Daily Prompts – The biggest treasure

My fortune is the sense of humor that I have

And the optimism which I have loads of

It’s a treasure which is priceless

No one can steal it from me

Neither can I gamble it away

In today’s wild environment it’s vital

To be positive in the zoo of negativity

Not to succumb to the pedestrian way of thought

Keep your smiles on and draw on your source of

Positive thoughts, to steer us all out of

The turbulent sea of troubles we find ourselves in

Daily Prompts- Exploring

Let us explore the path that leads

Into that closely guarded domain, always kept hidden

It is in all honesty, the best we have to offer

But we keep it hidden, pitting it in undeserved captivity

Does it tickles your curiosity to know what I am referring to

I am talking about the inner sanctum of course

That we hide because we don’t want to expose

Our tender feelings to the outside world

We develop an outward slick exterior

To hide our soft emotions in plain sight

But now is the time to show our love and tenderness

To those we love

For love makes us all stronger and better able

To face uncertainty and adversities, together

Daily Prompts- A fantasy

This would be my best fantasy fulfilled

Cakes, rock buns, sandwiches, and tea

Some might say that I aim low

That food shouldn’t be something to dream about

But for someone who has been at war

All their adult life, trying to vanquish

The enemy that is obesity and overweight

It is one thought foremost in my mind

If someone invented calorie-free goodies

How wonderful it would be for people like me

To eat till we couldn’t eat anymore

But to still weight the same as before

But…….

I should stop being a ninnyhammer

As this dream is not going to come true

Let’s go out for a walk and try to shed

These unwanted pounds and get healthy

From my evening walk, yesterday! There was a light drizzle and there looked magnificent in the fading sunlight.

Daily Prompts- Sabotaged!

I did it myself

Nobody else was to blame

I sabotaged my diet with binging

It’s not that I don’t care

It’s only that the stress always

Makes me hungry, craving for goodies

Yummy sweets and chewy carbs

If I could handle tension well

I would not be staring belligerently at the scale now

Well what is done cannot be undone

I need to go out and walk again

See how the animals and birds are coping

Their habitat restored once again

No fumes, no noise and humans far and few

Stay away from crowds but do go out to enjoy nature.

Wishing you all health and safety from all ills.

Daily Prompts- Confessions

I need to confess something here

I tried to buy all the toilet paper in the store

I was grabbing a cartload when I was told to stop

I tried to parlay with the store clerk

But he told me I am allowed just one pack

The rest should be left for others in need

I raised my fist in anger, What do I care

If others don’t have any, they can then

Come to the store and hunt for them

The fellow gave me a quizzical look

He was sure I had lost my sanity

He showed me a copy of the notice on all aisles

Telling shoppers to be mindful of others while shopping

Shamefaced I walked out of the store empty handed

And went into another to buy some more

( I fail to understand why people are hoarding TP. There was always enough for everyone before this crisis )

Daily Prompts- One day, soon.

I see countless branches, bare

Waiting for spring to put some buds

And leaves to cover their nakedness

It will happen when the time is right

Patience is an art we learn when we wait

For nature to act, changing winter into spring

The amount of time may vary every year

This year things may be difficult

Eerie and frightening, but spring will arrive

And flowers will bloom like always

Break out of the fearful and somber mood

Put a smile on your face while you wait

For the crisis to be over, for the world to right itself

Daily Prompts- Snuffed Candle

Today is the anniversary

Of the day you left me on my own

The gypsy scried that it would be so

But I still believed that you would make it

We were together for just a few years

When life was confiscated abruptly from you

I have meticulously preserved your things

Not because I am bitter at the fate

But because it reminds me of what we had together

Daily Prompts- To be or not to be….

Swamped by work

Need entertainment

A break from routine

Floundering in uncertainty

Don’t want to go round the bend

The pay may be great but is it worth it

If the work doesn’t deliver satisfaction

What is the use of the daily toil

If nothing worthwhile is being achieved

I am in suspense, what should I decide?

Daily Prompts- Dream of love

They say hang on to life

Daydreams are just that, dreams

Do something practical, be useful

I do admit this advice has a lot of bearing

On how the practical side of our life-plan should be

But what about the spirit and our soul?

That also needs a bit of freedom to prosper

Some contemplation can be in order, indeed

While caring that our head isn’t t always lost in the clouds

We can explore our imagination and vision

We can nurture both the practical and the romantic

And achieve a balance which will benefit

Us in our journey immensely

Daily Prompts- Looking Within

Look within, change the palette

Try new colors and moods

You are not bound to be you

You can change and so can those around you

Overhaul your way of thinking

Get out of that corner you’ve pushed yourself into

This isolation has given you a free pass

It’s time to re-evaluate and recreate

Be a brand new version of yourself

A better and improved you!
