Daily Prompt : Blink

In response to prompt : Blink

Tim’s silly eyelash

Blink, blink went Tim’s eye without stopping,

Mom laughed and said, ‘What are you doing?’

‘Something’s gone in my left eye, I am trying,

To get rid of this evil thing by blinking.’

‘Oh dear,’ says Mom, ‘let me see if I can help,’

‘But Mom you’re not a doctor, take me  to  Dr. Phelp.’

Away mom drives  car without watching  speed limit,

Cop in the middle says, ‘Wait, my dear  lady a minute.

This is not a highway, I’d like you to know,’

‘I must get to the doctor, please let me go.

My son is in trouble with his left eye,

Only Doc can help she let off a sigh!’

Dr. Phelp was ready  to see his patient,

Tim entered with his mom looking ancient.

‘What is  wrong, tell  me dear little lad?

I’ll make you better, it hurts me to see you sad!’

‘Can  you take this thing out of my eye?’

‘I sure can if you let me see your eye,

There, sitting in your eye is your tiny eyelash.

It is no trouble I will remove it in a dash!

Daily Prompt : Agile

In response to today’s prompt : Agile

My Agility On Ice

When I came to Montreal, my  husband wanted to test my agility on ice, needless to say I was a total failure.

Each time I went to  Mount Royal Park in Montreal, I tried to learn to stand on ice with my skates on,forget how slow or fast I was, I could not stand on ice.

I watched little kids moving freely without a care in the world. One little  girl came to help me, she extended her hand, there I was trying to take the hand but couldn’t, I fell down. I thanked her and told her, ‘I cannot skate.’

I asked her to go on and enjoy herself, I knew I was wasting her precious time.

Knowing I wasn’t agile on ice, I tried to know if I was sharp learning Canada’s second language French. I was glad my brain could cope with the language, even though my feet weren’t agile!

Daily Prompt : Study

In response to prompt : Study

Allama Iqbal , Online Course

A few years ago I developed an interest to study about Allama Iqbal. It began as a curiosity, after I read two lines of his poem in Urdu.

In it Iqbal says: (this is the English translation.) Though the mosque was built overnight by the believers, our heart being old sinners for years, could not be devout.

When I read these lines my curiosity was at its height, I could not wait to find out, why Iqbal wrote this poem.

During my research, I accidentally found out, there is an online course about Iqbal. I registered for the course in 2011.

I’m still studying it. Now I feel it’s worth it, it helps me study about the poet, his beliefs and his role in carving out a country for the Muslim population in the Indian sub-continent.

Daily Prompt : Entertain

In response to prompt : Entertain

Ilahi or Divine

I find it amazing how one word can take me back to a time when I was a little girl. The word is Ilahi, it means, Divine.

My mom employed a helper, to help her in her cooking, her name was Ilahi(Divine), she looked after us as if we were her  children. In return I spent a fair bit of  time interacting with her.

One morning my mom was calling her by her name, then she jokingly said, ‘Isn’t it wonderful to have someone who reminds me of the Divine?’

You might wonder what does this have to do with the prompt, Entertainment?

I’d say a lot. One day Divine asked me if I’d go to her house to have dinner, that she’d cook for me. I saw nothing wrong, I immediately answered yes.

My Mom thought nothing of it and gave me permission to go with her. She had a modest house, but  a big heart, she cooked all kinds of delicious food for me. Which I found tasty, this was her way of  entertaining me.

There is a saying, “food is the best way of entertaining ones near and dear  to them.”

I loved her food, her cooking skill and more than everything her big heart.

This reminds me of a Haitian proverb, which observes that, ‘poor people have a big heart!’

Daily Prompt : Static

In response to prompt :   Static

I like prices of food when it remains static,

I’m weary of those who are overly dramatic.

Some changes are helpful, some are not,

Like when my apple changes from fresh to rot.

Some things in life are better when they’re unchanged,

Like the national Anthem of all the Nations of the World!

My Little Cousin

In her little cradle, lay my pretty cousin,

Unaware of me, watching the toy buzzing.

She was pretty, quiet and a contented baby,

Her behavior was just like a nice lady.

Sadly she was a victim of a vicious fire,

Smell of fire evokes  memory of  my cousin Farah!

Daily Prompt : Carve

In response to prompt : Carve

Lot of invaders came to India to settle, and carve out an empire for themselves. The one Empire that lasted for more than three hundred years, was the Mughal Empire founded by Babur.

After the last Mughal emperor, Bahadur Shah Zafar, came the British, who had a similar plan, but they started by convincing the local citizens, they were there only  for trade.

It wasn’t long when they showed their real color and shaped a new empire which they called the, “British Empire.”

The British rule in India lasted for one hundred ninety years!
