Enjoy The Sunshine

 

 

 

Keep on making compromise

Avoid the sunshine and stay indoor

A habit which make you prone to disease

Or pick yourself up from that couch

Tighten the belt and square those shoulders

Make a dash or a run, reminiscent of school days

You have a choice: healthy or lazy

As both cannot go together try you may

Either be active and robust or be lazy, lethargic and in ill-health

Did you notice my new car?

My parents gave it to me as my graduation present.

I want to be more than what they expect of me, to make them proud of me, as I realize how much they have done for me.

Thursday Photo Prompt— Beyond #Writephoto

Sue Vincent has given us this prompt to write;

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a rainbow-rayed sun shinging through the apex of a triangle created by two trees leaning together. The viewer stands on dark, shadowed ground,while the gap through the trees leads to a brilliant green lawn.

All posts will be featured in the round-up on Thursday April 25th at 10am GMT, linking back to the original posts of contributors. Throughout the week I will feature as many of the responses here on the Daily Echo as space allows and (more or less) in the order in which they come in.

I wonder

What lies beyond

This landscape green

These trees thriving

These brilliant sun rays

What lies beyond I often wonder

Can I comprehend tomorrow

Can I see the future yet undecided

Do I want to know really

What lies beyond

Class assignment

Today was the day we got to examine a picture

And tell an anecdote about it on paper

Our teacher showed it to encourage our creativity

Or maybe she wanted to keep us busy and thinking

Today lingering in work is allowed as well

And we can take as much time as we like

So that she could tackle the workload pilling up

She has a lot of work to do but we cannot help her

But we can keep doing our work so she can do hers

Wordle #129

1. Boy

2. Brood

3. Localize

4. Coil

5. Dark

6. Tremble

7. Sphere

8. Unmistakable

9. Ruthless

10. Stomach

11. Contour

12. Coastline

The coastline was dotted by little towns where life was simple. The town where this localized view was taken, lay in a sphere around which the area was naturally dark. The unmistakable contour of the boats anchored along the harbor proclaimed its fishing origin. But when the tides were not cooperating, the life had to be sustained by using the poultry raised for this purpose by the people. It needed a ruthlessness to catch the chicken and separate it from the brood. Most people would not have the stomach to slaughter the chicken to put food on the table. But one may recoil and tremble but needs must be met. A boy was considered to become a man if he could perform this task.

What’s My Story then #2

What’s My Story Then?

“The Unfavourable Consequences of Pan”

Using the image above and the title below it “The Unfavourable Consequences of Pan” can you create a 100 –  300 words story or poem

No matter how many pipes I collect

The one I am seeking, I cannot find

In reeds and in winds I search for her

But not a single clue can I find of her

My beloved where have you gone

That all my tunes and songs have fallen silent

There are murmurs on the winds

Lost songs that I seek high and low

I cannot find her, no matter how many

Pipes I collect of clay, of wood ,of reeds

A cottage near the lake

It is standing all by itself

A cottage near the lake

The fields lush green spotted with dandelions

The water blue, as blue as it gets

The heart content and at peace

How I wish to occupy this cottage

And spend my days in tranquility

Only one thing causes concern

That too much quiet can cause boredom

Word of the week –

whistle (noun) –
A clear, high-pitched sound made by forcing breath through a small hole between partly closed lips, or between one’s teeth. A shrill, high-pitched sound.

synonyms – trilling, birdsong, cry, song, cheeping, tweeting, chatter, chirping, peeping, calling.

whistle (noun) –

An instrument used to produce a shrill, high-pitched sound, especially for giving a signal.

synonyms – siren, alarm signal, distress signal, alert.

I grew up with three brothers. I always emulated my elder brother who was a couple of years older to me and a ruffian to boot. He was the example I wanted to follow as I was more or less a Tom boy! But one thing that desperately wanted to learn was wolf whistling. It appeared easy enough but try as much as I could, I couldn’t produce the sharp, shrill sound which would mean the ; hey! Look here I am a bad guy! ( Remember that I was around ten at the time!) Well seeing that I was so desperate to learn this “art”, my father gave me a few lessons and voila! I could whistle like a pro. I impressed my friends for quite a long time by this talent of mine!

One Liner Wednesday April 17/19

“The rain is famous for falling on the just and unjust alike, but if I had the management of such affairs I would rain softly and sweetly on the just, but if I caught a sample of the unjust out doors I would drown him”      

Mark Twain

It’s April and the April showers are showing their face in many a place. Rain is inconvenience to some and life giver to others. Some people enjoy rain and some get sick of it. Mark Twain had his own way of looking at rain!

Let it rain

Let it rain…….

A new project

The time was so right to get a subsidiary company started, Jason thought to himself. He was working as a consultant in a major car manufacturing company and the research for electric powered vehicle was going so well that he thought they should open a branch of the main company to manufacture electric cars. It was the prime time for such a move. The market was ready and so were the people. He himself took ferry from his home to reach the office on the island but he knew what the pollution from the gasoline powered cars was doing to the environment. In his mind it was so important to put a car on the market which could use renewable energy that even if the company had to drop their less important but more lucrative projects, it was worth every effort to save the environment and the planet.
