. We can easily subscribe to online news, magazines, bank statements, and other devices that are currently dependent upon paper use. We all know how vital are trees to our survival and we also know that except for a few instances like some toilet paper, paper towels and some paper bags, all the rest is made out of tree pulp. This is such a waste of precious resources that its high time we stopped and rethink our strategy. Time to open our minds and eyes to the horrendous waste and see the daylight.

Think!

JusJoJan # 12- Gravity & Daily Prompts

Linda is the host of JusJoJan.

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 12th, 2020, is “gravity.” Use the word “gravity” any way you’d like. Enjoy!

Your prompt today was selected by Zhenzhen. Thank you so much, Zhenzhen!

~*~

Up from the space, you can see

Our planet, blue and green

The vast expanse of water and south seas

Up there the light from our home is brilliant

And anyone can be forgiven for thinking

That all is as lovely and peaceful down below

As it appears from that gravity-defying point

But at the ground level, the reality is disturbing

When we see the consequences of how

In our lust for money, we have damaged

The beauty and environment of our only home

By felling the forests, polluting the seas and air

Wasting the resources and making it

In the nearby future, for the coming generations

An inhospitable place for both man and beast

Daily Prompts- I hope

I hope

That you will never permit

Despondency to invade your heart

That you would chalk your path in life

Within the brightness of optimism

And not let the hallucinations of defeat color

The beautiful picture that this day has

Brought to you as a special gift

May the schemes of universe be in your favor

Amen!

Daily Prompts-Need for change

The violence on the television touches

A raw nerve whenever I see it

People engaged in senseless killing

Maiming and being physically violent

Why? I ask myself is this need

To show us shows full of hate and discontent

Even when they beat up a rubber dummy

It still evokes feelings of unrest in my mind

I wish they would just shut this stream of savagery

We all should start a campaign to

Persuade these people to stop this brutality

And instead, show us something based on

Human kindness, gentleness, and generosity

Something that restores our trust

In the goodness of mankind
