She stepped in the dark room, keeping her panic at bay. She wanted to be here, to ask the question troubling her mind, yet she dreaded the answer. But might as well do it as she was here now! Taking a deep breath she held out her hand and gave the money to the fortune teller.

This crystal holds all the answers to your future”, said the man in the crazy hat as he took hold of Mandy’s hand.

“I see a cloud on the horizon”, he said in a deep voice. The future is challenging and demands sacrifices from you “

“What sort of sacrifice“, she asked in a low voice.

“You will have to do as I bid you so that I may help you overcome this curse,” the man said as he tried to steal a kiss.

Mandy pushed him back and shouted loudly, you creep! Get away from me. The crystal ball crashed to the floor and broke into many fragments. There was a strange perfume in the air and Mandy fainted as she inhaled it. The fortune-teller quickly moved to bind her hand and feet when a man entered the room.

“This is the last time that you’ve played your game, Marcus! I am arresting you for fraud and kidnapping. This young lady had agreed to expose you and was working for us

So be aware dear readers, most of the fortune-tellers are opportunists trying to hoax us!

This beautiful blue planet of ours shines in the blackness of the universe around it. It’s satellite, the moon is unique by its size and position. This world of ours is alone in known universe to harbor life. So what are we doing to preserve this great home of ours?

Nothing, I tell you. People feel free to go on wild rampage destroying the resources given to us. The soil is regressing and the atmosphere is polluted. Our first and intuitive response is not the preservation but destruction of our home. Why cannot the human society work as a whole to restore our planet and its resources? Let us be more responsible and reverse this curve of destruction and give autonomous authority to non-political agencies to improve the situation.

Soft cotton dress caresses her body shyly

She embraces the tall marble columns softly

The cacophony and noise distracts her

Birds calling to each other over her head

Accidentally she spills the can of coal on the floor

Just then the sun breaks through the clouds

A corona of golden color rays showing their covet glory

She flung aside the curtain which covered the window

There in the street was the fishmonger with his cart

Camp chop smoke trail vapor yearning monarch mountain current twist birdsong chill

~*~

The yearning to feel the mountain air on his face and to hear the birdsong brought him out of his camp early in the morning chill. The fire from yesterday was still going on with thin twists of smoke rising from the semi- burned logs. He would need to chop some more wood he noted. There was fog-like vapor hanging around the mountains. Soon he would be heading up the trail to take photos of the monarch butterflies Clustering in the fir trees. His current contract with Nat Geo was based on him getting pictures and details of this migration of monarchs.

The door of the carriage opened, making a stridulate sound. Josh was rudely shocked out of his daydreams when a wet washcloth struck his head. He looked backwards and saw a girl with a beautiful baby in her arms. The washcloth was dangling from a fat little hand and there was a smell in the air that he couldn’t recognize. He grabbed his bag and got down from the carriage. But his mind was preoccupied and that caused him to misstep and caused his downfall. He got a bruised knee but since he was a resilient guy, he dusted himself up and moved on. The girl was right behind him and their informal introduction through the washcloth gave her an excuse to attach herself to him as she was new and didn’t know her way. Gallantry was a virtue that was drummed into Josh since he was a young man and he gladly showed her the way to the hostel she was headed to.

And thus started a beautiful relationship between the two!

History has shown us that humans have gone to war, jeopardizing peace on trivial issues. So when it comes to a question of my rights, I will not waver at the threat of conflict. I don’t find it dismaying and pray that God gives me the strength to face this bravely. I am sure you don’t envy me at this moment. I know I was meant to be the one making decisions but I hope I don’t make a goofy one.

Thursday Inspiration- 59- Hair, Wordle # 459 and Wordle # 193

Paula is the host of Thursday Inspiration

Welcome to Thursday Inspiration!

This week’s theme is hair and the picture is below. Here is the song snippet from “Hair,” a song written by James Rado and Gerome Ragni for the 1967 musical Hair.

Darlin’, give me a head with hair, long beautiful hair
Shining, gleaming, steaming, flaxen, waxen
Give me down to there hair, shoulder length or longer
Here, baby, there, momma, everywhere, daddy, daddy
Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
Flow it, show it, long as God can grow it, my hair

Mermaid with purple hair

The hair dresser was in a fix. She had tried to pander to the wishes of the blond teenager. But her shock of wild mane when dyed in candy stripes looked hilarious. Now the girl was complaining in a plaintive voice and her mom was glowering at her. Her eyes were drilling holes onto her.

“What else could I do ma’am? It’s no fault of mine. I followed the design your daughter showed me”. She said defensively. “I will try to lighten the dark color, where it shows in a wavy line on the side and fill in with a more neutral shade”

She washed the girl’s hair under running water and recolored them. It wasn’t easy, and she was feeling weak in the knees with thought of these clients costing her her job. Finally, the hair was done. It clinged to the girls head flatteringly and gave her the coveted look she wanted. With hope to pass muster, she turned the client’s chair around and waited for the pierce eyed scrutiny of the girl and her mom.

“Oh, one has to be blind not to notice how you have bungled. But I won’t press the matter. But you’re not getting any tips from me!” Said the mom spitefully.

She wanted to go on a world trip after she graduated. So she concentrated hard on her studies, saying no to partying and delicious sounding plans with friends. True to her promise, she passed with flying colors. But her bubble was burst when she had to cancel her plans because of a family emergency. With tears in her eyes she bid farewell to her nan.

There was a surprise for her when the lawyer called her to tell her that she had inherited her grandmother’s cottage. A small but adorable house that she had always loved. With her heart singing, she opened the door to her new home. It would inflate in value soon, the lawyer had told her.

In the confusion of aeolian moves

The droplets of rain scatter, and dance

The sky breathes as winds seek more power

Let’s harness this energy, to use it for a purpose

Kill the need to break the nature’s planned route

See that the scrupulous are heard

Who know the severity of our situation

That a break should be given to our planet

Make a choice and don’t let the shy flowers die

Go the distance, spend weeks thinking out the strategy

And stop the exploitation of our home by these

“Ignorant meets the looser” type of politicians

The soi-disant expert in skating was having a bad time. First, there was the skid on soapy water and then being chased by the bumblebee! He wanted to participate in the event to win the medal, at the least the silver if not the gold. But things were not looking good. His coach had some reservations about the competition from the start. He wanted to stay in even after the mishap because he loved skating from his cradle. He rubbed his palms against his trousers and tied the laces of his boots. He was ready!
