Being Woman

Born to fear for life was she,

Of her  first home, never  sure

If they knew she was a she,

Would she see the world outside…

If she did, indeed, see  the world

Would they drown her in a tub of milk

Or lay her on a bed of silk

Would she be hugged or be lugged …

Hey girl, hey  woman to be, March on, Fearless …

Take your place in the sun, don’t  ever apologise

You’re a giver yet you’re a fighter, let them realise…

 The world is waiting…

 It’s yours for the taking…

Hey girl, hey  mother to be, march on, 

Fearless……

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.

Stumped

What do I Divide ? My smiles, my  simple joys?

Or do I bring to the table, a whole lot of toys?

Eager as I was to write and to my post I jumped…

Alas! The Daily Prompt today has me stumped!  Continue reading

Life Rewinds

Ripples

As I stand before you today ,

I think of what I should say…

The salad days when my life had just begun?

The giggles? The tears? The laughter? The fun?

Cause And Effect “Revisited”

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Cause, Meet Effect.”

You can single handedly create a causal relation between two things that are currently unconnected — a word and an emotion, a song and an extreme weather event, wearing a certain color and winning the lottery. What cause would you link to what effect, and why?

Oh Wow .. what if the Birds chirped and Violins played?

N  every time I saw you, I heard  “our songs” in my head?

What if every time I looked at  a cake slice longingly

My weight would go down  by a 100 grams unfailingly?

—-

What if every time I wore the color lemon yellow

The stocks I bought an upward trend would follow?

What if  every time my left eye twitched,

My purse would get  doubly enriched ?

—–

All these causes are easy to make and do

And all the effects on my long list, “to-do “!

Jingle bells jungle bells jingle all the way

Oh what fun it is to keep all my fears at bay!

———

What bliss, if any of this ever came true

Oh, Word Press Daily Prompt, I love you!

For bestowing on me this world of fantasy

Were life is no-strife and everything so easy!!!

thank you

For our final trio prompt of the year, write about any topic you wish, but make sure your post features a bookcase, something cracked, and a song you love.

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

A list Incomplete

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “The Object of My Dejection.”

Tell us about the object of your dejection — something you made, a masterpiece unfinished, or some sort of project that failed to meet your expectations. What did you learn from the experience? How would you do things differently next time?

This list- where would mine be  beginning ?

That forgotten unfinished oil painting?

The blue cardigan awaiting its collar?

The value of the rupee to the dollar?

The Lil’ pile of books I have yet to read?

The jewellery I never started to bead?

The post PG Study leave that I did not take?

The lovely cakes I wanted to learn to bake?

—–

The holiday abroad Rajiv and I had planned?

The daily walks we had planned hand in hand?

The extra  minutes I wanted to spend with my son?

The movie we were to see together on television?

The music classes I missed with my dear daughter?

That were planned weeks ago, now seem to matter!

————–

This list may never end, But  for every list of dejection,

There is another list,  a longer list of of joy and affection!

                                The love and  tender warmth in my husband’s eye

The happiness in a friends voice, no money can buy.

The twinkle in my darling  daughter’s eye,

The spring in his step as my son does fly!

The blessings of my mother feeling cared n loved

The smile of a patient , the bundle of joy she held !

On that “#100happydays” moment
