DP Daily Prompt: Dust In The Wind

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

Have you made a bucket list?Now’s the time—Write about the things you want to do and see before you become dust in the wind.

Bucket list I’ve never made any

But if you want

I can make it quite zany!


I’d like to go to Timbucto 

Be back from there

In a day or two!


On my bucket list 

I won’t  forget to write

All the friends I’d invite!


My thoughts and actions 

Are not the same

To tame a tiger is my aim!


If my list befuddles you 

It does me too 

There is very little I can do!


I can do much better

You may think

Honestly I ran out of ink!


I had to hurry

And to scurry

Before I became 

A mere dust in the wind!

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for sharing this bucket list. I too would like to be able to tame a tiger.

    All good wishes,


  2. I like the poetic take on a bucket list, with the rhyme and varied color. And the entries are interesting–hurrying and scurrying–as if the spontaneous things are the most important unlisted bucket list items!
