Holiday time

It’s time to pack those bags, get the bookings

I want to have a glamorous holiday, getting

A ritzy hotel booking and traveling first class

Packing my baggage and bundle up the essentials

I have plans, I do but there is only one catch that

Is getting in the way of my super luxurious holiday

A little thing is hindering the whole project and

I have to find a way around it or all the plans

Will end up in the rubbish bin unless I come up

With enough cash to fund my dream holiday plans

And enough strength of mind to pursue my dreams

I am writing!

Manufacture a line, or construct a stanza

Write a short poem or a long verse dialogue

Something straightforward or with a hidden meaning

An equivoque, filled with puns, and double entendres

How to write to grab your attention, rivet your interest

I am a writer, I want you capture your focus towards

This masterpiece I am writing, and hoping that it will

Amuse you, entertain you with all the revelations

That are coming your way, if you keep on reading

Whitewashing the crime

Crying in the dark, staring at the walls

That have held the spirit confined

In puzzlement and anger the mind

Fights the chains of captivity and restrain

It’s will is mettlesome and full of vigor

But the bonds are made of a tensile strength

That no measure of force seems to weaken

The toxic air is difficult to inhale, burning

The lungs, hurting the very existence that

Begs to be free, that longs to breathe

How will they whitewash all this cruelty

How is it ever going to be justified by them

Or will they bury the body, killing it by

The silver bullet, hiding the evidence

Under the layers of deceit and the cunning

Which is the hallmark of the oppressors

All through the history, all through the time!

How we stand!

History is not good at remembering people. Many names have been overwritten as one generation has moved on and another takes its place. We are so sure of our own importance that we are sure that our presence is necessary to make things run smoothly. But unfortunately for us, this machine hums along, the cogwheels turning, irrespective of who is here and who has departed this world. But do we think, do we realize that we are insignificant in the larger scheme of things. Our ego is too big to take a hint. Even if universe shouted at the top of its voice, or even in a megaphone, and we will still ignore it! So what should we do to be remembered? There are so many options. See the endless possibilities and select the path which leads to the zenith and walk on it. History may not remember us, but we will leave a kind impression in someone’s heart.

Clandestine rendezvous

It’s apparent that you admire her a lot

Hope she feels the same for you as it is known

That her tastes are eclectic and not everyone

Can win her approval or please her enough

A quick skedaddle to the tryst is required

If you want to meet her in the clandestine way

Go in a sneaky way, so that no one can see

And carry a posy of fresh flowers to woo her with.

Afternoon Barbecue

Summer had finally arrived, a time for picnics and open air barbecues with friends and family. Andy and Jenny decided to have a party on the coming weekend. Jenny took care of the invites and Andy arranged for all the supplies they would need. He was keen to test his new grill, and this was the perfect opportunity to do so.

On the day of the party, he fired up the grill and got all the meats ready. Their guests started arriving around six in the evening and he was keen to start grilling the steaks and patties. His wife came over where he was busy and told him to be careful and not to overcook the meat, as no one liked dried out steaks. Andy assured her that he knew what he was doing and proceeded with his first batch of burger patties. Everything was going as planned, but when he tried to flip the patties over they had stuck to the gridiron of the grill. Apparently you were supposed to spray it with the high heat cooking oil , and he had forgotten all about it in his excitement. Jenny, seeing the smoke from the burning patties, came over to help him. “I told you to be careful”she told him, scrapping off the charred meat from the grill.You see this is the tricky part, where you need to pay attention to details”, she told a abashed Andy. After the guests had left, they were cleaning up the grill and Andy agreed that in hindsight, he had been too sure of himself. He should have listened to his wife and not fallen for the marketing gimmicks, when they tell you that the grill was non-stick!

Anything out of something

To make anything out of something

All you have to do is put in everything

All your best efforts all that you think

Can make it work and the outcome is

What will make them sit up and think.

Honesty is integral to make it float

Otherwise all is doomed to fail and sink

An Admirable Notion

 

An admirable notion,

To save all the ocean

From the garbage and

Oil spills and plastic

That are spoiling its beauty

The fish are dying and

Losing their beautiful habitat

To the greed of the human race

Who are exploiting the treasure of the seas

Let’s be concise and direct to explain

That we have been busy polluting

The vast oceans that are life-giver

To the marine life and plankton

It is now the time to learn this fact

We have to get smarter and give back

I am so Glamorous!

I am at the zenith of my life right now

It is full of beauty and glamour and show

I am toeing the line, I am no heretic I can say

I am trying to fit in the mold made for me by you

Not a deviant, nor a rebel, a conformist, that’s me

The personality that I had has been long buried alive

Underneath this camouflage that you have heaped

On my soul, suffocating my life and all my dreams.

Dainty

“Let me introduce you to the love of my life. Her name is Dainty“Mark was showing off his new sailboat to his friend, Peter. “Wow, this is a beauty” Peter was thoroughly impressed. ” And when are you going on your maiden voyage?” Mark smiled joyfully and told him that he is going on coming Sunday. “I want to satisfy my wanderlust, go and sail across the ocean and visit the places I always wanted to” . Peter wanted to know all the details of Mark’s up coming adventure. ” Hey buddy, please stop this barrage of questions. I will give you an itinerary of my trip. In case there is no news of me for next month, you can report my disappearance to the authorities” Mark said jokingly.

It was exactly a month later that Peter got in touch with the maritime authorities reporting a missing man and boat while sailing the Pacific Ocean.
