Daily Prompt: Pensive

Today’s one-word prompt is : Pensive

This morning I walked over to a strip mall  which is walking distance from my house. In front of the bank I saw a man with a sign, saying he was hungry and homeless. He looked withdrawn, perhaps wondering whether the passers by care to read his sign.

I immediately thought of Marianne our blogger friend, who tells us to do something good if you meet a homeless and hungry man.

Well Marianne I bought two Tim Horton food cards for him, I gave it to him, he was appreciative and thanked me twice. I feel so good I was able to do something nice.

“Otithi” (guest) Poem by Tagore Translation and posted by Ranu

Pooja

Pooja (Photo credit: timtom.ch)

Love came ,it opened the door and left,

It will not come any more.

There is one other guest left to come,

He was the last known.

One day he will come and extinguish the lamp,

And take me with him in a chariot__

from a home to some homeless

Starry planet.

Until then I will sit alone with my door open,

I will complete all my work.

When the guest arrives

there will be no obstacle in his path.

The Pooja preparation will be done,

I will be ready__

Quietly I will extend my arms, and receive

the homeless guest.

One who opened the door and left

while leaving he said,

“Wipe off the tears,there is another

guest to come”.

His last words were, “complete stringing

Remove the thorns of life____

In this new abode you the homeless,

Carry this perfect garland.”

DP Daily Prompt: You’ve got the power Post by Ranu

Imperialism

I hope this power enables me to bring some law and order in the world. I would put an end to imperialism. The smaller and weak nations will  not be bullied by the imperialists.

Next I’ll make sure,there are no one homeless. No one hungry and deficient in vigour; sickly,feeble.

War will be unknown,people will not be afraid of getting killed in their sleep. All the weapons of mass destruction will be eliminated from the face of the earth.

Proper care will be taken of our environment. There will be no such thing as “Smog”.

Freedom will prevail.

Daily Prompt: Idyllic posted by ranu

My ideal community is a beautiful place.

Garden full of flowers for everyone to see,

children in colourful attire dancing with glee.

Hunger and homelessness is unknown here,

the citizens are busy spreading the cheer.

If you want to see this wonderful place,

come one,come all to our wide open space.

Our young and old are here to greet you,

why not check it out won’t you.

Our roads and streets are safe and serene,

we are making sure our community is green.

There is no scattered litter in our town I swear,

the workers are always there to take care.

Our Mayor works hard to keep the government running,

his looks are scary,but his work is stunning.

I challenge you all to find me a place,

full of contented people who are occupying our community’s space.
