Everyday Inspiration,Day Seventeen: A Map As Your Muse


Day Seventeen : A Map As Your Muse

This is the image of part of my backyard. as you can see the grass is green, it means it’s summer there are some perennial flower plants on the left. When  we bought the house, there were no plants, all of it was grass. It was difficult to mow this part, so I suggested perhaps it’s easier to take care of the plants. We got help to remove the grass and dig the spot to get ready for the perennials.

In the front of our house we have a row of  thorny hedge, whoever planted them was thinking of keeping the prowlers out of the property, I think.

This image only shows snow bank  now, it’s winter it came with a bang, blizzard which caused people to get their shovels and get some long-awaited exercise!

Day Seventeen: Map as Your Muse

Inspiration Poem

Standing tall is this grey house,

No one fears not even a mouse, 

I know why he wanted to buy it

 Because school is so close to it

It’s a lame excuse I forcefully said,

Don’t argue with me he turned red

We spend money to get it fixed

My attitude is completely mixed

I try to look at a brighter side

It’s a stone’s throw from the mall

If I’m bored I’d make  a quick call

My friend who’s like a doll

She says Mary don’t worry,

We’ll open a stall and sell curry!

Baltimore Street is in the corner of Elizabeth Avenue. If you walk along Elizabeth Ave., you will see  newly constructed houses on your right, keep walking until you come to the light, cross the street, still on Elizabeth Ave, you will find a gas station on your right, keep walking, you will see another street, do not cross the street, but turn on your right and you will see the Shopper’s Drugmart, walk until you are facing the store, on its right there are doors leading inside, go in and you will see a Tim Horton’s Doughnut place, on its left there are stairs going down where there is a shop where you can order, tea or coffee, and some sandwiches, there are chairs outside the store to sit and enjoy your coffee.

You can get out and walk in the park, where there is a soccer field. To go to the park you have to cross the road . It is opposite the Churchill square strip mall, There is a statue of Winston Churchill. This is all for now.

TRANSLATION:

Mother means Bangladesh in this poem.

Today, from the heart of Bangladesh

O Mother, when did you appear in such an exceptional way!

O Mother I repeatedly  gaze at you,

I cannot have enough of you.

O Mother the doors of your temple are unlocked today!

Your right hand carries the blazing sword,

Your left removes fear and apprehension.

Your eyes reveal affection,

while your forehead conveys fierce resolve.

O ,Mother what an image of you,

I behold today.

O my dear Mother your untied hair conceals thunder

The edge of your garment glitters in the sun.

I neglected to look at you,

thinking my sad mother ,

Is alone in the deserted house .

There is no end to her misfortune.

But where is your miserable attire?

Where is that  sad smile?

The sky is adorned with

The lustre of your feet.

On this night of misery

Flood the world with the flow of happiness,

Your courage resonates in  my heart!
