Daily Prompt : Jiffy

In response to prompt : Jiffy

I watched the twister coming closer,

It took a moment to spread disaster.

The house disappeared in a Jiffy,

And the magician yelled catastrophe!

Sally jumped cried out, ‘foul,

I never heard the twister growl.’

For a few second, Mom said nothing,

The lame cook bellowed, ‘I found something!’

What they found or lost is not the question,

It is now time for serious reflection!

Song , Singers Talat and Rafi posted and translated by Ranu

In the dark nights of sorrow (Rafi sings this part)

Do not lose courage

Brighter  days will surely come

Wait for the opportune moment.

…………

I am suffering from pain all my life( Talat)

There is no remedy for it

I do not have the courage

To deceive myself.

………

Do not be suspicious   (Rafi)

Believe in yourself

Brighter days will definitely  come

Wait for the opportune moment

In the dark nights of sorrow.

…………

I am always suffering(Talat)

What did I ever get from hope

I continuously took risk

What did I get for being honest.

………

Do not destroy the love in your heart

Keep the passion alive

Better days are yet to come

Wait for the opportune moment!

……………….

This did not console my heart(Talat)

I have gained nothing from this news

The night continues to be dark

I’m not hopeful of a brighter morning.

………………..

Harvesting in Spring will soon be here(Rafi)

After another autumn

Spring will take its place

Wait for this auspicious season!

365 days Writing Prompt: HA ha ha

Tell us a joke knock–knock joke, long story with an unexpected punchline, great zinger— all jokes are welcome.

There was a passenger aboard a bus, he didn’t know the local language except a few words, he thought the few words he knew would be quite sufficient for him.

As he was thinking he noticed his stop was not too far, he pondered about the two words he knew, one was “Girega” , meant fall and “hum” meaning I, feeling confident and proud of himself, he approached the driver, he looked out his stop was close and he didn’t make his move yet i.e didn’t tell the driver   his stop was close and that’s where he wanted to get off. 

 In   a moment of panic he yelled “hum girega” meaning I will fall.

The bus driver tried to calm him down and replied,”Nahin Babu tum nahin girega” meaning, ” No sir you won’t fall.”

This dialogue went on for a minute or two, realizing that he would miss his stop, the passenger jumped off the bus!

Writing Prompt: Earworm

What song is stuck in your head(or on permanent rotation in your CD or MP3) Why does it speak to you?

The following song by Celine Dion is stuck in my head.

 

The song reminds me of the sinking of the ,”Titanic’. I can visualize how traumatic it was for all those people who thought they were safe and suddenly the claim it was unsinkable was only a claim.

They were caught by surprise and were I think desperately looking for something to hold onto to live. This type of catastrophe makes us realize how fragile life is and we should enjoy life every moment we’re alive the best way we can because tomorrow we may not see the light of day.

DP Daily Prompt: Careless Whisper

pad2014-s.png (308×60)

Regrets? Yes I have some. I always feel that sometimes what I feel doesn’t always stay in my brain ,but I cannot wait to let it known the moment the thought enters my brain.

It doesn’t make me feel any better, as my conscience starts working full time, telling me it was a dumb thing to do.

When I was  very young my older sister often ridiculed me in front of her friends. She’d question me where I was, she thought if she constantly reminded me I do not study enough, like her I’d sit with a book 24/7. I was never one to hide behind a book, I did my own thing I played, watched my mother cook, I sat with my dad and asked all sorts of questions about anything that came to mind.

My sister would sit with her books all day.Now that I think about it , she didn’t really study all the time,she certainly wanted to impress my Dad.

One day as usual she started criticizing  about my study habits, I was fifteen at that time, she had already completed her masters degree, when she wouldn’t keep quiet, I said,”One day I’d also get my masters degree and when that happens ,no one will ask a few years later what class each of us got to make a comparison, they’d only say,good for you Ranu, you also got the degree we are proud of you.”

She was so surprised she could not say another word. Did I regret for being so bold, I did not, I was proud of myself for finally telling her off!

DP Daily Prompt: Standstill Post by Ranu

Time is important in our lives,yet we aren’t concerned when we waste it. Whether we  do so by idle gossip,lazing around,watching television,or nothing at all. Despite the fact we keep hearing the words “Time and Tide waits for no one!” 

If “Time” itself gives us the opportunity by standing still,for just a moment,what on earth can we tweak in,at that precise moment? Personally,I’d pray to God to forgive me for all the time I’ve wasted doing unimportant things when I had the time to thank Him for being so kind to me , providing me with : food,shelter,all the necessities of life and above all friends and awesome people I met in this life!

Nazrulgeeti sung by Firoza Begum Post and translation by Ranu

You said you will come for pilgrimage with me.

You did not come,alas you did not come,

my hope drowned in

the ocean water.

If I go away,

I will always remember your words,

just to hear those words,

I may come back.

Only hope will not be enough,

I will wait in expectation,

in my hour of loneliness,

I will play the flute in memory of you.

Behold it’s my time to leave,

tell me your words will not be untrue.

At some auspicious moment,

in the twinkling of an eye,

our voice will interlock!

Death by Tagore translated by Ranu

Death    by Rabindranath  Tagore

I don’t know death.  Today my thoughts are focused on it

I am trembling with fear every moment.

English: Rabindranath Tagore Русский: Тагор, Р...

English: Rabindranath Tagore Русский: Тагор, Рабиндранат (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

My eyes are tearful, at the thought of leaving this world

I own my life and I am hugging  it with

both my arms.

O ignorant one,

who has claimed life and death as their own

from the time of birth  without your knowledge,

it has been decided! In the morning of death

you will see that face again

one you will know at that moment

I love my life so much, this is why I have a firm belief,

I will certainly love death just as much.

An infant cries in fear when it is removed from a mother’s breast,

the next moment it regains its comfort when it finds the breast.
