Discover Prompts, Day 3 : Song, posted translated by ranu

When I hear the word song , it brings back memories of all the songs I heard, the singers who spent their life entertaining us. The music, the language, the rhythm, tune and so many other things.

Let me translate my favourite Hindi song: the title is ,Life

Life is a Mystery
What kind of mystery is this life?
sometimes it makes us laugh, sometimes it makes us cry,
Sometimes our mind follows the dreams without waking up
One day the traveller will go ahead of these dreams
The people who arranged this gathering,
were happy and sad
will quietly leave this world alone but where?

Discover Prompts: Day 1:Joke

The leaders worldwide have no consolation.

Their people know not what’s isolation

Some think it’s okay to go out with a friend

Surely QOVID-19 will understand.

Who will tell these naïve humans

This thought of yours is sheer nonsense.

Coronavirus is not a Joke

Calm down and enjoy your coke.

Our Creator by Ranu( A story)

Long, long time ago the creator of our planet wanted to experiment something new.

He gathered His Angels and expressed His wish. The Angels from A to Z protested vehemently.

The littlest Angel with its sweet voice said: It is not a good thing to create humans, they will fight and cause bloodshed, please God give up this idea.

He told His Angels, you do not know what I know.

Ignoring the plea of the Angel, God continued to elaborate His plan. I will use clay to create the form with care, then I will breathe into its shape and it will come alive.

The human was created.Not wasting any second He ordered the Angels to bow to the human. All the angels did as told but one of them refused.

God was angry and threw him out of heaven. While leaving, the rebel angel said, ‘alright then I will cause chaos, give wrong advice to the humans, your world would be a very difficult place to live, until the day of judgement.

History Repeats Itself, posted by Ranu

Nations come and nations go

My books of history told me so.

Roman Empire came and left,

The stories tell us it was deprived

Of all the power it thought would last.

Sad to see it disappeared so fast.

More nations are aiming to do the same,

This time mankind will destroy all

There’ll be no history to write wouldn’t it be a shame? 😦

Nature’s Fury,posted by ranu

Hurricane winds and snowstorm got together,

To teach us humans a thing or two about weather,

The skies in St. John’s turned amazingly white,

On a Friday when folks are not in a mood to fight

The snow came down fast recording 4cm an hour

The mighty hurricane exhibited its power

It blew away anything that came its way

It humbled the locals so much that day

They agreed to stay home and pray.

A state of emergency was declared

Some got their cameras to catch the horror

Houses broken to pieces, wind spreading terror

All I could do was repeat ninety-nine names of God,

Hoping we’d be forgiven and live to see,

Another fine day, the sun shining in glee.

Tagore Song, posted and translated by Ranu

O The Good Old Days
Alas how can one forget the
good old days of yester year
It’s all about seeing each other
Recalling the things that made us happy
we picked flowers early morning
How can we forget the
Sitting on the swing,
swaying under the flowery tree
There came a time when we were separated
We had no idea where we were
One more time dear friend
Come again
we’ll talk about sad and happy days
It will give us happiness all over again
Let us recall the memories of the good old days
to soothe our hearts!

A Poem by ranu

William Wordsworth wrote poems of Nature,

I decided to express about my stature.

In height and weight I carry no distinction,

But when I fell I was close to extinction.

As I was falling down the stairs ,

I made my plea to God Upstairs,

Please do not make me an invalid,

I promise to say my prayers

To increase my good deed.

Perhaps He heard me, perhaps not,

For I only fractured a rib and bruised my body

It could have been worse my daughter declared,

you did not break your leg nor an arm.

Now I’m swallowing pain killers galore,

And wonder when will I be able enough,

Because lying flat on a bed long hours is tough is tough!
