We could only wonder at the transmogrification….. Of an era gone by….the roots told a thousand stories they had been witness to.

Sunshine to Stardust

Sacrifice

was when…..

she forgot her kith and  kin

she forgot all she believed in

all she remembered was impossible love

her need to make him see the heavens above. 

****

her time , her life, her duties, her promises

her responsibilities all could burn to ashes 

all she cared was for the deep happy voice

the chuckle in his throat was now her choice

North meets South

Todays Prompt :  Object

Lamps are  objects that have always fascinated me… This picture is of an arrangement of my favourite lamps  that I lit  on Diwali, the Indian festival of lights,  this year. The taller lamps are typically South Indian brass lamps called Nilavillakku…the smaller ones are the traditional earthen ones.

It was a stormy night and so I could not light them outside the house..

Destiny

Today’s Daily Prompt:  Inevitable

 

Ah,

Inevitable it was

 …. that they had but just met

…. to let their hearts connect!

Yet

Inevitable it was

…..that they never knew

….. a gift given to very few!

So

Inevitable it was 

….. that they, as best friends, did part

…..  living n loving, they stayed apart!

Then

Inevitable it was

…… that their paths did cross

…… over the seas, miles across!

But

Inevitable it was 

….. that at last their souls did bond

….. within their hearts love they found!

Alas!

Inevitable it was

……. that they had found it too late,

…….  to love again was not their fate

Thus

Inevitable it was

……. that fate n destiny did ordain

…….  to live in pain and love in vain.

Playing Santa

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Secret Santa.”

You get to choose one gift — no price restrictions — for any person you want. The caveat? You have to give it anonymously. What gift would you give, and to whom?

santa

I love giving gifts and so being a Secret  Santa is something I would really enjoy… In fact one of my friends once said he had never known someone who loved giving gifts, as much as,  if not more,  than receiving gifts! Giving it anonymously spoils the fun in a way, because the joy of gifting is best rewarded by the smile of delight on the receivers face or at least in knowing that you made him /her /them happy.

Reflections On Resolutions

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “To Be Resolved.”

We’re entering the final days of 2014 — how did you do on your New Year’s resolutions these past 11.75 months? Is there any leftover item to be carried over to 2015?

res 2015

Let me at the outset confess I don’t really make New Year resolutions that resolutely.  So there wasn’t much “stocktaking” to be done right now.  Oh I do make a few resolutions all through the year with deadlines of the following week , month and so on.  But I have forgotten the time I last made a New Year resolution in all earnestness for the  New Year per se.

Sunday morning, I am up with the bell

A bright sunny day with a story to tell!

A brand  New Year being  around the corner

I wanted a brand new look in my own roomer

I pushed my bedside  bookcase away ….

And Oops! something cracked right away

Went to check and what do you think I see

My favorite DVD cracked to bits as can be!

Irretrievably broken now, I had to  let it be 

Off to the mall I go to get a Xmas gift for me !

Found my lost lil one and then got some more

Something to Soothe? Retail therapy to the fore !

And here it is – one of the songs I love

Music is, indeed, manna from above

A Song I Love – Words
