Daily Prompts- Just as I suspected

It is just as I suspected

Heaps of plastic floating in oceans

Pollution abounds and resources misused

No thoughts of consequences, reckless deeds

Impetuous actions of humans leading to trouble

If all this trash was indoors, in your own homes

You would think twice about creating such a mess

Can you catch a glimpse of the future we are ushering in?

It would be unlike anything you have seen yet

Unless we change our habits of usage,

This is a disaster just waiting to happen

Are you worried yet?

If not you should be!

Daily Prompts- Explore the past

Explore the past

Plan an excursion

Glide through the memories

Reject the trivia, immerse in real

The best that you have stored in there

Enjoy the idyllic scenes of the past once again

Discard the unpleasant that happened last week

Revisiting is a process best enjoyed when you

Put on rose-colored glasses and have selective memory

Daily Prompts- Eyes wide open

Today is the day

To ascend in hope

Not to fall in despair

Some have a penchant for gloom

But today is not the day for misery

Throw the cares over your shoulder

And greet the day with a smiling face

Let the childlike excitement take over

Count all the positives and ignore the negatives today

Open your eyes wide with wonder and amazement

You do have the discretion to decide

What you’ll carry forward and what you’ll discard

Happy Independence Day!

Daily Prompts- Layoff

I have collected so much junk over the years

If I auctioned it all off I would be a millionaire

I think I’d put all my gadgets on eBay for sale

I need the money since I was layoff this year

Or maybe I will go out and buy a lottery ticket

If I won the grand prize my problems would end

Daily Prompts- Are you listening?

Do grant me some respite

From the gelid stares, icy rebuttals

Is it printed on my forehead?

Is this my lot in life, I ask them

There is no excuse for this behavior

Yet I am always put in that zone

Where I stand alone and despised

Am I not a part of you?

Am I not a person like you?

Am I finally getting through to you?

Want to see the diversity of life, visit the zoo

There are so many animals in all shapes, sizes, and colors

Empirical evidence that coexistence is possible

No one needs to feel more powerful or privileged than others

When you look around your garden you’ll see again

All plant life in perfect harmony with each other

Then what explains the urge of humans to feel superior

To people who are different in looks and background

How could the color of skin or race determine

What lies beneath is what is of paramount importance

A conversation in earnest needs to start among us all

Caution is required when addressing issues of sensitivity

Do speak up and share your views and concerns

Come together as one whole not pieces divided

In response to the following prompts;

YDWP;

Caution

Daily Prompts- I search

I look to unravel the arcane

In the plethora of fact lies the undiscovered

Deep inside the known lies a wealth of unknown

The perfection is concealed in the shell of imperfect

In the vista of the salty sea are hidden pearls

Name the names and label the facts

It is still not enough to satisfy

The desire to explore the hidden

Daily Prompts- Oops

There are orators that inspire us to great deeds

And then there are the windbags that just put us to sleep

I don’t begrudge you this seat in the auditorium

When sitting in the front row you futilely resist the urge

To close your eyes just for a minute and then

Suddenly realize you had drifted away to the land of nod

Without permission from your mind, you dozed

And now noticed you turn the color of beetroot

Just pretend to be in deep thought and ignore all those

Who were disturbed by the occasional snores

Daily Prompts- Poetry

Thousands of thoughts swirl in my brain

Disturbing the restful frame of my mind

They demand that I put them on paper succinctly

Rhyming and rhythmic like a river‘s flow

Well-loved words creating verses unusual and enticing

As I gaze to the horizon, I dream of verdant greens and cerulean bays

And start to craft lines that portray the beauty

That my thoughts evoke in my mind and want me to convey

Once my imagination is clad in the garb of words

No one will be able to abolish it without glancing over

Daily Prompts- My baby

The day you were born I wrapped you in soft cotton sheets

I still remember the smell of that bar of baby soap

Listening to the rhythm of your calm breathing

Was enough to put a mother’s mind at ease

But, as usual, the time slips away from us unnoticed and quickly

Now you are matriculated in a collage, but you were

A baby a little while ago and I remember it clearly
