Writing Prompt: Wall to Wall

What do you display on the walls of your home—- photos,posters,artwork, nothing? How do you choose what to display? What mood are you trying to create?

My walls at the moment are showing off the painter’s craft. I am busy wondering, do I want to cover his artistic work by hanging artwork or pictures or posters or photographs? It will hide the beautiful painting, on second thoughts I am not sure I should leave the walls as is. It will quickly lose its lustre and my friends and all those big mouths will have a field day discussing how awful my walls look.

I am thinking of celebrating nature, the paintings and other work of art are screaming to adorn the empty spaces on my wall.

The colorful feather of the peacock,the ducks wading on the lake, the beautiful garden and the flowers will depict nature’s beauty. 

The painting of the geese with their outstretched wings, ready to take off any moment will be wonderful to watch.

There are two different painters I am thinking about, one took a bucket of paint and used his brushes and rollers to paint the walls with my choice of colors.

The other has an easel where he also paints but his tools are different, his paint comes in small sizes,his work if he happens to be famous sells for a lot of money.

I’d stop right now and pick the paintings to cover  my walls  with paintings of birds,I’ll put up the paintings of birds,flowers, lakes.

They will I hope look beautiful in my living room.

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

What was it that drew you to your significant other? Their blue eyes? Their ginger countenance? Their smile?Their voice?

 

My significant other is someone whom I haven’t thought of taking apart bit by bit ,but the person as whole, for me he is one of those people who cares about me and thinks of my welfare.

He is charming well educated and handsome, he is a devoted husband and a caring father. I cannot expect anything more. In my language they say, ” you cannot find such a person even if you look all over with a bright lamp.”

Writing Prompt: Second time around

Tell us about a book you can read again and again without getting bored —- what is it that speaks to you?

 

I recently finished a book, the title is ,” The Art of Hearing Heartbeats”, it’s a novel written by Jan–Philipp Sendker. He was born in Hamburg in 1960,was the American correspondent from 1990 to 1995,and its Asian correspondent from 1995 to 1999. The Art of Hearing Heartbeats is his first English novel.

The novel is set in former Burma now Myanmar. It is a rare novel which tells the story of a blind young man’s journey through a world  where he used his auditory sense to replace his blindness. It is a magical tale of hardship and resilience.

Usually I pick a book by its title and if it appeals to me I buy it. I did the same with this one and I can read this book again and again and would still feel,I haven’t had enough of it. The author’s description of Tin Win the male character and Mi Mi the female character is remarkable.

When I was reading the book I felt as if I was a part of the story, their conversation , their affection for each other was simply magical. They went through difficult times but remained loyal to each other.

DP Daily Prompt: If I Had a Hammer

If you could learn a trade — say carpentry,electrical work,roofing, landscaping,plumbing,flooring drywall — you name it what skill(s) would you love to have in your back pocket?

 

I would love to be a photographer, this skill would give me all kinds of opportunities . I’d photograph every interesting thing I meet on my walks. At the end of the day I will feel proud that it’s my work and no one else’s.

My aim is not to be famous but enjoy doing something I always wanted to do. 

In this universe of ours we have so many varieties of people places, and things , if the interest is there one could spend a lifetime photographing God’s creation and not worry about fame or fortune.

This is something I’d love to have in my pocket!

Blogging Challenge: Letter W

Warehouses are filled with assorted stuff

Men and women cannot decide what they want

Wife says to husband picking anything is tough

They watch and they wonder what do they want!

 

Along came  kids dancing and prancing

We know how to tell you without thinking

Wow says the mom and the dad

We wish we could have more kids like that!

 

Upon arriving at the cash register

Out he took out his wallet to pay

Woe to me my bills  are stuck together

I wasn’t expecting this today!

 

Why is this happening he queried

Wife said honey, “I’m worried”

Who’d lend us some moolah

I’d lend you I’m Beulah!

This meant sleeping in, watching TV ,going for walks and hanging out with neighbors,delightful she told herself.

In the afternoon her husband came home, he told her, “We are going to Montreal to spend the holidays”Nadia was exceptionally happy, she sat and quickly wrote all the places she’d visit this time, which she was not able to on their last visit.

Montreal she thought,’La belle de la province’ she started dreaming of going to the “Farmer’s Market”, she’d buy the delicious cheese bread, eat at the cool restaurant there, this time she made up her mind to eat poutine.

She fell asleep thinking about her trip, she dreamed her luggage was lost and she was frantic, she started yelling what am I going to do without my clothes, her husband shook her, when she awoke, her husband said,”you were dreaming honey, we will go on our vacation next week.”

DP Daily Prompt: Teen Age Idol

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

Who did you idolize as a teenager?Did you go crazy for the Beatles? Ga-ga over Duran Duran. In love with Justin Bieber? Did you think Elvis was the livin end?

 

My answer to the question is,”None of the above”.  I did not know any of them, maybe they are or were super talented people,but their voices did not reach me where I lived as a teenager.

Since this is a prompt about teen age idol, my answer is I was exposed to Tagore, Rafi, Talat, And Lata to name a few. 

My idol was and still is Rabindranath Tagore. His song lyrics are clearly awesome, he loved nature and wrote quite a few songs on nature and was very popular where I lived. 

His songs had a calming effect on people including me, we understood them and learned to appreciate them.

Ato Z challenge: Letter V

My little pupil Ben 

Had a Voracious appetite

You can easily tell when

He’d eat two Papa burgers

At a tender age of ten!

 

His round visage

And lovely blue eyes

Sliding about beneath 

their brows

Was a picture of health!

 

Verses he could not memorise

Yet he would Vow day after day

“I would succeed he would say”

He tried in Vain to be Victorious

But his brain refused to co-operate!

Writing Prompt: Stranger

Have you ever had a random encounter or fleeting moment with a stranger that stuck with you?

 

One year I had to go to Chicago to see my brother-in-law and his wife. They had a baby, my husband couldn’t go due to his back. He was in pain 24/7, so he thought we were obligated to see the little infant, since he was unable to go, I’d have to go. I won’t mention about the reception I got this is irrelevant here.

I boarded the plane with my two little ones in the wee hours of the morning. I had to carry their paraphernalia with me, to keep them under control. I reached Montreal safe and sound with my young family. At the airport runway for some reason we had to take a shuttle to go to the airport lounge. We were waiting to get the shuttle, in my mind I was thinking how was I going to carry the bags and hold on to my kids at the same time.

A lady behind called out and said, “I see you need help , let me take one of your kids to help you go on board.”

I was sure I was getting Divine help, I was so thankful to the lady, I couldn’t think of enough words to express how grateful I was.

We reached Chicago at 10 pm. my kids were fast asleep on the plane. When the plane landed and we were ready to get off, I heard another voice behind me, this time it was a gentleman, “Excuse me ma’am, your kids are sleeping, how will you carry them out,let me help you?”

Was this another voice from up above, I thought? I was delighted to take his offer of help, he carried my younger one and my older one woke up, I held her hand and carried the bags with me.

I thanked the gentleman and walked over to see my brother-in-law who came to pick me up. He had a very stupid question which I can’t help but write, “Who was this man?”

“A nice gentleman I said who offered to help me.”
