Explore the room you’re in as if you’re seeing it for the first time.Pretend you know nothing.What do you see? Who is the person who lives there?

I am entering this room for the first time. Let me there is a queen size bed, a desk , some books arranged in order. There are two chairs, there is a table with a laptop computer. This must be the place where the inhabitant sits and uses his/her computer.

On one of the walls I see a family portrait and single portraits of Mom on one side and Dad on the other.Opposite wall has another family portrait on the wall. there is small stand with a TV on it.

In one corner is the ensuite room, oh this is where the bathroom is located.

There are two large windows facing East.

There are two dressers opposite each other, they are fairly large. I think this is where their clothes are. I see two closets too, why do they need so many places to store their clothes. I think they should donate some of them, it may be of help for some people?

Oh I  forgot the floor is wooden, I like this kind of floors it’s easier to clean. There is a small porch outside this room with another closet on its side.

WOW I loved exploring this room, I hear footsteps I better run along fast before the resident sees me. I really had to get out fast, my heart is palpitating I need to sit down, there I see a tree stump, I will sit there and breathe easy, now I’m sitting on the stump and feeling great! 🙂

365 Writing Prompts: Non sequitur

Write a post about anything you’d like , but be sure to include this sentence somewhere in the final paragraph.”He tried to hit me with a forklift.”

My grandparents had a beautiful house in the village, my grandpa  loved gardening,  we visited the village to see the house, grandpa and grandma had passed away before we went there, but our uncle and aunt lived there.

I and my siblings decided we’d explore the part where my grandparents lived, we noticed a garden, we went in and were amazed to find so many different fruit trees we’d never seen, we tasted them and loved the taste.

In the evening we went inside I asked mom to tell us the names of the fruits, As she was telling the names I wrote them on a piece of paper. I wanted to show my friends how many different fruits we ate when we were visiting our grandpa’s village.

Next morning we went on the dirt road to see what else was there for us to explore, on our way we met a crusty old man on a forklift truck, he yelled at us and told us to move away from his path, we were having fun we made all kinds of faces at him,  he got off his truck , said something loud which I did not understand  we still  refused to get out of his way, he was furious and  “he tried to hit me with a forklift.”

Writing Prompt: Cliche

Yes I truly agree cliches become cliches for a reason. There are lessons we learn from them,which is why we still use them.

My experience with ,”A bird in hand is worth two in the bush,”  has taught me lessons I wouldn’t have learned otherwise.

It happened when I was looking for a teaching job. I got one of the jobs I applied for. I was uneasy about taking the job,because I thought if I accept it I may not be able to explore other possibilities. I kept thinking and put my acceptance letter on hold. The authorities wanted an answer within a  couple of days,I wasn’t overly anxious to tell them I’d take it.

When I didn’t see any other job prospect, I quickly wrote my acceptance letter. Unlucky for me when the authorities failed to get an answer from me, they thought the obvious i.e.,she is not interested. They reopened their file  and gave the job to the applicant next on their list.  I was left in the cold,well how’s that for,”A bird in hand is worth two in the bush,” I told myself. From then on I took any job that came my way, teaching I mean!

O ,Mother Of Bengal let your sons experience good and bad deeds,sorrow and joy,ups and downs in life.

Let your sons be human

O most affectionate mother land__in your land of millions

Don’t keep them as innocent children any more.

Let them explore all the countries whichever is the place

make them independently find that abode.

Every step of the way you are protecting them from making small mistakes

do not restrict them and hold on to them as obedient sons.

by giving their life ,enduring pain and suffering, alone

let them distinguish between good and evil.

Take your pious,weak and peaceful sons

let them be homeless, daring and reckless.

O, my admirable mother you have kept your seven million sons,

as Bengalis_____you have failed to raise them as human beings.
