JusJoJan January 21 2021 – Spell

Linda is the host of JusJoJan

Please stay for a spell

Be spellbound by my charm

I think we are in for a spell of rain

The long shadows of trees fading as clouds roll in

Let’s sit under the canopy and enjoy the drizzle

A brief interlude before we are swallowed by

The busyness of humdrum daily life

Just for a spell

WritePhoto- Wonder

Sue Vincent has suggested that we can use her images to write a post. I am using this image from her Midnight Haiku- 15 December 2020

A winter landscape

So serene and quiet

Fills me with wonder and awe

The nature has so many faces and so many guises

It enthralls us with it colorful finery in spring

It glowing verdant greens in summer, refreshing

The flaming colors of autumn, unparalleled, in rustic simplicity

And in the dignified whites of winter, just majestic

In all its phases it never stops to amaze us

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

In response to the following prompts;

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

Redolence

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

3TC;

Blessing, Household, Penalty

FOWC;

Epic

RDP;

Stout

Word of the day challenge;

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

Magical

Daily Prompts- Facelift

She averts her face coyly

I am too old for you to smicker at

It’s just this recent project of mine

That has led you to a false notion

This facelift makes me look far younger

Than my years and so you think, I am

Do reserve your passion and ardor

For someone your own age young man

This arbitrary and sudden passion is quite misplaced

I am old enough to be your grandmother

In response to the following prompts;

YDWP;

Reserve

3TC;

Busier, Space, Facelift

FOWC;

Arbitrary
