In response to daily post’s one-word prompt : Juicy
On the backyard of our home in Comilla Bangladesh, we had a lot of mango trees. Some of the trees had mangoes that were really juicy, they were called chushnio aam(mango capable of being sucked) all we had to do was make a hole on top and squeeze the juice in our mouth.
I never liked mangoes but I had fun watching my brother sucking the juice of these special mangoes. He was little and had no idea how to hold the mango properly, so more juice ended up on his shirt than his mouth. I’d make fun of him and say, ‘looks like you shared the juice with your clothes and your face?’
You could see half of his face covered with yellow mango juice. 🙂

(Shaphalata) Success by Rabindranath Tagore
There are times when I wonder, deprived of work
my time is wasted morning and afternoon,in fact the whole day.
No my lord it is not wasted,all those moments___
You have accepted them
O my God. My mind is
enveloped with thoughts of your creation
you have awakened the seeds by letting them sprout,
you have helped the flower to bloom.
You have transformed the flower into juicy fruit,
I am sleepy tired and lying lazily in bed
thought all my work is left undone.
I woke up in the morning opened my eyes;
saw, nature was ready to greet me with all its splendour.
