I can understand most eating habits but I cannot understand omophagous! Why crunch on something that is raw. It is incomprehensible to me. Yes, I am talking about sushi. The raw fish wrapped in sheets of seaweed. Though the rice inside is cooked, the fish is mostly raw. I turn blue in the face by the mere idea. And I do trust my instincts when I cannot conquer my aversion to this food even when I try. I think it’s not good for me that’s why there is no hope on the horizon that I would succumb to peer pressure and taste it. It would be like flying to the moon or counting the indentations on the north coast. So I disregard the censure slung down on me!

The woeful face woke sympathy in my heart

I lifted and cradled her in my hands to take home

Times were tough with restricted means

Food might be expensive but hugs were always free

She was counting on me now, her voice calling

The distance to my home covered in a few minutes

I unlocked the door and welcomed her inside

The cult of animal lovers would be proud of me

The hypethral style of construction was again coming back into vogue. The last building he had designed like this was way back in 1980. Well, it would be a challenge to make a structure with half of it open to the sunlight but he was on the top of his profession and he would show them how it was done. Squaring his shoulders, he took out his pad to make a rough drawing of it. But he soon realized that to get the angles right, he would have to tap into the resources of his assistant, Jeff. He entered Jeff’s office and with a soft touch on his arm explained to him what was required. Jeff scratched his head in a clueless gesture but was persuaded to give it some thought. The leverage worked as did the smooth-tongued compliments. Soon his intensity of purpose was rewarded with the contract being awarded to his firm.

Once a twenty-something young woman

Found an old ripped map in an even older trunk

Was it a map to a treasure, she wasn’t sure

She counts her blessings, as she lifts it off the floor

She didn’t have enough money to look for the treasure

So with a view to getting some, she signed to sing for a club

At first, a moment of panic overtook her

But her smooth voice soon gave her the confidence

To beat that virus of fear and she soon did

Earn enough money to find the hidden treasure

Flailing in a sea of thersitical language

I try to distance myself from this bad company

It’s not my fantasy, I learn as I turn around to see

The language of the trade I am in is just so

No use crying on the choice I’ve made

Better learn the ropes and get out of here fast

Purchase the ticket for a ship out of the yard

Half a Penny is better than no penny at all

Yesterday heat tendrils savor now chain ask jail sly wee courageous storyteller

Yesterday I was a storyteller

Courageous and adventurous

I tolerated the sly glances, the wee winks

They didn’t believed me, my tales

Today I sit here and savor the feeling of satisfaction

They are roasting , I see the heat escaping in tendrils

The bars of the jail cell hold them now

They still ask me if my stories were true

Or were they just a chain of lies to hide something bigger

The Kite blinked his eyes and his feathers were ruffled by the smelly bag lying near the tree he was perched on. Various possibilities went through his mind. The source of the stench could be a dead animal or some rotting trash not disposed of properly. The phronesis of why it was so, eluded him completely, he was a bird after all. Not one to shrink from the unpleasant, he decided to take a bite and then make his judgment. He hoisted the bag up and tore it to see what it offered. He was baffled by finding a lot of green weeds inside it. Then he thought the weed might have something to do with the parade of young people in the neighborhood after dark.

Slyly she turned to slip through the banister of the stairway. The fall was sudden. She could feel the pain in her left arm and checked for blood. But there was no cut. Though it hurt to move and she found that she had to limit the movement on that side and ease forward slowly. But she wasn’t careful enough, ventured too far, and lost her balance again. The air was blue with her swearing.

She had to give up trying to be a spy. It wasn’t her cup of tea it seemed.

The luminescence from the street light was visible through the drapes. A thousand prayers rose in her throat like a lump. She struggled with herself. The sodden dress with stenciled roses a reminder of the previous evening. She wanted to stay in her comfort zone, but a crack had appeared there, leaving her in intermittent darkness. She had to think deeply on her next move!

Clutching a bunch of snowdrops in his hands he waited. She was a fine lady, and he, an uncouth lad. Her beautiful songs, sung in her dulcet voice had made him surrender his heart with reluctance.

Now he waited for her to approach. His eyes following her upturned face, the silver bracelet in her arm. He hoped she was sagacious enough to recognize true love in his charcoal-gray eyes and would let him lead her to the dance by her elbow. It all depended on her discernment.
