Daily Prompt: Neophyte

In response to one word prompt : Neophyte

As a Neophyte the infant’s world is rather small,

His mother, his nurse, his busy father that’s all.

In his early days he embraces   his precious Mom,

She feeds him, changes him and keeps him calm.

The days turn to months and then to years,

His world gets larger and with it the fears.

Who are these people he wonders out loud,

Why  is there such a strange crowd.

‘It’s your birthday,’ someone shouts,

‘I know mom and dad, what’s birthday,’ he pouts.

The crowd brings him presents and sings,

‘Happy birthday to our king of kings.’

‘I want to sleep, he tells his mother,

Tell them to go away, he yells, father !’

Daily Prompt : Strut

In response to daily prompt :  Strut

The  peacock flaunted its tail and strut about in a majestic way,

It aimed  to attract the peahens gathered on the grounds that day.

Unfortunately the peahens had their own little game of fun,

They decided to ignore the proud peacock and enjoy the run.

The peacock shred its feathers and blew them off,

The little boy caught them, said, ‘rejection is tough!’

Daily Prompt : Gingerly

In response to one-word prompt : Gingerly

Gingerly I was walking to school that day,

Not knowing who I would meet will say.

How long have you been in this snowy town?

I looked up  and saw a woman with a frown.

Cautiously I replied with a hesitant smile,

‘My dear believe it or not it’s been a while,

But I cannot get used to the icy roads of winter,

Each day I count how long will this weather,

Give me grief, I’m sorry for complaining,

This is truly something I wasn’t expecting.’

She gave me a sarcastic look and moved on,

I watchfully took small steps to my destination!

Daily Prompt : Dancing

In response to prompt : Dancing

Virtue and Moir’s  Ice dancing is a joy to see,

For their gold medal prize, they exclaimed gee.

I watched their free dance on TV and thought,

None of the competitors had a shot.

Their performance was too good that night,

Even though the  others tried with their might!

Daily Prompt : Egg

In response to prompt : Egg

I met a strange woman  named Casket,

She said, ‘do not put all your eggs in one basket.’

I struggled to know what she meant by this,

I decided to ask my smart friend Bliss.

At first he laughed and made fun of me,

Then he said, ‘I’ll explain over a cup of tea.’

Okay  I said, ‘it’s simple to make one cup for you,

If you promise to answer my question too.’

Then after a long pause, he finally said,

‘Diversify your investment, instead,

Of putting all your money in one stock .’

I said, ‘you’re so  smart,  you rock!’

Daily Prompt : Simmer

In response to prompt : Simmer

To simmer the meat I turned down the heat,

The heat was so low the meat wasn’t good to eat.

I learned my lesson and tried the second time,

Hoping to correct my mistake I added thyme.

It still did not work out as well as I thought,

So I went back to basics with the meat I bought!
