Daily Prompt: Hesitate

In response to daily post’s  one -word prompt:  Hesitate

Sometimes I hesitate to try a dish,

Especially if it’s prepared with fish.

Some fish are tasty some are not,

What’ll  I do if the one I’ve got is rot?

Do I say outright,

Or just sit tight,

And pretend I’m not well enough to try the dish?

……………………………………..:)

 

 

 

monay ki dwidha rekhe gele(hesitate) by Tagore Indrani Sen translated and posted by Ranu

That evening ,

what did you hesitate to tell me,

before you left?

I watched you turn around,

you had something on your mind,

Your indecision stopped you

from telling me.

I saw your smile.

Now I am sitting here,

my beating heart wants

to know why did you

hesitate to tell me?

You are far away on this earth,

I see the cranes flying above,

my pain soars with them,

Hoping I will have my answer.

I asked you many times,

What you did not tell me

when you left remained

painfully  yet

like the fragrance

of Jasmine!
